The Success Cycle: A Journey of Wealth & Wisdom

In my late 20s, I navigated the joys and challenges of young motherhood while juggling the complexities of a struggling marriage. During these challenging times, I found friendship and respite in my local women’s church group.

At one activity, we were getting to know each other. Seated in a circle, we took turns answering questions, and when it was my turn, I drew the question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” After just a moment of pondering, I responded, “I want to be wise.”

Reflecting back almost two decades later, I’m fascinated to see how that simple declaration has guided my journey. Over the years, I’ve consciously tried cultivating wisdom in every aspect of my life. And while the path hasn’t always been easy, the journey toward wisdom has been incredibly rewarding.


It all starts with personal development – the continuous drive to expand our knowledge, hone our skills, and nurture our relationships. It’s about embracing a mindset of lifelong learning and recognizing that growth is not a destination but a way of life.

I recall the pivotal moments when I invested in various aspects of personal and professional growth. It began with my commitment to spiritual development, prioritizing practices like forgiveness and scripture study. I discovered pairing spiritual practices with other tools to create lasting and profound joy and happiness.

Building on this foundation, I gradually cultivated emotional resilience. I read books and online articles and worked with a counselor to equip myself with essential tools to navigate challenging relationships and other life adventures. Emotional resilience and intelligence have been instrumental in my journey, enabling me to bounce back from challenges with renewed determination and to maintain a positive outlook even in the face of adversity.

With a growing inner strength, I ventured into entrepreneurial pursuits as a real estate agent. During this time, I sought guidance from my first coach, who imparted invaluable business knowledge and emphasized the importance of continuous personal growth.

I gained pivotal insights in shaping my path to success through productivity and personal empowerment courses. These lessons underscored the interconnectedness between personal development and professional achievement, reinforcing that true success comes from within.

Investing in our personal growth – whether through learning new skills, cultivating positive habits, or nurturing our relationships – inevitably enhances our ability to create wealth. When I talk about “wealth,” I’m not just referring to money or material possessions. Wealth is about abundance in all its forms – from rich experiences and meaningful relationships to knowledge and opportunities.

Additionally, as we accumulate wealth in various forms, we gain the resources and freedom to invest further in our personal growth. Whether through access to educational opportunities, the ability to pursue our passions, or the freedom to contribute to causes we care about, wealth empowers us to continue evolving and expanding our potential.

This cyclical relationship between personal growth and wealth is a powerful force for evolution. As we embrace this cycle, we unlock new levels of abundance, fulfillment, and impact in our lives and the lives of those around us. It’s a path of perpetual improvement, where each step forward fuels the next, leading us ever closer to our highest potential.

Choosing Wisdom

Two and a half years ago, my dear friend Lori Jackson, the founder of ChoosingWisdom.org, graciously invited me to take over the blog while she focused on completing her book, “Hoping for Happy” (now available on Amazon). After some discussion, we decided that both Sharee Pack and I would carry on the Choosing Wisdom mission. Despite living hundreds of miles apart, Lori became our mentor, guiding both Sharee and me on the intricacies of blogging and running an online business.

Lori’s influence extends far beyond her immediate circle. She embodies the essence of Choosing Wisdom, using her positivity and influence to uplift those in her immediate vicinity, thousands of individuals online, and readers of her books, whom she may never meet in person. While Lori has stepped back to pursue new avenues of growth and service, her legacy lives on through the wealth of blog posts and resources she created during the initial five years of Choosing Wisdom.

(Another fun fact about Lori! She was the leader of the women’s group that I mentioned earlier! Her wisdom and support have been instrumental in my personal and professional growth over the past two decades.)
