Sweet Morning Story - Self Appraisal


A little boy went to a Telephone booth which was at the cash counter of a store & dialed a number.

The store-Owner observed and listened to the Conversation:

Boy: "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?

Woman: (at the other end of the phone line) "I already have someone to cut my lawn."

Boy: "Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price than the person who cuts your lawn now."

Woman: I'm very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn.

Boy: (with more perseverance) "Lady, I'll even sweep the floor & the stairs of your house for free.

Woman: No, thank you.

With a smile on his face, the little boy end call with thank you.

The Store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.

Store Owner: "Son...I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit & would like to offer you a job."

Boy: "No thanks,

Store Owner: But you were really pleading for one.

Boy: No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!"

Inspirational Morning Thoughts !!

Life is a journey...not a destination. Enjoy the trip!

The biggest lie on the planet When I get what I want I will be happy.

The best way to escape your problem is to solve it.

I've learned that ultimately , 'takers' lose and 'givers' win.

Life's precious moments don't have value, unless they are shared.

If you don't start, it's certain you won't arrive.

We often fear the thing we want the most.

Lovely Morning Thoughts !

The kindest word in all the world is the unkind word, unsaid.

~   Author Unknown

We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.

~   Epictetus

One can pay back the loan of gold,
but one dies forever in debt to those who are kind.

~   Malayan Proverb

Being considerate of others will take your children further in life than any college degree.

~   Marian Wright Edelman

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,
a smile, a kind word, a listening ear,
an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

~   Leo Buscaglia

A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives roses.

~   Chinese Proverb

Enjoy Your Life Today !!

There are two days in every week
about which we should not worry,
two days which should be kept free
from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is YESTERDAY
with all its mistakes and cares,
its faults and blunders,
its aches and pains.

YESTERDAY has passed forever
beyond our control.
All the money in the world
cannot bring back YESTERDAY.

We cannot undo a single act we performed;
we cannot erase a single word we said.
YESTERDAY is gone forever.

The other day we should not
worry about is TOMORROW
with all its possible adversities, burdens,
its large promise and its poor performance;
TOMORROW is also beyond our immediate control.

TOMORROW'S sun will rise,
either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise.
Until it does, we have no stake in TOMORROW,
for it is yet to be born.

This leaves only one day, TODAY.
Any person can fight the battle of just one day.
It is when you and I add the burdens
of those two awful eternities
 YESTERDAY and TOMORROW that we break down.

It is not the experience of TODAY
that drives a person mad...
It is the remorse or bitterness of something
which happened YESTERDAY and the dread of what
TOMORROW may bring.

Let us, therefore,
Live but One Day at a Time.
