A Compliment Of The Season!

Ex. President Of India Dr. Abdul Kalam Says: “When I was a kid, my Mom cooked food for us. One night in particular when she had made dinner after a long hard day’s work, Mom placed a plate of ‘subzi’ and extremely burnt roti in front of my Dad.

I was waiting to see if anyone noticed the burnt roti. But Dad just ate his roti and asked me how was my day at school. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember I heard Mom apologising to Dad for the burnt roti.

And I’ll never forget what he said: “Honey, I love burnt roti.

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy, good night & I asked him if he really liked his roti burnt. He wrapped me in his arms & said: “Your momma put in a long hard day at work today and she was really tired. And besides… A burnt roti never hurts anyone but HARSH WORDS DO!

“You know son – life is full of imperfect things… & imperfect people…”

I’M NOT THE BEST & AM HARDLY GOOD AT ANYTHING! I forget birthdays & anniversaries just like everyone else.

What I’ve learnt over the years is: To Accept Each Others Faults & Choose To Celebrate Relationships.”

Life Is Too Short To Wake Up With Regrets. Love the people who treat you right & have compassion for the ones who don’t.

SEVEN LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLES TO LEARN FROM AN EAGLE!

1. Eagles fly Alone and at High Altitudes.
They don’t fly with sparrows, ravens, and other small birds.

MEANING; Stay away from narrow-minded people, those that bring you down. Eagle flies with Eagles. Keep good company.
2. Eagles have an Accurate Vision. 

They have the ability to focus on something as far as 5km away. No matter the obstacles, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it.
MEANING; Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacles and you will succeed.
3. Eagles do not Eat Dead things. They Feed only on Fresh Prey.
MEANING; Do not rely on your past success, keep looking for new frontiers to conquer. Leave your past where it belongs, in the past.
4. Eagles Love the Storm.

When clouds gather, the eagle gets excited, the eagle uses the storms wind to lift itself higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the eagle uses the raging storm to lift itself above the clouds. This gives the eagle an opportunity to glide and rest its wings. In the meantime, all the other birds hide in the branches and leaves of the tree.
MEANING; Face your challenges head on knowing that these will make you emerge stronger and better than you were. We can use the storms of life to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid of challenges, rather they relish them and use them profitably.
5. When a Female Eagle Meets a Male Eagle and they want to mate, she flies down to earth, picks a twig and flies back into the air with the male eagle in hot pursuit. Once she has reached a height high enough for her, she drops the twig and let it fall to the ground while she watches. The male eagle chases after the twig and catches it before it reached the ground, then bring it back to the female eagle. The female eagle grabs the twig and flies to a much higher altitude and drops the twig again for the male eagle to chase. This goes on for hours with the height increasing each time until the female eagle is assured that the male eagle has mastered the art of picking the twig which shows commitment. Then and only then will she allow him to mate with her.
MEANING; Whether in private life or business, one should test the commitment of the people intended for partnership.
6. Eagles Prepare for Training!
They remove the feathers and soft grass in the nest so that the young ones get uncomfortable in preparation for flying and eventually flies when it becomes unbearable to stay in the nest.

MEANING; Leave your Comfort Zone, there is No Growth there.

7. When the Eagle Grows Old!

His feathers becomes weak and cannot take him as fast and as high as it should. This makes him weak and could make him die. So he retires to a place far away in the mountains. While there, he plucks out the weak feathers on his body and breaks its beaks and claws against the rocks until he is completely bare; a very bloody and painful process. Then he stays in this hiding place until he has grown new feathers, new beaks and claws and then he comes out flying higher than before.
MEANING; We occasionally need to shed off old habit no matter how difficult, things that burden us or add no value to our lives should be let go of.

YES, NEVER GIVE UP!

BE AN EAGLE, NEVER EVER GIVE UP!👍🏻

Thank God Everyday! #GodBless #GodIsGreat 🙏

Rich man looked through his window and saw a poor man picking something from his dustbin. He said, Thank GOD I’m not poor.

The poor man looked around and saw a naked man misbehaving on the street. He said, Thank GOD I’m not mad.

The mad man looked ahead and saw an ambulance carrying a patient. He said, Thank GOD am not sick.

Then a sick person in hospital saw a trolley taking a dead body to the mortuary. He said, Thank GOD I’m not dead.

Only a dead person cannot thank God.

Why don’t you thank GOD today for all your blessings and for the gift of life for another beautiful day.

Thank God

What is LIFE?

To understand life better, you have to go to 3 locations :

1. Hospital

2. Prison

3. Cemetery

🏥 At the Hospital, you will understand that nothing is more beautiful than HEALTH.

🔐 In the Prison, you’ll see that FREEDOM is the most precious thing.

💐 At the Cemetery, you will realize that life is worth nothing. The ground that we walk today will be our roof tomorrow.

Sad Truth: We all come with nothing and we will go with nothing. Let us, therefore, remain humble and be thankful & grateful to God at all times for everything!

Value of the tomatoes! 

​Valuable lesson for all the devotees. You may also try at your home. It works! 

🍅A teacher asked her students to bring some tomatoes in a plastic bag to school. 

🍅Each tomato was to be given the name of a person whom that child hates.

🍅So, the number of tomatoes would be equal to the number of persons they hate. 

🍅On a pre-determined day, All the children brought their tomatoes well addressed. 

🍅Some had two, some had three and some had five, some even had 20 tomatoes in accordance with the number of people they hated.

🍅The teacher then told them they had to carry the tomatoes with them everywhere they go for two weeks. 

🍅As the days passed the children started to complain about the decay and smell of the tomatoes. 

🍅The students who had many tomatoes complained it was very heavy to carry and the smell was too much.

🍅After a week, the teacher asked the students “How did you feel this week?” 

🍅The children complained of the awful smell and heavy weight of the tomatoes, especially those who carried several tomatoes. 

🍅The teacher said, “This is very similar to what you carry in your heart when you don’t like some people. 

🍅Hatred makes the heart unhealthy and you carry that hatred everywhere. 

🍅 If you can’t bear the smell of spoilt tomatoes for a week, imagine the impact of bitterness on your heart as you carry it daily.”

🍅The heart is a beautiful garden that needs regular cleaning of unwanted weeds. 

🍅 Forgive those who have angered you. 

🍅This makes room for storing good THINGS (Love for Krishna)

Forgiveness is the quality of Vaishnava. It will help you to Chant the names of Krishna with full surrender. Take full shelter of Krishna. Krishna wants better devotees!!! Not bitter devotees!!!

Forget and Forgive.

🍅 Get Better, Not Bitter!

Chant; Chant; Chant.

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.
