I have always taken pride in that I thought I had an open mind and that my life wasn't centered around myself. Don't get me wrong, I am very proud of who I am and what I have become, but I am not the center of the universe. The world doesn't, and shouldn't revolve around me!
I used to have goals of owning a large commercial building and seeing my name on it, but I never wrote down that goal or set in place a plan to achieve it, so it was really just a pipe dream.
However, I just learned that my wife's cousin has his name displayed prominently at Boise State University at the Richard Rapp Resource Room.
This got me thinking about that previous goal of mine that I currently have failed to achieve. I don't have resources to buy a large commercial building so that goal may go forever unmet by me. I wonder what have I done or plan to do for my community to have someone think they should memorialize my contributions. So far, nothing comes to mind. I need to up my game!
Then I realized I do have a monument to my name!
However, I am the one that designed and paid for this monument. Therefore, I must be a narcissist. But hey, I am learning. I planned ahead and wrote down a plan for my future which I guarantee I will ultimately achieve!
