How you are going to be remembered by your family after your exit from this world?
This is not a question being asked flippantly. Firstly, as we came into being on this Planet Earth our countdown to exit had begun. The exit is immanent; no excuses will do and no alternatives exist. Nor is there any choice to decide time, place and people around you while making your final exit.
What is in our control however is how we wish to be remembered by others at the place of work, in our family and by society at large. It all boils down to what type of existence we led by our style of living as we engaged ourselves in pursuit of material progress.
Planet Earth has more than 6000millioninhabitants. Most exited in the past, some still exiting and some set to do tomorrow. The stay is temporary and the process of exiting is remorselessly a continuous one.
Can you make a place and space for yourself before your exit is the essence of LEAD TO WIN OVER series.
How my family will recall my absence; my office colleagues for my contribution; my society or nation to my permanent absence is a thought that needs to serve as a self-correction course.
I do not believe dying is a contradiction in term to the myriad evolutions of life. Life keeps changing throughout its evolution. Dying therefore has to be a process that enables evolution of life. Death matters not when you are marking your existence with life, a life of good deeds and noble thoughts. Yet when time for exit lies somewhere ahead you need to market in the hearts of people around, in the family and at work place.Why not make a systematic exit, evolve a plan to show to people around you what a benefactor you had been while you lived on this planet?
You could be a symbol of love or peace or courage or charity. You could be an example of punctuality. You could be beacon of kindness or one who showed the power to meet challenges and path of leadership.
You can begin a new fruitful life within the experiences of your past when you exit this planet and there is nothing so sweet as to see others cherishing your fond memories.
