When we think about humanitarians, we often think of those who have dedicated their lives to serving the homeless or those impacted by terrorism or natural disasters. We might think of humanitarians as those who work to uplift others in underdeveloped countries or those who deal with illness and commit their lives to find a cure.
But humanitarianism takes on a multitude of forms. In whatever way, great or small, that you seek to improve the condition of humanity, you are performing an act of humanitarianism.
We should all ask ourselves daily: “What value can I bring to the world today? What am I doing to change the plight of those in need?”
Money is not always required to be of service to others. Your service may impact one person, 100 or 10,000.
Decide to say, “Today, I’m going to make a difference in someone’s life other than my own.” Do that consistently and watch how your life changes.
In this special issue, we celebrated successful men committed to serving others through their companies and on a personal level. The way each has chosen to give back and make a difference is unique to his skills and talents. These men are exceptional examples of what it means to be an excellent CEO, entrepreneur, or business owner who is socially responsible and dedicated to uplifting humanity.
