How to Leave a Legacy Behind
We all want to change the world. We all want to be remembered long after we are gone, leaving a legacy behind. Many of us also have a strong desire to leave this world a better place than when we entered it.
Steve Jobs said it best when he said “We’re here to put a dent in the universe.”
I came across that quote recently, and it touched my heart. Ironically, at church this week they were talking about Steve Jobs’ book and this incredible picture on the inside and back cover. It had that same quote with a picture of Steve sitting in a chair with his feet up on the table, his hands behind his head, as he looked at an Apple computer. And yes, he most certainly left a dent in our world. But that wasn’t the great part. On the computer was a picture of his wife and son.
What an incredibly powerful picture.
When all is said and done, it’s not about how much money you have, what your job title is, what you did or didn’t have growing up, or how big your thighs are. It’s about the relationships you have.
So, why am I writing about relationships on my fitness blog? Because, in pursuit of trying to leave our mark behind, sometimes we lose sight of the really important things in life. And if you’ve ever been faced with a near death situation, endured the loss of a loved one, or had anything traumatic happen in your life you know it’s all about the little things when you’re faced with those trying times.
And the people in your life.
The journey to health is so much more than a number on a scale or what size clothing you wear. It’s about being healthy physically, having a healthy state of mind, and having great relationships.
If you want to leave a true legacy behind, focus on helping others get everything they want in life, with what you’ve been blessed with.
