Perception is everything. Inventing dynamite was a breakthrough (pun intended). It made people’s lives easier.
You can’t worry about how you will be remembered by others. That’s like worrying about how others see you and what they think of you. It is inherently disempowering to worry about how others see you or what they will think of you after you are gone.
The power lies in the NOW. It is about your happiness and living a life of joy. The greatest achievement in anybody’s life is to be happy. Can you imagine if more than half 0f the inhabitants on the planet were genuinely happy, how that would impact our planet? It would be incredible. It would be contagious. War would be a thing of the past. Fear would be rare.
