WAy to go . Leaving a Legacy
WA is the way to go. I have no doubt about it.
I have been here 6 months already and made great progress initially and then, by the law of diminishing returns, my progress has levelled off. I need to be more committed and to have more DRIVE to succeed.
To have more DRIVE, I need to be sure about my purpose. What is my purpose?
I need to keep the end in mind. What am I aiming for?
Am I moving AWAY from or moving TOWARDS something? What is driving me?
I think that is the best word I can use to describe what I am doing?
So what do I mean by legacy?
While it would be nice to leave my children a financial legacy, what I am working on is far more important than this. I am aiming to make my children proud and to show them how to follow their dreams. This is my purpose. This is what is driving me. If I don't follow my dreams and achieve my goals, how can I expect my children to do that?
So how can I ensure that I don't lose sight of that legacy?
Visionboard, Moodboard, Affirmations ... all of these are important.
The most important thing is watching my children make decisions about their lives. If I don't see them following their dreams, I need to be the example. I am passionate about making their lives meaningful by making my life meaningful.
I am following my dreams - of writing and publishing my own books; of creating sustainable businesses which help other people to fulfil their dreams; of living a life which is authentic and full of the things which mean a great deal to me.
WA is helping me to achieve this (but I have got stuck on Course 3 and Lesson 8). Now I need to see what I would say to my children to achieve this if they were stuck.
Leaving a legacy for my children starts with being authentic to my own purpose.
Thank you for listening.
