Usually, the topic ‘death” is never preferred as a basic idea for discussion among humans but we’re not here to discuss death rather we are going to be looking at certain things that as a human, it is very important you do before you die here on planet earth.
We’ve seen or heard about people live, make something out of their lives, create legacies and more but today, they are no more. What does this tell you? Steps they took while alive has helped them to still live among the living because of their works while alive but the question is, how were they able to achieve that?
Let’s take a look at some things you’ll need to do before to be able leave a legacy before you die.
1. Discover who you are:
Many people just pass through life not discovering who they really are and by that, fail to make their own customized impact on mankind while alive. You can’t be of impact on others around you much if you don’t know who you really are. Start today to take a long walk into a deliberate self discovery exercise. Get a mentor in a field of interest if you can.
2. Use your potentials/Skills:
There is no human without a special gift which we a times refer to as ‘talent’. There is always a potential in you that needs expression. It is the content in you when expressed that creates your legacy on earth. Even while you are gone, it lives on.
People like Nelson Mandela can never be forgotten as far as African history is concerned. Michael Jackson’s name still sparks a light in the world of music each time it is mentioned. All these men are all dead and gone but their legacies still lives on because they took steps to using their potentials. So, what you are waiting for?
3. Reach out and help someone up:
If you have attained some height in your field of discipline, help someone up too. It is very important we learn to raise pillars like ourselves in any field of endeavour because this is how systems are sustained for effectiveness in all fields for centuries.
When you raise others up, you are successful. Success is not when you’ve acquired the most expensive cars, houses and clothes in the world but rather , it is being able to start up a thing, finish it with results to show, then hand over the same concept to others to trade with for life. Before you die, try this as much times as possible.
So, which of these have you not done? Will you take steps today while you may? Before you die, the world needs the potentials inside of you big time. Will you be stingy with it?
