I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I struggled with creating this business. More than anything I've ever done in my life. Why?
Because the message of living with impact and the resulting significance is so meaningful, so powerful, and so very personal that I felt like I had to get it right. I believe that what I have to share on the subject has the potential to change your life, as it has mine.
My desire is that as you engage with this content, you make discoveries about yourself, your calling to make a difference, and your ability to live a life of impact, which you can start doing now.
Even though I'll be revealing parts of my own story, and that of others, I want you to understand that these stories aren't more important than anyone else's, including yours. I believe every person has great value. Every person matters. I believe in your potential for personal growth. I believe you have the ability to make an impact on the world.
Your story, like mine, won't be perfect. It will include wins and losses, good and bad, highs and lows, surprises and uncertainties, setbacks and successes. But this site isn't about creating a perfect life for you. It's about wanting a better life for you.
I've been an observer of people all my life. And I've noticed that most people are pretty passive about their lives. One example of this is, when asked to talk about significant regrets in their lives, 8 out of 10 people focus on actions they did not take, rather than the actions they did. They focused on things they failed to do than the things they failed at doing.
A better story will start to unfold for you when you are highly intentional about your life. I know, because I have experienced it. And now it's your turn to do the same.
In the movie Amistad, directed by Steven Spielberg, it's about a mutiny on a slave ship, and the trial occurred to determine the status of the rebellious slaves after their vessel miraculously made it to the United States. Representing the slaves was African American abolitionist lawyer Theodore Joseph, played by Morgan Freeman. His advisor was former U.S. president, John Quincy Adams, played by Anthony Hopkins. In the movie, Adams asked Joseph to summarize his case. Theodore's summary is brilliant, accurate...and devoid of emotion. Adams then counsels Joseph: "Early in my career in the law, I learned that whoever tells the best story wins."
I want you to win by telling the best story you can with your life.
Tell your best story with your life.
