The strength of your legacy

Thursday February 17, 2011 #293

 “I don’t want to become immortal through my work. I want to become immortal through not dying.”

~Woody Allen

Unfortunately it is not likely that our immortality will be defined by never dying, but rather by the strength of our legacy.  If we want our immortality to be defined by the strength of our legacy we must live a life that can produce such a legacy.

Imagine it is 50 years after you pass from this life and your legacy is so strong that people are quoting you or aspiring to your accomplishments.  What are those accomplishments?  What is that legacy?  Does it stem from your philanthropy, your community service, your parenting or grandparenting skills, the business you created, or something else?

Be intentional with your actions and activities today, to ensure the legacy you desire tomorrow.
