Improving Yourself

What Legacy Do You Want to Leave Behind?

During my teenage years, I had a teacher who posed a thought-provoking question to our class: “What kind of memory do you want to leave behind?” This question left us stumped at the time, but its impact stayed with me. The teacher shared that if we couldn’t answer this question by the time we reached fifty, we may have lived our lives in vain.

Reflecting on this question has become a regular practice for me. It serves as a powerful tool for self-improvement, pushing me to envision the person I aspire to be. Having someone of moral authority pose this question early in life can spark a lifelong journey of self-discovery and growth.

So, ask yourself: What legacy do you want to leave behind? Embracing this question can guide your actions and choices, shaping the lasting impact you have on the world around you. Take a moment to reflect on the kind of memory you wish to create, and let it inspire you to live a life of purpose and meaning.
