The Nobel Prize Goes To…

The Nobel Prize Goes To...

I knew that Alfred Nobel invented dynamite, and is responsible for initiating the Nobel Prizes. However, I did not know that the decision to dedicate his wealth in honoring those of peace came from reading his own obituary in the paper. His brother passed away, and the paper printed his obituary instead. The paper credited him as being known for a man who had made it possible to kill more people more quickly than anyone else who had ever lived.

This, of course, horrified him. This is not how he wanted to be remembered. He then decided to use his wealth for good, honoring those with outstanding achievements in literature, peace, economics, medicine and the science.

If your obituary were prematurely printed, would you be satisfied with how it would describe you and your contributions to the universe?

Would your personal image and style, along with your gifts and talents be well represented and talked about in an admirable way?

Would your family that remains be honored by what others would say about you both privately and publically?

If not, then today is a good day for a change. To find out how to incorporate a positive change in your life, check out my post on the Seven Universal Laws that exist in our lives every day, and how you can utilize them to help make a positive change in your life today!
