the foundation of a life well lived

This is the true foundation of a life well lived. It has nothing to do with what we get or what we may be given. The measure of a good life is about demonstrating love in all we do. It’s about how we have served those around us and what we have given to those most in need.

the girl effect

After over 35 years of working along side the world’s poor and the hungry I know the truth of this statement. Educating girls and young women impacts their entire communities in significant and measurable ways.

Girl power is real. Support the education and empowerment of girls and you will be helping change the world.

active compassion

True success is far more than more power, prestige and money. True success must include significance. And to be significant we must live lives of active compassion. We must love others even as Christ has first loved us.

Success, at least to me, is like gun control. Success simply means you hit your target. You accomplish what you’re aiming to do.

And like gun control, success says nothing about aiming at the correct target. What is needed, desperately needed, according to the Dalai Lama, is better target acquisition. The world needs folks who want to have lives of true significance. That means people who choose to aim at the right target.

The Dali Lama’s list is a damned good place to start.
