No matter what type of entrepreneur you want to be, and no matter how much success you are trying to achieve, there is a question you must answer on your journey of success.

Without wasting any time, here it is: What do you want your legacy to be?

Do you want to be known as a great father/mother? Do you want to be known as someone who had it all? Do you want to change the world for the better? Do you simply just want to be known as a person who worked on his/her passions, no matter how tall the climb seemed at first?

No matter what your answer to the above question might be — and it could be a combination of many different things — your legacy is going to happen. More likely than not, it is going to revolve around what you do, and what you become. You might want to be known as a successful writer, musician, business owner or whatever it might be, but your legacy is going to be defined by your actions.

While you can shape your legacy in some fashion, you can’t tell people what they should think about you. People are going to remember you in their own image, not yours.

With that in mind, you need to start working toward your legacy today, not tomorrow, and certainly not the next week. If you want to be something, then you need to take the necessary steps to be it, and you need to start now. There will never be a perfect time to start, because that’s not how life works.

If you want something bad enough, you will make your goals and plans, and then go out and conquer success. That is how you can shape your legacy.


You are in control of your own destiny. Therefore, you are the only one to blame if you are working at a job you are not passionate about, or a field you had no desire to join.

What do you want your legacy to be? Do some searching, make up your goals, come up with a plan and then become the person you were meant — and want — to be.
