I have served my country as a Soldier, as a Police Officer, and now as an entrepreneur; creating wealth, jobs and paying taxes.
If I see someone cleaning the streets, but doing so diligently, then they have my admiration and respect as much as any CEO of some huge company.
I don’t care about your job title, your pay grade or your qualifications.
Being a great mum, for example, has no qualifications but in my mind that is the ultimate in purpose.
It is in the striving for excellence, the mastering of your trade and the pride you take in your job, whatever that may be, that makes me respect you.
So, whatever role or job you do in life, if you do it with purpose, you do it with dignity.
