Being a Legacy

Being a legacy is beyond what we perceive or what society would dictate being a legacy is.

The idea or sentiment of wanting to leave a legacy comes from within, it is a desire of being selfless and wanting to leave something more than tangible or perceptible by touch in the physical world. Before going into what exactly, it is to leave a legacy...lets talk about different view points of leaving a legacy in various peoples lives.


Now selflessness means to have more concern for others than for yourself. Do you think of others more than for yourself? Do you find the balance of the of being selfless and having self love? People who live to leave legacies there is an intent to change the world or the world that surrounds them.
There is an intent and/or determination to bring balance to the imbalance.


Determination is defined  as the process of establishing, controlling or deciding the outcome of a goal, desire, or whatever fits the mold of the your situation. Determination is based on your focus and actions to complete the goal you have. Whether its a dream that you have from impacting your community to opening your own corporation. Being determined to be successful based on your definition of what success is not anyone else.

Your determination will naturally be observed by others and with that your actions are displayed. When you are determined, it influences others to do the same and no one forgets who inspired them to become focus and determined.

Leading into...


When you are secure and know your purpose it becomes easy to desire to impact others, you are willing to build others. Mentors are not based on how much experience they have, it is based on what they had experienced. Mentors always have a story to tell that gives guidance and understanding of a related circumstance. Mentors are willing to take on people in their lives because there is a characteristic of a leader within them. Mentors are leaders even when for some  it is hard to accept the idea of being a leader. Leadership & mentorship walks hand in hand;

Leaders create leaders. Mentors create mentors. Teachers create teachers.

Meaning you are a legacy...

Quite amazing isn't it?

You are simply a legacy based on your selflessness, determination, actions, mentorship, and leadership.

The single desire to impact others by all that you are, is how you leave a legacy after you complete this life. That sense of purpose to change your environment, impact people in a positive way, and achieve your personal goal that is attached to your dreams.



Take the time to meditate on all that you are and all you want to become in this life. You will find it.
