!!!!!!!Spare Just 30 SECONDS!!!!!!

"Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them - Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you're keeping all of these in the Air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four Balls - Family, Health, Friends and Spirit - are made of glass. If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.”
Bryan Dyson, CEO (Coca Cola)

ABC of positive living.Simple things you can do to find happiness.

Attitude: If you have a positive attitude towards life, everything else will follow.

Be better: In whatever you do, at work or at home, strive to perform the task better than last time you did it. Learn something new each day. Goodness is a deep gorge, which human has been discovering since time Immemorial. The more deep you go, the better it gets.

Cry: when you are sad, crying is your body's way of letting go.

Decisions: Make wise decisions and stick to them. The decisions you make today affect the life you'll live tomorrow.

Encouragement: Make it a habit to encourage yourself and others, especially when things aren't going well. Be a source of strength to those around you. Its best to do and not to tell, than to tell and not to do it.

Friends: Make new friends, keep old ones, and let go those who are a negative influence in your life.

Giving: Do something for someone for free. Feel the satisfaction of bringing joy to someone else's life. There is more happiness in giving than in receiving.

Holiday: Now and then we all need a break from the stress that comes with daily living. If you can't afford to travel, why not spend a weekend at a friend or relative's house or at a nearby lodge? The change of environment will do you good.

Inspiration: Surround yourself with people who are motivating and inspiring- the chances are it will rub off on you. Write down your goals and your favorite inspirational quotes and stick them where you can see them everyday.

Jokes: Laughter has been known to reduce stress, so laugh a lot. Buy a book of funny jokes and read them when you are feeling low.

Kindness: This is a virtue that's hard to find these days. Cultivate it and you'll be as rare as a diamond.

Love: "love is patient and kind. It does not envy or boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. Love never fails" This wonderful definition of love is found in the BIBLE in 1 Corinthians 13. See if you can match up by trying to substitute the word "love" with your name.

Move: When you fall do not stay down. Instead, get up and keep moving, no matter how difficult it may seem. Always try to make good perspective and manner a part of life.

Nature: Enjoy nature. There's so much to learn about it. Take care of the world and the environment around you as you would take care of a house you are proud of. Do not litter and destroy nature-you are not creating employment but poverty.

Opportunities: Keep your mind and your eyes open for new opportunities. Sometimes they present themselves in areas where we least expect them. Grab them before someone else does, and don’t let fear stop you.

Pray: A conversation with your maker is worth every minute. Make time to speak to him on a regular basis, through good times and bad.

Quit Quitting: There is an Ethopian proverb that says: " Smooth seas don't make skillful sailors". Finish what you start. Don't just give up when you are faced with an obstacle.

Relax and Rest: Get enough sleep. That way you start the next day feeling refreshed and healthy.

Seek success: Your success is not measured by how much money you have. Aim for success in all aspects of your life, as a parent, as a worker, as a lover or as a friend. Just don’t spend life-Live. Just don’t touch-Feel. Just don’t see-Contemplate. Just don’t read-Follow it. Just don’t listen-Understand.
Success is a Journey. The way to success is only a right perspective.

Time consciousness: Value your time and other people's time. Procrastination steals time and gives no rewards.

Variety: Variety is the spice of life and it also increases your creativity. Be friend someone who has a different background to yours. Accept that your way is not the only way.

XPEL: XPEL negative thoughts from your life. Surround yourself with people who have qualities that you want to develop in yourself. Nothing by nature is bad or good. People take good or bad as they like.

You: Realize that you are unique and special, and in fact the starting point of perfection. Find your own unique way of making a positive contribution to society. Try always to increase your knowledge because you will start to deplete from the time you stop learning.

Zeal: Be Zealous in following your dreams and nothing will stand in your way. Your enthusiasm will make people want to help you reach your destination.

" We see things not as they are, but as we are"

Can I Borrow $ 25?

A woman came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find her 5-year old son waiting for her at the door.

SON: 'Mummy, may I ask you a question?'

MUM: 'Yeah sure, what it is?' replied the woman.

SON: 'Mummy, how much do you make an hour?'

MUM: 'That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?' the woman said angrily. SON: 'I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?'

MUM: 'If you must know, I make $ 50 an hour.'

SON: 'Oh,' the little boy replied, with his head down.

SON: 'Mummy, may I please borrow $25?'

The mother was furious, 'If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I don't work hard everyday for such childish frivolities.' The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.. The woman sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the woman had calmed down , and started to think: Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $25.00 and he really didn't ask for money very often The woman went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door. 'Are you asleep, son?' She asked. 'No Mummy, I'm awake,' replied the boy. 'I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier' said the woman. 'It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $25 you asked for.' The little boy sat straight up, smiling. 'Oh, thank you Mummy!' he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The woman saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his mother. 'Why do you want more money if you already have some?' the mother grumbled. 'Because I didn't have enough, but now I do,' the little boy replied. 'Mummy, I have $50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.' The mother was crushed. She put his arms around her little son, and she begged for his forgiveness. It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $50 worth of your time with someone you love. If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.

How to bring back Joy to work!!!!!

How to bring joy back to your work Joy at work is not a matter of working in a lavish infrastructure, earning countless dollars and partying out every night. It is rather a practice of being happy with what you are doing and more importantly for whom you are doing.
People working in the biggest companies, earning millions of dollars are not the happiest ones always. Someone working in a local company with much lesser salary can be happier. Do you remember the old days when you passed out from the college and landed up your first job?
The excitement of going to work could be seen bubbling out but as the time passed, things changed. Going to work became an obligation rather than an enjoyment. Do you realise what changed in these few years?
Here are some tips to help you regain that joy in your work:
1. Be realistic
We often have a habit of setting unrealistic goals for ourselves. We expect more than what we are capable of and when we are not able to meet our goals, depression seeps in and the work becomes a source of unhappiness rather than joy.
See, if you also aimed to touch skies overnight. If yes, set S.M.A.R.T goals for yourself. SMART here means: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timely.

2. Turn to the office with a right mindset
Enter your office with a positive mindset about your work, colleagues and employer.
Bearing negative thoughts about your workplace will not only hamper your performance but will not let you like your work.

3. Maintain a good rapport with everyone at office
This is something said ad-nauseam times but not practiced very often. The best way to do is to maintain an open communication with your boss and colleagues.
Practice small things like helping people wherever you can, pass a gentle smile as you see a colleague and you will see that you will always have some to help or advice you when needed.

4. Try to fix the problems rather than complaining
Most of us have a habit of sitting and criticising things.
Rather than just discussing the problems around it will be a better idea to find a solution to them. This will not only create a healthy work atmosphere but also give you a sense of achievement.

5. Focus on your KPAs
Many of us feel that we are doing a lot of work which is not recognised. This acts as a source of depression at work.
The best way to come out of such a situation is to focus on your Key Performance Areas.
If you do everything but your actual job, your performance will never be appreciated. So, see if you are doing the right things.

6. Maintain transparency
If you are a boss or a senior person at your workplace, try to maintain transparency in the work culture.
Well informed employees are easier to work with and will reduce your worries. Moreover, you will see that they will stand by you in the hour of need.

7. Celebrate success with juniors

Keep patting for the next batting.
Celebrate success with the junior members of your team. If they are happy and motivated, half of your worries will evaporate themselves.
Also, such informal gatherings bring your team members closer and increase the compatibility quotient.

8. Accept new challenges and risks
A common feature of most of the happy professionals around.
This will give you not only the joy of recognition but also a feeling of satisfaction. Identify new challenges and volunteer to handle them.
If you are offered an opportunity to handle any new project which might be totally new for you, accept the challenge and do all that is required to make it successful.

9. Stay away from dirty politics
Dirty office politics will not let you do your actual job affecting your performance, will keep your colleagues away from you and won't let you think constructively.
So, keep away from politics and blame game. If you have committed a mistake, accept it gracefully and learn to correct it.

10. Take a rejuvenating break from work
There will be times when even after practicing all the above mentioned things you will feel exhausted. This is an indication from your body that it needs rest.
So, take a break and rejuvenate yourself for the next inning.

During a seminar, a woman asked," How do I know if I am with the right person?" the author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, "It depends. Is that your partner?" In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?" Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind replied the author. Here's the answer.Every relationship has a cycle...In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love.People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet." Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU. Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It's a natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage. At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, "Am I with the right person?" And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when relationships breakdown.The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it's learning to love the person you found.People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, a friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship. It lies within it. I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later. Because (listen carefully to this): “The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it's learning to love the person you found”.
SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner). Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. If you know and apply these laws, the results are predictable. Love is therefore a "decision". Not just a feeling.
Remember this always:
“God determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let GO!!”

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped,confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a rope tied to their legs. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

"Well" he said, " when they are young and very much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and at that age, it's enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free". My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn't they were stuck right where they were. The powerful and gigantic creatures has limited its present abilities by the limitations of its past.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life holding onto a belief that we cannot do something simply because we failed at it once before? How many of us refuse to attempt something new and challenging because of our so called Mindset?

Our attempt may fail, but still we should never fail to make an attempt.


We should not choose to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
