Some days, when you’re not entirely sure what you’re doing with your life, think about asking yourself the following question:
What would I like to be known for when my time runs out in life? What legacy do I want to leave behind?
Or let’s put it another way.
At your inevitable funeral one day, is THIS what you want people to say about you?
I first heard this term from an entrepreneur/social media guru named Gary Vanyerchuk. For some reason this really resonated with me.
Initially, I really didn’t think that what I’ve been to pull off with Renewal Rehab was that big of a deal. What I am starting to realize, is that it actually is.
There are quite a few physical therapists out there that have multiple clinics… It’s not like I’m the only one. But what is different about me, is how we have done it. Is isn’t your typical way… And I’m starting to realize that my purpose is to encourage future physical therapists to not think within the norms of our profession.
Leaving a Legacy
At this point in my life, I just feel like I have so much purpose. That for me goes a lot further than any monetary reward. Here’s a video that I did this morning for my private fitness groups talking about this subject.
Being financially rich IS NOT a legacy.
Just passing on money to the next generation isn’t necessarily a legacy either.
Remember, it’s only money at the end of the day. And, when you really think about it, the concept of money is a pretty absurd one.
On the other hand, leaving a legacy of thoughts, ideas and feelings – that’s something that has the power to change lives. And that’s something we should all aspire to do.
