Success or Significance?

posted in: Blog | 0

I recently read an article by John Maxwell in Success magazine’s Oct 2010 edition where he talked about the difference between success and significance. Maxwell writes “Success asks, ‘how can I add value to myself?’ Significance asks, ‘how can add value to others?'” This truth is at the very heart of Inverted Arts. We exist to add value to those the world does not value. As we pour ourselves into young people trapped by poverty, we hope to significantly make a difference in this world. Each of us was made for this kind of significance and the joy that comes from the success of others. Once we taste this kind of significance, “nothing else will satisfy.”
