4 Tips That Changed The Life Of Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking passed away on March 14, 2018, after not only leading a life that made a unique contribution to the advancement of science, but also surviving the short life that was predicted by the discouraging diagnosis of sclerosis. amyotrophic lateral, about half a century ago.
A man out of the ordinary

Hawking broke his life expectancy records and dedicated his life to demystifying the universe's impenetrable secrets, not only by pointing out that "where there is life, there is hope" but fully living this affirmation with resilience and agility of mind.

Man was an example of the unfailing respect for life as it is, with its limits that can be turned into possibilities. He has succeeded in showing us what it is to rely on the infinite resources of the soul, of which no kind of physical immobility can stop the movements. He lived through his curiosity.

“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change” 
And regardless of his limiting physical condition, he has managed to integrate into life in a productive and optimistic way. He remained delighted with everything that was impartial. And like a child, he always sought to see, understand, understand and tell, leave space for discussion, discuss to leave room for evolution.

Stephen Hawking was more than an incredibly gifted and indefatigable genius. He was a teacher of how to approach life with curiosity, how to use flexibility to adapt to what is happening around you. That's what makes growth and evolution: play the game, live with dignity and creativity, persevere, communicate, educate, do better and be better.

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.”

Hawking makes it clear that one must focus on things beyond the surface of one's own life. Beyond the feet that may not want to walk at times. But there are still so many resources that can be used to help advance knowledge, acceptance and productivity.

Never giving up work is a very important tip, at a time when being on a beach with money earned from one extremely successful company is the epitome of a good life. Instead of promoting unique goals that produce lifelong comfort without any obligation, Hawking advocated giving, working and exploring, contributing. Because it is in the desire to do a great job that we are alive.

"Life would be tragic if it were not funny." 

And in this simple statement is the power to redefine your reality, to choose how to feel it and what to do in the best of your current capabilities. And by redefining our situation in a way that allows us to laugh instead of crying, we can reevaluate history and find wisdom, or wonderful possibilities, or even something funny. Leaving us with what is and all we really had. What we will do depends on us. Yet we are capable of everything, just open your eyes and give yourself the opportunity to see it.

And last, Hawking teaches us gratitude.

“My expectations were reduced to zero when I was 21. Everything since then has been a bonus."

This is how Stephen described the years that followed this diagnosis that changed his life and the inevitable progression of his illness. Because, in fact, gratitude is not the result of how lucky we were to show it, but rather a condition for feeling lucky. Lucky to have accomplished, to have felt, to have lived.
