A Sharp Story !!

Stay Sharp!

Once upon a time a very strong woodcutter asked for a job in a timber merchant, and he got it. The pay was really good and so were the work conditions. For that reason, the woodcutter was determined to do his best. 

His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he was supposed to work. The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees. 

"Congratulations," the boss said. "Go on that way!" Very motivated for the boss' words, the woodcutter tries harder the next day, but he only could bring 15 trees. The third day he tries even harder, but he only could bring 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees. 

"I must be losing my strength", the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on. 

"When was the last time you sharpened your axe?" the boss asked. "Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees." 

Our lives are like that. We sometimes get so busy that we don't take time to sharpen the axe." In today's world, it seems that everyone is busier than ever, but less happy than ever. Why is that? Could it be that we have forgotten how to stay sharp? 

There's nothing wrong with activity and hard work. We all need time to relax, to think and meditate proper and continuous care for the family, to learn and grow. If we don't take time to sharpen the axe, we will become dull and lose our effectiveness. So start today. Think about the ways by which you could do your job more effectively and add a lot of value to it.

Meaningful Morning One-Liners !!!

MORNING means one more inning given by the god to play.

I can not say whether things will get better if we change, 
what I can say is that if we want to get better, we need to change.

With lies you may go ahead in the world but you can never come back.

The road to a friend’s house is never too long.

When the heart is full, the eyes overflow.

There is none luckier than he who thinks himself so.

God gives every bird its food but does not always drop it into the nest.

Positive Morning Note !!

Prayer is not a "spare wheel" 
that you pull out when in trouble, 
but it is a "steering wheel" that 
directs the right path throughout....

Happiness is like a Butterfly....
When u go after it, it flies away.... 
But when you stand still.....
It comes to you.............
A Still Mind is a Happy Mind.

The Match Stick first burns itself before burning other things
Anger is also like the match stick, 
it destroys us first before destroying others

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others

Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.

Beautiful Good Morning Messages !!

Four steps to better your life:
Look back & thank God,
Look ahead and trust God,
Look around & believe God
Look within you & find God.

We used pencils when we were small but now we use pens....
Do you know why ?
Because Mistakes in Childhood can be Erased, but not Now !

"Rivers Never Go Reverse"
So try to Live like a River,
Forget your past and Focus on your Future...

Lets See a MISTAKE as a mistake,
not as 'My' or 'His' mistake.

The mind is very hard to perceive,
extremely subtle, flits wherever it listens.
Let the wise person guard it; 
a guarded mind is Conductive to happiness.

Life is short, but if you live it right ....... its enough.

Start Your Day with Inspirational Poem !

We sit and we type, and we stare at our screens,
We all have to wonder, what this possibly means.
With our mouse we roam, through the rooms in a maze,
Looking for something or someone, as we sit in a daze.

We chat with each other, we type all our woes,
Small groups we do form, and gang up on our foes.
We wait for somebody, to type out our name,
We want recognition, but it is always the same.

We hugs, and sometimes flirt,
In IMs we chat deeply, and reveal why we hurt.
We do form friendships - but - why we don't know,
But some of these friendships, will flourish and grow.

Why is it on screen, we can be so bold,
Telling our secrets, that have never been told.
Why is it we share, the thoughts in our mind,
With those we can't see, as though we were blind.

The answer is simple, it is as clear as a bell.
We all have our problems, and need someone to tell.
We can't tell "real" people, but tell someone we must,
So we turn to the 'computer', and to those we can trust.

Even though it is crazy, the truth still remains,
They are Friends Without Faces, 
and odd little names deed for another day,
Morning has come in a special way,
May you smile like the sunny rays &
Leave your worries for some other day...
