What Legacy Will You Leave?

I wonder how many of us really consider what legacy we will leave when we depart from this world. In our day-to-day lives it seems that many of us get so busy that we don’t take time to consider the impact we have on the people in our lives, or the impact we make on our planet and in the lives of the animals that we share our beautiful planet with. The video below is one that I watch a few times per year, to remind myself to stay focused, and make sure that I doing something every day to make a difference in the lives of others. It was created by a dear friend and colleague, co-founder of Ten Million Clicks for Peace. Rick Beneteau. He is one of the kindest, most generous people I know and I can say for certain that he lives by the words in this video.

I challenge you to make a commitment to do something good for someone each and every day. Maybe just by saying a kind word, or smiling at a stranger. No matter how small the gift you give, remember you are making a difference in someone else’s life, and that gift may ripple out to 1000’s of people because of your kindness.

I encourage you to share a story of how you helped someone and what difference it made in their lives, not for the purpose of bragging but instead for the purpose of sharing the delight that helping others can bring. Just think your story may be the catalyst for someone else to do an act of kindness that changes the world. 🙂
