Im Your Ad Guy

Aspire After Greater

It really is a short life!  Before we know it we have graduated High School, College…started working 50 hour weeks…gotten married…taken a vacation here or there…had kids…watched them grow…and before you know it, you are on your death-bed wondering what you did with your life.

Don’t Get Me Wrong…

…some would consider the paragraph above “What You Did With Your Life”.  Did you notice how short the paragraph above was?  Seriously, minus some things in between sentences up there, that is how many of us live our lives.  If that is everything you ever wanted and you can truly say that on your death-bed you would be okay with that…then so be it!  But, I am not sure that is what life is all about.

Aspire After Greater

Have you ever thought about your Legacy?  What are you leaving behind that will make the next generation a better generation?  Is it your children that are your Legacy?  Are you teaching them to “Aspire After Greater”?  Is it a stamp on your professional life?  Are you empowering individuals on a daily basis?  Are you helping change society as a whole for the better?  

Not Interested?

So be it!  But I will tell you…I don’t want my life to be summed up in a short paragraph.  I think I will keep “Aspiring After Greater”.  I am not going to whisper to myself on my death-bed, “I wish I would have…”.

    I think about the legacy I’m leaving behind all the time. We all have such an ability!

      I think that a lot of people tend to wait until it’s too late to do what they REALLY want to do. We tend to naturally push off what we can do today to tomorrow. That is why I raise the question about one’s Legacy.
      I think about it all the time as well and I hope that the direction that I am heading in, helps leave a positive mark on society when it comes to my own contributions.
      As always thanks for reading and hope to chat again soon.
