Biblical success manual II

About a week ago I posted The Biblical Success Manual from Proverbs 3:3-4. In a nutshell, Proverbs 3:3-4 says that if we demonstrate steadfast love and faithfulness we will find success in the eyes of God and man.

Today I read this verse:

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
—Joshua 1:8

This one is a bit tougher than the earlier directive, and Old Testament Israel was not able to follow the law. The gospel of Jesus Christ was not to abolish the law but to fulfill it. So aligning with Christ in belief and action should contribute to success. Perhaps the word success is the next definition I need to consider.
