Lisa Nichols – Leave The Legacy

“How will you live every day, and how will you impact people for the better—improving the world for others who’ll (hopefully) take up your work when you are compelled to pass the torch?” – Lisa Nichols

If you look at some of the most iconic figures in the 20th century in America, to the late 20th century in South Africa.  Those who made an unbelievable sacrifice to better the lives for the next generations to come.

 

On the other hand, our individual accolades is all we can control.  First, we have to be the difference we want to see in the world.  It’s kind of like the colleague that complains endlessly about everything but doesn’t provide any solutions.  The “circle of influence” is all we can control.  If we start taking those micro win steps that ultimately lead to small goals, which then leads to the macro win goals….it will give us long-term momentum to the point we want to achieve goals ALL THE TIME because of the feeling.

I love using the reference about the two school students at an International School who provided a small village in Cambodia clean water, food, and a school to learn English. These two unique individuals have made a loud entrance to creating a legacy, and they will continue supporting and improving the lives of others who seemingly can’t create anything given their situations.

“What does it mean to live your legacy? It requires amassing financial wealth, of course. But it also suggests that you should fill your life with a passionate career, rewarding experiences, nurturing relationships, supportive friendships, a beautiful home where you and family can renew and restore, hobbies and shared opportunities that bring you together with evolved and aware people, philanthropies and charities that you establish or support, traditions that you start—the sum total of a rich and rewarding lifestyle that you enjoy and that provides countless opportunities to bring others along with you.

When you complete this life, how will people view the mission, the activities, and the connections that you pursued? How will those you’ve carried along with you use these assets after you are gone to further your work and adopt your dreams as their own?

Have you ever thought about it?

What, if anything, is holding you back from doing so?” – Lisa Nichols

Jack Canfield -How Much, By When?

Bob Proctor once asked a gentleman during an interview more than 30 years old, “how much money do you want?”

He replied, “a lot?”

“That’s not measurable.  That’s not a number.  You’re not specific so the universe has no idea how much “a lot” is.”

To make sure a goal releases the power of your subconscious mind, it must meet two criteria: how much (some measurable quantity such as pages, pounds, dollars, square feet, points) and by when (a specific time or date).

“I will have a six pack.”  That’s not as measurable as “I will have a six pack by the end of the month.”

The time and date is the most important because giving that specific aspect of your goals lets just say expedites it.  Include every little details about the goal you want to achieve.  The color, size, features, etc.  The more vague you are, the more vague the results are.

Jack Canfield also held a seminar whereas this lady specifically said, “I want a lot of money.” So he (acting as a universe) gave her a dollar.  She said, “I want more.”  He gave her an extra quarter and said, “is this enough?”

“No.  I want more!”

“Well be more specific,” he said.

A Goal Versus A Good Idea

Here’s a few examples on how to engage your subconscious mind, a goal or objective.

  • Good Idea

I would like to own a nice home on the ocean.

I want to lose weight.

I need to treat my employees better.

  • Goal or Objective

I will own a condominium in Pattaya oceanside on the 37th floor just outside Jomtien beach.

I will lose 5 pounds by April 15th, 2017.

I will give 25$ bonuses to each employees at the end of the month when all tasks are met.  If they complete more than what they’re paid to do, I’ll add on a vacation day.

The specificity that comes along with goal setting needs to be vivid.  Example, if you want a home, write down the location, landscaping, furniture, artwork, sound system, floor plan.  If you don’t have an idea, go on houzz.com.  They have such a wide variety of perks for home decor.

When you write it all down, your subconscious mind will know what to work on.  It will know which opportunities to home in on to help you reach goal.

When you create your goals, be sure to write down some big ones that will stretch you and require you to grow to achieve them.  It’s a good thing to have some goals that make you a little uncomfortable.  Why?  Because the ultimate goal, in addition to achieving your material goals, is to become a master at life.  And to do this, you will need to learn new skills, expand your vision of what’s possible, build new relationships, and learn to overcome your fears, considerations, and roadblocks.
