You may be asking yourself what all this positive thinking talk has to do with thinking legacy. After all, “Think Legacy” is the tagline on the Welcome page of the website, right? Absolutely. Also on the Welcome page is some questions that most of us would answer with a resounding “YES”. We all (at least most of us) want to make a positive impact on the world (or at least those we care about). But how do we do it? That’s where positive thinking comes in. You have to THINK something before it can actually happen. Consider this, do you eat something before thinking “I’m hungry” or “I want such and such”? Probably not. At the very least you see the item then your mind registers that you can eat it, still in the mind. Everything we do consciously and purposefully requires some type of thought process before we physically take action. Our thoughts dictate what our bodies will do unless something in our consciousness tells us not to do it or that we can’t do it.
So what does this have to do with legacy? It’s simple really. If the legacy you want to leave behind requires that you have great wealth you must believe in your mind that you can have it. If you don’t think you can have it then you won’t. If your desired legacy includes fame or great recognition you must first think it is possible for you to achieve it. If you can’t think it will happen it never will. Henry Ford put is best this way, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right”.
And so, building your legacy starts in your mind with training your mind to focus on the positive in everything, to getting the best of every situation whether good or bad, to being determined that you can be all that you desire to be; this is where the Journey to Legacy begins…
