What’s Your Legacy
Everyday you are given on this planet is a blessing. It is an opportunity for you to try to be a little better than you were yesterday.
A few years ago I decided to start putting that statement into action. I made a choice to be the best version of myself daily. I looked at it like this: I will mirror what I would like for my future children to become. I mean if that doesn’t knock home for you I don’t know what will. Act and be who you want your future children to become. If you don’t want children then act and be who you would want to see.
Sometimes that means letting things and people go that aren’t good for you. The reward however is worth your life.
I recently sat through a seminar based off the foundations of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
One of the questions really sits heavily on your self worth and makes you reflect deeply on how you want to be viewed from those you love:
“Imagine 20 years from now and you are surrounded by the most important people in your life. What types of things would you like to hear them say about you?”
Just take a moment and actually write out your answer.
I love this exercise because it allows you to actually see what your deepest desire for change is. If your loved ones don’t view you this way then make it a goal to acquire these characteristics that you admire. It is possible.
This also got me thinking about how I want to be remembered after I’m gone.
I personally just want to inspire others to live a life of passion and purpose and actually emit the light they wish to see in others.
Anything is possible though if you truly believe in yourself.
What will your legacy be?
Love & Light
