Throw a brick

Sharing a beautiful story.

Read this today and don’t delete it even if you are too busy! You’ll see….

A young and successful executive was driving down a neighbourhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something.

As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag’s side door!

He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown.

The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car shouting, ‘What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are you doing? That’s a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why did you do it?’

The young boy was apologetic. ‘Please, mister…please, I’m sorry but I didn’t know what else to do,’ he pleaded. ‘I threw the brick because no one else would stop…’

With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car. ‘It’s my brother,’ he said. ‘He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can’t lift him up.’

Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, ‘Would you please help me get him back into his wheelchair? ‘He’s hurt and he’s too heavy for me.’

Moved beyond words, the executive tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat… He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at his fresh
scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay.

‘Thank you and may God bless you,’ the grateful child told the stranger, too shook up for words..
The man simply watched the boy push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk towards their home.

It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very
noticeable, but the executive never bothered to repair the dented side door. He kept the dent there to remind himself of this message:

*’Don’t go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention!’*

God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we don’t have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It’s our choice to listen or not.

Thoughts for the Day:

If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.

If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.

He sends you flowers every spring.

He sends you a sunrise every morning. Face it, He is crazy about you!

Share this story with every person’ you wish to bless…. No condition__God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

Read this line very slowly and let it sink in:

*If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.*

All for the best

I love this, read it:

Once upon a time in the kingdom of East there was a brave King. 😰The King had a male servant who, in all circumstances always said to him; My king, do not be discouraged because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes. All is for the best.

One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king, the servant managed to kill the animal but couldn’t prevent his majesty from losing a finger. Furious and without showing gratitude, the King said; if God was good, I would not have been attacked and lost one finger. The servant replied, ‘despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good and everything He does is perfect, He is never wrong’.

Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his servant. While being taken to prison, he told the king again, God is Good & Perfect.

Another day, the king left alone for another hunt and was captured by savages who use human beings for sacrifice. On the altar, the savages found out that the king didn’t have one finger in place, he was released because he was considered not “complete” to be offered to the gods.

On his return to the palace, he ordered the release of his servant and said; My friend, God was really good to me. I was almost killed but for lack of a single finger, I was let go. But I have a question; If God is so good, why did He allow me to put you in prison? His servant replied; My king, if I had not been put in prison, I would have gone with you, and would have been sacrificed, because I have no missing finger.

Everything God does is perfect, He is never wrong. Often we complain about life, and the negative things that happen to us, forgetting that everything happens for a purpose. God knows why you are reading this message today, please bless someone with it by sharing it. God is good and perfect!! My dear friend, a good attitude will determine your altitude. When you look at your life, career, job or family life, what do you say? Do you praise God? Do you blame the Satan? A good attitude towards God makes Him move on your behalf. Just sit down and say, Today , I am thankful I had a peaceful sleep, I am thankful I am alive with possibilities, I am thankful I have a roof over me, I am thankful I have a job, I am thankful that I have Family and Friends. Above all, I am thankful that I have God in my life . Be blessed and don’t be envious or shocked when others are prospering because you don’t know what they have been through to get there (test, trials and tribulation) so thank God for what you have. “Little is much when God is in it. It Is Well With God’s grace.

Share it. Stay blessed ! Inspire others !

Parsi mode

*THE PARSI _”MODI”_*

Russi Modi, Chairman, Tata Steel, was holding a weekly meeting with TATA STEEL staff at a football ground in Jamshedpur.

A worker took up a niggling issue….

He said the quality, cleanliness and hygiene of toilets for WORKERS was very bad.
Whereas, he pointed out, the quality, cleanliness and hygiene of EXECUTIVE toilets was always very good.

Russi turned to his top executive and asked how much time he needed to set it right.

The executive asked for a month to set it right.

Russi replied:
*”I would rather do it in a day. Send me a carpenter.”*

Next day, when the carpenter arrived, Russi simply ordered the SIGNBOARDS to be swapped !!!

The signboard on the “workers” toilet was changed to “EXECUTIVES”
…and the signboard on the “executives” toilet was changed to “WORKERS”.

Russi then gave instructions to the Carpenter to inter-change it *every fortnight!*

😄 Guess what !!?

The quality of BOTH toilets became *on par* in 3 days’ time!

….and has been maintained ever since!

Beauty in the eye

This❤
Good read from one of Sonam Kapoor’s articles…

“So, for every teen girl leaning into her bedroom mirror, wondering why she doesn’t look like a celebrity: Please know that nobody wakes up like this. Not me. Not any other actress. (Not even Beyoncé. I swear.)

Here’s the real deal: Before each public appearance, I spend 90 minutes in a makeup chair. Three to six people work on my hair and makeup, while a professional touches up my nails. My eyebrows are tweezed and threaded every week. There’s concealer on parts of my body that I could never have predicted would need concealing.

I’m up at 6am every day and at the gym by 7:30. I exercise for 90 minutes and, some evenings, again before bed. It’s someone’s full-time job to decide what I can and cannot eat. There are more ingredients in my face packs than in my food. There’s a team dedicated to finding me flattering outfits.

After all that, if I’m still not “flawless” enough, there are generous servings of Photoshop.

I’ve said it before, and I will keep saying it: It takes an army, a lot of money, and an incredible amount of time to make a female celebrity look the way she does when you see her. It isn’t realistic, and it isn’t anything to aspire to.

Aspire to confidence. Aspire to feeling pretty and carefree and happy, without needing to look any specific way.

And the next time you see a 13-year-old girl gazing wistfully at a blemish-free, shiny-haired Bollywood actress on a magazine cover, bust the myth of flawlessness for her.

Tell her how beautiful she is. Praise her smile or her laugh or her mind or her gait.

Don’t let her grow up believing that she’s flawed, or that there’s anything she’s lacking for looking different from a woman on a billboard. Don’t let her hold herself to a standard that’s too high, even for the women on the billboards.

Story of marriage

Today on World Marriage Day it’s good to read a post on Facebook by Michelle Barrack Obama every couple should read….
HARDCORE TRUTH ABOUT MARRIAGE!
1. There is nothing that threatens the security of a wife than the thought of another woman competing for the attention and affection of her husband. Nothing is more painful. Nothing is more disrespecting. Nothing is more insulting. Nothing is more belittling and degrading.
2. Marriage flourishes when the couple works together as a team; when both husband and wife decide that winning together is more important than keeping score.
Good marriages don’t just happen. They are a product of hard work.
3. Your children are watching you and forming lasting opinions on love, commitment, and marriage based on what they see in you. Give them hope. Make them look forward to marriage.
4. Husbands: The reason why other women look attractive is because someone is taking good care of them. Grass is always green where it is watered. Instead of drooling over the green grass on the other side of the fence, work on yours and water it regularly. Any man can admire a beautiful woman, but it takes a true gentleman to make a woman admirable and beautiful.
5. When a husband puts his wife first above everyone and everything except God, it gives his wife the sense of security and honor that every wife hungers for.
6. A successful marriage doesn’t require a big house, a prefect spouse, a million dollars or an expensive car. You can have all the above and still have a miserable marriage. A successful marriage requires honesty, undying commitment and selfless love and God at the center of it all.
7. Pray for your spouse every day; in the morning, in the afternoon and at evening. Don’t wait until there is a problem. Don’t wait until there is an affair. Don’t wait until something bad happens. Don’t wait until your spouse is tempted. Shield your spouse with prayer and cover your marriage with the fence of prayer.
8. The people you surround yourself with have a lot of influence on your marriage. Friends can build or break your marriage; choose them wisely.
9. One spouse cannot build a marriage alone when the other spouse is committed to destroying it. Marriage works when both husband and wife work together as a team to build their marriage.
10. Don’t take your spouse for granted. Don’t take advantage of your spouse’s meekness and goodness. Don’t mistake your spouse’s loyalty for desperation. Don’t misuse or abuse yours spouse’s trust. You may end up regretting after losing someone that meant so much to you.
11. Beware of marital advice from single people. Regardless of how sincere their advice may be, most of it is theoretical and not derived from real life experiences. If you really need Godly advice, seek it from God-fearing, impartial and prayerful mature couples whose resolve has been tested by time and shaped by trials.
12. Dear wife, don’t underestimate the power of the tongue on your marriage. The tongue has the power to crush your marriage or build it up. Don’t let the Devil use your tongue to kill your spouse’s image, self-confidence and aspirations. Let God use your tongue to build up your marriage and bless and praise your spouse.

*Marriage is teamwork which works best without third party influence. Don’t let others predict the fate of your marriage. Create a relationship that is unaffected by the false presumptions of others*

WISHING YOU ALL A *HAPPY MARRIAGE* AND FOR THOSE SINGLE I WISH YOU A *HAPPY RELATIONSHIP* 🌹

Lesson from Steve jobs

Do u know Steve Jobs
CEO and maker of iPad…iPhone etc

He died a billionaire
And here are his last words

On the sick bed

Steve Jobs’ Last Words –

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.
In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.
Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – “Life”.

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”.

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends…

Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $300. or $30.00 watch – – – – – – – they both tell the same time…

Whether we carry a $300 or $30.00 wallet/handbag – – – – – – – the amount of money inside is the same;

Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $10 wine – – – – – – – – – – – – the hangover is the same;

Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3000 sq. ft. – – – – – – – – loneliness is the same.

You will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.

Whether you fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down – – – – – – –you go down with it…

Therefore..I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven &
earth, …. That is true happiness!!

Sent with Smiles, Affection and Love !!

Life is wonderful

Beautiful Message.

A rich man looked through his window and saw a poor man picking something from his dustbin … He said, Thank GOD I’m not poor.

The poor man looked around and saw a naked man misbehaving on the street … He said, Thank GOD I’m not mad.

The mad man looked ahead and saw an ambulance carrying a patient … He said, Thank GOD am not sick.

Then a sick person in hospital saw a trolley taking a dead body to the mortuary … He said, Thank GOD I’m not dead.

Only a dead person cannot thank God.

Why don’t you thank GOD today for all your blessings and for the gift of life … for another beautiful day.

What is LIFE?
To understand life better, you have to go to 3 locations :

1. Hospital
2. Prison
3. Cemetery

At the Hospital, you will understand that nothing is more beautiful than HEALTH.

In the Prison, you’ll see that FREEDOM is the most precious thing.

At the Cemetery, you will realize that life is worth nothing. The ground that we walk today will be our roof tomorrow.

Sad Truth* : We all come with Nothing and we will go with Nothing … Let us, therefore, remain humble and be thankful & grateful to God at all times for everything.

Could you please share this with someone else, and let them know that God loves them ?

Sales as profession

Sales as a best profession.

Most of the young aspiring professionals I meet are against joining the Sales domain. My advice to them from my experience is that Sales is the only domain where in money is infused at both business zones i.e. money is infused when the business is doing great and money is infused when the business is not doing great.

It is the only department which has tangible KPI’s & #KRA’s.

Moreover in life we are always selling, as a child we sell ourselves to parents. They tell us to complete our home work or do some activity in return of a fun visit to park, getting a toy or icecream or McDonald’s / KFC / Pizza hut.

As a brother or sister we sell ourselves to collaborate and cooperate to live our family life with sharing, competing and encouragement to create precious memories for life.

As a collegian, we sell ourselves to our would be girlfriend / boyfriend by getting their demands fulfilled and dancing to their tune.

As an prospective employee we sell ourselves during the interview to our employer and acheive the goals of the vision and mission of the company.

As an adult, we sell ourselves to get married to our would be Spouse in a matrimonial alliance to provide and gain the cooperation of her to start and live your family.

As a parent we sell ourselves to be the best example for our children by changing ourselves to be a hero model to be followed.

As a Friend we sell ourselves to our friends who shares not our work place but our leisure space to be with them and gain their confidence to be fun and sportive in games of life.

have Sales ingrained into your DNA and have fun while selling

View from the window

A great note for all to read it will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.

Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the
room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man couldn’t hear the band – he could see it. In his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days and weeks passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window.. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside..

He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.
It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window
The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.
She said, ‘Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.’
Epilogue

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situation
Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is dou

bled

If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can’t buy
T

oday is a gift, that’s why it is called the present.’

Smart woman knows her place

WOMEN WHO KNOW THEIR PLACE
Barbara Walters, of 20/20, did a story on gender roles in Kabul
,Afghanistan , several years before the Afghan conflict.. She noted
that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.
She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk
behind their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban
regime, the women now seem to, and are happy to, maintain the old
custom.
Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, ‘Why do you
now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately
to change?’
The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without
hesitation said, ‘Land Mines’.WOMEN WHO KNOW THEIR PLACE
