“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
What stands out about these nine individuals, who have achieved remarkable things, are the qualities that legends embody... such as a hunger to learn, the value they place on relationships, their willingness to make a difference, their willingness to make mistakes and their passion for adding value. These are qualities that we can't find in books but through experience and mistakes. It highlights the importance of mentorship and surrounding ourselves with inspiring people while continually investing in our character and competence.
