A Loftier Ambition

“There is a loftier ambition than merely stand high in the world.  It is to stoop down and lift mankind a little higher.”  Henry Van Dyke

Today we find ourselves in a completely different world than that of our parents.  We are naturally drawn to succeed, but in many instances these days something seems to get lost while on our way to our destination.  There are certain individuals that remind us that the opportunity to serve helps us to progress.  It is a rare occasion to see those who have accomplished great success and will reach down to those who seek guidance, direction, and lift them.  I have the rare opportunity to work with such people.  In business today we hear a lot about investment and return, but with the leadership in LIFE, I hear something different.  It’s about helping others better themselves and achieve their dreams.  Perhaps that”s why these leaders have become so successful.  The bottom line is not measured in dollars and cents but rather in relationships and changed lives.
