My purpose/definition of this life varies from time-to-time but one fact that remains constant is the constant desire to be significant. This in effect raises the question: What legacy do I want to leave behind?
I want to inspire, mentor, coach, to be a distinguished example, to instil belief and motivate fellow humans to step out of their comfort zones and unleash their full potential in all they do.
I will give the best in everything I do. I will always aim to be the best in every discipline or industry I am involved in. Never falling into a comfort zone and understanding there is always room for improvement.
I want to be recognised as an individual with integrity who lives by strong honesty and morality values. I will always stick to the set of values that I have defined for myself and I will step away from any distractions that may lead me to breaking these values.
I want to help my family members in all avenues that I can with the resources I will have at the time. I will try by all means to teach them how to fish instead of giving them the fish, through this they will learn and grow as it is more worthwhile to teach someone to do something, than to do something for them.
Finally I want to be a complete person, always finishing what I start and not being complacent or giving up along the way. In that I also want to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Life has social aspects, work aspects, belief aspects that all require an allocation of my time and I will keep these balanced not sacrificing one for the other.
If someone wants to measure me on a metric, they should measure me on the number of people whose lives I have made a positive impact on.
