Our lives like story books, gets filled up with pages as days pass by, and what makes it all count is the journey it took to fill up these pages, the filling up of these pages is an accomplishment in its own right, but what tops that, what makes life so much more, what makes ppl interested in reading this book, is the title it has.

Sadly, most of us fill up these pages, good or bad, fulfilling or rubbish, just for the sake of having a so called life, but are at a loss to what call this story of life, titles depend on the person conceiving the title, it might be the funny one based on what that X of ppl think, or the kind, mature, listener, understanding, caring, sensitive, mean, evil, ugly, pretty, even tall, fat or deformed. The titles are many and diversified and i think, are not book titles but are rather chapter headings in this person's story book of life

Titles are that of grandeur and altering nature, some titles are of that scale on a number of ppl, where you altered or effected the lives of these select ppl, like the one who did charity in the neighborhood, or someone that helps ppl of the block to anything.
And others are of this scale on all of humanity; A genius is always compared to Einstein, although there are ppl who surpass him in terms of raw IQ power; An Athlete is always compared to Mohammad Ali, Michael Jordan and now Tiger woods in term of perfection both physically and mentally in and outside of court; an entrepreneur or business man is compared to Bill Gates in terms of success; a public speaker is compared to Martin Luther King Jr; a humanitarian is compared to Mother Theresa, and I'm not gonna even mention religious figures, these were normal ppl who transcended the shackles of being mere humans and became icons... kinda like Bruce Wayne when he became Batman.

So its up to us how we finish this book of life, and what title we choose to put on it, if it is fake, with time it will fall, as you come to know the title of your book is not something u put there urself, but it is something that you earn.
