There are many people who must struggle for success but manage to make something of themselves, just as there are many who struggle but fail to achieve success. What is the difference between these two types of people?

On our path to success, there must be the recognition that only the power of the Light will allow us to fulfill our purpose. If we are following a higher purpose that is supported by the Light, then we will succeed.
