We are often very hard on ourselves when it comes to rating whether or not we consider ourselves to be successful. However, others tend to see us much differently. In this touching video, this is especially true. Wait until you see how these people are rated by their loved ones, as compared to how they rated themselves!
Participants in this video are asked to rate their success from a score of 1-10, and their loved ones are asked to do the same for them. As you will see, most people see themselves more negatively than those who care for them. It's something that many can relate too. Often we don't give ourselves enough credit for the hard work we do. Most of us are guilty of being very harsh on ourselves because we compare ourselves to others with more money or success. But it's a lot easier to see someone you care for positively because you see them as the wonderful friend or family member that they are.

Seven years ago, Spencer Nee was homeless and battling alcohol addiction in Denver, Colorado. Today he's sober after finding Jesus and now leads a national cause designed to help others facing similar ordeals.
In 2007, an estimated 3.5 million people (1.3 million of them being children) were likely to experience homelessness in a given year, according to a study by the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty. Many of these people were just like Nee, ordinary Americans who somehow lost their way — although for Nee it was a battle with drugs and alcoholism that led to his struggles.
"I was in a really terrifying place seven years ago," Nee told The Christian Post. "I was homeless and drinking about half a gallon of vodka a day. I had lost my relationships with my friends and family and was pretty much completely alone. I had lost all hope. I couldn't keep a job … my day was centered around not getting sick. I would start getting sick if I didn't have enough alcohol." more >>

Christianity is said to be on the decline in the United States, according to a Pew Research survey, and 2 billion people around the world still haven't heard the name of Jesus Christ, according to David Platt, president of the International Mission Board, an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention.
At a time when more people are said to be turning away from faith, one group of believers has developed a new, innovative way of spreading the Gospel to ultimately propel people closer to God, and it seems to be working.
Socality has been described by its founder as a "new form of evangelism" and a movement that is "committed to creating spaces of belonging online and turning these into real life transactions." To put it simply, Socality connects believers and non-believers alike, mostly via social networking sites like Twitter and Instagram, for the purpose of bringing them closer to faith. more >>
