08/17/2019 “The real legacy of a man does not lie in wealth left behind, but in knowledge passed down.” Some of my friends planned an (early) surprise birthday weekend for me. We had a nice dinner, saw a broadway show, and then they took all of my money in poker.
Looking at that table full of people makes me really proud.
I feel as if I’ve lived several lifetimes in a very short, condensed period of time. I often find that I have the experiences of someone more than twice my age. *que receding hairline/balding jokes from Bj Worrell*
Of all the experiences and accomplishments I’ve earned, It’s that table that I’m most proud of. I’ve been blessed to mentor everyone at that table.
I’ve taught so many people. Not everyone could make it, but to be able to see first hand the success and attitudes of these kids change, is a real honor.
Being a mentor isn’t easy. Everyone I know advises against it. Sometimes people steal from you. Sometimes it’s a thankless job.
To date, I’ve lost over $750,000 to people that I’ve taught, but did not have the same amount of integrity as I did.
When I get to add more memories into the book like the ones at this table, it makes dealing with the few bad ones worth it.
Every single person at this table is going to one day go on to teach their own students.
That’s what legacy means to me.
