Out of all of the inspirational stories that individuals throughout history have read or heard about, the one of Nelson Mandela is – by far – one of the absolute favorites. Born in the year of 1918 in South Africa, Mandela was a person that played an active role in the anti-apartheid movement when he was in his 20s. In the 1940s, he became part of the National Congress in Africa.
For a couple of decades following this union, he headed a campaign that promoted a peaceful defiance against the government in South Africa and the extremely racist policies associated with that government. For his efforts to dismantle Africa’s apartheid system, Mandela was awarded in the year of 1993 with the Nobel Peace Prize. Despite the opposition that he faced throughout his life, he never lost hope or sight of his goals. He once said:
“It Always Seems Impossible Until it’s Done” – Nelson Mandela
Everything Mandela worked for and accomplished in his lifetime seemed absolutely impossible; yet, he had an unwavering persistence that saw him through to complete that which he set out to do. Mandela left a legacy. His work was so cherished and admired by others that his birthday was officially named, “Mandela Day”. On this day, individuals worldwide remember his contribution to global peace, and his lifelong work.
Though our goals, our dreams, and our ambitions may seem absolutely impossible, it is imperative that we remember Mandela’s words. Though it seems impossible, you must persist. When you persist, you will accomplish all that you set out to do. It is then that you will see that possibility lies in the impossible. Like Mandela, you must retain your commitment to achieving the impossible. You must retain this commitment throughout your entire lifetime. Upon doing so, you, too, will leave a legacy!
