“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.” Shannon L. Alder
Usually, when we think about a legacy we look into areas monetary in nature. Alder’s thought is one that points to the true nature of the legacy we leave.
What would we want others to say if we were to write our own eulogy? How do we want others to remember us?
If we know the nature of the words we want spoken when we leave this earth, it is vital that we live that way now. The good we want others to remember does not happen by accident, but it involves the effort we put forth now to make a difference in the lives of others.
Engrave on the hearts of those who know us the type of words and actions that demonstrate our love and care. The result will be memorable.
Leadership involves a special role and when we lead others in the way of integrity, righteousness, and truth, the legacy lives on in future generations.
