We live in a world full of half-alive people who are no longer sold on themselves.
What do I want to be remembered for? This is a fundamental question asked by just about every successful individual who has made it through the wall, which seemed to have stood in the way towards their destiny. They will also tell you that the success principles rooted deep inside them were the defining agents which helped created the success all around them. If those roots run deep in you, your chance of succeeding is inevitable.
In 2009 American voters elected Senator Barak Obama as its first black president. Indeed a far cry from the civil rights revolution of the 1960s, when blacks were not even permitted to ride in the front of the bus as whites did or even dine in certain restaurants. In those days “segregation” was not only an academic institutional slogan but also a household word. Bottom line: back then severe limits were placed on the associations of these two races - with blacks at a stringent disadvantage.
During that era of intense racial conflicts, civil rights leaders including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. emerged on the scene. King, a black man from the south fought for, and lost his life (assassinated) in an effort to fulfill his dream of equality. A dream that: one day his children would not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. And that one day white kids and black kids would walk holding hands together.
