Think Big: I Love these Words from the Book
From the book Think Big of Ben Carson, MD:
In writing Think Big, I want to discuss the concept of success—which the word for, unfortunately, has often been mistakenly used.
For some, success means making it to the top of the ladder, regardless of what one has to do to get there.
These same people measure success by what they accumulate and how many millions of dollars they are worth.
Frankly, it saddens me when I speak at schools and during the question-and-answer period students ask:
“What kind of house do you live in?”
“How many cars do you have?” “Do you have a swimming pool?”
As far as I am concerned, the money and what it buys are insignificant. Achievers are going to have those things anyway.
What is important—what I consider success—is that we make a contribution to our world.
I think of success as reaching beyond ourselves and helping other people in specific ways.

The children are sons and daughters of garbage workers in Payatas garbage site, Quezon city, Philippines.
The children are residing very near to the huge garbage site that’s not very conducive to an abode.
The children are scholars and supported by a Foundation that’s why they look clean and fresh. Honestly, all the children are very courteous when we did an outreach to them.
Everything you know can be taught to someone else. You’ve worked in an office, an experience which you and most of the people you know take for granted. But to some people, that experience is valuable. You could teach them workplace skills, appropriate dress, proper office and phone etiquette, or how to work a computer. Don’t discount anything you do as mundane or old hat—–to someone else, it’s gold.

The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.
I took this picture when I was in an ethnic or tribe community hundreds of kilometers away from the capital city of the Philippines.
When I went and stayed in this ethnic or indigenous community they don’t have traditional electricity supply for many months because the ethnic/indigenous or tribe community was devastated by a Supertyphoon a few days before December 25, Christmas.
Because of many factors their traditional electricity supply wasn’t put back for many months.
I just shared my very very very very very little own tangible and intangible help for some people in this very distant ethnic/indigenous or tribe community. It was very cool. Very Cool Eutress:-)
