Humans live. Humans die. Sometimes, long dead humans will always be remembered. Why? What can we do to be remembered by the world at large when we’re dead? How can classifying humans by actions aid us to know whether we’ll be remembered (after death) for our actions? Read this article
The purpose of this article isn’t to put fear into the mind of people but rather, to encourage everyone (especially young people) into taking the right steps in life.
Classifying humans by the outcome of their actions
There may be many words used to classify humans but in this article, I’ll use just four words:
- Trend makers
- Follower of pacesetters
- Follower of trend makers
Lets examine each of the aforementioned words
Jesus, Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin and many others have at least something in common: they did something and they’re remembered for it. Pacesetters may be ridiculed at the present because what they’re doing is new and somewhat weird but they’ll definitely be remembered in the future.

Yomi casual, Davido, Linda Ikeji and many others are popular now cause of what they offer. Truth be told: if they stop what they’re doing now, they’ll be forgotten in time. Trend makers are very popular presently cause of their actions but in the future, very few will be remembered cause by then they may be viewed as off-trend.
Followers of pace setters
These people, just like pace setters, would do what’ll be remembered in the future. Unlike pacesetters, they may not be remembered by name but surely their works would be remembered. Like Dalton’s atomic theory has some postulations. These postulations are known but they still bear the name of Dalton’s atomic theory even though Dalton was not the one who wrote them.
Followers of trend makers
These people are the ones who are known with trends. Followers of trend makers are known to always have the latest song or wear the latest style in fashion or know the latest gist. In summary, they are trendy while the people they follow are trending. Most youths fall in this category
Of the above four categories, just one is negative but yet it is the most populous. Why is this so? ‘Followers of trend makers’ is populous because it appears the most enjoying. The truth is that these people will either keep up with the trend or die with it. I advise every youth to do the right thing.
