How to Live Like a Legend: 5 Simple Steps to Create Your Future and Leave Your Mark… I am just sayyyin…
Have you ever wondered what your future self would look like? How he or she would feel about your life choices, achievements and impact? I did, and it changed everything for me. Let me tell you how.
One day, I stumbled upon an app that showed me how I would age over time. It was a fun experiment, but it also made me reflect on my life. I asked myself: Who is this older version of me? What has he done with his life? How has he helped others? This simple exercise made me more aware of the consequences of my daily decisions. It motivated me to live more intentionally and purposefully.
I want to share with you the 5 steps that I follow to create my future and leave my legacy. These steps help me stay focused, motivated and fulfilled. They can help you too, no matter what stage of life you are in.
Step 1: Set goals that matter. You probably know this already, but setting goals is crucial for your success. But not just any goals. You need goals that are aligned with your purpose, that inspire you to take action, that challenge you to grow and that allow you to measure your progress. That’s why I use the PACT method to set my goals. PACT stands for Purposeful, Actionable, Continuous and Trackable. When you make a PACT with yourself, you commit to pursuing goals that are meaningful, realistic, consistent and observable.
Step 2: Plan ahead. Having goals is not enough. You also need a plan to achieve them. A plan helps you break down your big goals into smaller steps that you can tackle one by one. A plan helps you avoid procrastination and overwhelm. A plan helps you stay on course and adjust when needed. So, don’t just wing it. Plan it.
Step 3: Invest in yourself. One of the best ways to create your future is to invest in your present. That means spending time and money on activities that improve your knowledge, skills and health. For example, you can read books, join masterminds or keynotes, or practice work/life balance. These activities will boost your productivity, creativity and well-being. They will also make you more valuable and attractive to others.
Step 4: Get that cash flow under control. Money may not buy happiness, but it can buy freedom and security. That’s why you need to manage your cash flow wisely. You need to save for future expenses, emergencies and retirement. You need to avoid unnecessary debt that can drag you down. You need to invest in assets that can generate passive income for you. When you have your cash flow under control, you have more options and opportunities in life.
Step 5: Relationships matter. No man is an island. We all need social connection and support. Even if you are an introvert like me, you still need to interact with others regularly. Science proves it. That’s why I make time every week to see my close friends. They are my biggest cheerleaders and confidants. They make me laugh and lift me up. They also challenge me and hold me accountable. They are part of my legacy.
