Professor Stephen Williams Hawking was born on January 1, 1942 and died on March 14, 2018. I'm just waking up to the news and didn't even know he came into this world "300 years after the death of Galileo." Like most people, Stephen's parents hoped for a healthy baby. But to imagine a life would change due to ALS on that child's 21st birthday is unimaginable. And to think, up until the 14th day of March one of the greatest minds of all times lived in our lifetime is rather astonishing. The following quotes by Stephen Williams Hawking are something great to think about. My interpretation follows each quote and I would welcome your thoughts on one or more.
However difficult life may seem, there is always something
you can do and succeed at.
In other words, there is no boundary in imagination. Everyone has life changes.What makes the difference is how an individual learns to adapt. The first person who came to mind was Debe Maxwell, CRS and Ray. How they spend their time and energy is completely different. Wonder Woman and Super Man - that's what they are! Hawking was the sage who kept things into perspective: Don't be disabled in spirit as well as physically...
People won't have time for you
if you are always angry and complaining
I remember the first snarky comment I received on AR many years ago. Several bloggers who supported me back then told me just delete and I did. Delete works like magic! That powerful lesson helped me to understand the definition of "Next!" Professor Hawking was right! Time is valuable.
Work gives you meaning and purpose
and life is empty without it
Even when there is no business, keep working and don't stop. Professor Stephen Hawking was not threatened by challenges - it made him stronger and wiser. Life will be empty, only if you decide it's a lost cause. The cause for agent misunderstandings about no sales can actually improve the direction needed to move towards future life goals. Stephen Hawking showed the world that the mind controls our destiny. Although it's a well-known fact he spent his life being "wheelchair-bound on a computerized voice system for communication," he was a family man with three children and three grandchildren and he never stopped contributing to the world at large.
In sum, there will always be unforeseeable circumstances that are outside of ones control. Figuring things out without being dependent on others to listen to whining or complaining makes you stronger and smarter. Professor Stephen Hawking left a legacy. In hindsight critical analysis is a prerequisite for happiness and success.
