Today an interesting event occurred as I attempted to achieve gains through the physical pain I willingly inflict on my body at my local gym. Today happened to be the day most dreaded, despised, and often disregarded by most gym connoisseurs. It was leg day! After completing my allotment of required repetitions on the leg press machine, my eyes were drawn to the bench after I stood up. Immediately plastered on the bench was the outline of my body. The image was a clear as an individual’s bulbus oculi after the application of Visine. This Rembrandt-esq piece was designed by the artistic medium excreted by the sudoriparous glands of the skin known as perspiration. As I stood there and glanced (for a total of three seconds due to evaporation) at my doppelgänger, an interesting thought detonated in my cerebellum.
What imprint do I leave on others? Do those I interact with leave with an imprint of my true character? Do I even leave an imprint at all?
“Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.” – Orison Swett Marden
Each day we are blessed with opportunities to leave an ineffaceable mark on someone’s life. We can use our words to imprint life, kindness, encouragement, and positivity in the minds of each person we encounter.
Don’t leave behind an imprint that will evaporate within three seconds!
