One of our most precious opportunities in life is the legacy we will leave. It’s an absolute certainty we’ll leave one as it’s as predictable as taxes and passing. Legacies are left on humanity’s permanent record for others to see for all of time. It will say a lot about us. Most significantly, about what we did with our time and talents.
Everything we do throughout our lifetime is our legacy. People are continuously impacting people by everything we do and say.
Most people assume that a legacy is something that is assembled toward the end of life that’s comprised of our most significant achievements.
Most, therefore, do what is in their personal best interest in the here and now throughout life, without fully considering the impact on their legacy.
That’s certainly one way of looking at it, but, it’s not exactly the complete story.
Everything we do throughout our lifetime is our legacy. People are continuously impacting people by everything we do and say. That, fortunately, gives us an immense opportunity to influence people for the positive to enrich their life experience and their legacy. In that way, a bit of us lives on through others that they pass on to others.
To create our most memorable and impactful legacy it’s important that it be considered throughout a lifetime as life unfolds. When that’s done it changes the context for decision making.
Choices tend to be more mindful and prudent, increased prosperity prevails and the likelihood of living a life of exceptional achievement and contribution improves.

As a medical doctor, I saw a fundamental flaw in his information: plant-based proteins do not contain enough of each essential amino acid for most of to provide their bodies the wherewithall to optimize body protein synthesis. This is a fact observed through my own experience, through the experience of my patients, and backed by scientific research.
You know that the cardiovascular system is responsible for pumping blood and oxygen throughout your system, right? And that the endocrine system manages hormones? And that your nervous system relays messages throughout your body?
Well, underlying all these systems is an astoundingly complex electrical system.
This electrical system is busy sending an almost uncountable number of messages to the muscles, bones, brain, and the cells. The human brain is the home to approximately 100 billion neurons, each firing about 200 times every second.
Sometimes it feels like there are more types and brands of water than drops in the ocean. You go to the grocery store and discover a huge shelf packed with different brands of water that all claim to be health-beneficial. Add in the hundreds of in-house water purifiers, and it can seem like a “sea” of confusing options (cue the pun).
Thankfully, your choice doesn’t have to be that complicated.
