We all want to leave some sort of legacy behind for people to remember us by.
We work so hard to make sure people remember us for something big.
We spend most of our lives trying to impress the “big boss” to get that big promotion, so we can start making a difference.
. . .
And, all that is great and all; we should have dreams and goals. Hustling for what you want is great. But, what if, after all that hard work you never get that promotion? Then, what?
…If it were me, I’d probably be a little sad and depressed, and I wouldn’t have any energy left to create another legacy.
So, instead of waiting for that perfect moment, why not just start creating your legacy today?
. . .
Legacies don’t need to be spectacular shows, like those of history (like Martin Luther king Jr and other historical figures).
You can start making a difference right now, just by being YOU!
That’s the best legacy you can ever create!
I mean, think about it. That’s the one thing that all those people have in common; they are all remembered because they believed in something, and made it change. And, they didn’t stop until people believed in what they were doing and joined in.
They believed in themselves until others started to as well!
That’s the best way to create a legacy; believe in yourself so much that others have no choice but to start believing in you too.
If you do that, you will be remembered for being you and encouraging others to be themselves.
. . .
Don’t just work your whole life away for that one promotion to start your life legacy; start creating it now!
The definition of legacy says: “A gift of some sort, handed down from one generation to the next.”.
So, what gift do you want to leave for the world? (Not just your family, but the entire world?!?)
Remember, it doesn’t have to be a tangible thing; it can be love, happiness, inclusion, peace, etc.
But, whatever it is, you need to live by it everyday! And, people will eventually start to catch on!
That’s all you need to do to create a legacy, perseverance and self-confidence!
Thanks for reading!
Now, go create your legacy!
