So, welcome to 2015, welcome to the new and improved you, welcome to greatness.
We start 2015 off with LEGACY. Enjoy.
Let's start off by describing what a Legacy is. In historical terms, a Legacy is something that is handed down from one period of time to another, one generation to another. Your Legacy will either be counted in history as a good or a bad thing.
So now we know what it is, it is now up to you to decide what you want your Legacy to be?
What are you going to do when time runs out, time waits for no man so we have to get at it and become great. We all know we only live once but we truly need to come to terms with that fact and say OK I don't have much time to leave my mark on the world so I better get to it.
Now it isn't up to us to tell you what kind of a Legacy you should leave, that is down to you and you alone because when that day comes that you leave this Earth, you only have one person to answer to and that is YOU! You have to be happy with what you leave.
Let's look at a few people and heir Legacy to get a feel for it.
Lionel Messi: so far just for Barcelona

His Legacy? The best player ever!
- DEVELOPED THE GENERAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY
- MASS ENERGY EQUIVALENCE FORMULA "E=MC2"
- DISCOVERED THE "PHOTOELECTRIC EFFECT"
His Legacy? He changed the face of modern physics.
- STARTED THE NAZI PARTY
- HIS REGIME WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR KILLING AN ESIMATED 19.3 MILLION CIVILIANS AND PRISONERS OF WAR WITH A FURTHER 29 MILLION AS A RESULT OF MILITARY ACTION
His Legacy? We all know how the world now and in the future will see him.
Just a few examples of a Legacy there. Now, of course we are in no way glorifying or saying that you should have or aspire for a Legacy like Hitler, he is just there as an example of the end of the scale we don't want to be near, so no need to get crazy folks.
So it is up to you what you want your kids and your grandkids saying about you after you die. Will they be telling stories to all who will listen about what a great person you were? or will they be telling your bloodline about how much of a waste of space you were, like a guest on Jerry Springer!
We know which one we choose, and we have started the process of building our Legacy with this very website, this very company of Life And Mind, the thousands upon thousands of people we motivate and help in their lives each and every day, the charities we contribute to. All of that and what we have planned for the future are what we are leaving behind in our Legacy. We will leave this world in a better state than we found it so that we are known for many generations after our time is up.
