My National Geographic bookmark depicts a beautiful lion and the phrase: Make Your Mark. I love this bookmark because it’s a regular reminder that I need to make my mark on the world. Olympian Sarah Schleper roars before she starts down the ski hill. I love that. I love that Sarah puts it all out there and makes her mark by roaring like a lion and letting the world know that she’s ready to take on the snowy mountain. It’s important to first recognize what is your mark, then consistently make that mark. I was talking with a coaching client last night about preparing himself for a possible job transition. We identified that first he needs to know what are his core strengths are before he can make his mark is a meaningful and calculated way. I don’t imagine him “roaring” as he walks into the office this morning. But, he’s starting to make that mind shift of how he will make a meaningful mark at work. The more we all do good and better things in our homes, schools, jobs, etc., the better our collective community will be. That’s why it’s important to understand and discover how you want to make your mark and then go for it: roar! How are you making your mark in your everyday life?
