How will you be remembered?

On November 4, 2010, in Mission, by Michal

At your funeral, what are people going to say about you? What do you want them to say about you?

A really great way to discover more about your mission in life and who you are going to be as a person is by wondering what your funeral is going to be like.

Sounds depressing? It doesn’t have to be! Of course people will be very sad, but wouldn’t it be cool if for example a young girl would say:

“When I grow up, I want to be like her!”
“I want to live my life the way that she did”
“She impacted so many people!”

Death is inescapable! But you are alive now, and you can have direct influence on what people will say when the day comes that you will no longer be on earth.

What I did some time ago was think about this and then write it down. Every now and then I review what I wrote down and think of some things I need to change. On the top of the paper I wrote:

How do I want to be remembered? What will be my legacy?
