I woke up this beautiful morning with a thought on my mind about leaving a lasting legacy. Making a difference in the lives of people you come in contact with and leaving people better than you met them.
What are your thoughts about this subject? What are you living for? Whose lives are you affecting? What impact are you making in the world? What is keeping you awake every night? What do you rise up early in the morning to pursue? Some people climb so fast in life to get to the top of the ladder, only to realize that the ladder was leaning on a wrong wall. They’ve spent their energy, youth, time and resources, fight and hustle in the work place or business and at the end, they ask “is this all that is about?”It’s like chasing the wind.
Think about what you consider worthwhile in your life-where you place your time, energy, and money. Will you one day look back and decide that these, too, were “chasing the wind”? We must learn to keep the right perspective and prioritize… Don’t waste your life chasing things that do not have eternal value. Some years back, you weren’t here, someday you will be gone. What will you be remembered for?
In one way or another, we all are leaders in different capacities – manager, parent, singer, athlete, business man or woman, entrepreneur, coach, teacher or whatever you do, as long as you interact with people.
How do I make an impact or leave a lasting positive imprint on people’s lives?
