They develop programmes that aid humanity. They developed the power inherent in one. They work to develop the people towards self realization. In addition, global personality live a life of legacy, thus becoming generational people.

Global personality develop families, communities, nations etc. Global personalities also develop organizations and institutions.

At death, the character and influence of any global personality lives on. Global personality builds values of integrity, perseverance, determination, honesty, humility, hard work etc; In addition, global persons build sound morale background which serves as foundation for future successes.

What really builds global personality is one’s various accomplishments attested to by the people; since such contributions are societal building blocks.

When those who have developed global values are no more; what they achieved lives with the people and the living makes life out of their accomplishments.

One’s personality is a creation of God. Thus the first principle towards building global life will be; walking in line with God’s power.

Prof. Olusola Onyewole, a former Vice Chancellor of the University of Agriculture Abeokuta, Ogun State Western Nigeria and a onetime Regional Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry for West Africa said The knowledge of God you have can determine the height that you can go in life. Praying and spending time with God will always assist one… If you learn to start your day early with God, you will find out that you will have a walk over, over other challenges”.

Other global achievers who have acknowledged the power of God while building their platforms in life: Abraham Lincoln, Zig Ziglar, Dr. Ben Carson, Pastor Oral Roberts, Bishop Dr. Chris E. Kwakpovwe (a Nigerian Bishop, Pharmacist, Author), Brian Tracy, Joyce Mayer, Dr. Ben Carson, Dr. Myles Munroe, Pastor Mike Murdock, Robert Schuller, Dr. Linus Okorie etc. Therefore, to build a global brand God is really involved.

Our Lord Jesus Christ is a global personality in view of His great contributions and accomplishments towards saving mankind. He demonstrated humility, love, sacrifice, perseverance in His relationship with the people. His legacies are speaking for Him in spite of the short period He lived on this planet earth.

People like George Washington, Sir, Winston Churchill, Dr. Nelson Mandela, etc, are people that are being celebrated because they impacted on the people great values of successes and accomplishments.

The founder of Hezekiah University, Umudi Nkwerre Imo State, Eastern Nigeria, Most Rev. Daddy Hezekiah is a global personality. His accomplishments in Christendom speak for it self. In addition, his role in founding this University will outlive him on this planet earth.

Factors that aid to build global people include: service rendering to humanity and society, political and economic sphere, scientific discovery, social contributions to society, vocational /professional development, authorship of books and writing of articles etc.

Chinedu Nsofor graduated from the University of Nigeria, Enugu State Eastern Nigeria. He is 28 years as at year 2018. Chinedu Nsofor set his vision of life and identified his goals to pursue as to build global platform. While at the University he developed his dream project- WORK WHILE IN SCHOOL; a programme designed to encourage our undergraduates to start early to think on their future plan of life. As at present, he has secured partnership in Nigeria. His vision has started creating impact in the Nigerian Society.

Walt Disney who developed Disney Land made contributions that is affecting generations. Disney like any global personality faced setbacks, oppositions, trials etc. Who could believe that WALT DISNEY- A man rejected by 301 Banks when he sorts for their help remained consistent until he became a celebrated personality through establishing Walt Disney Land.

Also William Wilberforce left behind great legacy on this planet earth thus becoming a global or generational personality. Wilberforce developed love and concern for others and subsequently set his affection upon a cause that would affect the destinies of millions of people all over the world. He initiated and championed the formation of a law to abolish slave trade. For 46 years he fought this battle and won. The whole world was made a better place and the entire society and man was given a better code conduct as a result of his campaign and victory. What a global life William Wilberforce lived in Great Britain; thus influencing society.

Becoming a global personality is a journey. It is a journey of vision, grace of God, pain, patience, determination, planned action. It is a journey for you students to now start building early in life.

Finally, in spite of life challenges and trials, global living is a life worth living since it impact greatly on the society. Those that have lived global and generational life are being emulated and celebrated. I enjoined all to build on his/her values as to work towards living a life to be celebrated.
