I respect the spirit of women in women as they are generator of power & drives the world crazy .Imagine world’s best movie without a women star in it .Imagine mother nature without sprinkle of natural beauties all across to cherish ,Is that a possibility you could dream of .Imagine if you were to get raised without your mom being next to you ,imagine the epitome of love without women of dream next to you .Still do you need some more examples ?
“To me, a woman of substance is a woman whose life means something, who’s gone through adversity and even if she didn’t “win” comes out on the other end stronger, smarter; a woman who supports others and/or out-and-out leads — despite the cost. A woman who “uses” her life… she isn’t a spectator. She’s part of the solution, albeit only for her own small world of family and friends.”
Paraphrasing the quote in the question details in order to extract a ‘person of substance’ definition, one could say that:
“A person of substance is someone who strives to live a life that means something and who chooses to participate rather than be a spectator in life in order to be part of the solution as opposed to the problem.”
Breaking it down further to discover what makes a person of substance, we could ask the questions: What drives a person to make meaning, to actively participate and to seek solutions? and How can I imbibe this mindset in my own life?
Maybe by looking at each of these factors in turn, we may well discover how we could become a person of substance.
The 101 of making meaning is to find a cause outside of your self. While it is natural and accepted that we humans are self-absorbed, it’s a cause that benefits just one person among billions and would hardly resonate on the significance scale. See, significance demands a cause that benefits the ‘greater good’ as Guy Kawasaki explains in his book “The Art of the Start”.
