On October 7th, I turned 50. Yes; half way to 100. In the “old days,” 50 years old would have been the maximum life expectancy in 1912 for a man, but I am here to say, I feel as if I am just getting started! My main goal now is to pay it forward and leave a lasting legacy for generations to remember; pass on the knowledge that has been passed onto me.
In fact, this December, I am releasing a new book which embodies the very idea of leaving a legacy; Abe’s Final Masterpiece; A Symphony of Lessons for Business and Life. In 1998, I was the lucky recipient of a blessing; a man whom I randomly met at a wedding and who turned out to be a fountain of life’s principles. I drove to New York City every Saturday to meet with him, for the next two years!
As we listened to opera together, talked about life, history and music, I absorbed his amazing insights into life. Now, his story has become my story and I am pleased to be able to share just a few of his life changing tenants with you here:
a) Turn Over Every Stone- A constant search for knowledge and natural curiosity is a must in the quest to be the best version of you. The people who never stop learning are the ones that are able to pay it forward in a productive way.
b) Falling Among The Stars- Dreaming big and ‘shooting for the moon’ is a nice picture to paint. In truth, if you are aspiring to your personal best you will be falling among the stars.
c) Micro Seeds = Macro Crops- People have the idea that enriching the lives of others has to be done in a ‘big’ way. Really, all the tiny seeds, all the tiny things you do for people every day, will add up to massive results over time.
Stay tuned for more of A Symphony of Lessons for Business and Life, and in the meantime; I wish you all the best in your quest to become who you were meant to be!
As always, I’d really enjoy hearing your feedback so please feel free to leave a comment on the page.
Wishing you a life full of unlimited health, happiness and prosperity.
