PRIDE CERTAINLY HAS A FALL


Gorelal was a famous sculptor. His sculptures looked like real ones. One day he saw a dream that after fifteen days, the demon of Death would come to take him.
Gorelal prepared nine statues of himself and when on the 15th day he heard
the Demon of Death coming, he took his place between the statues. The Demon could not recognise him and was astonished to see ten Gorelals instead of one. He rushed back to the God of death and told the matter. The God of death got annoyed and set out to take Gorelal himself.
Gorelal was alert and stood motionless. The God of Death initially got perplexed. But he thought for a moment. He said, “Gorelal, these sculptures would have been perfect but for one mistake." Gorelal was unable to suffer the least blemish in his work. He came out and asked, "Where is the fault?" God of Death caught him and said, “HERE".
The statues were faultless but Gorelal was caught because of his pride.

Opportunities And Obstacles Are Blessings In Disguise

Opportunities and Obstacles?

What do you when you are faced with opportunities? How do you react when your much-awaited dream happens? Excitement and inexpressible joy.
I would like to ask you; how did you take the opportunity and how was it used?

Many times, we have missed opportunities or taken advantage of these opportunities and maximized them. The twist of our discussion is that we want to know how you handled obstacles found in the opportunities.
Opportunities are defined as appropriate or favorable time for attainment of a goal. Obstacles are known to be any force, physical, mental or spiritual that block one’s way to success of progress. They are also called stumbling blocks.
These obstacles pose themselves as nature or even human factored and look insurmountable. But do you know that once you are equipped with the right knowledge, you will understand how best to handle obstacles and make them stepping stones.
Let me share the story of the donkey and the well.
One day a donkey fell into a well. The donkey cried profusely and piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the donkey was old and the well needed to be covered anyway. It wasn’t just worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began shoving dirt into the well.
At first the donkey realized what was happening and cried out horribly but no one listened. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down. Then the wise animal hit a plan.
As each spade-full of dirt hit his back, the donkey would dust it off and take a step up on the growing mound of the earth. Eventually, the mound grew high enough for him to step out and happily trotted off.
Life is going to shove all kinds of dirt on you. The trick is to getting out of the well is to shaking the dirt off and taking a step up. We can get to the deepest side of the well with many obstacles coming from various quarters we least expected. But we must shake them off and step on the heap to move on up!
Stay hopeful and cheerful! Be like the wise donkey and step up above your obstacles.

(STORY OF REGRET)

A man was polishing his new car; his 4 year old daughter picked up a stone and scratched on the side of the car. In anger, the furious Man took his child’s hand & hit it many times, not realizing he was using a wrench. At the hospital,the man realized that the child lost all her fingers due to multiple fractures.
When the child saw her father, with painful eyes he asked ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’ The man was so hurt and speechless. He went back to the car and kicked it many times. Devastated by his own actions, sitting in front of the car he looked at the scratches, His daughter had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.

MORAL LESSONS
Remember, Anger and Love have no limit. Always remember that “Things are to be used and people are to be loved”. But the problem in today’s world is that “People are being used & Things are being loved”.

I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER!(A MUST READ)


A MOTHER once held her new baby and very slowly rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while she held him, she sang:
I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you love always,
As long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.
The baby grew. He grew and he grew and he grew. He grew until he was two years old, and he ran all around the house. He pulled all the books off the shelves. He pulled all the food out of the refrigerator and he took his mother’s watch and flushed it down the toilet. Sometimes his mother would say, “this kid is driving me CRAZY!”
But at night time, when that two-year-old was quiet, she opened the door to his room, walked across the floor, looked up down and the side of his bed; and if he was really asleep she picked him up and rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. While she rocked him she sang:
I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
As long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.
The little boy grew. He grew and he grew and he grew. He grew until he was nine years old. And he never wanted to come in for dinner, he never wanted to take a bath, and when grandma visited he always said bad words. Sometimes his mother wanted to sell him to the zoo!
But at night time, when he was asleep, the mother quietly opened the door to his room, walked across the floor and looked down at over the side of the bed. If he was really asleep, she picked up that nine-year-old boy and rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while she rocked him she sang:
I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
As long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.
The boy grew. He grew and he grew and he grew. He grew until he was a teenager. He had strange friends and he wore strange clothes and he listened to strange music. Sometimes the mother felt like she was in a zoo!
But at night time, when that teenager was asleep, the mother opened the door to his room, walked across the floor and looked down over the side of the bed. If he was really asleep she picked up that great big boy and rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. While she rocked him she sang:
I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
As long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.
That teenager grew. He grew and he grew and he grew. He grew until he was a grown-up man. He left home and got a house across town. But sometimes on dark nights the mother got into her car and drove across town. If all the lights in her son’s house were out, she opened his bedroom window, walked across the floor, and looked down over the side of his bed. If that great big man was really asleep she picked him up and rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while she rocked him she sang:
I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
As long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.
Well, that mother, she got older. She got older and older and older. One day she called up her son and said, “You’d better come see me because I’m very old and sick.” So her son came to see her. When he came in the door she tried to sing the song. She sang:
I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always…
But she couldn’t finish because she was too old and sick. The son went to his mother. He picked her up and rocked her back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And he sang this song:
I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
As long as I’m living
my Mommy you’ll be.
When the son came home that night, he stood for a long time at the top of the stairs. Then he went into the room where his very new baby daughter was sleeping. He picked her up in his arms and very slowly rocked her back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while he rocked her he sang:
I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
As long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.

APPRECIATE YOUR MOTHERS NOW THAT THEY ARE ALIVE, SO THAT YOU WON'T LIVE TO REGRET IT LATER IN LIFE!.

YOU ALWAYS HAVE DOUBLE CHANCES IN LIFE


Frank was the kind of guy you love to hate.
He was always in a good mood and always had something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I would be twins!" He was a unique manager because he had several waiters who had followed him around from restaurant to restaurant. The reason the waiters followed frank was because of his positive attitude. He was a natural motivator.
If an employee was having a bad day, frank was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation. Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Frank and asked him, "I don't get it! You can't be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it? I asked...
Frank replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to myself, 'frank, you have two choices today.
You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood.'so I choose to be in a good mood.
Any time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.
Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life."
"Yeah, right, it's not that easy," I protested.
"Yes, it is," Frank said. "Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice.
You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood.
The bottom line: It's your choice how you live life."
I reflected on what Frank said. Soon thereafter, I left the restaurant industry to start my own business.
We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.
Several years later, I heard that frank did something you are never supposed to do in a restaurant business: he left the back door open one morning and was held up at gunpoint by three armed robbers.
While trying to open the safe, his hand, shaking from nervousness, slipped off the combination. The robbers panicked and shot him. Luckily, frank was found quickly and was rushed to the local trauma center.
After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Frank was released from the hospital with fragments of the bullets still in his body.
I saw Frank about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied, "If I were any better, I'd be twins. Wanna see my scars?"
I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through his mind as the robbery took place. "The first thing that went through my mind was that I should have locked the back door," Frank replied.
"Then, as I lay on the floor, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live, or I could choose to die. I chose to live."
"Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I asked.
Frank continued, "The paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the emergency room and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read, 'He's a dead man.' I knew I needed to take action."
"What did you do?" I asked.
"Well, there was a big, burly nurse shouting questions at me," said Frank . "She asked if I was allergic to anything. 'Yes,' I replied. The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, 'Bullets!'
Over their laughter, I told them, 'I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead.'"
Frank lived thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude. I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully.
Attitude, after all, is everything.
And choosing to be positive is challenging and yet easy to choose.
