Extract from recent article:

...Remember the perennial Christmas movie 'It's a Wonderful Life'?  If you were to imagine taking yourself out of the picture, how would life have been different for everyone around you- your family, friends, co-workers, strangers touched by your life work or simply passing through....?

Obviously we can never know for sure. But if there's even a niggling thought that you haven't  made anywhere near the kind of impact you would like to before you can't, then perhaps it's time to step up and do something about it.

One of the worst human feelings is regret. Don't leave yourself open to that. Here's how to start:

  • Take stock. Notice what great impact you've had, and where you want to make more of one. Build in plans to take action sooner rather than later.
  • Notice where you may have done or are still doing some 'damage'- in relationships, performances, personal habits or behaviors toward others
  •  Either forgive yourself, resolve to make good, and move on
  • Or seek to make restitution, either directly where possible (apologies, invitations, expressions of gratitude or kindness) or by paying it forward with kindnesses towards others instead

In reality, we can never know the impact of one life, including ours. But we can up the chances by being aware that we can make significant ripples of the good sort by being and acting from our highest and best self.  Design them in. Create your own Living Legacy, day by day.  That can only be good for everyone.
