Surviving to Thriving – Mental Toughness (Steve Harris)
Chapter 1. WHY SURVIVING TO THRIVING? (Continued from last week)
Significance – become better people
The words that come to the fore to describe significance, and in my mind with these you become a better person, are decency, service, compassion, volunteering, charitable giving and making a positive difference. i.e. you let your humanity shine through.
Seek new knowledge
The first of three action items on my list to become better people is to seek the knowledge and skills that makes you relevant, then you move on to becoming remarkable and finally rare. For more details on this, refer to chapter nine on competence.
Help those less fortunate
The second is to help those less fortunate. For example, think of the work tennis legend, Roger Federer, has undertaken in poor communities. Yes, Federer gave money; however, more significantly, he practiced effective altruism in his philanthropic journey by becoming personally engaged in the effort to create a virtuous cycle. For more on this topic you may want to read about Good Ventures in The Business of Changing the World (Kumar, 2019). Their mission is to help humanity thrive. The book exposes you to options where markets created by rich and middle-class people can be leveraged and expanded to provide services for the poor.
What do you feel about becoming more significant? Write to us and let us know.
