I reached the pinnacle of #success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is the epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, my wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on my bed and recalling my life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in have paled, and become meaningless in the face of my death.

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you, but you cannot have someone bear your sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found or replaced. But there is one thing that can never be found when it’s lost. Life.

Whichever stage in life you’re in right now, with time, you will face the day when the curtain falls.

Treasure love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.

Treat yourself well and cherish others. As we grow older, and hopefully wiser, we realize that a $3000 or a $30 watch both tell the same time.

You will realize that your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.

Whether you fly first class or economy, if the plane goes down—you go down with it.

Therefore, I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, sing with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth, that is true happiness.

Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy.

So when they grow up they will know the value of things and not the price.

Eat your food as your medicine, otherwise, you have to eat medicine as your food.

The One who loves you will never leave you for another because, even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find a reason to hold on.

There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die.

In between, you have to manage.

The six best doctors in the world are sunlight, rest, exercise, diet, self-confidence, and friends. Maintain them in all stages and enjoy a healthy life.

 

Steve Jobs Quote

Author:

These words are often attributed to Steve Jobs as something he said while he knew that he was dying of terminal illness.

Whether these are his words or not, they really are a true essence of what life is all about. Aren’t they?

COMMITMENT - A Pillar of FutureSTRONG Academy

 

 

Our children will one day face the real world without our support. Academic development is not the only skill they will need in the real world where people skills like taking the lead, emotional intelligence and a strong moral compass will determine who will shine. So, as parents who want to raise well rounded adults, we want to give them the right tools for their personal development.

Here is COMMITMENT as described as the 6 C’s of Future STRONG.
