I truly believe we need more individuals to come together for the greater good of humanity – we need to step out and transcend our self-imposed boundaries – we need to move more synergistically in the direction of progress – while we each, as individuals, leaves a legacy built on our individual passions and talents… the future of our country depends on it.
The dictionary definition of legacy is something that is handed down from the past or is also defined as a gift of property or money through a will. Now, I am sure we are not just interested in just talking about property or money so I see the value in clarifying a deeper meaning of legacy for all of us while sharing with you my passions on what legacy means to me.
Part of my personal mission is to “Leave a Legacy”. I see our legacy and what we are passionate about as one in the same realm – I see it as our God given purpose to align our gifts, talents, strengths, passions, aspirations and our creation power to render the best service to humanity. I believe this concept resonates with our life’s purpose and it transcends all cultures. There is an inner human need to feel unique and for each of us to know that we are here by no accident, that each of us has a purpose. I know this to be true – you are no accident, you are here for a very special purpose.
In some way, through what I do, I inspire those I come in contact with to follow their unique passions and to be authentic; those two attributes are key ingredients to finding out the legacy you want to leave behind. In my coaching sessions we go through a process of self-discovery where we explore values, identity, passions, interest and the needs of my clients to. I am confident that through a process like this one, we can shed light on which path to take in life. Ultimately, I believe legacy is the contribution we leave to humanity; it is what we leave behind because of our existence – it’s what we do, who we become & how who we are influences those around us.
As human beings, the greatest value we can bring to our country, the greatest legacy we can leave behind to society begins by being our authentic selves and by utilizing our unique talents, dreams and passions to bring value to others. It is my belief that the greater our self-awareness, the higher the chances we have in finding our passions and our life calling. Once we grab hold of our purpose… we have the potential to create a meaningful legacy.
Now, your contribution may not be money, it may be in the form of being the best parent possible, the lives you touched by being a good friend – it might be in the service you rendered that few took notice of… whatever it may be, I truly believe that we must pursue it and carry it out with everything we are!
You can begin moving in the direction of building your legacy by asking yourself: Where am I going with my life? Consciously open yourself to the possibility of the changes that you will make ahead to align more of what is important to you with where you are going with your life. I would like to challenge everyone to look and constantly analyze the direction your life is going in. If we are not obtaining the results we are after as individuals or as a society then maybe it’s not about trying to change our doing as much as our being – which starts with our thinking. So ask yourself: Who am I becoming? A great follow up question is; who do I want to become? Then see the gap between the two and create a plan to start making those changes.
You can leave a meaningful legacy; your life can be fulfilling. It’s time to take an inventory of yourself…
