The sense of contribution


The era of modernity we find ourselves resulted as a conglomerate of contributions of individuals who had lived. Each of this individuals gave a quota of their own endeavours which stemed from their unique abilities to identify, define and put into practice their God given innate talents. Without these contributions, the world will never grow and would have been in a stand still position. Most of them had courage despite all odds to achieve their aim. They had this sense of contribution which created a pace for their success.

Many people today just want to remain where they are. They are just satisfied with acquired knowledge, skills, education without thinking of ways to add value or to expand knowledge of the pre-existing ideas and ways of life. The two brothers who invented the airplane, took it upon themselves and saw the need for humans to be transported in a quicker and faster way breaking the barrier of land scape, seas, mountains etc. Though their model of aircraft may not still be in existence, their invention was quite remarkable because none had ever achieve such success. The society would have been brought to a halt, if after such inventions, no work was done. They contributed their quota by bringing the initiative of inventing a craft that can fly in the sky while others built on the foundation they had laid making transportation a lot easier and faster.

As humans, we must have that sense of contribution and once we recognise that we are obligated to contribute as others have contributed, we force our minds to go wild searching for that unique potential which may be detected earlier or later on in life. Any human who does not want to contribute to humanity is the greedy fellow. He is termed as a child that inherited his father’s property and feels fulfilled with them. He does not seem to make any effort to create his own wealth so that others too will feel His impact. No legacy to leave behind.  But the wise fellow will use what has been created on ground to make more wealth. By doing this, he has been able to contribute and create wealth which will be passed on to his generation. The body called science is full of contributions which has been for thousands of years. I want you to imagine how it would have looked  like if these contributors never did anything. They recognised a problem, saw the need of the people and visualise how this will be of great aid to humanity. Today, we celebrate them because of the contributions they made. Great entrepreneurs today have this awesome potential of contributing to the society. They solve problem and convert solutions to source of wealth.

When people complain about racism I just shake my head and say ‘‘you have not offered anything’’. If you really have something uniquely different to offer, you will be honoured for who you are. The masses are not going to look at your skin colour, deformities, or physical appearance in fact, they will be looking at you from your point of contribution. Sometimes even your flaws are counted as perfect. Unique contribution breaks the chains of racism, it set you at liberty to talk to any man regardless of his status, colour or race. People have been neglected, stigmatised and persecuted all because of their race but, when they made remarkable contributions to humanity, their stories changed from public disgrace to fame. People want to hear from them, they want to tap knowledge and wisdom from their success. The world have forgotten about their race, and now they are being celebrated because they made an outstanding contribution. These famous men or women had many times been challenged and they lived up to the challenge in fact those challenges help to strengthen their feeble knees. They were not ready to retreat or give up.

We are living in an era where nearly everything is on the bed of roses. Many activities that took long period of time, can now be done in a split of seconds. Under normal circumstance, this  is supposed to speed up our creative abilities and facilitate our progress but the reverse is the case. People have become so relax, lazy and without purpose, waiting to be spoon fed by the latest inventions or discovery. Have you ever sat to ask yourself “Why can I not invent or discover something that will be of help to the society?” The clothes we wear, the food we eat, the electricity we enjoy and do all electronic operation, the improved health care system, the economy, the cutting edge technology, a few but to mention were all done by persons or group of person who saw the need for better living.

As humans begin to evolve, the population increased with multiplicity of wants.  In order for these humans to adapt to these conditions before them, they had to develop ways to improve their living standard. Old paths were no longer suitable for their generation so they had to work hard to see that they survived and not just surviving that they make living more convenient. They were led by their instinct, they saw possibilities of coming out with something that will be useful and beneficial to mankind. They may have had mates who had greater opportunities than them but could not utilized them. They were driven by their passion and powered by their curiosity to make sure they lived a happier and successful life. There are many factors to be considered when looking at how these individuals achieved success. These include curiosity, passion, mindset, determination, focus and persistency.
