“Remember those who think they’re crazy enough to change the world do”
Many are mourning the loss of Steve Jobs right now, the man was a visionary. As I’ve read all the things that are being said about him, I gained even more respect for him. I have an I Phone, an I Pod, I use I Tunes everyday, so I have a deep respect and admiration for Steve Jobs. The thing that has hit me the most about his death is his legacy, there are lines of people who are testifying of the legacy that he left behind. His legacy will carry on well after I’m dead because of what he created will stand the test of time.
Here’s the question: What will we say about you after your gone?What will they say about me?
When you think about that question, it’s kinda of depressing. I know for me personally I have talked about all the things I want to do and am going to do but how many have I acted on? How many things have you acted on that you said you were going to do? If we want to have any kind of legacy we need to stop talking and start acting.
- Take action now!
Talk is cheap, we have all heard it before, I know this because I’ve been there with everyone else saying it. We need to stop telling people what we’re going to do and just do it. Take that first step, start that thing you’ve been wanting to do. We can’t wait on you any longer, we need you to act now!!!
- Don’t listen to the naysayers!
There’s always going to be some person in your ear telling you how you can’t do it. Telling you lies like: “you need to be realistic, with this economy that will never work”. I say to politely tell them to shut up, we have work to do. You have to go after your dreams no matter what anyone says, even those close to you!
- Have people keep you accountable!
You need that one friend or family member that’s going to irritate you with how many times they ask you about your progress. Everytime you see them, their asking you what’s the latest and they tell you you’re not doing enough, you will be upset and frustrated but believe it or not, you need this.
- Do what you’re passionate about
What’s that one thing that gets you going, that you could just talk about all day. Is it work (like me), is it parenting, is it cancer? I don’t know what your passion is or what you want to do in life but whatever it is, do it. You will be the best at it, you’ll be the “expert” at the thing that is your passion!
- Work on it everyday, don’t give up!
It’s not going to be easy building something, starting your movement but if you work on it day in and day out, you can do it. It might seem sometimes that you’re talking to no one, say it anyway. It might seem like no on is interested in your project, build it anyways. Push through the doubt and fear in your mind and bring your legacy to life.
We all know that life is short, yet we don’t live like it. We only have a limited amount of time to make our mark on the world and attempt greatness, why are we standing around?
So what’s it going to be for you? Are you going to move forward or are you going to attempt to stay in the status quo? Let us know in the comments:
