Moses wrote his own obituary. I’m not talking about his epitaph, that which one wants written on one’s tombstone; a lot of people write that for themselves. Moses actually wrote a very brief biography of himself as though he was deceased. And then he died. And to this day there is no clue as to where he was buried.
Moses teaches a great lesson in success with that move. He decided it was time for a big change in his life. He looked at his case history, up to that point, and wrote it down in obituary form. And then went through a born again experience by reinventing himself anew and living a totally new life – leaving the old Moses behind as a dead man. That’s why there is no clue as to where Moses was buried; he didn’t die physically, he died of the “old me” that he used to be and took a new identity.
That’s what successful people do when they have a major breakthrough and begin a new career, or a new life. They review the old life they were living. They let it go entirely. They create themselves anew. They live into their new identity and never look back.
Now that’s courage!
