What do you want to be remembered for?

By | September 3, 2015
Life gets really unfair at times. Robs you of what you deserve and what you are destined. Brings you down each second, trying to show you that what ever you do, it has the upper hand. It teaches you to cry, loose confidence and hurt yourself. This is the reality of life.
What do you at these times? Give up? The easy answer is “What ever is destined, it will happen” and this is correct. What ever is destined, will definitely happen. But, if you take a moment and question yourself, the path you have taken, the decisions you have made, all of these will give you different answers.
What did Steve Jobs do when he got fired from his own company? What did Richard Branson do when he had to sell his successfully running music business to start Virgin Airlines and when British Airways was beating him top to bottom? Did they give up? If they did, today, I will not be typing on a MacBook or think of flying in Virgin Atlantic.
Simple Question we need to ask ourself is “What do I want to be remembered for?” This is what Dr. APJ Kalam asked himself. When someone asked him this question, they were looking forward to hearing – Scientist, Statesman etc. But, Dr. Kalam was quick to respond “Teacher”.
Fortunate for him, Dr. Kalam breathed his last when he was teaching and we remember him as a true Thought Leader who had his Theatre of Action perfectly in place.
So, what do you want to be remembered for?
