Accolades are prizes or distinctions conferred onto those who achieve great strides in their services. In the past, accolades referred to knighthood which at the time was an honorary title that presented you with the power to stop random peasants in their tracks and command them to call you ‘Sir’. Once knighted, it paved way for a legacy that could elevate you to royalty status, that is unless the monarch changes his mind and decides to throw you in a dungeon.
Knight: “Your Grace, I’ve been nothing but
faithful to the crown!”
King: “I am aware of that but you see, I got sick of having to watch those peasants line up each day along the streets and chant ‘Sir Sir Sir’ like they were paying tribute to a God.”
Knight: “But my legacy!”
King: “You ‘Sir’ have turned my very people
into a public nuisance, that is an
achievement in itself.”
Accolades literally translates to “bestowed around the neck”. Of course, knighthoods were bestowed by having the king or queen touch the warrior’s shoulder using a sword, not by wrapping the sword around his head. People wouldn’t be too thrilled about receiving one if that’s what it involved.
By pursuing growth, you are effectively raising your chances of living the life you’ve always dreamt of living, and this can be thought of as earning ‘accolades’ that provide you with the privilege of living in the wakeful realm where people congregate to pursue their hopes, dreams and desires, unlike those living in the grey who are content with the suffering through the daily grind just to get back to sleep.
Everyone gets something out of life but Its only the bold who get what
they want out of life.
“But you choose ‘Akkolades’
instead of ‘Accolades’, what gives?”
AKK is short form for ‘Alaskan Klee Kai’ which is a breed of dog that
closely resembles the Husky. They’re very loving, sweet and aren’t as
aggressive as the Huskies, making excellent companions. I’ve always wanted one.
But that’s not why I decided to replace the ‘cc’s with ‘kk’s.
I did it because someone had already registered a website with that name.
And besides, accolades sounded too mainstream.
So there you have it,
