How do we become what we are? New studies suggest that some aspects of human personality are inborn and resistant to change. Ironically, this makes the role of environment all the more important in shaping individual lives. We do become what we pay attention to and practice. Have you noticed this yet? The more you do something, the more you are it, although we are certainly more than what we do, we do indeed become what we practice.
Aristotle said “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”.
What we can be sure of is that we are more than the mere sum of our actions. But let’s not for one second delude ourselves into thinking our action don’t matter. That discipline and devotion aren’t essential to the formation of character and value systems, because they are no question about it. The more you do, the more you become, and the more you dream, the more you can build castles in the sky. So what do you want to be known for in this your lifetime?
What will it take for you to leave a legacy, if you want to do meaningful work in this life? If you want to be someone who makes an impact, who leaves a legacy and is remembered for greatness – then you had better start acting like it . NOW.
Tell me to what you pay attention and I will tell you who you are. Said by “Jose Ortega Gassett”.
What are you paying attention to in your life right now? And how is it unfolding into your lifestyle and is it what you desire? How many things are constantly seeking your attention and how are you embracing only the ones that have meaning to your purpose? It is so easy to lose focus we all do from time to time but what you must work on are the things that matter most and are in alignment with your purpose and your vision.
The notion of wanting to leave something that is greater than you when you die is very alluring. It must be said that far too many people buy into it for the wrong – inaccurate – reasons. Many buy into it because it sounds cool and it does who wouldn’t want to create something that stands the test of time? But, those who think this way don’t consider why it might be a good/bad idea to think about leaving behind a legacy. Let’s look at some common information on this topic.
A lot of people speak of the importance of creating something of their own, they speak of finding an original way to produce value and building a long lasting business based on it. In short they speak of leaving behind a legacy that goes beyond the present moment. Many are attracted to this philosophy, why? Simple, because it is in our DNA.
What this speaks to is the human elements of truth and beauty and the spirited warrior that is within us all. When you begin to pay attention to the inner drive and purpose of your being the faith to achieve it becomes real. Paying attention to your health and visualizing the success that you are here to materialize will lead you to your victory. You are here to pay attention and tune into your inner voice it will lead you to where you are meant to be,simply pay close attention it is written and is yours and yours alone.
Until the next time, take good care and be well.
