Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value.
US (German-born) physicist (1879 – 1955)
Are you a man of success or a man of value? We all can get caught up in the wrong things. We obsess over how much money someone has or who has a nicer car. When in reality the things we should think about most is how much value are we providing. I remember a classmate in high school who was constantly worried about grades and not truly understanding the value of our education. If we focus on learning the grades will take care of themselves. If we focus on value success and fortune will follow.
I was listening to John Lee Dumas of the Entrepreneur on Fire podcast, discussing this quote with a guest. He said we should try to help more people out and give them value. If we focus on how we can help others we will in turn help ourselves. People will see us as a value.
