The definition of success changes as you grow in life. As a child, it meant pleasing your parents; in high school, it may have meant good grades or popularity; as a professional, success usually means a good salary and the respect of others. But what about the years after your initial goals have been pursued and met? What does success mean then? Leisure or legacy?
For more and more people, it's about making things better and about improving the world in a lasting, significant way—about changing people's lives and altering the course of history for the better. There's an environment to protect and communities to strengthen. There are minds to change and hearts to win. There are examples to set and legacies to leave—your legacy.
With Purpose is for the bold, for the dreamers who act. It's an urging on why you should commit to have a lasting impact on the world, and it's a manifesto on what you can do to maximize that impact, regardless of whether or not you think you have the resources to do it: you do. It will inspire you, show you how to identify your strengths, and make your next success a significant one.
