What does Outlive Yourself mean to you?

 Selflessness. We aren't remembered for what we have but for how we impact the lives of others. Our legacy lives through good deeds and small acts of kindness rather than the size of our house or the price of our car. That is what it truly means to outlive yourself and pass on your legacy for generations.

What does Outlive Yourself mean to you?

When I think about outliving myself I imagine others being able to flourish because of my life's work. I hope to one day have played a key role in bringing an end to poverty and food insecurity, much like Norman Borlaug. Through this work, the people I hope to save would be able to 'Outlive' me and possibly be the world's next Albert Einstein or Vincent Van Gogh.

Grace Salsido is a graduate of Goleta High School from Goleta, California. She will be attending Azusa Pacific University in the Fall. 
What does Outlive Yourself mean to you? 
To "outlive yourself" to me means, simply to enjoy all the beautiful things life has to offer.  Outliving oneself I believe to be living through the experiences of life, whether they are positive or negative. And after living through an experience and coming out of it as a better person.

Matthew Dicken is a graduate of Coppell High School in Coppell, Texas. He will be attending Texas A&M in the Fall.   
 
What does Outlive Yourself mean to you?
To me, outliving yourself means you become more involved in the lives around you instead of just living your own life. We should all attempt to make the lives of the people around us better and leave a lasting impact on every person we meet. By working towards the betterment of others we outlive our life and positively influence others to outlive their lives, eventually helping everyone around the globe. By helping others and outliving yourself you can leave a long lasting impact that can help millions even after we’re gone.

What does Outlive Yourself mean to you?
“Outlive yourself” resonates with me because I strongly believe one should live outside of yourself, your bubble, and your comfort zone; and create positive lasting change in whatever circumstances you find yourself.
