From William H. Cook's book, "Success, Motivation, and the Scriptures" -
"Are we to believe the same God who engineered a successful creation, gave man a sucessful human body, assigned man tasks which demanded success, stamped man's brain with a failure image?"
"Success is much more than a matter of achieving the right things; it is also a matter of being the right person."
"Of course God wants us to succeed in the task He has given us. He wants us to be mightily motivated, full of confidence, excited about life."
"For then thou shalt make thy way properous, and then thou shalt have good success." - Joshua 1:8
