Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
What an incredible image; to leave footprints on the sands of time. Put another, to leave a legacy for future generations in the form of thoughts and actions that perhaps guide others to make their lives better. There are no accidents in this universe and the fact that you’re reading this is also by design. We are all born to follow our passion and achieve greatness in life.[googmonify]4494413162:right:250:250[/googmonify]
Many of us, however, sell ourselves short, because we keep blaming circumstances and fail to notice that we are ultimately responsible for our own lives. We are here because we deserve it. If we don’t like it, all it takes is a new decision to change our attitude and actions and our lives will change for the better. So, decide today that you will leave a legacy for posterity. Remember these famous words from The Declaration of Independence: “That [mankind] is endowed with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness.” Don’t let anyone take them away from you.
