John Maxwell notes that success or improvements to team members do not come all at once.  But it is based on experience and personal growth that is more inch-by-inch in nature.

One of the most stunning buildings in the world stands in the middle of the New York City skyline. At 1,776 feet tall, it draws people from all over the world to remind them of the tireless spirit of the American people. It is One World Trade Center, and it grew from the ashes of the fallen Twin Towers.  But as amazing as One World Trade Center is, it’s still not the most important building in the world. For all of the spirit and hope that went into its construction, there are millions – billions – of buildings around the world that are more important.

The buildings I’m talking about are you and me. Everyday ordinary people.  My friend, you may not think about it this way, but your life is being built one day at a time. Your character is your foundation and your talents the raw materials. Your relationships provide the labor for building you up. And the choices you make on a daily basis determine how high you rise or how far you fall.

That’s why I’m so passionate about helping you live your life with purpose. I believe the world needs you to build a life that will stand the test of time, a life of significance and impact that will inspire and ignite generations to come. You have that potential within you if you’ll discipline yourself to unlock it.  There is no building more important than the life you are constructing little by little each and every day of your life. Not the Eiffel Tower, not One World Trade Center, not even the White House or the Colosseum in Rome. The world’s most important building is the life you and I choose to build. Let’s build wisely.
