The viral nature of the internet, along with 24/7 access, has allowed many people to become rich or famous in a very short period of time. Jason Russell, producer of the Kony 2012 video, reportedly reached 100 million people in a week.
His unrestrained attempt to manage his instant success; however, led to extreme exhaustion and a public meltdown. This ultimately hurt the very cause he was promoting.
Many of us will experience seasons in our life of success, wealth, or opportunities that can tempt us to push beyond our physical limits.
Proverbs 23:4 teaches, “Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint.”
If success grabs you unexpectedly, pace yourself. Restraint will result in a healthier and better long term result.
