Years from now people may not remember everything about you, but there will always be certain memories about you that leave a lasting impression. This episode talks about being aligned with your legacy.

I was catching up with a friend who knows someone that recently accepted a professorship at a college. When I heard the subject of the class she’s teaching, I thought it sounded so progressive and impressive for the college kids taking the course. It’s a class all about legacy, which will include an assignment where the students write their obituary to reflect what impact they hope to have in life.

I’m here to spend quality solo time with you for EP151’s Wise Walk as we discover our True Stride. I think a class to think about legacy is a great opportunity for these college students. There’s so much going on while in college that people don’t always look further down the path of life. This class allows the students to lead with the end in mind and be intentional.

On our Wise Walk, I talk about being aligned with your legacy. Building a legacy means intentionally staying committed to what you envision. Come with me as we reflect on these Wise Walk questions:

    • In whatever stage of life you’re in, do you know what type of legacy you want to leave behind?
    • Are you living intentionally in the present as if what you envision is exactly what’s going to happen?
    • What example does your legacy leave for others?
    • If how you’re living now is not how you want to be remembered, can you shift your energy to get in alignment?
    • What steps can you take to embody the intentions of your legacy?

We’re creating a legacy in every interaction. All the small and big moments leave a trail of who we’ve chosen to be and that impact ripples years after we’ve left this life.

Let’s remember to live from love, not fear, as we make room for the legacy we’re building. Live your legacy today with these Wise Walk questions:

    • Am I in alignment?
    • Am I living from love instead of fear?
    • Am I supporting myself to increase my vibration?
    • Am I speaking my truth?
    • Am I giving myself permission to choose again?
