“Creating a Legacy? Now? Yes!”
Have you ever thought about the imprint you are leaving as you are living?
How are you making this world a better place? Perhaps by loving your children and teaching them how to love others. Perhaps helping your clients become more successful.
You see, the what, who, how of a legacy is about your conscious choices and your daily actions.
Do you feel you are so caught up with day-to-day living that you can’t see beyond the next day?
I want to challenge you! Are you willing?
Leaving a legacy doesn’t mean you have to wait until the end of your life! It’s all the steps throughout your life, it’s what you’ve done and do to teach, inspire and create to help this world.
Helping this world doesn’t mean either that you have to help thousands in order to leave a legacy. If you knew you significantly helped or changed for the good one other person, wouldn’t that make your life matter?
Creating a legacy is what you created that you leave behind, leave to continue on—without you.
As you reflect on your life at this very moment, what can you say of your legacy now? Write down all the ways you have impacted others– your family, friends, clients, and colleagues. Hmm, some of them always not so positive?
What do you think they would say about YOU? Do you think they would be the same as what you wrote? Because after all, it’s not what you think, it’s what others think and experience as a result of you.
Now think: What do you want your legacies to be for the next year, next 5 years, next 10 years?
Yes, be pro-active on creating your legacy! Create new legacies, and build stronger the ones you’ve started.
Next step: What do you want or need to do to fulfill that legacy?
To live a bigger, more fulfilled life, turn your view from what you want to have to, “How am I helping others? What do I want to be remembered by?”
Start by: Identifying the values that are important to you. How consistent are in upholding your values?
Throughout the next few weeks, ask yourself, “What do I want others to say of me?”
This question will guide your actions, goal achievement and the creation of positive legacies.
You can also focus on one group at a time, for example:
What do I want my family to say about me?
What do I want my children to say about me?
What do I want my clients to say about me?
What do I want my friends to say about me?
What do I want my readers to say about me?
Your life matters. But more importantly how you impact others matters more.
Now is the time to think about the living legacies you want to leave. Because you won’t be leaving A legacy. You’ll be leaving multiple legacies.
It’s up to you to create these legacies instead of living a life bouncing along like a ball in a pinball machine.
Creating a map for a legacy forces you to think about and generate meaning for your life.
Your time is precious. It’s time to actively create a fulfilling life that positively impacts those around you.
