Live A Life Worth Remembering

The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering. One day, your heart will stop beating, and none of your fears will matter. What will matter is how you lived.
Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end.There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days. All things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else. To live a great life we have to be willing to overcome our fears. We all encounter fear on a daily basis. The major difference between the movers and shakers, and the people who remain stagnant throughout their lives is their willingness to face their fears on a regular basis. What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave. What will matter is not your success, but your significance. What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught. What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.

Since we are presented with challenges pretty regularly, we have to the vision to see that these challenges are just fear disguised as obstacles. Often times we lose sight on the places that we truly desire to be and the person we know we are destined to become, because we fear not knowing what is to come after we face these obstacles. What will matter are not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you. What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.

How will you live your life?  How will you remember it?  Personally I’d rather live a challenging and colorful life.  Something worthy and so memorable that you know you lived it fully. Use your vision to give focus on becoming who you want to become, not on the challenges that lie in the way. It will be a bumpy ride, but with strong belief and lots of hard work you will get there.
