Creating Your Legacy – Thoughts of a Rotarian
How often are you asked what legacy would you like to leave?
I think about this often, but not in that way.
“I want to be known for someone who did something worthwhile, I do it because it is within me.“
“The thing about a legacy is it just doesn’t happen it grows over the years. It is about the way you live, how hard you work, and your dedication.”
“I believe a legacy is based on TIME, STRENGTH, PASSION and MISSION and doing what you do because that is where you HEART is.”
So now that I have asked you the question about Legacy what are your thoughts?
“ As I said earlier I think a legacy comes from what you do from your heart, something you are devoted to, and have passion for and want to make a difference in.
“It could be leaving your fortune, or reading a book to a child every week, both will make a huge difference in someone’s life.
If you want to be known as funny, make someone laugh every day, if you want to be known as giving, give every day.”
“Find your passion and share it. We all have the ability to leave a legacy behind!”
What will be yours?
