One of the most beautiful books to read is “Die Empty” by Todd Henry. The author was inspired and got this idea of writing this book while attending a business meeting. When the director asked the audience: “Where is the richest land in the world?”
One of the audience answered: “Oil-rich Gulf states.”
Another added: “Diamond mines in Africa.”
Then the director said: “No it is the cemetery. Yes, it is the richest land in the world, because millions of people have departed, “they have died” and they carried many valuable ideas that did not come to light and benefited others. It is all in the cemetery where they are buried.”
Inspired by this answer, Todd Henry wrote his book “Die empty.” Where he did his best to motivate people to pour out their ideas and potential energies in their communities and turn them into something useful before it is too late. He writes
“Do not go to your grave and carry inside you the best that you have – always choose to die empty*
The TRUE meaning of this expression, is to die empty of all the goodness that is within you. Deliver it to the world, before you leave
If you have an idea perform it.
If you have a knowledge give it out.
If you have a goal achieve it.
Love, share and distribute, do not keep it inside.
