Words of Wisdom from Tony Dungy

From Tony Dungy’s book “Quiet Strength”:

We might even become famous. But in the end, what will it mean?

What will people remember us for? Are other people’s lives better because of the way we lived? Did we make a difference? Did we use to the fullest the gifts and abilities God gave us? Did we give our best effort, and did we do it for the right reasons?

God’s definition of success is really one of significance –the significant difference our lives can make in the lives of others. This significance doesn’t show up in win-loss records, long resumes, or the trophies on our mantels. It’s found in the hearts and lives of those we’ve come across who are in some way better because of the way we lived.

I saw this quote around but it only made me want to get the book.

    He nailed it. Our significance is only how we treated others while we’ve been on this earth.
