What legacy will you leave?


This is a question we should all ask ourselves. You don't have to answer aloud, but please at least ask yourself the question. 

Childless or not, we should ponder what we're leaving our next generation. We often hear people say "Leave a better planet for our next generation" or "The government is spending too much money, what about our next generation?" 

My question is, what are we actively doing and or building OURSELVES for our next generation? What kind of shape will our family be in when our number is called and we have to go home to be with the Lord? This isn't supposed to be scary talk, this is about planning. It's been said "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." Do you have a plan? Are you working it?

The good book says a good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children. That's several generations. 

As it sits, right now, what are you set to leave your kids? An inheritance, a business, property, accounts, or bills? Or re-released Jordans? 

What legacy will you leave?

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory.

Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
