"I have had dreams and I have had nightmares but I have conquered my nightmares because of my dreams." Jonas Salk
This week I am sharing some of my favourite quotes from Robin Sharma's latest book 'The 5am Club'.
Today's quote taps into the importance of purpose in our lives to overcoming adversity.
As German philosopher Nietzsche said "He who has a why to live can withstand almost any how." But not all whys are created equal. There are different levels of purpose with different levels of value.
Many organisations have jumped on Simon Sinek's 'start with why' approach. This is great but insufficient for high performance if that purpose doesn't tap into serving something greater than the company.
The search for meaning is an intrinsic human quality according to the founder of positive psychology Martin Seligman.
Serving something greater gives us meaning.
Great leaders are meaning makers, turning this dream into reality at work.
