What is the big deal about this Legacy thing?
The events of the past few days have left me pondering on the word, legacy: various activities have been going on to celebrate and honour the memory of the late Afrobeat king, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. I had the privilege to experience some of the activities put together to commemorate this year’s Felabration; the official unveiling of the Liberation statue at Allen Roundabout, Ikeja and the musical concert at the African Shrine…
One thing that keeps resonating in my heart is the word-Legacy. No doubt, Fela’s children have done well in sustaining their father’s legacy.
No one lives forever. Every human being has a ‘departure date’: the earlier we begin to live our lives intentionally, the better. The reason is that, someday, our ‘contract’ on earth will expire. When that contract expires, what will be left behind? Whatever is left behind is your legacy; I am not talking about your material possessions, but the kind picture that would be formed in the imagination of people once your name is mentioned.
My dear friend, riches is good but a good name is better that riches. However, the good news is, one can have both; riches and a good name. Having both means; being intentional about life, and living with a sense of mission. Have a life-term mission. Set goals and be committed to them.
As you set out this week, make up your mind to add value to humanity. Let your life be an inspiration. Don’t be a catalyst of a man’s downfall. Aid the fulfilment of someone’s dream. Whatever you do, make sure you make, at least, one person happy daily. It is possible. Have a productive week.
