Don’t Die Before Your Death-Stephen Hawking’s Success Story

Don’t die before your death, if Stephen Hawking allowed fear to hold him down when he was told that he had just 2 years to live when he was just 21 years old, maybe I might not be writing about it him today.

I don’t know what you have been told, I don’t know what is that barrier that is holding you from making that move today, I just want you to know that once there is life, there is hope.

There is nothing like a special day in anyone’s life, every day is special. Live your life to the fullest. Life has no duplicate, that is why it is too precious.

Enjoy each day of your life as though it is gonna be your last day on earth, Stephen Hawking started living the best part of his life when he was told that he had just 2 years to be alive.

No one is making out of this earth alive, we all live once and we are all gonna die someday, so discover yourself, and live your life to the fullest.

Remember, legacy is every life you have touched, every minute of the day you are building your legacy.

Nobody knows the day he/she is leaving this world, that is why you should make every day count, invest in people, and let the world and people remember you for something when you are gone.

Don’t just occupy space here on earth, do something for yourself, don’t let the teachers, your friends, the doctors, etc validate your existence in life.  You alone know what you are capable of, you alone can make it a reality

Some make it in school, some make it outside the school, Stephen Hawking was a lazy student, even the teachers confirmed that, but they knew that there was a genius in him that was going to change the world, and because he knew what was driving he, he did not die with that genius in him, he gave it to the world before leaving.

Let me inspire someone again with the life story of Stephen Hawking, and if you did not still make a change after reading this then I don’t think that anything is ever going to move you again.

Stephen hawking grew up in a family of well-educated people both of his parents have colledge degrees, so education was very important to them, but Stephen was not a very brilliant student.

Stephen Hawking wasn’t able to read properly until he was 8 and despite his average performance in school, there was something about him that his teacher recognized.

They knew that they were a hided genius deep inside him but he was never very interested in school, he was more fascinated with what was happening outside.

This made him spend most of his time inventing new things, why in school Stephen Hawking was nicknamed EINSTEIN.

When Stephen turned 17 he went to Havard University to study physics and chemistry and believe it or not he was very incredibly lazy.

He had bearly work for an hour a day and he found his first year very boring, he said to himself “I am not proud of this and nothing was worth making effort for”

After graduating from oxford university he went to Cambridge to further his study in cosmology but soon Stephen started having some strange physical symptoms.

His speech started to be slurred, he was clumsy, and he will often trip and fall, at first, he wasn’t paying much attention, but his condition kept on getting worse rapidly.

In the meantime, Stephen Hawking met his future wife Jane, but after making a series of tests, it was diagnosed that he was in the early stage of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

A part of his brain responsible for muscle control was shutting down, this disease gradually paralyzes people in our time.

They struggle to work, swallow, and even breed without help, doctors told Stephen that he had only 2 years to live.

When he had that he had just 2 years for the doctors at 21 something shifted inside of him. Faced with the possibility of dying, Stephen was motivated to make a difference.

He decided not to waste any more of his precious time, he dedicated his entire life to his work.

He became more optimistic about the future, then after he married Jane, and was blessed with three kids.

Indeed when faced with the possibility of early death you will realize that life is worth living.

It was a total waste of time to be angry about his disability and he had to go on with life because he knew that people wouldn’t have time for you if you are always angry and complaining.

He became one of the most recognized unique and admired scientists of all time. His incredible work on the black hole and the origin of the universe changed the way we think about science.

His most famous book “a brief history of time” was sold more than a 10million copies. Stephen Hawking is one of the most inspirational people in the world and burning desire to live.

He didn’t let his sickness stand in his way. No matter how hard life was and no matter how impossible and unachievable something was, giving up was never an option.

Despite all odds, he proved his doctor wrong because he miraculously lived more than 55 years after his diagnosis.

Stephen Hawking died at the age of 76, he might have been disabled in body but not in his spirit, and he had the best advice for living a happy life “remember to look to the star and not down at your feet  Never give up work, work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it”

If you are lucky enough to find love remember it is there and doesn’t throw it away, try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist.

Be curious however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at, don’t just give up, be brave be determined, and overcome the odds.

All these can be done, when there is life there is hope and that is Stephen Hawking’s story and advice.
