WHAT WILL MATTER
Transcript of WHAT WILL MATTER
no minutes, hours or days. All things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else. It will not matter what you owned, or what you were owed. So too, your hopes, plans, ambitions and
to-do lists, will expire. It won't matter where you came from
or what side of the tracks
you lived on at the end. The wins and losses
that once seemed so important will fade away. Your wealth, fame and temporal power
will shrivel to irrelevance. WHAT WILL MATTER It won't matter whether you were handome or brilliant. Even your gender and skin colour will be irrelvant Ready or not, someday
it will all come
to an end. So what will matter? How will the value of your
days be measured? What will matter is not
what you bought but what you built, not what you got, but what you gave. What will matter is not your success
but your significance. What will matter is not what you learned
but what you taught. What will matter is every act of
integrity, compassion, courage,
or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example. What will matter is not
your competence but
your character. What will matter is not how many
people you knew but how many will feel a lasting loss
when you are gone. What will matter is not your memories but the memories of those who loved you. What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what. Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident. It's not a matter of circumstance, but of choice. Choose to live a life that matters. Your grudges, resentments,
frustrations and jealousies
will finally disappear.
