Do You Have to Break the Internet to Claim Your Space in the World?

The Internet is Broken!

The Internet is Broken!

“Break the Internet” the caption reads. A voluptuous Kim Kardashian beckons to me with a serious weapon from her feminine arsenal. Alas, it is all wasted on me. Even if she is attractive and has a much bigger … personality than most, I just don’t get why it seems that so many people spend their time soaking up and making space in their lives for so much of the K-West craze and other celebrity-life (over) coverage as possible. Where is the return on that investment? In fact, this brings me to another question altogether: Do you have to break the internet to claim your space, make a difference and leave a legacy in the world?

I am pretty sure the answer is no. Here is are five simple steps for claiming your space and building a legacy life without breaking anything; you don’t even need the internet to do it!

Five Steps to Help You a Live a Legacy-Life that Makes an Impact Now:

1. Identify your core values (what is most important to you) today.
2. Align your goals and actions to your core values so you can start making the difference and the impact you were meant to make in this world.
3. Before you commit to any new goal, before you take any action, run it through the filter of your core values and you will always be on the right path.
4. Ask yourself what you want people to say about you at your funeral and then decide what has to happen for that eulogy to manifest itself when the time comes.
5. Start making a difference right where you are, right now. If you have been waiting for the right sign, say like, breaking the internet, cut it out and take action.
In the words of one of my favorite quotes by Napolean Hill, “Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.”

    Love your list Denise! Most people seem to wonder what their core values are (was hard for me to know when I started to take my dream serious). When we start NOW we will figure out by doing anyway. We won’t never by just thinking about it. Thanks for your inspiration!

    • Thank you, Anja! It’s true that we often don’t think about what our core values really are, we often just carry on with ideas that have been passed on to us from our environment and the rest just happens. This is what leads to so much misalignment and dissatisfaction in our lives.

      I appreciate your comments!

    Denise – great reminder to be in touch with our values and act from them! The more busyness in life the more we need reminders like this.

  3. Thank you, Patrice! I appreciate your comments.

    Great list, Denise. I agree with Anja. Defining one’s core values is super important and tough at the same time.
    It takes some time, work and thinking. But it is worth the effort. 🙂
    I always ask myself what I’ll regret on my death-bed…
    Love, Andrea

    Denise, I always love seeing your blog in my Inbox, and this is a real gem! I love #4! It speaks to me at this time of year especially. These weeks before a big school break and big holiday, I feel like “Just get through this day” and yeah, that’s one way to look at it, but then one day I’ll say it for the last time, right? I will meditate on #4 at this busy time, and try to take it down a notch. Very little matters in the end. Thanks for the clue to slow down. xx angela

    • Thank you so much, Angela! I hope you agree that as time goes on we develop a keener sense of what really matters. Actually, we return to what we knew as small children; now, this moment, this run across the park, this game that I don’t want to stop playing, this friend that I want to stay with just a little longer, that is what matters. Wishing you joy and peace today!
