A Midlife crisis is described as a psychological crisis brought by events that highlight a person's growing age, inevitable mortality, and possible lack of accomplishments in life.
I believe this phenomenon should be referred to as Midlife Awakening.
It is an awakening brought by the growing wisdom and the realisation that materialistic possessions bring neither fulfilment nor measure one’s worth. Faced with the inevitable mortality, a person begins to evaluate their accomplishments in life. Looking for their footprints in human history.
The truth is, we ALL leave footprints behind from the moment of our conception to way beyond our lifetime. Some are so minute that they are hardly realised; others are larger than life and continue to be witnessed for millennia.
The question shouldn’t be, “Has a footprint has been left behind?”
The question should be, “How big a footprint has been left behind?”
Make your footprint count.
Don’t wait for your midlife awakening before evaluating your trail. The sooner you begin, the more established your trail will become.
I am working towards enlarging my footprint with SAM (SmarterApproach® Methodology), my unique signature trail.
What footprint are you leaving behind?
