Fingerprints. They prove who you are, and more.
They are the identification you never lose, formed before you were born.
Did you know:
- No two prints are alike. This is true even for identical twins!
- The prints you leave behind are oil-based, so some materials don’t retain our prints. Mirrors do a great job, but textiles do not.
- Koala bears have fingerprints that look almost identical to human fingerprints.
- The first legal conviction of someone based on a fingerprint in the US was in 1910.
Fingerprints are often used to gather evidence – to link an action with a unique person. To identify when someone has been somewhere, perhaps touching something they shouldn’t have.
But on a positive note, where do you actually want to leave your fingerprints? What identity do you want to hold in the minds of your family and friends?
We like to call these future-minded, positive fingerprints ‘Life Prints’.
Usually, people plan to leave their Life Prints in three places:
- People they care about
- Causes that are important to them
- Institutions that mean the most to them.
Life Prints are positive “evidence” that you leave behind, so that when you are gone, it’s clear who and what you cared about.
These prints are a part of your impact.
If you were asked: “Did your life matter, did it count, and did you make a difference?” We’re guessing you would respond with a resounding “Yes!”
Leaving behind positive Life Prints mean your loved ones and others will remember you for the things that mattered most.
Your plan should include provisions that multiply your Life Prints on the people, causes, and institutions you care about deeply.
