The meaning of life for me, is all about stewardship. It’s about making sure that the world you find is in a better shape when you leave than how it was when you arrived.
It’s about helping others, not just about helping yourself. That doesn’t mean that we should not look to better ourselves, to make ourselves wealthy, but its what we do with that wealth.
It shouldn’t be solely for our benefit? And how did we get it, was if by the exploitation of others? If so then that’s not the meaning of life.
I want to do the best for my family, but I also want to leave the world in better place, and I hope to do that via leadership, helping to equip the next generation of leaders to be better leaders.
With good leadership we can achieve good things, with great leadership we can achieve great things and I want to help people achieve great things.
If I can do that then I feel I will have achieved my meaning of life, what I was sent here to do.
