How many years will you live? When you “pass on,” what will you pass on? When you leave this existence, what will you leave behind that will outlive you?

Are you at a point in your life where you are asking, “What is my life all about?” Have you achieved sufficient success that you are now asking what is next? Are you looking for something that will truly make the most of your energy and talents and will give you a sense of creating a lasting legacy?

If you are seeking answers to these types of questions, this book is for you. Our hope is that this book will expand your thinking and that you will discover new possibilities for extending the impact of your life beyond your mortal journey in this world.

The Goal: Positively Impact the Lives of Other People
Ultimately, creating a legacy means doing things in such a way that your efforts today will positively impact other people’s lives well beyond the course of your life.

It is all about leaving the earth having personally contributed to the improvement of humanity.

Simply by being who we are, we all influence others to some degree—we have an impact on their lives.

When you commit your life to making a difference for others, you allow others to further who they are in ways that would not have been possible otherwise. Your influence upon them can even transform their lives.

Said differently, your life becomes a model, a model that matters. How you choose to shape that model can create a life that will endure well beyond your lifetime.
