Positive Impact on Others
There are people who make everyone around them better. It could be because they have high standards, are givers who inspire generosity, or are teachers of their peers. However they do it, they push others upwards; their very presence makes everyone else step up their game.
You know it when you see it - can-do, optimistic. That doesn’t mean everyone doesn’t have down moments - it just means on balance, you walk away from interactions with these people energized and charged up to do more with your life.
We’re always making ourselves better. Stasis is the enemy… if you’re not going forwards, you’re going backwards. Everything is a work-in-progress in perpetuity - yourself included.
