“Imagine yourself at the end of your life. What sort of legacy will you leave? Describe the lasting effect you want to have on the world, after you’re gone.” -The Daily Post
Is it weird that I was thinking about this yesterday? Not in a suicidal kind of way. You see, I saw a picture of Nelson Mandela and couldn’t help but wonder how he managed to make such a lasting impact on the world. And in saying that, I don’t literally mean “what did he do?” but rather “why him?” It’s a strange thing when one person is able to make such memorable contributions in the grand scope of life. I wonder if I’ll ever do something so extraordinary that it’s remembered for generations on top of generations.
I’m not sure how I could leave such a legacy but this is a topic my mind ponders quite a bit. I almost feel like you have to let go of everything that is holding you back and let destiny play its role.
