When I was researching Entrepreneurship, Success, Dreams and Interest.
I came across a word eulogy. I knew the meaning but couldn't actually relate to it in the underlined context.
And there was a talk to write your own eulogy..oops!?
I thought a lot about and was really amazed with the beauty of it. Let's take one bite at a time.
What do you understand by eulogy?
Eulogy is a kind of a speech written to a person just retired/dead.
Why one would write its own eulogy and how is it related to success?
That's a tricky question. Now let's look at a big picture.
When we talk about success, almost every person, every book or xyz will tell us to write down our dreams, plans or to do's.
Now, when you write your eulogy, it's not about a note written after your death, it's a note to be built over a span of years.
It'll let you look deeper within yourself, your aspirations & how you want yourself to be presented to the world. Imaging your death & a note to represent your doings, will hold your nerves, will encourage you to explore your most prominent goal of life.
So what you are waiting for, go write your eulogy, keep it private and keep updating it. It really has a power to motivate you over and over again. This can be used as a document of self motivation.
It's my own perception and experience. It is not related to any religion.
