When people are forgotten, their significance in the world is absolute zero. Because they are no longer remembered, their actions have no importance to the society today. Based on this, Bill Gates would still be alive, because his influence on society is extremely tremendous and not going to diminish any time soon. Along with all the famous people in the past too.
If you are forgotten by society, this life of yours has been absolutely worthless, and you have just wasted it.
So, let me just put a question out there.
Do you want to be forgotten?
If you don’t want to be forgotten,
Have you done enough to be remembered?
And if you have not done enough,
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Go out there and do meaningful things, contribute to society, impact somebody’s life. You don’t have to be the President of the United States, or Miley Cyrus. All you need is to do something worth being on Wikipedia, something that makes people go, “Oh yes, I remember him.”
At the end of the day, we will all die, but hopefully, our legacy will carry on, and everyone will remember us for what we have done. So, go. Go and make a difference to someone, anyone. That way, you will never die.
