"It is through accomplishment that man makes his contribution and contribution is life's greatest reward."
~ John Portman
I want to be remembered. Many of my recent thoughts have been very ego driven and I can't decide if it is a good thing or a bad thing.
You see, I want to be remembered. I want to do something so significant in my life that I will be remembered for many, many generations. I want to be remembered as the founder of “this” or the pioneer of “that.” I want to be remembered as a person who significantly changed the world.
I have struggled with this. After all, I am such a proponent of living a life of PERSONAL significance, so what is this thing that has me all wound up to be significant not only beyond my own life, but far beyond my own time?
As I reflect on it, I begin to see how it all fits together. Doing great things in the world for me is my personal significance. It is what will bring me satisfaction with my life. It is what will make my life seem worth while…to me.
Being of service to others has always been a part of my life plan. It has always been my path; in whatever way I can make it happen, I serve others. Now I realize that it is one of the driving forces in my life, and I want to make it significant, not only to myself, but to mankind, and the world.
I have no idea what it is that I will do. I don’t know what my contribution will be, but I know that it needs to be something absolutely spectacular…so my eyes are wide open, my mind is on the lookout.
