The Legacy You Leave

How often we think, we have to do something big, achieve something great in order to leave a legacy, while I was reading, this article, I felt inspired and true, every thing mentioned below has to do something with our own attitude and ourselves, I am looking at my life to see what else can I do to make this world a better place, and if there is anything to do let me do it now, for I shall not pass this way again.
The Legacy You Leave
All you will leave behind for the world to remember is
Your Legacy, so ask yourself:
Will you have earned the respect of your peers and the admiration of your critics?
Will you have acted humbly at the peak of success and graceful in the face of defeat?
Will you have kept your childlike wonder and reveled in the beauty of the world and the small miracles that each day brought?
Will you be remembered for how often you laughed and brought smiles to the hearts of others?
Will small children and the elderly have been overjoyed to be around you?
Will others have trusted you with their inner most secrets?
Will you have forgiven and offered heartfelt apology?
Will you have looked for the very best, and done your utmost to build worth, in others?
Will you have fed a hungry child or clothed a naked man or given hope to a stranger in dire need?
Will you have left this world a better place by the life you have lived?
What kind of Legacy will you leave?
