My friend, Ed Brengar, has a very good post on Making A Difference – Are You Up to It?
It comes down to what are your goals. Do you just want to make money? Or do you want to make a difference? Can you imagine yourself changing the world? Or is changing yourself still too daunting a task?
If you want to make money, you can do that alone. It’s easy. If you want to make a difference, then you are going to have to collaborate. Not only collaborate, but you will have to allow yourself the privilege of changing your ideas and your thinking on many, many things.
You’ll find yourself in relationships with people who don’t care about your bank account. They care about you, as a person, who wants to make a difference.
Ed is someone who has helped me change my way of thinking on a number of things. And I buy into what he’s saying here wholeheartedly. Read his entire post.
