Don’t worry about being successful, but work toward being significant and the success will naturally follow.  – Oprah Winfrey.

A while ago I posted this link to Jim Carey’s speech given at a college commencement. It is full of great quotes, however the one that moved me the most was, “The affect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.” That is extremely powerful and full of truth. What better way to leave your mark on the world than to positively affect the lives of others?

So many people chase a dream of being rich. They want yacht, the multi-million dollar home, the Bentley, etc. But very few consider the impact they will leave on those around them.

Question: How do you find the inspiration to be someone else’s inspiration?
