Sweet Morning Story - Be Willing To Take Advice!

Be willing to take advice !

Once upon a time, there were three people who went to watch drama together. One of them was far-sighted, another one had a hearing problem, and the other had a twisted head.

After the show, they were judging the drama.

“Today’s show had great singers, but the costume design was poor,” said the person who had farsightedness.

“The costume was perfect, but the sound was too low,” said the person who had hearing problem.

“The sound was loud and the costume was fine. Everything was great, but the performance stage was lopsided,” said the person who had twisted head.

From the story above, most people do not admit their shortcomings. It’s because the person, who had farsightedness, cannot see things in clarity, but complains about the costume; the one, who had hearing problem, cannot hear things clearly, but complains about the music; the one, who doesn’t admit his twisted head, but complains about the performance stage.
According to statistics, the vocabulary most often used in our daily communication is either “I” or “me”. Aren't conflicts among human and disputes among nations, the results of over-emphasizing one's opinion?

Accept sincere advice and the reality of truth given by others. One who is willing to take advice and relinquish one’s ego can work well with others.

Cute Morning Poem !!

Shadow of yesterday
Have faded away,
Sun has reappeared
It's a brand new day

Birds singing their song
Loud and clear,
Announcing to the world
A new day is here,

Sun appears in the east
Has begun a new quest,
In the middle at noon
And then sets in the west,

Life isn't your enemy, but your thinking can be !!

At times, it can seem like life is our enemy, as if things never quite pan out the way we would like them to, as if there’s a secret conspiracy against us. However, it’s critical to remember that, in reality, life isn’t our enemy. There is no conspiracy. Life is just life. It is what it is. The factor that can make life seem like our enemy, however, is our thinking. 
As obvious as this insight may seem, the implications are enormous. The truth is, life isn’t going to accommodate any of us by giving us fewer demands, less traffic, people who are easier to get along with, or a smoother path toward success. If we want a different experience of life, a more peaceful outlook, we are the ones who must change.
If you’re angry, you’re the one having angry thoughts. If you’re stressed, you’re the one having stressful thoughts. If you’re feeling sorry for yourself, again, you’re the one having thoughts of self-pity. The good news, of course, is that while you can’t alter life very often to suit your needs, you do have a fair measure of control over your own thinking. You can change the way you think, and you can change your reactions to life. It’s entirely up to you. You can go on hating the many inconvenient aspects of life or you can relax and commit to changing your reactions to them.
It’s very helpful to remind yourself (daily) that your life isn’t your enemy. While you’re at it, remind yourself of the tremendous power of your own thinking that your world is shaped by those thoughts you choose to focus on the most.

laying flowers on its grave by the hour, 
you cannot be planting the seeds for a new dream to grow today.

Thoughtful Morning Quotes !

90% of the problems, are due to the tone of voice.

but how you say, that creates the problem.

But, How he stands up and moves on after everything has gone wrong.
