“The secret to life is to find a way to do more for others than anyone else is doing. If you want to be extraordinary as a friend or business person, as a father or a lover, find a way to add more value — especially to those you love the most. I’m obsessed by this focus, and I really believe it’s the secret to not only wealth, but real lasting happiness.”

*Add more value to someone’s life today. Do more for this one person than anyone else is doing.

Ja Rule’s story goes to show that while fame and success are great, they must be used as tools to build something bigger.

A Psalm of Life

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,

Life is but an empty dream!

For the soul is dead that slumbers,

And things are not what they seem.

 

Life is real! Life is earnest!

And the grave is not its goal;

Dust thou art, to dust returnest,

Was not spoken of the soul.

*Live life to its fullest, find a purpose, and leave a lasting legacy for future generations. A Psalm of Life is meant to encourage you to spend your life, however short it might be, in pursuit of meaningful, compassionate acts that will change the lives of others…. those living, and those to come.

“I had the full princess fantasy: the white horse, the whole being saved from my life, which is ridiculous. What do I want to be saved from? My life’s great! But it’s just this weird thing that’s been hammered into my head culturally: that’s the only way to succeed, that’s the only thing that counts for a woman. I’m happy, but the fact that I’m not married and don’t have kids – it’s taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don’t feel like I’m some sort of loser.”

*If you are happily married with kids – good for you. If not, be OK with that – this doesn’t make you a loser.

Every morning Steve Jobs would ask himself this question:

“If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today?”  – Steve Jobs   

If too many days went by with the answer being “no,” he made changes in his life.

He did this until he hit a consistent yes, which drove him to countless innovations and a company worth $702 billion.
