Do nothing for prosperity's sake. Rather, do everything you have to do for the sake of the posterity (all future generations ahead). Because, anything done for prosperity's sake does not last perpetually most times or rather it is not often impactful. But interestingly, whatever that is done for posterity's sake is ever impactful and will surely last perpetually. I mean, anything done for the sake of the posterity will surely be remembered and celebrated globally throughout the future generations ahead. Thus, do you have the gift of writing? If yes, then never write and publish for prosperity's sake. Instead, endeavour to write and publish for posterity. Note: anything written and published for posterity's sake will surely be read throughout the future generations ahead. In fact, I (personally) have been writing and publishing for posterity, I'm still writing and publishing for posterity and I will for life write and publish for posterity. Now, that's why the posterity in question will surely and eventually remember me and celebrate me too perpetually as a Great man, Writer, Motivator, Inspirator and Author by virtue of my thought-provoking quotes, insights, motivations, inspirations and my upcoming books. Oh! yes, my thought-provoking quotes, insights, motivations, inspirations and my upcoming books will surely be read, assimilated, shared, celebrated or criticized throughout the posterity ahead (all future generations) i.e. ad infinitum (endlessly, forever, never endingly). You can bet your bottom dollar. ~Emeasoba George
