Saving a life
We are driven by human connections. We are inspired by service to other human beings. I have never cried from someone's story of taking a big risk and making millions of dollars. I get choked up from stories of those who are willing to sacrifice what is theirs to save what is ours. That's fulfillment. Doing something of value for someone else. Let us all live in service to others.
