Legacy and Impact

Certain recent events have led me to reflect on the concept of legacy. It is a very noble thing to want to go out there and change the world. However, you may feel like you want to change something, but don’t know how or what. You take notes from those who have made a legacy for themselves, an impact that outlasts their lifetime. Were they caught up in changing the world at the time? Perhaps their actions and inclinations in the present were simply what they thought was the right thing to do. Each one of these small decisions led to a ripple effect which eventually, and essentially, changed the world. Maybe to change the world, you have to start with the substance of your work rather than the goal of being known. Otherwise, we could be after fame for the wrong reasons, and ultimately have no meaningful substance in our legacy.
