Do you want history to remember you? I believe that deep down we all have that desire. We truly do want to change the world and we want to be remembered. We want to leave a legacy and to “put a dent in the universe,” as Steve Jobs so famously said when he started Apple. What does being a history maker look like? This:
This is one of the most powerful pictures I have ever seen.
It’s of a man who changed the world.
It’s of a man who will be remembered throughout history. Who left a dent in the universe.
Who will be your legacy?
If you look closely, between Mandela’s arm and the child’s, is what you want others to say about you one day:
Tata (Mandela’s nickname in South Africa meaning “father”), we belong to you and we will be your Legacy.
Who will be your legacy? Whose life will you change?
It can be your children. It can be your nieces and nephews. It can be your students. It can be millions of people you’ve never met.
That is the power you have inside of you. World changing power. History making power.
That is the power you probably forgot you have. It was beaten out of you, stolen from you, or hidden under layers of “play it safe.” It’s been trampled on by haters, steered off track by critics, and lost in the daily grind.
It’s time to find that power again. It’s still there. It may be hidden, stolen, scarred, weakened, or even lost, but it is still there. It’s always been there.
You are essential to this world (or else, why would you be here?) You are essential to more people than you’ve ever known or imagined.
My name is Matt McWilliams and I am a World Changer (just like you).
Have you ever thought of yourself as a world-changer?
Have you ever truly believed that you are essential to this world?
Have you ever acknowledged the incredible power with which you were born?
What is stopping you?
P.S. Stay tuned tomorrow for an exciting announcement!
