It’s not what you know, but who you know. And that’s always been true. But probably not like most people in the world think about it. But if you take the sum total of what most people in the world believe and put it in a basket, you’d still have lots of room left for eggs. Or bread. Or even flowers and berries. Whatever you prefer.
And let’s say you put that sum total in a hand basket.
Well, then you could put the whole world in. And you know where that world would be headed in that hand basket? I’m sure you can guess.
A few years ago I laid it out in 5 bullet points. Because it was important to know then. And it’s just as important to know now. Matter of fact, it will always be important to know. That it’s not what you know, or what you can do, that’s gonna ultimately keep you from hopelessness.
It’s always been, always is, and always will be Who you know.
You and I are not the sum total of our dollars, beauty, or “stuff”. And you and I are not the sum total of the monikers we wear through this life. You and I aren’t even the sum total of the varied opinions about us. Those don’t make us, and they shouldn’t break us.
And here are those bullet points again.
- Work to produce…not for the money.
- Play to relax…not to escape.
- Laugh to enjoy…not to cover up.
- Love to give…not to acquire.
- And live to be thankful…not to compare.
You are the sum total of where you position yourself for eternity.
