My friend Ed sent me the following note after we had gotten together and talked about the way we each have a drive to make a difference; to make the world a better place.

I recently spoke at an event and closed with this…

In the end:

What will matter is not what we bought, but what we gave.

What will matter is not our success, but our significance.

What will matter in not what we learned, but what we taught.

What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others.

I hope this inspires you to continue making a difference.

Ed is a leader. His words do inspire me. (Thank you, Ed.)

How about you? Are there words that inspire you? Please join the conversation with your comments…

Best regards,
