On the Matter of Legacy
If you do not find and follow your purpose, you will deny many a path to trail.
You must understand that there are those coming behind you. And are going to rise and thrive on your light. Take your candle and light up your world
Do you think you are living for your self?
You must live your life generationally.
I know this right from growing up
A song we use to sing in the choir back then:
🎼🎤 Oh may all who come behind me fine me faithful
May the fire of my devotion (and purpose) light their way
And may the foot prints that we leave lead them to believe
And the life we live inspire them to obey (and find purpose)
Oh may all who come behind me find me faithful
It is said that the right and best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is Now!
You must seek to add value to your society. Not necessarily trying to change the world, just add a little value, then a little, and then a little....
You are not responsible for the conditions which you were given birth to, but you are very much responsible for your tomorrow. No one owes you anything but you owe the coming generations everything
Legacy is not what you think about when you are 80. You are building a LAGACY by your daily decisions
Always remind yourself that you are important, you matter , and you have something to share with the rest of the world!
Don't die with your gifts
...Every great leader I've ever had the privilege to work with- whether they are a politician, an athlete, a musician, or a business savant- got there using one force above all other. And that's HUNGER!
~ Tony Robbins
This is what differentiates between the successful from the unsuccessful.
How hungry are you?
How badly do you want success?
If you can maintain a burning hunger, it will drive you to achieve more than you can ever imagine. Hunger crushes fear of death
Hunger helps you birth those strategies you need to succeed. It's will drive you to flash out your answers to the most pressing problems of your life and that of others.
In early 1900s, the Wright brothers were not only the team on them flight race.
There was another team more equipped, better advantaged and were sponsored to pit mankind in the air.
The Wright brothers lad education and sponsorship. They were like we'll call today, road side mechanics. Infact the were bicycle repairers
But these Brothers never lacked hunger! Their hunger soon attracted the right mix of people who shared in the same passion. Many months later, the team of mechanics and bicycle repairers put mankind in air.
Populate you circle with the right kind of people.
When you add hunger to opportunities things happen!

Discovery isn't enough! The optimal utilisation and release of every potential within discoveries should always be our aim.
This is really inspiring... It's a beautiful write up... As far as I'm concerned anything that had the sons of bishop Wright in it is beautiful...
