And when I think of the self made myth, when I think of how to articulate this, I can't think of a better way than this quote from Vernon Jordan. And here's what he has to say, he says. You are where you are today because you stand on somebody's shoulders, and whenever you and wherever you are heading, you cannot get there by yourself. If you stand on the shoulders of others, you have a reciprocal responsibility to live your life so that others may stand on your shoulders. It's the quid pro quo of life. We exist temporarily through what we take, but we live forever through what we give who powerful. So the question becomes, What are you giving to the world? What are you putting out there? How are you showing up? Because that is the key, my friend. You see social media, popular culture well, have you believe that it's solely about fulfilling your own desires? But if you look out throughout the course of history, the people that have a legacy that has withstood the test of time have given unselfishly to the world. And that, my friends, is why self made is nothing more than a myth.
