You can’t be just anybody, if you intend to be a “somebody.” An “anybody” is just part of the landscape: they don’t stand out; they don’t make a sound; they don’t make a difference. They’re like camouflage—they wanna stay hidden.
You have a responsibility to be something more than part of the background. Consider it part of the dues you have to pay to be a part of the world’s biggest fraternity: humanity!
You have a place in the foreground, and that place is carved out by your making a difference in this world. To be somebody means you make an impact regardless of the size. Being a “somebody” means when others think of key moments in their own lives, they think of the part you played.
Your life has meaning because you were given it to help someone else; and you can be intentional about living this way, or you can just keep on being a selfish bastard. Don’t go to the grave without a gratified conscience set free from the chains of guilt and regret.
Regardless of your personal hang-ups, your capacity to release positive energy in this world to affect the lives of others is all the proof you need that your life has a greater purpose than self-satisfaction.
This is what I’m covering in this new, motivating series Be Somebody & Make a Difference in Your World. Watch Episode 1 now:
