As most of you know I changed careers a few years ago and lately I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what I want my legacy to be.
Ask yourself this: If someone was new in town and was looking to join a club or go to your business what would they say about you and your club or business. Are you someone that is looked on as a leader in your town or just the person who is going through the motions?
Let’s face it… we’re only at a club for a certain period of time, right?! Are you happy to just go through the motions at your job and you’re career? Or do you want to create something, do something that will make a difference – in any way. It doesn’t matter if it’s personal or business related.
Ask yourself the following three questions:
What do my peers say about me when I’m not in the room?
How do I want my loved ones to think of me when I’m gone?
What mark do I want to leave in the lives of those that I meet?
Our Legacy – Our Vision – Our Focus-Our Dreams
Why have I been on this ‘legacy’ trip?
I’m a father of two amazing kids Lauren and Hannah. I also have a remarkable wife and I’m fortunate to have a couple of thriving businesses, as well as other opportunities that frequently pop up. I believe these things are all intertwined. They all happen and succeed because of each other.
It’s all these things and more that allows me to continue to fine-tune my own visions and dreams. The vision that I have for my family, my businesses, as an entrepreneur, boss – you name it – all ultimately leading up to my legacy.
I’ve still not totally figured out exactly what I want my legacy to be. But, I know it’s important to me. It’s something that I’m going to continue to work on, and I belive everyone should.
So, ask yourself this – what do you want your legacy to be. What are your goals, your dreams, and aspirations and are you moving in the direction to reach them?
