Be Focused :: Short Motivational Message

An ancient Indian sage was teaching his disciples the art of archery. He put a wooden bird as the target and asked them to aim at the eye of the bird.

The first disciple was asked to describe what he saw. He said, "I see the trees, the branches, the leaves, the sky, the bird and its eye..."

The sage asked this disciple to wait. Then he asked the second disciple the same question and he replied, "I only see the eye of the bird."

The sage said, "Very good, then shoot." The arrow went straight and hit the eye of the bird.

:: Moral of the Story ::

Unless we focus, we cannot achieve our goal.

It is hard to focus and concentrate, but it is a skill that can be learned.

Be Creative... Better Ways! - Awesome Short Story

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: "I am blind, please help." There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, "Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?"

The man said, "I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.

What he had written was: "Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it."

Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing? Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply told people to help by putting some money in the hat. The second sign told people that they were able to enjoy the beauty of the day, but the boy could not enjoy it because he was blind. The first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

:: Moral of the Story ::

Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently. THERE IS ALWAYS A BETTER WAY!

Be thankful for what you have. Someone else has less. Help where you can and make it great for the needful.
