You can pick up any history book and count how many names are actually remember by history. A few thousand, maybe. That’s a few thousand people who are remembered out of the billions of people who ever lived. What kind of percentage is that? Probably not very high.
You can read the history books and find a handful of doctors and lawyers. A few scientists who cured diseases. Industrialists, like Ford, JP Morgan and Rockefeller are there. You soon will see names like Gates, Jobs and Zuckerburg, in the history books, as well. These are the titans in their chosen fields.
There are lots of people who are anonymous, to most of us. They are the people who are building a legacy for their families. The small business owners, the local doctors and the like.
Most people don’t mind living a life of anonymity. They relish their anonymity. They bathe in it.
Okay, so maybe you’re not ever going to be a person who is remembered by history and that’s okay. Not many people are that notable. Let me ask you this. Will you be remembered by your family, your grand kids and great grand kids? Do you want to be remembered?
Can you tell me anything about your great grandparents? Do you even know their names? Is that what you want for your life? Not that living a life of relative anonymity is bad, most of us do just that, but wouldn’t it be great to live a life that is remembered?
Do you want to make a legacy for yourself and your family? Do you want your grandchildren and great grandchildren to be able to tell people who you are/were?
Isn’t it time to consider standing up and becoming the person you were meant to be? Now maybe you won’t become the next Bill Gates or Warren Buffet. Maybe that’s not even what you want. You should know that there are millions of people who build legacies and are never remembered by anyone other than their families.
It’s a daunting thought to consider sticking your head above the crowd. Your friends and your family will tell you that you can’t do it. That you will fail at whatever you choose to do, but it can be done. If you find someone who will take you under their wing and help you navigate the minefields that are out there in the business world.
Don’t live your life in relative anonymity! Be somebody! It’s time to prove everyone wrong.
