“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” Nelson Mandela
I thought it appropriate to write on legacies today, as we prepare to say goodbye to our hero (Nelson Mandela) who fulfilled the dreams of so many South Africans in 1994. Mandela you made your mark on History, you have left an incredible legacy and you have made us SO proud to be called South Africans.
The example was set…and has been by millions of inspiring people who have left POWERFUL legacies in the world today.
In light of this….What legacy do you want to leave?
I have heard so many people say (when challenged on their beliefs and dreams) that when they are older they will re-look at the options again. Unfortunately we only get ONE life to live and you get no say in the end or start date…
You see legacies are not created in a day or an hour or at the “so-called” time in our lives when we feel “it would now make sense to stop buggering around and make something of my life”…They are created over a time period, of a life lived with intention!
You don’t need to be famous to leave a legacy..all it takes is a life spent, interacting with and impacting on others!
YOU get to leave a legacy; your mark on society, your mark on people’s lives, your mark on the world.
What message is your life giving off today???
