This Is Time To Build A Legacy: You Too Are A Legend

I am greatly inspired by Shannon L Alder's quote:
"Carve your name on hearts, not on tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you." 
This is time to build a legacy. To leave footprints that lay the foundation of the path that will be taken by many people.
To Leave Footprints That Lay The Foundation Of The path That Will Be Taken By Many People.
One by one, each of us can start impacting on the lives of the people around us. Touch a faltering friend, smile to a stranger, feed an orphan, perform an act of kindness to someone, revive a fading friendship and mend broken relationships. The change that we need is us. Feed an animal. Slowly but surely we can become like little children again. Somebody somewhere needs a soothing voice of assurance.

We may not agree on everything but we have a life to live. It is worthwhile to live it in peace love and harmony.

It doesn't matter what we do as long as we change something from the way it was before we touched it into something that's like we after we take our hands away. Ray Bradbury is quoted as saying, The difference between a man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching. The Lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all: the gardener will be there a lifetime."

In my endeavor to be a difference maker in the lives of people from far and wide I derive inspiration from people from all walks of life. Michael Jordan is still remembered as a individual who transformed basketball. His contributions spanned the globe and transcended far beyond the hardwood. As a businessman, his clothing brand remains iconic, and he remains active in a number of endeavors that enhance the lives of millions

Nearly 15 years after retiring from a legendary career Michael is still remembered as a legend and he left a living legacy.

Let us all as human beings not only be hardwired to think about today and tomorrow. Let us think of the future That focus is critical to remaining on course with humanity. However, we need to take some time to look at the longer-term vision for our survival. How will the future generations thrive long after we are gone. Are we building something for our children, our community, or even complete strangers to benefit from? The answers to those questions can be far more rewarding than the fruits of our labour today.

Are you building a legacy?
