What would you do to make a difference if you were a multi-millionaire right now?

If you had a lot of financial resources to tap on, how would you spend or invest your millions to make a positive change in the world that will leave a lasting legacy of hope for others?

This is a good exercise even if you are not financially rich yet to keep you motivated to reach your goals in life.

    Nov 8 2012: You don't need money to leave a legacy. You dont need be a mutil- millionaire to make a difference.

    What you need to do is find people that believes what you believe in.

    Look at Martin Luther King. The guy wasn't rich.

    He lived what he had. It all didn't start from money, but his visions.

    He had supporters that believes what he believed in.

    " I have a dream....."

    "I believe......."
