What is Your Name?

Once a soldier in the Macedonian army was brought before Alexander the Great on a charge of cowardice. Alexander heard the charge and then asked the man, “What is your name?”

In a barely audible voice, the man replied, “Alexander.”

“What is your name?” asked Alexander again.

Once more the soldier replied, “Alexander.”

The king stood up before the man and ordered, “Either change your behavior or change your name.”

Opinions of our family name or company name are often formed by our actions. Let’s do what we can to always insure that our behavior supports a good name.
