Here we are, afraid of losing what we have all the time, holding on to it so tight that not a soul can touch it.. We think by hiding it from the world, it’s hidden and it’s ours. Nothing is. Nothing ever will be.. For, nothing ever was..
If you think there is anything that you have, that’s yours, be it money, a house, a job, or a girlfriend.. it’s nothing but an illusion.. It’ll all disappear.. in one blow .
One blow, my man. Here we are, so insecure that we are afraid of re-starting our lives, so we just carry on trying to sort out the current mess.. The thought that we should give it all up and just start all over with nothing might cross our minds some time, sure, but we get scared and we push away anything that scares us..
There is nothing I can ever achieve or gain that I cannot lose, in a matter of seconds.. You have never gained enough to not be able to lose it all, in just a few minutes..
What you think is yours, was never yours and will never be yours.. Whatever you make here, you leave here.. You came naked and you’re going to go back naked..
So what are you afraid of ? Let all be lost.. Let them take away everything.. As long as you have your heart beating strong, as long as you have your nostrils working fine, as long as the blood flows in your veins, you will live, you will breathe and you can get it all back.. again and again.. For, if you can do it once, you can damn well do it again.. It’s just a game we play Life..
There was a King who had one Eye and one leg. He asked all the painters to draw a beautiful portrait of him. But none of them could because how could they paint him beautifully with the defects in one eye and one leg.
Eventually one of them agreed and drew a classic picture of the King.
It was a fantastic picture and surprised everyone…
He painted the King AIMING for a HUNT. Targeting with ONE Eye Closed and One Leg Bent….
MORAL : Why cant we all paint pictures like this for others. Hiding their weaknesses and highlighting their strength….. _____
Value-A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill.
In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this $20 bill ?” Hands started going up.
He said,. “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this. ” He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up.
He then asked, “Who still wants it? “Still the hands were up in the air. “Well,”. he replied, “What if I do this ?” And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty. “Now who still wants it ?” Still the hands went into the air.
“My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.
We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special – Don’t ever forget it!”
Some people are born with high levels of emotional intelligence, but most of us have to work at it.
The ability to keep emotions in check during stressful situations can really make or break your career. Flipping out and yelling at your boss will likely get you fired.
Even if you manage to retain your job, the incident will always be in the back of your co-worker’s minds, and your boss will recall the outburst when it comes time for promotions.
It’s important to pay attention to signs of stress and anxiety. Knots in your stomach or the inability to sleep may indicate that stress is building up. Being aware of this buildup can help you to take a step back from the situation and assess your options for reaction…..
