Interesting Morning Statements !

I met money one day. 
I said, 'You are just a piece of paper.' 
Money smiled and said, 
'Of course I'm a piece of paper, 
but I haven't seen a dustbin yet, in my life' .

Our life is shaped by our mind; 
we become what we think.
Joy follows a pure thought
like a shadow that never leaves.

"Progress is impossible without change;
and those who cannot change their minds 
cannot change anything."

A careless word may kindle strife, 
a cruel word may wreck a life, 
a timely word may level stress, 
a loving word may heal and bless.

Dream what you want to dream, 
go where you want to go, 
be what you want to be, 
because you have only one life and 
one chance to do all the things you want to do.

Look for the extraordinary in the ordinary !

Two workers were approached by a reporter. The reporter asked the first worker, “What are you doing?” His response was to complain that he was virtually a slave, an underpaid bricklayer who spent his days wasting his time, placing bricks on top of one another.

The reporter asked the second worker the same question. His response, however, was quite different. “I’m the luckiest person in the world,” he said. “I get to be a part of important and beautiful pieces of architecture. I help turn simple pieces of brick into exquisite masterpieces.”

They were both right.

The truth is, we see in life what we want to see. If you search for ugliness you’ll find plenty of it. If you want to find fault with other people, your service, or the world in general, you’ll certainly be able to do so. But the opposite is also true. If you look for the extraordinary in the ordinary, you can train yourself to see it. This bricklayer sees cathedrals within pieces of brick. The question is, can you?

Let Love Flow Around You !!

The one who loves is the one who gives. 

True love is free from expectations. When you discover the love within you, you can continue to give. Whether the other person gives or not, true love enables you to give unselfishly. Let today be for discovering and giving others the love within you. Make sure you do at least one act that shows your love towards anyone around you. Feel the love flowing from within to the ones around you.

Stop And Listen To The Silence Within You !

In the midst of a conversation, have you mentally switched off, shut down and gone home? Or are you busy competing for the other person's attention by going on and on and on.

Many of our conversations are not so much a dialogue, but two monologues happening at the same time.In fact, it's far more fulfilling to listen. To listen, we have to be available, not caught up in our own head or be sidetracked by our emotions.

Try not to interrupt. When someone says something, wait 3 seconds before replying to make sure that they have finished.

Make time to hear what another person has to say, to really listen and venture into a genuine conversation.

Create Love For A Task To Carry It Out Successfully !

Where there is love, the hardest task becomes easy to perform. 

If something is difficult, it means there is no love. Where there is love, even a task as difficult and big as a mountain becomes as easy and light as cotton. Love makes work easier and lighter. Today is the day to love your work. Whatever you are doing, remember that you love your work. Experiment with one thing that you have been finding it difficult to do with a reminder to yourself that you love it.
