For Legacy to grow, a man’s Mission must align with the Mission of the Groups in which he is a Member
For example, my Mission is to teach and lead Accelerating Men in order to reinvigorate Male Community Leadership. F3, an Organization of which I am a Member, has as its Mission to plant, serve and grow men’s small workout Groups in order to reinvigorate Male Community Leadership. My Mission not only aligns with the Mission of F3, but advances it. My Ultimate Purpose is the same as F3’s Articulated Purpose. My D2X is a necessary component of F3’s Task. Thus, when I am working within my D2X toward my Ultimate Purpose, I am also in service to the Articulated Purpose of F3.
If it were otherwise, in that my Mission was inconsistent or inimical to F3’s Mission, I would be working at cross-purposes with my Group and Legacy would be impossible.
To leave a Legacy, the Q lives and works with Purpose.

1 Samuel 16:7
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lordsees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

PORTRAIT OF A GODLY LEADER
LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart; He who does not backbite with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend; In whose eyes a vile person is despised, But he honors those who fear the Lord; He who swears to his own hurt and does not change; He who does not put out his money at usury, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.
What qualities should every leader possess? Psalm 15 furnishes us with a list of many of the necessary traits. David pictures a godly leader as one who:
Does not participate in gossip
Does not harm others
Speaks out against wrong
Honors others who walk in truth
Keeps their word even at personal cost
Isn’t greedy to gain at the expense of others
Is strong and stable
