From “The Mask of Masculinity: How Men Can Embrace Vulnerability, Create Strong Relationships, and Live Their Fullest Lives” by Lewis Howes:
On your deathbed, it comes down to two things:
1. All of life is about relationships. The questions you ask at the end of your life aren’t about awards, achievement, or applause. They’re about relationships–what kind of husband was I? What kind of father? What kind of son? What kind of friend?
2. At the end of your life, you want to be able to look back and know that you made a difference–that you left some kind of mark, some kind of imprint, that you were here. All of us want to leave some kind of legacy behind.
Yeah…I agree…that pretty much sums it up.
