Death is often considered a boring topic yet it’s a necessary concern.
No one can escape death but everyone can work towards leaving a mark behind. I cannot forget a childhood song where the singer rebuked people for not leaving a mark behind that would remind earth of their existence.
“Even the lazy snail leaves a mark behind, wherever it passes…,” one song stanza stated.
Leaving a mark goes beyond the ordinary, it’s not about making millions neither is it perfecting one’s career. Leaving a mark is the way one lives every minute, every hour and every day of their life. You don’t want to be remembered as lazy bones or town gossiper!
People that live a mark are history makers; they are always researching on positive things that will keep their name alive, when they depart. What do you do, each hour of your life? What are your dreams anyway?
Leave a mark that counts: The starting point is adjusting your daily activities. Instead of playing a lot of video games, get involved in charity work, someone needs you.
The time is now: Stop with all those excuses that you are a minor. History makers start at an early stage. Ben Carlson, the first surgeon to successfully operate conjoined twins pursued his dream in his teenage days.
A mark is positive: “If I don’t attain fame in doing well, bad is the option,” this is a common saying. Legacies that count are positive.
Use your gifts: Everyone is gifted in a way. Intelligence, motivation, hard work, and listening are all gifts. Discover your gift and effectively use it.
Habits hinder progress: Take measures against negative addictions and habits. Good works are often ruined by simple weaknesses.
Everyone can: Regardless of height, intellect, disability, you too can inspire lives. Nick Vujicic, a Serbian Preacher and motivational speaker was born without arms or legs.
During his childhood, Nick accepted his disability and has already inspired thousands of people.
Every single routine should aim at leaving a mark that will keep your name alive.
