Success has different meanings for different people. It can be quantified into earning millions of dollars while others see it as being a company’s top-performing employee. Everyone wants to be successful, but very few think about being of value.
Don’t just settle being successful; remember to be of value as well. It’s like what Albert Einstein said, “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” When you become of value, you earn that sense of purpose. It gives you a direction on what else you want for your life. Rather than simply aiming for a target, aim to be the type of person who will inspire others.
Our goals help us become the person we want to be by having several accomplishments. Through these accomplishments we develop certain skills and build our characters in order to achieve our ultimate goal. Then, we become better people and realize our true value.
Being a success at your career is good, but being of value is even better. The great minds and great people are not celebrated for their achievements, but for their contributions. They helped shaped how we can have better lives by providing solutions and products that will help everyone. So next time you are setting your goals, look deeper on what kind of person you want to be remembered for.
