How a man views fear will shape his life, his love, and his legacy. From a young age we’re taught to use fear as a gage. If something scares us, we are to stay away from it.

Instead, we act like we have all the time in the world, and it shows in our priorities and what we do on a daily basis. Then you talk about someone in their 70′s or 80′s and they think about their Legacy. They speak with a sense of urgency about what their life will mean after they’re gone. Their decisions show this. Our decisions don’t.
Why did I do what I did today?
We spend so much of our lives doing what’s expected of us. We spend so little time thinking about our Legacy and what our life will mean after we’re gone. Our days lack passion, excitement, and purpose. But there are also very simple ways to cure this, and that’s what we’re going to discuss in this article. Read the rest of this entry »
