Life’s most urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?” – Martin Luther King Jr.
If your purpose, if what drives you, is about you, chances are you aren’t very happy. Living a life that is focused on self isn’t rewarding. Living a life focused on your own happiness makes it very easy to blame others. When you aren’t happy – when you are the one person you care about – you become negative and pessimistic.
Living a life focused on service, a life centered on others, provides endless opportunities for optimism and success. Living with purpose, a life for others, is the greatest joy. As we reflect on 2016 and prepare for 2017, ask yourself, “what am I going to do for others?” Our path together, our commitment to our values, requires discipline and focus. When we focus on living our lives for others it makes everyone more successful.
