If there is a part of you that’s wondering about your legacy to this world, the very fortunate thing for humanity is that you are not alone.
The world is full of amazing, resourceful, giving people who find a sense of purpose in giving back and making a difference to their world. Their contribution may be large or small; it may be financial or in-kind; it may change the life of one person, or the lives of many; it can be fleeting or have long-lasting effects. Whatever the contribution, it changes lives.
Contribution is one of our human needs and can provide a sense of serving a greater purpose. Where contribution is one of someone’s highest human needs, one might feel incomplete without going beyond one’s own needs and giving to someone or something beyond themselves. The spiritual bond of giving beyond oneself provides a sense of connection, thus meeting another human need. It may also fulfil the human needs for certainty, significance, variety and growth.
I love that I get to share time with so many inspiring people and to hear wonderful stories about their unique legacies. And I am just so fortunate to be in my own business where the very essence of my work is about helping others to a greater level of empowerment.
