Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy
Welcome to Day 812 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

The Legacy You Live – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our five days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 812 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little bit additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Bob Proctor, and it is, “Every person is going to leave a legacy. What kind of legacy do you want to leave?”
The Legacy You Live
Everyone has a reputation, especially with those who know us best. In the same manner, we all have a living legacy and will leave a legacy when we die. The only question is “What type of legacy are you living?” Although a legacy of material resources can be used to help others, a more important legacy that will impact generations to come is the positive influence and impact that you have on the lives of others.
Never underestimate the impact, positive or negative, that you have on those in your sphere of influence. That sphere of influence is much greater than you realize. Just as when a rock dropped into a lake has ever-expanding rings that ripple out from the point of impact, your life impacts those who are closest to you but then ripples out to many others. The only legacy that will live on through eternity is the impact you have on the lives of others, which will ripple through generations to come.
Focus on living a legacy each day then the legacy that you leave when you die will already be rippling through many generations to come. Let us follow the example in Titus 2:7, “And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching.”
That’s a wrap for today’s Wisdom Unplugged. If you enjoy these quotes, I have created and published a searchable database of over 10,000 quotes that I have collected for many years. If you would like free access to my database of inspirational quotes, the link is available on the main page of Wisdom-Trek.com.
