Most successful people rarely have nothing to hide about their lives. Their lives are therefore sources of inspiration and lessons regarding many issues of life. One such successful person is Dr. Moshe Kantor whose life we will learn shortly. Dr. Kantor is a man with interests in business, charity and leadership and we need to discuss how his success in these areas can be a life lesson for anyone aspiring to be a persona of his stature in the future.
One of the things that is evident in the life of Dr. Kantor is an incessant struggle to overcome the odds Being a Jew, Dr. Kantor knew very well that the discrimination meted on his fellow Jews by certain extremists was unwarranted. Because of this, Dr. Kantor went all out to fight for equal rights of the Jews living in Europe through formations of congresses that helped the Jewish people air their concerns to the world.
This has made Dr. Kantor an instrumental figure in the reformation of the Jewish community. Today, most Jewish people can only trace their much success in business and governance through the influence of this icon. Owing to his tremendous success, we can say that no matter the place you may be or your condition today, everything imaginable is also attainable.
The other thing that Dr. Kantor’s life and success shows us is that past failures rarely define our future. Most of the lives of the Jews took a whole new direction after the events of the Holocaust. Dr. Kantor choose the rarely trodden path of using those events to let the world know about such evils and to find ways of avoiding a repeat of this in the future.
Being a Jew and bearing the fact that in mind they were the most affected by Holocaust, you would imagine that such events were not consequential to him in any way. Dr. Kantor through the World Holocaust Forum has proved that a calamity should never take away the hopes of a community. The acknowledgment of the Holocaust Education day in the European calendar is a clear indication that there is no way a past failure can hinder a determined people from advancing to attain to the goals of a safer society.
From the life and success of Dr. Kantor we can also learn a third thing that, the amount you give does not reduce how much you will accumulate. It would never be easy to name the number of charitable things Dr. Kantor has done. Funding and supporting philanthropic organizations with the aim of aiding the suffering humanity has not stopped Dr. Kantor from harvesting big from whatever he endeavors to accomplish. This is evidenced by his success in his career and business ventures spread all around the world. We learn from this that no matter how much you give to improve fellow humans, you can never be poor from being generous.
