What's Your Legacy
What is a legacy? I could quote a dictionary definition, but I will choose to give my own personal answer. To me, a legacy is something that has left a positive or negative impact on society. A legacy lasts many lifetimes. Just look at all the different famous icons that fill our history books; Shakespeare, Sir Isaac Newton, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and my savior Jesus Christ. They have all made positive imprints on the world we live in today.
Of course there are negative legacies as well. Not every well-known figure of our history were positive. Some people did such harm, that their legacies will be know till the end of age. Some examples of negative legacies are Hitler’s holocaust, Andrew Jackson’s “Trail of Tears,” or Shoeless Joe Jackson’s throwing of the 1919 World Series against the Cincinnati Redlegs. Legacies, good or bad, are left by our everyday actions.
At Brunner’s Lawn and Service, ltd, we want to leave a lasting legacy through our client’s properties, our constant dedication to community, and by hiring team members who are worth more than they are given credit for. We care about people and how they are treated. Relationships are what leave a lasting memory in the hearts of those that Brunner’s serves. When Josh and I (Gary) are no longer walking this Earth, we want people to know that we cared. I promise, we care about our clients and team as if they are extended family.
Sit back and analyze your life. Do you volunteer, are you raising children, do you employ others? Think about the impact you make on society. If the impact is negative, change. We all have time to turn the boat around. If you are doing wonderful and positive things, do more. We can always improve. We can all make a difference in the world we live in. It’s our turn to receive the baton from our parents and create something special for our children. Create your legacy. Don’t wait, do it today.
