1. First, let me express my gratitude ...
Hi! Dolly here -- thanks from me and Creating Legacy for taking a few minutes to complete this quiz!
There are just 4 questions that follow - and no wrong answers! I hope you find the exercise thought-provoking as others have. And I'll look forward to reading your responses.
At CreatingLegacy.com my passion is to make the world a better place. May this work inspire you in some small way to do just that - to give back in the significant way that only you can from your own sense of joy and passion. I know some corner of the world will be better for it.
Feel free to pass along our newsletter containing this survey link to others (young and older, anywhere around the globe). Please contact me if you have questions or additional ideas to share.
With sincere appreciation,
Dolly M. Garlo, RN, JD, PCC
President Thrive!! Inc. and Creating Legacy
OKAY, LET'S GET STARTED:
|Check one ~ and/or comment below:|
|===> "Most Excellent, Thanks!!" - I have created a life of abundance in terms of my assets and finances, my family and other relationships, spiritually and with the work I have done in the world. I have sound financial and estate plans to leave significant assets for my family; and regularly contribute time and money to good causes. I am in the process of consciously developing sustainable projects that will benefit future generations including both my family and others and have advisors in place to assist with all that.|
|===> "Great!" - I have been successful in work and life - financially, in career/business, spiritually and with family and significant relationships. I contribute time and money to good causes and have financial and estate plans in place. I'm ready to begin making a bigger positive impact in the world by building something that gives back in an ongoing and positively meaningful way. How do I get started?|
|===> "Pretty Darn Well, I'd Say." - I am successful in my career and save and invest a good portion of my income. I have close relationships with family and try to be involved in my community. I periodically do some volunteer work or make a charitable contribution to an organization doing good things in the world. I'd like to consciously and consistently focus more on making a bigger positive difference in the world, but am not sure how. I need more information to figure that out.|
|===> "I'm On Track." -- My career, business and finances are proceeding smoothly, though I'm not yet where I'd like to be. My relationships with family, colleagues and others are generally solid (though a few still pose a challenge); and I occasionally contribute my time to good causes. Giving back and making a difference somehow are something I occasionally think about, but I have personal matters to handle before I could start.|
|===> "Building My Foundation." - I am just pulling it together financially and in terms of my relationships, but I don't participate much in community events or with local organizations. I feel pretty far from a sense of abundance and prosperity from which to give back much -- and I'd like to change that by at least contributing some of my time and effort to something.|
|===> "Not There Yet" - I'm building a career or business, but haven't really thought much about abundance, prosperity, the significance of truly close relationships, my community, financial freedom or my ability to create much of that in my life. But I'll consider how I might make a difference.|
