We’ve all got roles to fulfill in the journey of our life, from being a good son, daughter, parent, friend, cousin, niece, partner to even being a good neighbour, good human being and good citizen. It is how we fulfill the responsibilities in each of these roles that makes all the difference. With a strong will, honesty of purpose and seriousness intent, if we take action we can indeed change the world; first our own, and then the world. Each of us as a human being has the responsibility of leaving behind a legacy of a better world for future generations than the one we were born in. All change in the world is possible when we change ourselves. That is the responsibility of a good human being because our children also will leave in the same world. What we leave behind for our children is our choice. The choices we make would manifest into positive or negative consequences for the future generations. We each have the ability to create and rewrite our own destinies and legacies and this in turn will impact the destiny of the world. I Change to Change our world.
Among us, live common people, who make the time and have the courage to give back to the world something of value- however small, but a legacy no less. They go out into the world everyday, unknown and unsung and give their best to make our world a little better, to make our lives a little better and to be the change we seek! These are people like you and me from all walks of life and of all ages, who don’t give a second thought to their own comforts and their own well-being before stepping out to touch our lives with their selfless and tireless efforts to contribute in whatever manner they can, to make a small but positive difference to this world.
They are not driven by fame or by motivations of material gain. They are common people with uncommon zeal and willingness to go the extra mile for their fellow citizens and the co-habitants of this planet. They are the quiet ambassadors of positive change that our planet needs so urgently and yet they are so unassuming and unsung. They bring small changes which add up to a substantial change which can transform positively, the way we live and exist in this world! These are heroes who take their responsibility as citizens of this world seriously and without any expectations, to make this world a better place and inspire us to bring out the hero within us.
We recognise these heroes amongst us and salute their vision, enterprise, journey and legacy they leave behind through a unique and most credible and globally coveted recognition and awards program
Every human being on earth will leave behind a unique footprint. We are looking for the hero in you too. Would you like to leave behind a unique legacy? If you do, what do you want your legacy to be? How do you want to be remembered? Do you hope to be remembered in a positive way? Most of us do. So then we must ask ourselves.
Are we living our lives to reflect the legacy we want to leave behind? Are we doing our bit to create a legacy of a better world as good human beings who fulfill their responsibility as human beings? We may be unable to change everything, but we can surely change something. Are we changing something? All change in the world starts by changing ourselves; Have we understood to practice the simple mantra “I Change to Change Our World?”
Some of us may live to be a 100 and most of us significantly less. But whatever our lifespan, each day brings forth plenty of opportunities to make our mark. Each of us is meant to shine, to manifest the goodness within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in each of us. Just as we inspire people, we are a product of the inspiration of people whose paths have crossed ours. How we live our lives is thus remarkably important.
Each human being is a masterpiece at work, unfolding our uniqueness and beauty with each passing day, and every single thing we do or say today will leave behind an imprint in the minds and hearts of people around us. People will remember the impact we had on them and the memories they created with us. We have the potential to redirect someone’s life with just a word or a simple action. Regardless of what we do, we most certainly are leaving a record of our time here, an impression of our life on earth.
It is incredibly important then for each of us to reflect on the uniqueness we will leave behind when we are gone.
What will my legacy be? This should be a question each of us should ask at some point in our lives. In fact, this is a question we should ask as often as we can.
