What’s Your Impact?

Who’s going to remember you when you’re gone?

What are people going to say about you when you’re gone?

Think about this question for a second.

When you die, what’s the majority of people going to say about you?

Is it going to be, “This person was great, but never truly hit their full potential.”

“They could’ve done more.”

Or is it going to be;

“This person was the best, always was looking to help others whenever they had the chance.”

“They donated to a variety of charities, helped in the community, was an overall great person to be around.”

“This person walked into any room and brought light and great positivity around everyone they were around.”

“He/She truly made an amazing impact on this world and their legacy will live on forever.”

I don’t mean to bring the topic of funerals and death to my blog, but I believe this is one of the most important, if not the most important, driving factors of life.

Your legacy.

What’s the topic going to be about when it’s your time to go?

Is it going to be positive and impactful or negative and something was missing?

A legacy is essentially whatever is kept after you’re gone.

The cars, houses, toys, or any of that stuff stays but there’s nothing more than what’s sitting there. What truly stays forever is impact.

The impact you made on people, serving time in communities, donations, and so much more.

How many lives have you been able to touch in your lifetime and truly made a difference in someone’s life?

The topic of legacy is what really drives me to become the best version of myself and keep finding ways to help others in anyway on a daily basis.

If you’re not able to do something huge right away, start with small daily tasks that can make someone’s day.

Here’s a few ideas:

  • Hold a door open for someone (Extremely easy)
  • Pay for a stranger’s coffee
  • Serve time in the community
  • Pick up trash around the area
  • Make meals for neighbors, or the less fortunate

Like I said, it doesn’t have to start out as something big.

Start with something small on a daily basis you can do to help someone.

Overtime, it begins to compound and then the things you do can become bigger and bring more people onto help.

So to end this post, here’s the question to really think about:

What’s your legacy going to be?

Thanks and Be Great,

Jared
