Extra Points – Significant

This week’s focus point…SignificantCapt Jack and Dan

Last Friday, I was meeting with a new mentoring client and we were discussing his move into the world of consulting. He made a comment that really caught my attention. He said, “Dan, I have always been successful, however we define that. However, I’m at a point in my life where I want to be significant.”

Wow.

The word significant has tremendous significance. It seems to me that when people start creeping into their 40s, the issue of being more than successful in making money begins to seep into our consciousness. What does being significant mean?

For me, my definition is simple. Being significant means making a meaningful contribution to the success and/or happiness of another human being. I want to be significant to my wife; to my daughters; to my extended family; to my friends; to my clients; and to my community. That means more than merely being in the room. It means offering something of compelling value – love, concern, opportunity, teaching, experience, wisdom, hope…

What’s being significant mean to you?

How about this for a “never been done before but should have been” opportunity? Email me or post a comment on my blog of one way you’ve been significant in the life or business of someone else last week. Just one. I will gather all of them and pick three at random (I’m not about to judge significance!). Those three people will receive a free copy of my book, Unleashed (see below). Let’s see if we can reward the significance in your life!
