Through my own achievements in business, I've had lots to celebrate. I had access to the “BEST” in life: the money, the time to travel, the new automobiles, the private plane -- all the luxuries.
Yet I’d describe those things as markers of “success,” and, quite frankly, not even my own markers. These are the things that the outside world told me I would need to feel happy and fulfilled.
Yet what I found was that none of these things could fulfill the purpose I knew God had placed in my heart. In the end, it is the people we touch, the relationships we build, and the contribution we make that give our lives meaning.
It wasn't until I lost everything that I saw clearly how none of it actually mattered in the first place. And through that experience, I found my passion, my mission, my calling and purpose - helping others live lives of impact, significance, growth and contribution.
Thankfully, God allowed me to lose these outward markers of success so that I could learn to bolster my inward barometer of significance! When the economy collapsed in 2008, I lost my company, my marriage, and many of the "perks" of my world-class lifestyle.
However, the things I GAINED were priceless: become grateful, become humble and become "hungry" for growth and contribution.
Here are just a few of the lessons I learned during that time:
Once I had made the distinction between success and significance in my own life, I set out to help other high-achieving individuals build meaningful lives marked by true fulfillment. I work with my clients to move them through any past limitations so they can embrace the possibility of the present.
The clients I serve have already attained “success” by any outside measure. They’ve built empires, earned more money than most people have ever dreamed of, and obtained prestigious positions.
Yet, when these successful clients come my way, they are already beginning to recognize that they have sacrificed lasting SIGNIFICANCE for fleeting SUCCESS.
Many people achieve success by the world’s measures. They make a lot of money, build massive companies, and obtain prestigious positions.
What I desire to help my clients attain is a life of SIGNIFICANCE.
Success is defined as “the attainment of popularity or profit.”
Significance is “the meaning to be found in an event.”
