maximizing human potential through Life's Most Powerful Question.

W.I.N. Wednesday: Lessons From Life' s Most Powerful Question - The Goal is Not to Live Forever

"The goal isn't to live forever. The goal is to create something that will."

Chuck Palahniuk

The first word that came to mind when I read this quote is Legacy. I strongly believe that a Legacy is something that you create every day that you live, rather than simply something you leave behind when we die. 

In your life you lead many roles (mother/father, son/daughter, sister/brother, husband/wife, friend, mentor, leader, teacher) and in each of those roles you create a legacy through the way that you live your life and the way you treat people in every aspect of your life.

In your life do you build people up, or do you tear people down? Do you inspire people to greatness, or convince them to settle? Do you make people feel important and valued? Do you leave your team, your workplace, your community and the world a better place because you were here? Do you seek opportunities to pay it forward by being a mentor? 

Robert Louis Stevenson challenges us to judge each day not by the harvest that we reap (what's in it for me), but by the seeds that we plant (what are we doing for others). 

What's Important Now? - Commit to always be better tomorrow than you are today. Seek to pay it forward. If you develop yourself and inspire and develop others you will create something that will live forever.  

Take care.
