Goodie Mn!!!

Hi all,
Gm..
Have a excellent start of week ahead!!

Gifts You Can Give Year Round



The Gift of Praise
Appropriate mention,

right in front of the other fellow,

of superior qualities or of a job or deeds well done.


The Gift of Consideration

Putting yourself in the other's shoes and thus providing

your genuine understanding of his side of the case.

The Gift of Concession

Humbly saying at just the right point,

"I am sorry, you are right and I am wrong."

The Gift of Gratitude
Never forgetting to say "Thank You"
and never failing to mean it.


The Gift of Attention
When the other fellow speaks, listen attentively.
If his words are directed to you
personally, meet his eye squarely.


The Gift of Inspiration
Plant seeds of courage and action
in the other person's heart.


The Gift of Personal Presence
In sickness, in trouble, or in great joy,
there is nothing quite equal to your
personal _expression of sympathy or
congratulations. Resolve to give these gifts
each day. You will be pleasantly surprised
at what you will receive in return.

Life is Like that!!.. :)))

I WAS ADDRESSING SOME MAIL when I noticed that my card file of frequently used addresses was missing. Thinking it must have fallen from my typing table into the wastebasket, I called the office janitor. "I've lost my Rolodex," I told him. "It may have been picked up with the trash. Is there any way you could find it?" He said he would conduct a search. When the janitor informed me he had searched every trash container for my Rolodex, with no luck, I thanked him for his trouble. As I left work that evening, the janitor met me at the door. "Good night," he said, smiling apologetically. "Sorry I couldn't find your watch."

Luv,
Viji.

Fabulous Mng!!!!

Hi all,
Gud mng!!
Have a great day and fabulous weekend!!!


small words BIG thought!!

WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU A KICK

I'm told the story is true: A woman was giving birth to a baby in an elevator at a hospital. When she complained about the location, a nurse said, "Why, this isn't so bad; last year a woman delivered her baby out on the front lawn."

"Yes," said the woman giving birth, "that was me, too."

Who said, "If I didn't have bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all"? But on the other hand, not all "bad luck" should be considered a bad thing! Like someone said, "When life gives you a kick, let it kick you forward."

In the 1920s, Ernest Hemingway learned something about "bad luck" and getting kicked by life. He was struggling to make his mark as an author when disaster struck. He lost a suitcase containing all his manuscripts - many stories he'd polished to jewel-like perfection - which he'd been planning to publish in a book.

According to Denis Waitley in his book EMPIRES OF THE MIND (William Morrow and Company, Inc., 1995), the devastated Hemingway couldn't conceive of redoing his work. All those months of arduous writing were simply wasted.

He lamented his predicament to friend and poet Ezra Pound who called it a stroke of good fortune! Pound assured Hemingway that when he rewrote the stories, he would forget the weak parts; only the best material would reappear. He encouraged the aspiring author to start over with a sense of optimism and confidence. Hemingway did rewrite the stories and eventually became a major figure in American literature.

Don't pray for fewer problems; pray for more skills. Don't ask for smaller challenges; ask for greater wisdom. Don't look for an easy way out; look for the best possible outcome.

When life gives you a kick, let it kick you forward.
Luv,
Viji.

The Astronomer

An astronomer used to go out at night to observe the stars. One evening, as he wandered through the suburbs with his whole attention fixed on the sky, he fell accidentally into a deep well.

While he lamented and bewailed his sores and bruises, and cried loudly for help, a neighbour ran to the well, and learning what had happened said,

'Hark ye old fellow, why in striving to pry into what is in heaven, do you not manage to see what is on earth?'

Luv,

Great mn!!!!

Hi all,
Gm..
Have a great day ahead and wonderful weekend!!


small words BIG thought!!!
It always seems as if inspiration suddenly comes out of thin air, but if you look back, you'll often see that it was a result of all the actions
you've taken previously that generated that inspiration.

A book you read.
A conversation you had with another person.
A project you handled at work in the past.

A hundred different actions, some big, some small, that when combined help generate the inspiration you were seeking.

The more actions you take, the more "fodder" for inspiration you make.

Luv,
Viji.

small words wonderful thought!!!

NO FUTURE IN THE PAST!- Worth to TRY!!
The man looked a little worried when the doctor came in to administer his annual physical, so the first thing the doctor did was to ask whether anything was troubling him."Well, to tell the truth, Doc, yes," answered the patient. "You see, I seem to be getting forgetful. No, it's actually worse than that. I can never remember where I park my car, where I'm going, or what it is I'm going to do once I get there -- if I get there. So, I really need your help. What can I do?"
The doctor mused for a moment, then answered kindly, "Pay me in advance."

Actually, forgetfulness isn't all bad...especially when we decide to forget all that pain from the past that threatens to ruin the present. Like one song says, "There ain't no future in the past."The past is to be remembered -- how else will we learn from it and keep from repeating it? But why would I want to remember every time I felt hurt because of my spouse, my children, my friends, my boss or anybody else? Why would I want to fill my mind with a detailed catalogue of past pain? Better to remember the times they brought me joy or love or feelings of warmth. Unfortunately, even those wonderful and magical moments too easily fade away.

A friend of Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross, asked her about a particular traumatic event in her life. Miss Barton seemed perplexed.
"Can't you remember?" the friend prodded.
Clara Barton replied, "I distinctly remember forgetting it."
Dwell on the past -- but not the negative past, not the pain of the past nor the sadness. Dwell on the good. Be consumed by past joys and obsessed with gratitude. Dwell upon the moments that uplifted you, the times you laughed and the memories of love shown to you by friends and family.

Not everything should be remembered, and those who live well know what to forget and what to cherish. Like the song says, "There ain't no future in the past." But there IS joy there. And love.And kindness...if we choose to remember.
Luv,
Viji.

Wonderful week!!

Hi all,
Gm..
Have a wonderful start of week!!!
Belated women's day wishes to all..
This is mail is dedicated to MY mom (who is one of the best woman in MY world).. :)

My Mother

I look back on these years
To see how far I've come and grown,
I take a trip down memory lane,
And what I see has shown ...

That every step I've taken,
You have been there by my side ...
From infancy to adulthood,
We've stood the test of time.

You cradled me and nurtured me,
Through all these many years;
You held me and did comfort me,
Through happiness and tears.

You'd pick me up when I would fall,
You'd dust me off and then,
Encourage me to get back on
That horse and ride again.

Your constant care and loving,
And your warm inviting heart,
Has always been a treasure that
I knew would n'er depart.

If I could be "just half" the person
You have been to me ...
Then you have taught me well dear mom,
For in my heart I see ...

A woman whose most gentle soul,
Embraces me each day ...
A woman whom I dearly love,
Much more than words can say.

Luv,

Viji.

Wonderful mn!!!!

Good mng!!!
Have a cute day ahead!!!




Something to TRY!!!!
There's a big difference between an affirmation and a question. You can repeat affirmations like "I'm happy, I'm happy, I'm happy" all day long, but it won't produce the same state of certainty as consistently asking an empowering question like "What am I happy about now? What could I be happy about now if I wanted to be? How would that make me feel?"
Rather than merely pumping you up, questions direct your focus and get you to come up with real and compelling reasons to feel the emotion. Thus, instead of stating a mere affirmation, you'll experience an actual emotional state change - something real, something that will last.
Luv,
Viji.

Hi all,

small words BIG thought!!!

Is the truth always true?
We are bombarded with information. It comes at us from all-day radio and TV news programs, daily newspapers, emails, podcasts, blogs, and, of course, that ever-expanding external brain, the Internet. The problem is that many of us believe everything we read and hear. Why is that a problem? Because most information is biased and much of it masks a selfish motive. Today, as never before, we need the courage to evaluate what's coming at us and to develop our own interpretation. If we don't do that, we risk falling into the trap of hearsay. And that will keep us from developing an outlook on the world that is right for us.

We read the world wrong and say that it deceives us.
- Rabindranath Tagore

The most erroneous stories are those we think we know best
- and therefore never scrutinize or question.
- Jay Gould

We should always ask ourselves, "Who will benefit from this?" You're having dinner out with some friends and the waiter suggests a special wine. Is it any coincidence that it's from the most expensive bottle on the list? Somebody wants you to invest, promising higher returns than anyone else in the finance industry. If the person is that good, he shouldn't need your money. "Lose 30 pounds in 30 days" sounds good, but it only serves to add weight to someone else's bank account. I like a statement made by Stanislaus of Poland in the 18th century: "To believe with certainty we must begin with doubting."

When somebody is trying to convince you of something, ask a few questions.

Luv,
Viji.
