How do we want to be remembered?
Every day presents a precious gift to discover our greatest potential while being a positive difference maker in the life of another person. Just envision a world where we all implemented the Golden Rule in our living of treating others the way we want to be treated. We do not need to create the next Apple, Nike, Twitter, Google, Tesla or Amazon to leave a meaningful legacy. It is about our daily living and how people feel after leaving our presence.
When we put our notions of fortune, fame, happiness, and success aside and get to the core of humanity, it all seems like this constant search and discovery to feel accepted, appreciated, valued and loved. Realize deeply the things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone. But the things you do for others remains your legacy.
May the following twenty growth mindsets on leaving a legacy enable you to navigate closer to unlocking and nurturing your purpose that stretches beyond yourself.
1. Always aspire to provide real value and to create work that matters.
2. Dare to be great. Dare to dream the impossible dream.
3. Every day execute on a task that brings you closer to your dream.
4. Challenge the status quo.
5. Look beyond what is, into what can be and further into what should be.
