Leave a Legacy – Don’t let your gift go to the grave

Every person has within themselves the seeds of purpose, but it lies dormant until it is activated. Much like the Acorn from the mighty Oak tree that lies dormant until it is placed in the right environment. Contained within the Acorn are the ingredients and DNA for greatness but it must be planted, watered and receive the sunshine it needs in order to be activated.

I recently visited a grave yard and came upon the grave stone of an unfortunate girl named Mary Ann. Unfortunately Mary Ann died at the young age of four and never had the opportunity to live a rich full meaningful life. No one really knows what Mary would have achieved if she had not died prematurely. It is remarkable when you think about the potential of one life has if lived fully. What a tragedy it must have been for the family to have never had the opportunity to see their little girl grow up.

As I stood next to Mary Ann’s grave, I couldn’t help but think about the many hundreds of other lives represented there in the same grave yard. These were people who lived a full life yet many for one reason or another was not able to live their dream, they never found their voice. Their lives weren’t cut short, they had an entire life time filled with opportunities yet for the most part found excuses.

Leave a Legacy

leave a legacyFinding your voice really is finding your authority, taking ownership of your life and direction. The truth of the matter we succumb way to often to voices of others around us. We all to often end up spending our entire lives reacting to circumstances, accommodating people and conditions instead of being a proactive voice in the world and becoming the instrument of change. This is what it takes to leave a legacy.

Being a voice in the world happens when you connect with your unique purpose and help move the planet forward. What this means for you is that you have been given the capacity to be a proactive cause, that brings life to your world through your individual uniqueness. I am discovering that rather than reacting to circumstances, I can become one. I can put myself out there in such a way that people react or respond to me.

What this means is that I can become proactive rather than reactive and by doing so live a more rich fulfilling life.  The sad truth is that statistics tell us that only 3% of our world live a life of fulfillment. I don’t want you to leave your legacy, your potential buried in the ground. Discover the formula for living a rich full life by discovering your voice, developing your vice and releasing it to the world around you.

Remember, Find your voice, Live your Passion, Touch your World!
