As you move forward with your life and attempt to meet your destiny, what are you leaving behind? I know the first reaction is to say something about how you helped people, made friends, and earned some achievements. How about a new way of looking at it? If our current lives were perfect, we wouldn’t need to change anything. We wouldn’t need to grow or pursue goals.
I want to become someone so recognizably different that none of my past will even be remembered. I want to forge ahead with so much determination and success that all of my previous achievements will simply not measure up anymore. I am going to blaze forward into the future with an intensity so fierce that when you look back on my life, all you’re going to see is the ashes I left behind.
