Living a Life of Significance

Living a Life of Significance


Living a life of significance is the foundation to a successful thriving business.

It’s all about deepening your compassion and ability to understand others.

Let’s say that two entrepreneurs start businesses on the same day in the same industry. One entrepreneur is out to make a good profit and sell his business in 10 to 20 years so he can retire on the beach.

The second entrepreneur has a vision of helping his hometown by bringing back jobs and pride to the community. He’s lived in this small town his entire life and knows almost everyone.

He’s seen his neighbors and friends - and even his dad - suffer when first the mill, and then the factory shut down.

He’s seen the stores on main street close one by one.

He’s seen the fire go out of people’s eyes as they struggled just to make ends meet.

And he wants to change all that. His new business has the potential to completely revitalize the town and give jobs to everyone who wants them.
He can see the stores on main street reopening, the restaurants full of happy customers again, and neighbors and friends excitedly greeting each other when they meet on the street.

One entrepreneur is building his business for himself.

The other is building his business for his entire community.

Who is going to wake up with a fire in his belly each and every day?

Who is going to gladly, happily work longer hours?

Who is going to do whatever it takes to make his business a success?

Find your cause – whatever it might be – that lights your fire. Then use that as your rocket fuel to propel your business from hum-drum into explosive growth.

Yeah, obviously people build bussinesses for themselves and the goal is continued profit, that's what makes the economy work so effectively...and your business work. But you bring up a significant point about basic reasons for getting involved. As marketers know that there's always something beyond self, that'll attract people....there's something very natural about it. It's kinda like growing up and attracting friends.The popular person is always more about friendship and doing for others. Takes us to the business environs, as the disposition of business people is the exactly the same.Fundamentals goal is the same,but purpose will add so much to the character of the entrepreneur. Good thoughts, thank you very much.Francis Cassady

We are all motivated by our dreams and desires. Our desires give us the drive to work long hours and overcome all kinds of struggles and obstacles. Our dreams and desires keep the fire burning. Whether the dream is a retirement on the beach, or revitalizing our community. It is our dreams that give us the energy to succeed! Great PR, Jonathan! Thank you! :-)Herb Ratsch

Jonathan your story shows what can happen when we are moved by something greater than we are. Thanks for sharing.James Randolph

Great story about having 'a cause greater than oneself'.Steve Fazia

Aiming to live a life of significance is an admirable goal Jonathon and one considerably overlooked by a 'look at me' generation often short of seeing serving others as a priority. So your article is well timed and very well expressed. I hope that many read your words and take on board your sound guidance.Tom Riach
