What Will They Say About You?

Legacy.

When I was in Iraq, I worked in a hospital. Whenever we had a “mass casualty” event, I would run up there and help out in whatever way I could. As you can probably imagine, I unfortunately saw a lot of people pass away.

More than I’d ever care to really think about.

That always stuck with me.

How fragile and brief this life really is. How quickly it can all be taken away from us. And, I’ve always tried to live my life as if today could be my last. Because, the truth is… it very well could be. Nothing is promised.

Then, there’s my parents.

I’ve watched them grow old with regret. My dad is an entrepreneur at heart… but never really could put all the pieces together. Every time, I see him I can see the pain of the missteps and missed opportunities in his eyes.

And my mom…

She just wanted to provide for my brothers and I. I think watching us suffer the way we did just killed her inside and she’s always has this look of “I’m sorry” in her eyes every time I see her.

It’s painful to watch.

Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook out of his college dorm room. Apple famously started in a garage. Many of the giants of today were started from very humble beginnings yesterday.

That means there’s nothing stopping you from being one of the giants of tomorrow.

Whether that’s a giant for the whole world… or just for your kids and your spouse.

You are smart enough.

You are capable enough.

You do have what it takes.

But, the last thing you want is to grow old with regret. To look back and wonder, “what if”. The question you should be asking isn’t, “How do I make a buck today”… which is what I get so often… but how will you be remembered tomorrow?

What will they say about you?

What will your legacy be?

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
