MADE Legends Edition - Page 3

We are all producers who have the power to create the lives we want to live. PUBLISHER’S LETTER ‘Becoming legendary’ is an actionpacked, high-pressure statement that only a few may add to their list of to-dos each morning before breakfast. Those who do will mentally set themselves up to create successful futures and impactful legacies. Kris D. Williams PUBLISHER Legends are the 1% of humanity who consciously think about and diligently work on how they will leave their mark on the world. Like the lyrics to “I Was Here” by Beyoncé, since we’re talking about legends, some come to this earth to contribute in such a way that will touch generations long after they leave. “I wanna leave my footprint on the sands of time, Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind. When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets, Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget. I was here.” What I have learned is that a snapshot of today is only one scene in the movie we call our lives. I often wonder “If I took a screenshot of my life, what would it tell me? If I were to play a timelapse over the past years, what value has been created?” We are all producers who have the power to create the lives we want to live. We have the ability to direct and carve the path we want to follow. It is also our responsibility to build unselfishly for those coming behind us. On the other hand, we don’t have to accept a plan that others have given us. It is our choice to create a blueprint for our legacy that gives us the option to intentionally plan for the success we desire. As it pertains to my time as an entrepreneur, I’ve learned there is no cookie cutter way to reaching our greatness. I do know that deciding to live a life of intention becomes meaningful and living a life of a meaning is how legends leave their legacy. Cheers, Kris
