“That is your legacy on this Earth when you leave this Earth: how many hearts you touched.” —Patti Davis
Here are five ways to leave a great legacy: 1. Support the People and Causes That are Important to You There isn't any more wonderful feeling in life than making the choice to sustain loyalty to a friend by lovingly supporting everything that is good and right about that person's life. 2. Reflect and Decide What is Most Important in Your Life When you review your life's journey, several ideas may come to mind: Did you grow and perhaps transform your life, make changes when you needed to, find your truth, inspire others, become a leader or influence others? Touching lives and exemplifying a truthful path is paramount to living a joyful and purposeful life. Your legacy will live on. 3. Share Your Blessings With Others Think of all the blessings you have in life and how I try to be mindful of sharing with others the richness of life. Is It your legacy to give back this abundance to others. Everyone has blessings to share, even if it a simple smile of acknowledgement. 4. Be a Mentor to Others A mentor by definition is a more experienced or more knowledgeable person with an area of expertise. Everyone has some significant truth to impart to others that will guide less experienced people in life. The mentoring/mentee relationship involves personal development and support. This process involves an exchange of knowledge complimented by psychological and/or social support that is crucial to sustaining new mindsets. Sometimes these relationships last a lifetime, even when the mentee has moved on to influence others. 5. Pursue Your Passions Because They Are Infectious Your passions are your legacy. Passion comes from an outpouring of the interests and ideas that make a difference in your life.
