​How Would You Like to Be Remembered !

How Would You Like to Be Remembered


About a hundred years ago, a man looked at the morning newspaper and to his surprise and horror, read his name in the obituary column. The newspapers had reported the death of the wrong person by mistake.  


His first response was shock. Am I here or there? When he regained his composure,his second thought was to find out what people had said about him. The obituary read, Dynamite King Dies. And also He was the merchant of death. This man was the inventor of dynamite and when he read the words merchant of death, he asked himself a question, Is this how I am going to be remembered?


He got in touch with his feelings and decided that this was not the way he wanted to be remembered. 


From that day on, he started working toward peace. His name was Alfred Nobel and he is remembered today by the great Nobel Prize. Just as Alfred Nobel got in touch with his feelings and redefined his values, We should step back and do the same.


What is your legacy?

How would you like to be remembered?

Will you be spoken well of?

Will you be remembered with love and respect?

Will you be missed?

Never Judge Anyone Before Knowing the Situation


Doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes & went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor.


On seeing him, the dad yelled:

“Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have any sense of responsibility?”


The doctor smiled & said:

“I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital & I came as fast as I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”


“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily


The doctor smiled again & replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Book “From dust we came & to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go & intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace”


“Giving advises when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured the father.


The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy,

“Thank goodness!, your son is saved!” And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any questions, ask the nurse!!”


“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.


The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was at the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”

2) A ‘Greater Purpose’

Take some time to introspect: are you spending every waking hour chasing the big bucks, or was there a more meaningful reason why you chose this line of work? According to Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a motivational theory in psychology, people are motivated to achieve needs in a certain order
– before one can get to the top of the pyramid, where one can meet one’s self-actualisation needs, one must feel a sense of accomplishment.

Find ways to engage with the community and give back to society.

This will help you feel fulfilled, which in turn, will fuel your ambition.
