I recently listened to a great eulogy for a man I hardly knew and came away inspired and motivated to be a better person. I was attending the funeral for the father of my husband’s close friend. I had only met this man a few times, but his life story, or at least the manner in which people close to him recounted it, had a tremendous impact on me. There is something about a funeral or celebration of life that always stirs up my thoughts.
There is nothing more uplifting than a great eulogy. They make you want to make your own life count for something in this universe, to make a positive and profound impact on the people around you. Talk about inspirational and motivational!
To make that impact I believe you should maintain a healthy balance between family, work, and fun. To earn the respect of your family, friends, and coworkers, you must respect and value them in return. It is also crucial to realize what is important in life. Appreciating and cherishing family, friends and the small things life has to offer instead of materialistic things is a step in the right direction.
Are you doing your best to make the world a better place? How will people remember you when you leave this world? Will yours be a great eulogy? Will it inspire and motivate the people gathered to hear it?
