What Type of Emotional Legacy Are You Leaving Your Family?

I had remarried a couple of years before and was busy at home trying to establish a new consulting business. We had a typical family life with three teenagers at home with lots of distractions and noise; it was often hard to concentrate on my work.

My frustration was showing up in ways that I was barely aware of. One day my wife said to me very calmly, “Neill, it’s bothering the kids how you are snapping at them. If you don’t do something about it, you will end up as a lonely, grouchy old man.”

The truth of that simple statement hit me like a ton of bricks. It wasn’t that I could end up as a lonely old man. That could happen anyway. What hit me was the thought that my family would remember me as a grouch. I could not allow that to be my emotional legacy. The internal shift was instantaneous.

It is often easy to see in others what emotional legacy they are leaving…

• He always has a chip on his shoulder.

• She is always cheerful.

• He is always worried.

• She knows the sky is falling.

• He sees the humor in everything.

• He loves people and can always forgive.

• She is the eternal victim.

We all see such people and many more with particular emotional characteristics, some good and some not so good, but how well do they see themselves?

It may “take all types of people to make a world,” but what kind of world do you want? It seems to me we’re all in this together, and because we are, it matters what effect we individually have on other people. Do we add to their happiness? Has the legacy of our emotional lifestyle made some small positive contribution to human happiness?

I contend that it doesn’t matter how much money you make or how much stuff you accumulate, if your style of life is emotionally negative, you cannot add to the happiness of others. Having said that, I must stress that as human beings we have both negative and positive qualities. What counts is the balance of positive to negative.

My grandmother, as a widow, raised nine children during the great depression. Quite an accomplishment! But unless I stop to think about it, I remember her simply as a depressing worrier. On reflection, one of my uncles achieved great things, but I remember him as mean and judgmental. Another relative failed many times, but what I remember of him was his optimistic and inspiring nature.

I invite you to reflect for a moment on relatives and other people you have known that are now gone. What comes to mind first? Was it their physical accomplishments or was it their emotional legacy?

Each of us can contribute to making the world a better place by giving more space in our lives to reflecting on our own emotional legacy. As I found out years ago, becoming aware of an imbalance can be quite startling.

Your emotional legacy:

Here is a little self-reflective exercise to do periodically. Write down your epitaph, paying attention to your emotional legacy, as it would be if you left this plane right now. Is it closer to:

“Here lies__________, who shed light on dark souls.”

or to

“Here lies__________ in his natural state, cold”

Now rewrite your epitaph to reflect your emotional legacy as you would like it to be. Make it happen.

Legacy For Life – Honest Legacy For Life Business Review

Is Legacy for Life worth the nutrition or the wealth factor?

Perhaps this question may even pop up in your mind when you come across the legacy for life corporate website. Even for me, all that was mentioned was that one of the top reasons to join is to “be your own boss”.

Now, before we get any deeper I believe you should at least know the details from the ground up.

1) The Start Of Legacy For Life

As you might guess, legacy for life didn’t start off on its own. In 1980, a joint venture between DuPont and ConAgra gave birth to the subsidiary company now known as Legacy for Life. Dr. Hellen Greenblatt (Chief Science Officer for Legacy) was involved in an immune system research project.

By 1995, her team had already perfected a scientific process called polyvalent egg technology that would soon produce the i26® or Immune26 product. This is their flagship product.

2) For Product Or For Wealth?

Before we go any further, I want to set something straight. We cannot simply judge a company by way of its wealth alone. Not even its opportunity. What you need to learn is the legitimacy and the basic understanding of Legacy for Life’s products.

Immune26® comes from ‘healthy hens’ and is said to be good for your body’s immune system. While Legacy for Life’s new Trimberry product is just a combination of juices with a “slimming” effect. The effectiveness of these products is yet to be proven scientifically.

3) How Your Compensation Plan Works

Your interest all comes down to this. How will you actually stand to earn any money? Well, for obvious reasons I’ll not dabble too long but just enough to reveal some facts.

Legacy for Life is built on a network marketing system. Recently, they have changed it to a binary system. So, you could earn 20% on retail plus some team and leadership bonuses. It all boils down to your ability to recruit and train potential network marketing veterans.

The Bombshell

The simple truth is, you have to be pretty good at recruiting other like minded individuals if you are to succeed with Legacy for Life. Please understand, you can surely earn in this business but you could definitely do much better by learning how to market effectively online.

Leave A Lasting Legacy

What if your legacy was that you complained, were in a lack space, said I don’t have enough, had a victim mentality, thought that I can’t get through this, or I can’t get an education. Get away from this. Get away from being a victim, to taking control of what you can in your life, so that you can move forward and enjoy the bounty of it.

It starts with me and the understanding that every morning I wake up I am contributing to my legacy.

As you go forward, enjoy the moment. My dog, Kaos, passed away at age 17. I still think about him. We have to remember our special moments and capture them. Write your memories down.

You will hear me say that the past is not real, just memory traces. From a philosophical standpoint or a scientific standpoint, it is real. Enjoy the present, build memories every day. Present moments accumulate into a legacy.

Don’t try to do this all in one day, like I did in the past. It is the progression of a dream, of who we become, as we leave our legacy. That is what is important. Your story will help your great-great-grandchildren, and help others as you have gone through certain things and came out the other side: things that may have held you back or not worked out well at the time. Things that you thought were negative at the time. Other people will be able to relate to these situations, and it will inspire them to get through the difficult time they may be in.

In this way, they can focus on the positive, knowing things will work out, and move forward. You can work your legacy every single day, doing the little things that make the massive difference in life.

You have to be very cautious about your home. Your home is very sacred. If you watch the news, you will hear a lot about how there is not enough. That things are dissipating. That we can’t move forward. All of these statements are going to hurt you from an abundance standpoint.

When you live in lack, you are going to get more lack. When you are surrounded by lack attitude, that is what is going to continue to come into your life: lack. Can you break through this to really enjoy life and get to where you need to be?

You can start a shift day by day. You can get the energy in the right area. You can focus on the positives that are going to make the big difference in your life. The daily activity and focus in the morning is so critical, so that you can focus on the growth that is going to make the big difference in your life. It comes over psychological time, and it will happen if you continue to progress.

It is not just the achievement of the life. It is the living of the life that is so critical. It is the living of the life that leaves the legacy. It all starts with a shift in our attitude.
When we can tie into the abundance energy, when we believe that there is an overflow of bounty, when we believe that we can make a difference, then we will get the clarity, and be able to leave our legacy.

Why not start today, and write your story? You can start a blog or any other thing. Don’t worry if the start is slow. Don’t worry how many people are reading. If only three people come, love those three people. It’s about the individual. Each person is important, and we need to work with each individual person.

Get your story out there. We want to hear your story. What are you achieving? What are you going after? What are your dreams? How can we help you get to where you want to be, in a team effort? A lot of amazing people can leave amazing legacies as we watch the consciousness of the planet shift. Amazing shifts are happening and you are a part of it in this moment!
