"What's the essence of this world?"
"Why will I just get rich just to leave everything behind?"
"Gosh! This life is just rubbish, we will just waste time and just die"
All these and others are what you hear people say. I want to tell you that all these are utterances of a shallow mind.
Like I read in a book "this life is a preparation for the next".
Yes we die and leave all the wealth and other treasures we've accumulated. Yes we will take nothing when we die, but people who think that they will die and leave everything behind, and tag this world meaningless are being selfish.
Why do you think some people have died and are not remembered and others are remembered? What you need to know is that to make this life meaningful, make it better for this generation and hundreds of generations to come. When you think about making an impact, you don't see this life as meaningless.
When you accumulate wealth, do so to impact lives not just to live robustly and die.
Live to be remembered.
“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.”
― Jackie Robinson
“With my career I want to either make something or make an impact. Writers both. make something, and make an impact.”
― Jarod Kintz, This Book Has No Title.
“You are here to make a difference, to either improve the world or worsen it. And whether or not you consciously choose to, you will accomplish one or the other.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich.
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
