Then a new king, who did not know
about Joseph, came to power.
Who was Harry Truman’s Vice President? Who won Super Bowl XXXII? Who was the Democratic Presidential nominee in 1988? Who won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1997? Who was Mayor of your town in 1998? Who was Time Magazine’s “Man of the Year” in 2000?
Fame and recognition have a short life-span. A day-in-the-sun can turn to lost-in-the-night before you know it.
From the day you were born you have been drawing down on the number of days you have to live. Use them well. Make them count. Decide what is important, and don’t be diverted by what isn’t.
Your name recognition may be short-lived, but your influence will be long-lasting if you invest your time and talent wisely.
You don’t determine the length of your life;
only the use you make of it.
