Legacy

August 17, 2010

Today at my 6 Degrees of Leadership meeting, the facilitator asked me what I hoped to leave as a legacy when it is my time to go.

I smiled. It’s something I have often thought about, so it was easy to answer. Easier to answer than to carry out, I fear.

I feel that my legacy will be some sort of contribution to sustainable living and community. I also feel that I will play a role in changing consciousness, which will be realized through motivational speaking and writing books. I feel that I am already doing both, but on a small, small scale. I really need to think much bigger if I am to make my mark on the world.

Last night I listened to a radio show discussing the legacy that Isaac Bonewits left. (The show is recorded here for those interested in listening to it. It’s two hours long, but for those who know the pagan community, it was a wonderful meeting of some of our pagan leaders in America.) Comparing my own desires with the legacy that he left, I realized I have a way to go.

I have a pretty clear vision of what my sustainable living community will look like, and I have a pretty good idea where I want to take it. I also have a sense that I will have the grass roots presence within the next two to three years.

I also have a pretty clear vision of the motivational speaking I hope to do, and what I hope to accomplish with it. That one seems to be more of a stretch in some ways, but is the dream that I spend more time working towards, one baby step at a time.

My NEXT big step is to get the first part of my e-book up on a landing page for people to purchase. That takes a chunk of time and a little bit of money to get the help I need to do it, but I intend to have it up by the end of this month.

In the meantime, I am planning my next two speaking engagements this week. One is on Friday afternoon, presenting the basic information from Connecting with your Personal Power to the Core Strength Leadership group. The other is Friday night, presenting information about financial freedom and relationship building to the Pagan community at the Magical Professions evening in the form of the SendOut Cards business opportunity. This will also involve scheduling my next round of workshops prior to Friday and making up flyers to hand out.

Saturday is another opportunity to market myself at the Club E meeting. Sue Malone of the Small Business Association will be a featured guest, and she is currently working on a business loan for Comic Zone, so I am very much looking forward to hanging out with her!

All of this contributes to the legacy I hope to leave someday, hopefully later rather than sooner.
