“Instead of saying ‘I want to lose weight or become financially stable this year’; start with a simple “legacy” question – ‘How do you want to “live your legacy?’ OR ‘What do you want to pass down to the next generation of how you lived or thought’ – this is your legacy statement.”
– Carew Papritz
Legacy Instead of Resolutions.
By the second week of February, about 80% of people will fall off the resolution wagon.
Instead of wasting time on something that will be a memory by March, inspirational author Carew Papritz says to replace it with a personal legacy statement that captures the significance of one’s life, not just part of their life.
A personal legacy statement is your declaration of how you’d like to live your life and impact others from an ethical standpoint. It’s different from goals, which are about achievements. It provides a vision that directs those tiny decisions that make up who you are. You don’t have to be knocking on death’s door to think about your legacy. In fact, the earlier you start to develop a legacy-driven mindset, the more likely you are to succeed both personally and professionally.
“Instead of saying “I want to lose weight or become financially stable this year”; start with a simple “legacy” question-How do you want to “live your legacy?” OR what do you want to pass down to the next generation of how you lived or thought-this is your “legacy statement…”
…says Papritz, who has devoted his life and career to the idea of legacy, purpose, and reason. Through his best-selling book The Legacy Letters, he provides back-to-basics life lessons about the importance of leaving a footprint for future generations.
