Leave A Legacy

 

What we do for ourselves dies with us.

What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.

Live Your Best Life; Leave Your Best Legacy

 

Strive to live your best life, and do all you can to leave your best legacy.  Live a life that matters: you only get one opportunity in this world, so make it count and make it matter.

 

 

Be Your Best, And You’ll Have No Regrets

Charles F. Stanley once suggested: “One of the most horrible things I can think of is coming to the end of life and looking back with regret, thinking, What difference have I made?

 

Don’t let such a thing happen to you. 

Do all the good you can do in this life, and do it all the very best you can do it.

Make your life count. Make your life matter.

And let there be no doubt about it.

~

Most people spend their whole lives

wondering if they’ve made a difference …

Make sure you never have that problem.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Live A Life That Matters …

And Let There Be No Doubt About It

 

Live a life that matters … and let there be no doubt about it.

Make the most of yourself, and make the most of your life.

Maximize all of your talents and all of your abilities.

Make the most of every one of your opportunities

to impact the lives of others in a positive way.

~

Live a life that matters … and let there be no doubt about it.

Believe in something.  Stand for something.  Live for something.

Make a difference.  Make an impact.  Make your mark.

Live your life and leave your legacy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some Important Questions To Consider

 

 

 

 

~  What will you do with your life?

~  How will you be remembered?

~  What will your legacy be?

~  What will your life’s message be?

 

 

        All these questions may be posed to you; however, none of them can be answered for you.  The way you live your life and the legacy that you leave behind you in this world, are completely up to you to decide. Only you can determine the way you live your life and the legacy you leave behind.

        Your life is what you make it. The power to live your best life and leave your best legacy is entirely in your hands. What will you do with that amazing power?  The opportunity to live honorably and to leave a noble legacy is entirely up to you. What will you do with that wonderful opportunity?

~

Think carefully and choose wisely.

Then go out and live well and live right.

~

Live well, and you will be remembered well. 

Live the right kind of life, and you will leave the right kind of legacy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leave This World Unmistakably Better

 

Make the most of yourself.

Make the most of your time on this Earth.

Make the most of your influence.

Make the most of your impact on this world.

~

Make your life count.   Make your life matter. 

Make your mark be far beyond measure …

Leave this world unmistakably better. 

 

 

Your Legacy’s Final Place

 

1.  Where Your Legacy Won’t Be Found

Your legacy won’t be found in your bank account. Those funds will

be transferred into someone else’s name and bank account,

or worse yet, be given to the IRS or the State.

 

Your legacy won’t be found in your closet.  Those clothes and accessories will be given away, or worse yet, thrown away.

 

Your legacy won’t be found in your garage.  That car of yours will be given, or worse yet, sold in the newspaper to the very first bidder.

 

Your legacy won’t be found in your casket. That body of yours will soon fade away; those good looks and big muscles will soon wither away;

those organs and body parts of yours will soon be given away,

or worse yet, be left to rot in some obscure box.

2.  Where Your Legacy Will Be Found

 

Your legacy will be found in the hearts of others: in the lives of those you leave behind. If you have invested in other people, if you have loved and served others, if you have devoted yourself to improving the conditions of the world around you, and if you have dedicated your life to enhancing the lives of those who surround you… then rest assured that your legacy will be found in the most wonderful of places, and in the greatest number of faces.

~

If you live your life with honor, and if you live your life for others,

then do not worry about where your legacy will end up.

Rest assured, no one will have any trouble finding it.

The Value of Your Life

 

The Value of Your Life Is Measured By Actions, Not Possessions

 

 

The value of your life is measured by your actions, not by your possessions.  The type of car you drive, the kind of clothes you wear, and the amount of money you make have nothing to do with what kind of a human being you are.  Having a flashy car, wearing expensive clothes, and carrying a large stack of dollars does not make you any more or less important than anyone else; nor does it make you any more or less of a man than anyone else.  Ultimately, you will be judged by your actions and your contributions, not by your possessions.

 

 

The Value of Your Life Is Measured By What You Do For Others,

& Not Yourself

 

 

The value of your life is measured by what you do for others, not by what you do for yourself.  The personal accomplishments you achieve, the individual accolades you accumulate, and the various distinctions of personal glory and conquest have absolutely nothing to do with what kind of a human being you are. Living selfishly and looking out for only yourself does not make you any more or happier of a person than anyone else; nor does it make you any more important of a person than anyone else.  Ultimately, you will be judged by your contributions and by what you do for others, not by what you do for yourself.

“We make a living by what we get.

We make a life by what we give.”

Have Much Have You Loved And Served Others?

 

“At the close of life, the question will not be …

 

     How much have you gotten,

But how much have you given;

     Not how much have you won,

But how much have you done;

     Not how much have you saved,

But how much have you sacrificed;

     Not how much have you been honored,

             But how much have you loved and served others.”

 

       ~ Nathan C. Schaeff

 

 

 

In The End, Each Of Us Will Be Judged… 

“In the end, each of us will be judged…

         By our standard of life, not by our standard of living;

         By our measure of giving, not by our measure of wealth;

         By our simple goodness, not by our seeming greatness.”

Invest In Your Legacy By Investing In Others

 

 

 

“Life is not about us, but about others and something greater than us.”

 

~  Tony Dungy

 

 

 

“True glory consists in so living as to make the world happier

and better for our living in it.”

 

~  Gaius Plinius Secundus

 

 

 

“The most satisfying thing in life is to have been able to give

a large part of one's self to others.”

 

~  Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make Your Life Count ~ Make Your Life Matter

 

Live a life that matters.

Your task in this world is to make your life as meaningful as you can,

To make it as significant as you can,

To have as big of an impact as you can,

And to make as big of a difference as you can.

In short, your task is to make your life matter as much as you possibly can.

 

 

“This is our purpose: to make as meaningful as possible this life

that has been bestowed upon us, to live in such a way that we may be proud of ourselves, to act in such a way that some part of us lives on.”

~ Oswald Spengler
