A reporter asked the famous George Bernard Shaw that “what if” question before he died. Here is how he put it: “Mr. Shaw, you have visited with some of the most famous people of the world. You have known royalty, world renowned authors, artists and teachers. If you could live your life all over again, and be anybody you have known, or any person from history, who would you like to be?”
Shaw replied, “I would choose to be the man George Bernard Shaw could have been but never was.”
What an insight! Very few people ever achieve all the greatness that is really inside them.
Don’t wish to be somebody else. Wish to be yourself – but better.
