What Will Be Your Legacy

by , under Everything Else


Have you ever given any thought about the term “legacy” and the meaning behind it?

Dictionary.com defines a legacy as anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor: the legacy of ancient Rome.

I thought about and pondered the definition for years and years.

I’ve made lots of mistakes in my lifetime such as treating people poorly, spent too much time partying, spent too much time being lazy, executed a few horrible business decisions, and the list goes on and on.

I’ve also had my share of successes and done some really good things in my opinion such as marrying my wife and raising and supporting 4 children, buying a home, helped those who required help, maintained a successful career, created a couple small businesses, enjoyed lifetime friendships and maybe a few other smaller accomplishments.

One of the goals that I’m most proud of, however, is building and creating this website.

If I have it my way… it will be my legacy to my family, friends and a significant chunk of the world .

It’s something I can give.

Hopefully it will be something to remember me by when I depart this precious and still largely untapped phenomenon we call life.

What will be your legacy?

What mark will you leave on the world?

Will you offer a contribution that will enrich the lives of your own children, grandchildren and a portion of our great human population?

It’s important to work on your legacy.

It will give you personal guidance, definition, direction and above all it will help you to inspire others.

We humans need and crave inspiration to keep driving forward on life’s highway.

Think about your own defining traits, the things your good at and figure out a way to combine them and start building your legacy if you haven’t already.

When you do it will give life purpose and clarity.

What will be your legacy?
