Bob wasn't my boss, but...

Received this in my email today from one of my mentors...
Only knew Bob for a short few years, but the statements below are the way he lived his life. I am grateful he was able to influence me. He never lectured. He led by example. His example to be a better person.
I miss him in my life. He was kind and generous. A man full of grace.

"When you help others, your life starts to have meaning and purpose. Real joy comes not from material possessions but from people. When we give our hearts in kindness and love, we get the riches of the universe, and the greatest of these is happiness.

When you’re generous with others, you feel abundant; your life feels fertile and rich with possibility. Remember, leadership is all about people inspiring people to believe in the impossible, to believe in themselves, and to become the very best version of themselves.

When your leadership is all about service to others, you automatically become someone of value, and as a result, the fruits of generosity rub off as an abundance mindset and support you to be more wealthy in all areas of your life."
