What do people say about you when you’re not there?

Keep reading to learn about this fascinating person who lives The Promise named Dr. Louis Sportelli!
The Promise to be uniquely you, and spreading your goodness, is how you will be thought of and remembered.
Do you make people laugh?
Do you make people think?
Do you do anything at all that is memorable?
I remember the first time I was trying to come up with a parody to the classic song, “Unforgettable” by Nat King Cole and daughter, Natalie Cole.
Eventually I decided to just sing it straight because I didn’t want to ruin this beautiful song for everyone forever – as I have with all the parodies I have created.
The story goes that I had just failed, for the umpteenth time, to remember a person’s name that I saw nearly every week but couldn’t capture it in my brain.
I absolutely could not associate anything to this person that could help me remember them (which sounds terrible to admit, but I speak the truth!).
The following words came to me in relation to the consistent incident, with the tune of the song humming in my mind:
“You’re forgettable…that’s what you are.
Unforgettable, you never are.
That’s why darling, it’s incredible, how someone so forgettable, makes me want to be unforgettable, too.”
Ok, well, it’s a brutal parody now as I re-type this, I hadn’t thought about this in years until this moment! I mean that’s just downright mean…
But when I was in my early 20’s that was how I was thinking:
How can I be NOT like this guy? How can I be UNFORGETTABLE?
I hope you enjoy this unforgettable story as much as I did regarding the legend of Dr. Louis Sportelli.
