WHAT does it take to be a legend? You don't have to be a super hero or conquer the world to become a legend. Many people do great things but are not necessarily noticed or recognised as being legends.

A legend should have qualities such as courage, strength, will power, wisdom, passion and a positive attitude. They should inspire people and set a good example for the next generations.

A legend might amaze us with their skill and tremendous talent and show socially acceptable and admirable behaviour.

It's about a person or a group of people who are good at something, have done great things to help others, have inspired others and embodied important social aspects. People who are considered legends are often looked upon for inspiration and growth and leave behind a legacy influenced by their deeds.
