WHAT DOES THE REAL WORLD LOOK LIKE FOR MOST CHILDREN?
Think of these staggering facts when you tuck your children into bed tonight. According to the United Nations, 150,000,000 children live on the street, four times that number on the brink of starvation, and an additional one billion are suffering in poverty.
ABSOLUTELY ALL NET PROCEEDS GENERATED BY PEARLS OF WISDOM WILL BE DONATED TO NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS THAT BENEFIT NEEDY KIDS.
Why, you may ask?
Because, ready or not, some day all things will change.
All the items you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will no longer be relevant.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.
So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?
What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built;
not what you got, but what you gave.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.
What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many
will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.
Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident.
It’s not a matter of circumstance but of choice.
Choose to live a life that matters.
