Do you know the meaning to your name or why your parents choose the name they did for you? In many cultures names are picked because of specific meanings behind it. They most often than not, when the child is born the pet names get introduced.
So, what's in a name? Does your life reflect the character or meaning of your name? In the Bible we read that God or Jesus changed the names of people and the course of their lives changed. I am not suggesting you change your name, but I am suggesting that you consider the meaning behind your name.
Your name was given to you at birth, not because it reflected who you were. It was too early to tell who you would become. It is not how we start the journey that counts but how we finish it. Yes, how a person start impacts them and it leaves a mark on the individual and can even determine how life is lived. However, how we finish leaves a mark on others.
So, how will you be remembered or more importantly what will you be remembered for? When your name is spoken or uttered what emotions are stirred amongst your family, friends or colleagues? Your name will only make an impact based on your behaviour. Does your behaviour speak volumes about the person you are or hope to be?
