What Will Your Legacy Be?

Aaron McHugh

Hello friends,

Where to begin? We just got home from attending my wife’s father’s funeral. Yeah-I know that’s a heavy opening line. His passing was unexpected, and I suspect it will take some time to make sense of it all.

Seeing a few hundred people come to say their goodbyes and pay their respects causes me to think about our legacy.

-What will the impact of our life be?

-What will people say about us?

-Are we living on purpose, causing and creating our legacy?

“Watch your words, they become actions; watch your actions, they become habits; watch your habits, they become character; watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

I know these are big questions for a Saturday morning. You know that I like to keep it real. This path we are on together to find work we love, live a life of impact and meaning, engage in our relationships and have a hell of a time living adventurously….it takes courage.

  • Courage to eject from the humdrum of life.
  • Courage to punch fear and passivity in the face.
  • Courage to live your life true to your heart.
  • Courage to pull the ripcord of safety and predictability as you walk the journey towards a whole heart.

When the dust settles, our bullshit facades won’t hold up. The people who love us most see us and are waiting for us to engage-stand up-be seen and show up to our lives. Go BIG!

A couple of courage pills to help you-
