Thomas Jefferson was elected our third President. But as the 4th of July approaches, we are reminded that he also led a movement to manifest a vision of freedom and equality for our country. Being elected President is a tremendous personal achievement, but it was Thomas Jefferson’s vision that inspired a nation.
I’m not suggesting you abandon your personal goals. Instead, I’m suggesting you create them after you have a vision of your desired impact. Then your personal goals will be in alignment with your bigger vision. Your personal goals and achievements will be more meaningful because they are in service to your vision.
Make no mistake about it, nobody forces us to be a leader of positive change. Nobody forces us to create a vision for a better tomorrow. Deciding to step up to be a leader is a choice. The decision to positively impact this world in a way that is bigger than you is a choice. It’s your vision. It’s your choice. Inspire us.
