So what do you think is most important; wealth or your legacy?
One of the biggest mistakes people make when trying to make any significant improvement to their lives is focussing almost solely on making money quickly, in the deluded belief that all their problems will be solved and they will be truly happy…
Yes, money is important and most truly successful people are rich…
…however, none of them became insanely rich overnight (unless they won the lottery or inherited the family fortune!).
It is also a fact that there are plenty of rich but unhappy and unfulfilled people out there!
The only way to ensure that your life is truly fulfilled is to spend the time to develop your mindset, define your vision, and discover your true passion in life… then the financial rewards will come too!
One of the main things that all truly successful people have in common (whether it’s entrepeneurs like Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, etc. or more philanthropical people over the years; Albert Einstein, Leonardo Da Vinci, Gandhi, etc…); they have all created / are creating a legacy, and will be remembered for what they did during their lives and changed / are changing the world in some way…
…So, what will be YOUR legacy?
…and how would YOU like to be remembered?
Well, this might sound a bit strange (or even macabre!), but have a go at writing your own epitaph.
What message should be written on your grave headstone when you die?
Think about it… isn’t the the real measure of your level of success what people will remember you for after you are gone?
Note also, that most rich and successful people give a portion of their wealth to good causes; usually aligned to their passions, values, and beliefs.
In this way, their reputation and legacy is enhanced (and, actually, they generate more wealth as a result).
No doubt, you will also have noticed that very few people get wealthy by working for somebody else….they have the mindset and confidence to ‘go it alone’ as entrepreneurs aligning their business interests with their passions.
The best way to get started on the road to financial freedom and the life you truly want is to start your own business, and the best way to start is to create a part-time online business which you can grow until you are ready to ‘go it alone’ full-time…
…One of the easiest and best ways to do this is as an ‘affiliate’; marketing other peoples products and making commissions on everything you sell.
To learn how to do this ‘step-by-step’ and get started for free, we are in the process of creating a clear step by step guide…
