I've just had the funniest conversation with a friend. We connected at a conference a couple of years ago and have built on the friendship again at a recent reconvening.
We both discovered that fame and fortune are foreign concepts. We started talking about someone we'd met recently that the world considers famous, and neither of us realized he was famous. We happened to be in the right spot at the right time to chat with him. (I had to go upstairs to my hotel room later and look him up online, lol.)
How do you feel about fame?
Is it something you want?
I'd like to have the opportunity to affect the world in a big way. Yes, that takes marketing and recognition. But fame seems hollow. I want to touch people's lives, not be "known."
What about fortune?
Do you want to be rich?
For me, money is a tool. It has a purpose. I hope that I'm able to use the tools God gives me to help people too. Yes, I want to pay my bills and grow my business. But I don't want to be a hoarder. I don't want to be like Scrooge so busy counting cold coins that I have no relationships.
How do you see fame and fortune?
