Spirituality and Success

One common trait that is often found in successful people is a well-developed and mature spiritual life. This most often comes through a religious practice of some sort, but it can be found in very secular lifestyles as well. I feel like this is known and understood by my friends and colleagues; however, most of them seem to recoil at the idea of discussing spirituality in public institutions. It seems to me we should promote spiritual development if we want students to become well-rounded and successful human beings. I am not talking about endorsing any particular expression of spirituality here–no official religion. But I am talking about the idea of making spiritual develop something we actively weave into our institutional goals, classroom instruction, campus activities, and general college life. Any thoughts?

    I agree 100%. I am Christian and my relationship with God really helps me stay focused and possitive. I feel that my education also reflects an important part of who I am and I want to glorify God with every aspect of my life. Also, Knowing that I can rest in His arms gives me peace in the middle of any stressfull school situation. 🙂
