Sometimes you must stunt like a gentleman that you are.
I was born 29 years ago in a country full of very sane people who do not like complicated stuff.I have been blessed enough to meet some amazing people who have tolerated my dose of insanity. Well its not insanity as the real insanity but maybe my brain just works differently. And we all know that if you are in a group of standard people but only you hold different perspectives, chances are you will be termed insane. Good example is Wonderful Wonder Mkhutche. 😂 (Just a joke that is true).
I have been allowed to be different in a country where being unique is looked upon or judged as a lot of things.
There are things others expect from me but its been a pleasure to pursue those things I expect of me.
I have stepped out, I have won in some and lost in some. But in all, I have connected with a lot of amazing people and I have amassed a whole lot of experiences that will help me on this journey and compensate for all that I was not able to acquire as expected of a once bright kid and now a man of undeniable age and responsibilities.
Now Let's Go on A Journey and Create Experiences that help us create a nation we all want to be proud of and one that our kids and grandchildren will thank us for. Adding a year really changes nothing but sometimes, it has a psychological effect on how we conduct ourselves.
Under30 for me, is still time to lay a foundation stone to one's Legacy.
So if you are still in your twenties, what legacy are you building?
Its not a secret that most of us are so focused on our day-to-day that we never consider what we’ll leave behind to represent the fact that we were here.
Even the cavemen left paintings on the wall by firelight or whatever materials they found so that future generations could receive their message. (Go check out the paintings at Chongoni).
Why don’t we care about legacy anymore?
It’s really a shame, because legacy isn’t about ego as Daniel Dapiazza likes to put it.
It’s not about saying, “look at me..I’m the greatest!” When you get right down to it, legacy is not really about being remembered at all.
Legacy is important because it influences how you look at your day-to-day decisions.
When you’re busy creating a legacy, how you spend your time, how you treat people and how you treat yourself are all improved.
If we are actively creating a legacy with intent and purpose, we won’t accidentally spend our entire lives building something that we don’t care about, only to realize we’ve wasted thousands of days when it’s already too late. Take it from me, if I have time for your messages or any encounters with you, its because I know you are important and part of my legacy.
Remember: there is no prize at the end of the game for most hours spent in a cubicle. Go out there, take chances, laugh, cry, smile, respect others and most importantly impact real lives.
I would like to hear how I have been part of your story and how you think I can help you on this journey while I also learn from you.
