On the Death Bed

This past week my great grandma passed away and the funeral was held Friday. As I sat there during the service and saw the people who came and the things that were said about her it got me thinking. Our whole lives are a path to an end. But this end is more of a change. Instead of being on this earth we are gone but our legacy lives on through other people. There were so many people who were, in some way, helped by my great grandma. Her story will live on through these people and we will never forget of how she helped us. We all have the ability to create our own story. When our time comes there will be a story left behind of who we were and what we did. How will you be remembered?

You can decide where you want to end up. Decide where you want to go in life, what impact you want to make, and how you want to be remembered and do the things to reach that point. This works for everything from the gym to a job to a relationship. Decide the end result you want. Whether you want to get bigger, lose weight, become the boss, get married, whatever it may be. Once you decide that end result you have to devise a plan, know how to get there and DO IT. I promise you if you know where you want to be, you can get to that point. You just have to focus, sacrifice, and do the things you need to do. It may take some hard work but if you truly want to succeed and be that person then you will do it.

Be that person you want to be and do the things to reach that end and be remembered as a great person with a legacy that will live on.
