His legacy will live on…

Jim Rohn passed away on Dec 5th —

He had a profound effect on me and countless other people…

His life and way of looking at everything changed our world forever and helped move us into a time of conscious living and deliberate creation…

He will be missed but his legacy will live on.

This presses me to ask a very important question of you…

What do you want your legacy to be?

It doesn’t have to be a legacy of global impact…

It doesn’t have to be anything other than what you want it to be…

But you need to know how you want to leave this world…

My mother always used to tell me to leave my campsite better than I found it…

So how will you leave the world better than you found it?

What small or large way will you leave your imprint?

Leave me a comment to let me know — and if you don’t know, we can work on that too!

Go Big!

    I’m sorry that someone so important to you has passed on.

    Seems to me that there’s the personal and the structural and that we each impact the world on at least those two levels. I’m quite happy with what I’ve been able to do structurally – I know my work over thirty years in Africa and Asia…as well as in Canada…has had positive impact.

    Personally, I think I’ve dug a hole that will take some time to climb out of. And the regret is on that level – people that I love, or loved, who I treated badly and left less well off than when I found them.

    For that, I’m hoping that I have the time to at least get back to ‘neutral’. “At the least, do no harm” is a pretty good ‘least acceptable result’ to aim for.

    All the Best,

    When I depart this earth I want people to think of me; smile, radiate warmth and glow. Then take that energy into their day.

    I am leaving my imprint on my grandsons and granduaughter by telling them and quizing them on the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In doint that I am showing them the path of Freedom, to have and get what they want. Not through other people but by them selves. I tell them about my spiritual path, training, failures, and joy.
    They are good students, when we get together , they now want me and them to meditate to bring peacy , joy and abundance to each of us and the world.

    Sorry for the loss of your dear friend.

    The legacy I would want to leave is that I did everything I could to be kind to Mother Nature and helped others to do the same, therefore leaving a safer environment for my children and grandchildren.

    I am shocked to hear that Jim Rohn has passed away.I have listened to him speak so many times and savored every moment that I guess I thought of him as immortal. Mr.Rohn had such a way of breaking things down into the simplest but yet most profound way that you couldn’t wait to hear what he would say next. Sadly,I don’t have a clue what I want my legacy to be because I haven’t even been able to discover my passion yet. Do you know why it is so hard for some people to discover their passion(s)?

  7. Russ says:

    Untill I can improve my own life, I don’t know how I would leave a better world. I also don’t know you expect “we can work on that too.” Certainly interested in finding out though.

    For me, it’s a host of things. I now realize that it doesn’t have to be a global triumph, Small steps at first is what has worked for me, 1 after the other. I believe I read that in 1 of your blogs Kristen. Doing it instead of thinking about it or just talking about doing it, staying focused is key (hardest) for me. I really like to read, learn, so I am in too many directions at 1 time.

    I read 1 book about 2-3 months ago that changed my life, the author of that book is Rhonda Byrne.

    Impacting my families lives, my grandchildren’s lives.

    Thank you Kristen for your blogs. I read them all, Barb

  12. Linda says:

    I believe I am here to see, feel and experience love. So when I leave this stay on earth I would like for to be remembered loving others, loving what I did, loving who I am, loving where I am…. If another can feel and experience the realness felt in true love, I’d like that spoken of.

    The death of a person diminishes us all. Your loss is everybody’s loss. But instead of grieving we just must be thankful that we know the person who just passed away. In any case, let me answer your question on what we want to leave behind in this world as a legacy. It would have to be in connection with what I have worked for for most of my life. I chose to be a writer, painter, and social psychologist and I am pleased that I am all three. In the process of living I have entered many fields, like advertising, public relations, journalism, and the academe. My interests encompassed so many things. I would just like to say that I have always tried to disprove the saying, “Jack of all trades, master of none.” I tried to be a Jack of many trades and a master of just as many. Because of my many interests, I am acquainted with many fields. I just would like to say that the legacy I want to leave behind, if at all, is the belief that one must not limit oneself by closing many doors but must take care to open doors which could lead to opportunities for learning even as one enjoys life to the fullest. The world is there for the taking. One can cross bridges to the rest of the world even if one stays in just one corner. Our information age makes this possible and we must take advantage of that. What I want to say is that we can reach out to people in so many ways. I believe in imagination unlimited. In the end, I just want to be able to make an impact on whoever hears of me so that it can be said that I left this world a better place because I passed this way.

    Hi Kristen,
    Granted, I want to be responsible for directing People towards the core universal teachings found in Christianity, and Buddhist doctrines alike. Put in simple terms, I want to help them realize what it means to be a true human(sentient being), bring out their best moral traits. Doing my bit to contribute to the development of a possible global Pureland!Everyone self governing and guileless.
    This may sound farfetched.
    But then again, its just my dream.

    I live a life of significance and leave a legacy by teaching my 3 young boys to also teach others to guard your mind- watch what you focus on and attract, do not let anyone rent space in your head and leave everyone better than you found them. Mannatech gives me the opportunity to change many lives daily and live at optimal level!
    I appreciate you.

    legacy!!! we are always seeking permanency aren’t we? can i see the false as false, & that’s the truth.

    For me it will be my art. People feel the energy and are inspired to also get creative, when they see my dancers. One day I hope more people will see that as with my dancers everyone can feel ‘good’, everyone can live an energised life, everyone can be uplifted when they follow their dreams and passions. That is what my work is about. I have tried to get it ‘out there’ as it’s a valid message and they’re beautiful but now, instead of running myself ragged trying to reach that dream of it being ‘out there’ I’m focussing on smaller steps and just believing.

    Hi, Kristen!
    I know Jim’s impact on you and the spirit of our company will live forever. I work for Herbalife and Jim did a lot of trainings for us around the world. Jim occupies a unique and special place in Herbalife and we will hold a memorial for him in January. Our Mission is to change people’s lives by providing the best nutrition and weight management products in the world and the best business opportunity in direct selling. This was legacy of Mark Hughes, president and founder of Herbalife and one of Jim’s best friends. And I hope this will be my legacy too: Helping people with health and wealth.

    Jeg vil gjøre mitt beste for meg og mine medmenneske som jeg bor. Når jeg forlater denne verden, vil det være andre mennesker å bli født. De vil gjøre store ting som vitenskap og åndelige behov. Deres ære er velsignet i sannhet og ånd er også min kjærlighet til menneskeheten. Jeg bor og dør i tro, håp og kjærlighet til dere alle … dere min fantastiske venner.

Their honor is blessed in truth and spirit is also my love for humanity. I live and die in faith, hope and love for all of you … you my wonderful friends.

    Go Big!!!!

  22. jack says:

    What small or large way will you leave your imprint? for this my answer would be to serve God fully to have faith in him strong faith that will in turn enable me to face any thing in the world, to be an example of love to be honest with my self&with others,to love peoples,to care for the poor and disabled to teach peoples about God almighty, to be the change that i want to see in the world, to solve peoples problems,to help them, in short to do every spritual and moral things and if i do this i dont care about the rest

    I will be content knowing that I’ve helped make the world a safer and happier place to be for everyone, taking it to a higher level which will bring us a far better understanding of ourselves and our abilities

    Hi Kristen,

    having childeren is one way of knowing that your legacy is on good hands.To teach the childeren everything the need to evolve and grow into what they see themselves become will become the greatest legacy.
    As grandparents leave behind something for there childeren there’s no better way then to teach your childeren more then just about the wealth but as much as there health both physical & mental so they will be able to withstand anything & bounce back after some setbacks.By teaching them as much as about wealth & health the subject on spirituality and how to free your mind from any entrapment which will come there way the same entrapment called the industry which will have you believe this is all you can become to know and understand there’s something greater at work wanting everyone to find there place in this world and put it back on track.


  28. Pat says:

    I really have no idea what I want to leave as a legacy. Maybe that those close to me would remember the good things I’ve done.

  29. Rosemary says:

    I’m just getting around to reading this blog, Kristen, so would like first to offer my condolences for Jim Rohn’s death. He will be missed.

    When I am asked what I want to leave as a legacy, I draw a complete blank. I know what I want to do with my life, but what others will recall or benefit from my existence is theirs to figure out. Like Ron, I want to teach others about the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Founding Fathers’ vision about freedom and liberty, about self-motivation and self-interest, but also about morality and doing what is best for all. As a Rotarian, I take to heart the Four Way Test:

    Is it the Truth?
    Is it fair to all concerned?
    Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
    Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

    Last night, I had dinner with my two dearest friends in all the world (47 and 46 years, respectively), and expressed my commitment to doing what is right, to giving more than I am asked to give in service, and both of them exclaimed “You are rare.” What I want to leave to the world is that this quality is not rare, it is possible for all.
