The Power of Posterity


Tom Corley boats - crop

I must confess, I am driven in large part by my posterity. What is posterity? Posterity is what remains when you are gone. It is your legacy. It is the stories future generations will tell of you; the footprint you leave behind that lets the world know you lived a life of meaning.

I consistently post my Tip o’ the Morning to Ya with one hope in mind: that someone will find value in one of my morning tips which will change their life in such a way that they become motivated to pursue greatness and, in that greatness, they change the world. My legacy, therefore, is to be a catalyst for greatness, even if that greatness manifests itself in only one person.

We are all here for a reason. We are not here to simply live and die. We all have a purpose in life. Our purpose does not announce itself with trumpets and horns and ah ha moments. It creeps up on us. It nudges us in certain directions, ever so slightly. But we need to be ever vigilant in seeking it. We need to spend our lives in search for our individual purpose. For in that purpose lies our posterity. Find your purpose, pursue it and you will have lived a life of meaning that will live on, long after you die.
