In the latest years... It's all in what you said. they haven't written history. they will be forgotten in another 50 or so years.
If you want to make history start up a project that will endure when you're gone. A foundation maybe, or start a campaign to change an important law.
but i must say that to change history you need to do something that will cost you lot's of pain and difficulty to achieve because it's generally something very big. you have to outshine millions of people to be recognized today, think of what you have to do to have recognition left in a 100 years!
I don't think that wanting to change history is a great enough motivation to actually be able to do it. You have to change the world in a way that you really want it to change in. Something that comes straight from the heart.
Like mother Theresa or Hitler to name two opposites. They really wanted something and worked all their lives on what they thought the most important things to them and then they wrote history.
An idea of just wanting to change the world is not enough, you have to know what you want to change and dedicate your life to do it.
Or you're life has to be dedicated by circumstance, like when a war breaks out and you happen to become a leader by "accident". But I shouldn't wait for that.
