Will your legacy even live on 100 years after you go? Hmm, a thought-provoking question.
In the movie Shall We Dance, Susan Sarandon is asked why people marry, she responds with, “We marry so we have a witness to our life.” It got me thinking about why we do what we do.
I think all of us want to believe and know that ultimately our being here makes a difference. The question is, what are you doing to make that difference substantial?
Five years ago the top five causes of death were:
- Pneumonia & influenza
- Heart Disease
Of that list, the top three have been eliminated, for the most part, as leading killers. Can you even imagine today some dying of diarrhea?
My point is that significant change can happen and you can be instrumental in changing work conditions, family relationships, and so much more. If you just change how you handle anger, you will automatically start changing how your kids handle anger because they use you as their template.
So make this your year to make a mark. Start small but stay consistent. Those of you reading your Outcome Thinking books are jumps ahead with your journals. Go back through them all and highlight what changes you have made and what the impact has been. For those of you not doing that, we welcome you to join us by clicking on the web site store to get your hands on the webinars right now.
There is no better time to define your future than right now. So grab hold with both hands, make the changes you desire so that all who are a witness to your life can say you lived a life of significance.
