ATHLETE

We have reached the final segment of Mark Dugdale's elitefts Open UGSS presentation. Let's recap the topics Mark has covered so far:

In this video, Mark closes his presentation by finishing his discussion of life balance. First he discusses a man by the name of Audie Leon Murphy. One of the most decorated military veterans in American history, Murphy went on to have a successful 20-year acting career and also became a well-known horse breeder. With all of these accomplishments, almost no one knows who he is today.

So why does Mark talk about him?

You may not want to accept it, but Murphy's story means that in 100 years, no one is going to know who you are or remember you. You can spend your entire life working hard, trying to become relevant through your accomplishments, but you will only be remembered for the lives you touched and the personal relationships you formed. And the thing is, those are the things that will make you most happy, too.

Unconvinced? Solomon had concubines full of women. He planted forests, built a temple, and would wipe out entire vineyards simply to supply wine for one of his parties. Everything he tried didn't make him happy. All his accomplishments, and he still wasn't fulfilled. The conclusion Solomon reached? It's all meaningless. It's simply chasing after the wind. So remember to care for your relationships and to value the people in your life, because they're the only ones who are going to remember you once you're gone.
