Cheerful Morning Story !!

An Excerpt from The Road to Happiness
by Mac Anderson and BJ Gallagher

When I travel on business, I like to talk to the taxi drivers who take me from the airport to my hotel, or to a convention center, or to a restaurant. Taxi drivers are often immigrants with interesting personal histories and unusual cultural backgrounds. I ask them how long they've been in America, how they chose which city to live in, and what they like best about where they live. Of course, I also ask them for advice on good local restaurants and any special attractions they'd recommend to a visitor. I've had some great experiences on my travels, thanks to the advice of taxi drivers!

On one trip about ten years ago, I was making conversation with the taxi driver, asking him my usual questions about how he came to live where he lived. Then I asked him a hypothetical question: "If you could live anywhere in the world-and if money was no object-where would you live?"

Without hesitating even for a second, he replied, "I live in my heart. So it really doesn't matter where my body lives. If I am happy inside, then I live in paradise, no matter where my residence is."

I felt humbled and a little foolish for my question. Of course he was right-happiness is an inside job. He had reminded me of something I already knew, but had forgotten. If you can't find happiness inside yourself, you'll never find it in the outside world, no matter where you move. Wherever you go, there you are. You take yourself with you.

I am grateful for the wisdom of that taxi driver. And I'm grateful for all the wisdom others have shared with me about how to be happy.

Best Morning Messages !!

Concentration is no the approach towards God.
Concentration is a mind approach.
God is everywhere, so you have to relax
You have to be meditative

We are tourists in this world and God is a travel agent
All journeys, reservations & destinations begin fixed by HIM,
Let us trust HIM & enjoy this journey

An injury on a tongue heals the quickest, but
An injury caused by a tongue takes the longest time to heal.

Most of the people refuse to understand,
the secret code of success which is very simple :

A life with affection will have some thorns too, but
A life without affection will have no roses.

Success is not defined by obtaining everything you want,
but by enjoying and appreciating everything you have.
Learn to enjoy what you have!!!!

True Morning One-Liners !!

A liar is worse than a thief.

The book to read is not one which thinks u,but one which makes u.

Better alone, than in a bad comapany.

God help those who help themselves.

Obstacles in the pathways of the weak, 
become stepping stone in the pathways of the strong.

Do your best. There is no goal achieved better than best.

The biggest curse in this world is poverty.

The important aspect is the result, 
not the way by which u arrive at it.

It is difficult to win a friend in a year, 
but it is easy to loose one in an hour.

WOW..... What a Lovely Day !!

Short & Sweet Morning Poem !!

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
Love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don't.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. 
If it changes your life, let it. 
Nobody said life would be easy.
They just promised it would be worth it.
