Many people today are so overwhelmed by political issues, the global financial crisis, and their own personal problems that they aren't fully playing the game of life. As citizens of planet Earth there are so many things we can do to truly make a difference for generations to come, which should really be our principal focus, as well as enjoying the journey. What if we could leave a legacy that would bless others for decades or even centuries?

Webster's Online Dictionary defines legacy as "a gift of property by will, especially of money or other personal property; a bequest." Legacy also means something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or someone from the past, as in "the legacy of the ancient philosophers."

I personally like the second definition, because it's not about inheriting money, it's about teaching future generations the principles that can empower them to create their own financial success. It's teaching them how to fish instead of simply giving them a fish.

Have you ever asked yourself, "How will I be remembered?" or "In what way am I truly contributing and making this world a better place for my loved ones and mankind?"

In my years in network marketing I've found it to be a perfect vehicle for people who are searching and striving for success. As we grow in the profession, we have mentors who are willing to teach us what got them to where they are, and because of this we in turn have the ability to transform countless other lives.

When I first got involved in network marketing I was young and broke. I may have looked good and driven a nice car but the truth was I was miserable, depressed, and desperate. I didn't know where I was going or where to find answers to my questions. Thank God I found some dedicated leaders who took me under their wing and taught me the principles of success and how to apply them to my business.

I feel blessed that at a young age I had mentors who showed me the way to create massive results. My commitment to the universe is to do for millions of others what they did for me.

My purpose is to empower large numbers of people to recognize their inner power and use it to live their dreams. My passion is to teach people the principles that will set them free from their self-imposed limitations and help them realize that they have unlimited potential. Everything we desire is within our reach, or the desire wouldn't have been planted in us. However, we need to learn how to use our God-given power to manifest our dreams. The legacy I want to leave is to raise the consciousness on our planet by teaching people the universal principles to do exactly that.
