Something changes when we wake up every morning and look at our lives through the lens of contribution.
As a contributor, my life matters because it affects thousands, even millions, of other lives.
As a contributor, success and failure fade into the background. Neither one holds much weight because I am still needed regardless of either outcome.
As a contributor, where I am today is a beautiful place. I am needed here. My contribution today counts even if I go elsewhere tomorrow.
As a contributor, I stand up and speak up because I am a necessary part of the puzzle. Without me, the puzzle is not complete.
The contributor lens is rarely looked through, but those who choose to look through it find that life is remarkably enjoyable.
