what's your sign?
Posted on 04 October 2011
In St. Louis, a woman ran up to our booth exclaiming that she almost got in a car wreck when she saw the logo and whipped a U-turn to come and see if we were who she thought we were. Turns out she had heard my father speak many times throughout her young career. In Austin, the local fire marshal came into the facility where we were holding our event to do a cursory check for emergency exits, looked at the logo, and exclaimed, “Hey, I know who that is! I read that book 25 years ago!”
So what’s the sign you’ll be recognized by long after you’re gone? Is it the cross, love, or heroism? Or is it the mighty dollar, a fabulous sports car, or a business empire? We are what we focus on, where we decide to dedicate our resources during our time on this Earth. Some of the signs we invest in will last throughout eternity and will be honored for generations to come. Pericles said, “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” So what’s your sign?
