What a terrific book. Dr. Stanley points out that the only way to truly be successful is to follow the Lord's plan for you. Pray. Ask the Lord what He wants you do. Pray for the strength and courage to do it. Listen. Follow. They are simple guidelines to being successful. Success is not always measured by wealth and material things. Those are nice and all, but without the Lord, it's like trying to "buy love"; it just doesn't work.
Dr. Stanley relates certain experience to Scripture in ways that truly reinforce the messages.
I am actually going to go back and re-read the part on goals. I will set mine with the Lord's guidance, for maximum success potential.
I am a Christian, but not a Baptist. Dr. Stanley writes his book not on Baptist ideals but on true Christian ideals---right from the Bible. I am actually looking at purchasing some of his other books for additional spiritual knowledge and growth.
I will be giving this book as a Christmas gift to my brothers and sisters!

I really enjoyed this book! It was more of a devotional book than anything else, touching on the principles of reaching true happiness, success, and evils such as greed and being negative. Success God's Way reminded me that in order to have true success one has to put God first and everything else will fall into place. I have now adapted one of the techniques that Dr. Stanley stated in the ladder part of his book, which is prioritize the initiatives and goals that you want to accomplish for the next day on a flash card before you go to bed and then put it in your pocket throughout the whole day. It is amazing how much more one can stay on task. The true examination I believe that this book illustrates is are one's goals Godly purposed goals striving to go along with God's plan, or are they individualized goals that do not fit in God's initiative, which makes their purpose lost and unmeaningful? Definately read Success God's Way!!!!!

I really enjoyed Dr. Stanley's book about success. In it he gives a biblical perspective about success, and how to achieve it. I like the fact that he uses many different examples of success from the Bible, and tells you how to apply these lessons to your own life. This book has really made me take a hard look at my life, and the goals I have set for myself.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a Christian perspective on success. Having said that, unlike others reviewers, this is not the best "how-to" success book that I have read. The Success Journey by John Maxwell provides better "tools" and "methods" for how to set goals, and achieve success. But Maxwell's book lacks a Christian perspective on the subject. Therefore, I recommend that those readers looking for books to help you plan your course along the pathway to success, look into both books, John Maxwell's and Dr. Stanley's.

Format: Hardcover
Stanley's book is based on important reminders that ultimately our successes should be characterized by goals set with God in mind and that it is too legalistic to apply a cookie cutter mold and say every Christian will become a pauper or must be poor in order to be humble. Clearly being a servant doesn't always mean that we must be struggling financially as well. The important thing to remember is that success in the eyes of the world however is measured differently than in the eyes of God and Stanley does a good job of reminding Christians that if you approach your faith in a way that you are determined to define your successes in a way apart from considering what God wants for you life than we still hold ourselves to be the centre of the universe and not God. I give it four stars only because i try to reserve five starts for my favorite books, but this is definetly a worthwhile read.

Once again, Stanley has written a down-to-earth book with practical advice. The Lord's definition and way of success radically differs from the world, and Stanley encourages us to focus on how precious we really are to God.
Among the many excellent points Stanley offers are:
1. God's ways are different from the world's ways.
2. Principles of goal-setting.
3. Ask God for guidance and leadership when goal-setting.
4. Keys to good time management.
5. Time wasters to avoid.
6. Keys for successful believing.
7. Principles about persistence.
8. Trust God to order your steps and arrange the details of your life!
Again, these are just a few of the many excellent topics covered in the book. Highly recommended and is an excellent supplement to the Bible!

Dr. Stanley's book came at a perfect time for me. We are a "Self-help" world now. With several books published on positive thinking, etc....someone has finally addressed positive thinking from the Christian perspective. This book outlines "how-to's" to become a success, but shows you how these principles are not anything new. They are God's "how-to's." I would recommend this book to anyone. This is one of those few applicable books you will ever purchase.
There is nothing "watery or cotton-candy" about this book. Nothing but solid biblical truths! Dr. Stanley shows you how to plug your dream into God's scheme!
