Devotion and Productivity Go Hand-In-Hand

Devotion and Productivity Go Hand-In-Hand Once upon a time, an old man was walking down a beach when he noticed a little boy throwing something in the sea. He walked up to the boy and inquired, “My dear son, what are you doing here so early in the morning?” without stopping to look at the old man, the boy replied, “Hello sir, I am throwing these jellyfish back in the sea. A bunch of them washed up on the shore last night, they will surely die if the sun comes up and they are not in the water so, I am trying to put them all back in the sea.” The old man smiled at the folly of the little boy. He looked at the number of jellyfish and reasoned, “But this is absurd, there are hundreds of jellyfish here, you possibly cannot throw all of them in water before>>>

The Power of Positive Thinking

  The Power of Positive Thinking ‘’The mind is its own place and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.’’ ~ John Milton On 24th December 2007, St. John’s Memorial Hospital was buzzing with news of Ward No. 5’s recovery. Despite it being Christmas Eve, the nurses and doctors alike were seen running over to congratulate the doctor.  Everyone wished to witness this Christmas miracle before they headed home. What was this miracle you ask? Well, it all began on a fateful May morning… On the surface, it had been just another day for Margaret Marshall. She was running around the house searching for her bags and books. Her mother was calling her for breakfast and she could already see the school bus getting smaller from her window. ‘’Are you running late again, magpie?’’ asked her Mrs. Marshall, as she peeked out from her room. ‘’>>>

Life Is Not a Competition

Life Is Not a Competition Can you name the happiest man on earth? What do you think he owns? You probably think about the luxuries in life. He may be a billionaire with a huge mansion and a fleet of cars. Or you think about a celebrity who is almost as rich and oh-so-famous! Then as kids, we believed that we’d be happy when we came first in class or won a race or got praised in front of everyone. It was all about being the ‘best’ and owning the fanciest, flashiest ‘stuff’. It seems that we have been ingrained with a competitive mindset. Darwin speaks of the ‘survival of the fittest’, doesn’t he? It is our natural instinct to cutthroats and then move forward. This is probably why we have play life like a game. This was the scenario when I entered the halls of my alma mater. The>>>

The Wall of Kindness

The Wall of Kindness Walls have always been built to divide and segregate people but did you know that there is a wall that can bring people together as well? Well, the wall of kindness not only brings people together but also helps those in need! The idea behind the wall of kindness is simple and the two-liner motto describes it perfectly, “take if you need” and “leave if you don’t!” You simply leave clothing articles that you do not need for those who require them. It is simply a clean wall in a public place to which hooks are attached. People who wish to donate clothing items can leave them hanging there so anyone can take them. The idea of the wall of kindness was originated in Iran to help the homeless people of Mashhad in surviving the cold winter weather. With the sanctions imposed by the western world>>>

My Journey Back to Light

My Journey Back to Light At an alcoholics anonymous meeting, Jack Davidson shared his transforming tale. The way he fought against all odds and became the motivational speaker he is today. What is his secret? According to him, it is the fact that he never loses the sight of light. He explains what this light in the story below: ‘What are you most afraid of? Is it the failure? Or maybe it is death? Do you still keep the night lamp on for fear of the dark? Like many people, darkness scares me but it is not the childlike phobia of the monsters lurking underneath nor is it the absence of light. I am afraid of the inner darkness that engulfs our souls…that makes us stray from the straight path and delves us deep into the alley of chaos. They say that addiction often runs in our veins. My father>>>
