Being Innovative - A Nice Short Story !

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: "I am blind, please help." There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, "Were u the one who changed my sign this morning? What did u write?"

The man said, "I only wrote the truth. I said what u said but in a different way."

What he had written was: "Today is a beautiful day & I cannot see it."

Do u think the first sign & the second sign were saying the same thing? Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the
second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story :

Be thankful for what you have.

Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively.

Thoughtful Morning Messages !

Compromise : The art of dividing a cake in such a way that
everybody believes he got the biggest piece.

When you get right down to the root of the meaning of the word "succeed,"
you find that it simply means to follow through.

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.
A happy woman has no cares at all.
A cheerful woman has cares but has learned how to deal with them.

You may live in an imperfect world
but the frontiers are not closed and the doors are not all shut.

Happiness is good health and a bad memory.

Defer no time, delays have dangerous ends.
