Why are you doing what you’re doing today? Is it just for the money or is it for something more?
Money without a mission is merely materialism. If you don’t have a true mission behind your money, if you’re not looking for a way to create a good impact on the lives of others, you’re just trying to have a lot of money and be comfortable, that’s great but the truth is, it’s just materialism. You need to have a mission to build a legacy that will have a great impact on other people’s lives.
Watch this episode to learn more about the importance of legacy and how you can create one for yourself!
“A friend was talking about his father who had passed away. He didn’t have a lot of wealth, he didn’t have a lot of money, in fact, he was a butcher. He wasn’t anybody of great financial stature like his son, but the impact he made on the community was tremendous.”
