Your help to sustainable health and redesigning your body
Yesterday I went to see a magnificent exhibition about Tutankhamun. All the original pieces from his grave have been duplicated and the exhibition takes you through the history of ancient Egypt up to the point when Carter began dreaming about finding the grave of Tutankhamun, and then his struggle and his final success when finding the grave, explore it and understand it.
As I was going through the exhibition I was struck by how never ever giving up on your dream is not only essential to your success but paramount. Carter started the excavation, after having no job and no funds to pursuit his dreams, but never giving it up. He divided the area of excavation into squares. When they had searched all but one, his financier was ready to give up. But not Carter. So after determined persuation the financier Lord Carnarvon the excavation could go on, and after 10 years of nothing – the most intact Egyptian grave ever was found! Such an inspiring story!
And then it was the story of the very famous Rosette stone. The Rosetta stone was inscripted with a decree in 198 BC. It was then rediscovered in 1799 by a soldier, Pierre-François Bouchard. The stone was unique because the decree was written in three different scripts, two which had not yet been possible to understand and then ancient greek, a well known language. This provided a first ever possibility to actually decipher the hieroglyphs. Many language specialists now dove into the task of succeeding this ground breaking task.
Pierre-François Bouchard, who had rediscovered the stone was determined to be the first to succeed. And he was. 20 years later!
The Rosetta stone had such an important significance that the term Rosetta Stone is now used in other contexts as the name for the essential clue to a new field of knowledge.
Amazing! 10 and 20 years before the results they were looking for. For me this is so inspirational and such an important thing to keep in mind when sometimes struggling in my own business and when having a day when nothing seems to go my way.
The lesson? Just never ever, ever quit!
