How do you want to be remembered, whether by someone you interact with today or by those who will carry on after you’re gone?
Think about the life you want to lead. Think about the person you want to be. Who around you, whether a personal connection or public figure, has those characteristics? What do they do? How do they live? What are their habits, actions, and sacrifices? Are you prepared to live the way you need to in order to have the life you want?
How important will your health be in pursing that life? What kind of work capacity will you need to best achieve your life’s capacity?
There is so much in life you can’t control. But how you live your life is totally up to you. I’m working to be remembered as a great man who did it all, lived life to the fullest, and had a positive impact on the people who knew me and on the world at large. What about you? How are you going to be remembered?
