The question I would imagine you’re asking now is how do you live this legacy life.
Where do you start?
What do you focus on?
I would hope that you gathered from yesterday’s post that you get to decide the answers to those questions!
There’s not a specific way that I can tell you to live your legacy life.
You’re going to have to choose how you want to do that yourself. And you’re going to have to ask yourself a lot of questions. You’re going to need to spend time in prayer. Prayer will allow God to show you the areas of your life that you need to focus on.
A tool I’ve created to help you work through some of this process can be found here. This workbook will help you walk through several questions that address areas of your life that are affected by your legacy. The post also shares specifically how I work to keep legacy on my mind.
Basically, I choose each morning to spend time with God. I choose my attitude and approach for the day. John Maxwell would suggest that you spend some time at the beginning of the morning choosing how you are going to add value to the people you will encounter’s life. I consider what will happen each day and how I can bring something to the table to bless those individuals. When making big decisions (and sometimes even little decisions!), I consider the outcomes of those decisions.
I remind myself that making a mistake should not be considered failure. Deciding on the areas of your life to focus on is not going to cause an immediate change in your life. Rather, it’s going to cause you to need to do some work. You’re going to have to put in effort. And sometimes, despite our efforts, we’re going to fail at attempting to live a legacy life. But failure should be considered a way for you to learn how to do things differently next time!
What is the next step you need to take in order to start building your legacy life?
