Don’t just aspire to make a living; Aspire to make a difference.
– Denzel Washington
I just thought I’ll put this here. These are very powerful words – one that struck me straight the second I heard it from a Youtube video. Do not just aspire to make a living. In other words, don’t be contented with just working and doing your day job and getting by. Try something even bigger. Something that will make a difference on somebody else’s lives.
Whatever your job is, make it your principle to always go an “extra mile”. Make the customer happy, treat your clients like a king. At home, aspire to be an inspiration for your kids, or your partner. Be a star in your workplace. Be an example for everyone to follow. Don’t be just another ant in a colony. Be someone who carves a new path and leaves a legacy.
