Here is The Monday Motivation (TMM) for you! Have a super wonderful week ahead.
The youth of today can make the world a better place by believing that they can and doing something about that. The youth of today can make the world a better place by realizing that, on your deathbed (that means on their deathbeds too) it’s not the quantifiable that is going to matter. We know this: we know it’s not the grades, and diplomas, and salaries, and raises, and promotions, and mortgages, and properties, and designations that define your purpose as a human being – that become the ultimate legacy of your life as you live it, and once you’re dead. We know what matters most are the relationships we make and the impact we leave behind on the people we meet. Our legacy is how we treated people, how we treated ourselves, what we cared about, and how we cared, and what and how we contributed to our community and the greater world community-at-large.
One of those ways goes back to valuing the unidentifiable – it's the profound power that comes from doing something for the sake of having done it, not for the sake of money. I think that every young person can find value in volunteering. There is something extremely powerful and profound about working without the expectation of money, and about human sharing without the exchange of money. It’s pure, and genuine, and empowering – and let’s be honest, it just makes you feel good.
You don’t just have to take my word for it, here are some pretty smart people with legacies that make them fairly reliable sources.
