WHAT’S IT FOR?
In my role as MC I get to meet a lot of really cool people, and not just the celebrities!
Last week Samuel Johnson was the final speaker at the plenary session. He is a man on a mission and he is really focussed.
I have met many business people who get to a point where they ask, “What’s it for?” Their quest was to “make it” but what does that mean?
What is life for, why are they working hard, what counts, what is merely noise and why should I get out of bed today?
There are young people who experience the same thing and I suspect it is a contributing factor to a lot of the depression that people suffer.
Sam is crystal clear on what he is doing. He is living for his sister. She has terminal breast cancer and when he asked her “What legacy can I leave for you?” (expecting her to say go bungee jumping or jump out of a plane) she said to him, “I want you to ride around Australia on a unicycle and raise over a million dollars for cancer research.”
So that is what he has been doing. He is 2/3rds of the way there in distance and has raised over $800,000 to date.
He has also been spreading the message about breast cancer awareness. From his presentations and challenges along the cycle route to selling merchandise, including my favourite bumper sticker
I urge you to find out more about what Sam is doing by heading to www.LoveYourSister.org where you can discover some of the challenges, buy some merchandise or donate to the cause.
Sam is crystal clear on what he is doing this for and has some key strategies to get it done.
What about you Dear-Reader? Do you know what life is for? How you live your day is how you live your life so find your why and get cracking!
