As individuals, we want to provide value to the world and receive recognition. It gives us a sense of accomplishment, purpose, and makes us feel significant. Through creating value, we contribute to each other's lives and are able to make a lasting impact.
There are many ways to create value, but one way is to inspire. When we inspire each other to take action on ideas, dreams turn into reality. We are often in our heads and fail to execute. By pushing people to the edge and leading by example, we show them anything is possible.
A wonderful way to add value to society is to make something better. Improving a product or service and making it world class has the potential to benefit millions of people. Sometimes we don't have to reinvent the wheel -- we can make the wheel better.
The most important asset we have in this life is time. This is something we can't buy more of. Sometimes creating value can be as simple as giving our time and attention. It could be taking 5 minutes of our time to listen to someone’s day or being attentive to someone in their time of need. If we can positively impact at least one person, that's a win.
No matter what value we provide, it's important to stay authentic and true to who we are. We want to genuinely give without expectation. Creating value is the ultimate way to positively impact this life we all cherish.
"Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value." -Albert Einstein
