Earning a living

Tuesday August 10, 2010 #244

“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.”

 ~Woodrow Wilson

JAMmer NLD shares this quote from President Wilson which reminds us of the worthy purposes for the life we spend “earning a living.”  It really isn’t about you and the “things” you want for yourself and your family.  It is about the many, possibly thousands of people you interact with and influence.  The example you show them impacts those lives.  Whether a member of a small team, or a leader of thousands, do you enrich the world or just yourself?  What value will you add today? Your true wealth depends upon your answer.
