What Is Your Personal Legacy?
Have you ever thought about what your personal legacy will be? How about when you and your significant other are in your 90s, what will you look back on and say about what you contributed in your lifetime? Have you ever thought about what people will say about you in your eulogy? These are usually questions which we don’t think about, at least I didn’t until I joined my home based business.
In the beginning of my personal development plan, I remember reading books like Brian Tracy’s “Maximum Achievement“, which put me through exercises I had never even thought about before. Questions like the ones I just mentioned and others like “if you had 6 months to live, what would you do tomorrow?”. If your answer was not the same as what you currently do, then he said you were doing the wrong thing, because how do you know you don’t have just 6 months? Wow! 🙄
What Is My Mission In Life?
When I was young, I thought I was going to live forever and that time moved so slow, however, as the years go by, I started to realize the clock is ticking everyday. I started to ask myself, “why am I here? what is my mission while I’m here on this planet?” Something inside of me thought, I know there’s a reason. It can’t be that my life is about going to a job everyday and just barely getting by! Oh, and the yearning to spend more time with my son and my family! And when will there ever be enough time and money to really enjoy life! 😥 If you feel like this, then you’re getting close to the point where “you’ve had it, and you’re not going to take it any more”. That’s when I decided to find a home business, and I was fortunate to find one very quickly.
I soon realized that I had found my mission in life and I was willing to learn new skills because I was truly helping other people. I felt good about what I was doing everyday and the people I was helping were really feeling great. The funny thing was, I was working very hard because I was still working at my job, 14 hrs/day, but during those early mornings working PT on my home business, I was happier and more excited than I had ever been! That’s how you know you’re doing the right thing. 🙂 Four months later, I turned in my resignation and I left the corporate world in 1995! Once I left my job, I could answer the question… if I had 6 months left to live, I would do what I am currently doing tomorrow! Everyday, I do what I love and I love what I do, so I would not change it! I also realized that if I put my heart and soul into my home business and followed very successful people, I could leave a legacy that would last long after my physical body did. I looked around and I found many successful people who already had left a legacy with a home based business. I decided I would do the same by following everything they did!
I found this beautiful video called “The Dash” by a company named Simple Truths. It really makes you thing about your life and what you are doing everyday to make each day count. Let’s enjoy it together…
I hope you will start to live each day as if it were your last, because one day it will be, and then you won’t have any regrets. We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
