, "As you wander in life let this be your goal,
Keep your eye on the donut and not on the hole."
As we journey in life, at some point, we become aware of the influence people have had on our lives.
Some have had a negative influence, they are the ones who focus on the "hole."
Other's have had a positive, encouraging influence on our lives; who "keep their eye on the donut" instead of the "hole." They enjoy life, see possibilities all around to make a difference in other people's lives and intentionally act upon these opportunities.
People are like elevators, they either lift us up to another "floor" or they take us down to the basement of life.
As we become aware of the influence we have with others from day to day we decide to either lift up
or tear down, encourage or discourage the people we come in contact with from day to day.
As we lift up others we begin the Journey to Significance.
