Successful people move forward, in failure and success. Go live out your dream and make your ideas into reality!
For us who suffer from an “addictive personality”, which I refer to as the “go-getter trait” when discussing this with my medical colleagues.
The “addictive personality”/”go-getter” trait run about 1 in 11 people. I truly believe that God designed it this way because there is an advantage to this trait. Too few in a community, there are not enough “go-getters” to do positive things in a community. Too many, then the community doesn’t have enough stability.
The problem comes with the Sin nature of people & influence from the Enemy. A person with the “addictive personality”/”go-getter” trait WITHOUT God’s focus or “good, strong-will power”, will waste this trait on destructive behaviors, such as drugs, alcohol and video game addiction.
However with positive focus and understanding, a person with the “addictive personality”/”go-getter” trait is the highly coveted employee, amazingly productive father or mother, or even the highly valuable CEO of a company.
ALL addicts are heroes waiting to make their debut! That’s why I say, “Heroes don’t play games. They fight real battles!”
