Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

A professor stood before his Philosophy class and had some items in front of him.When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar.He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.He then asked the students again if the jar was full.
They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.Of course, the sand filled up everything else.He asked once more if the jar was full.The students responded with a unanimous "yes."

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand.

The students laughed.

"Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

"The golf balls are the important things - your God, family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favorite passions - things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

"The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house,and your car."The sand is everything else--the small stuff.

"If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.

"The same goes for life."If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups.Take your partner out to dinner. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a cup of coffee with a friend."

There's no competition in DESTINY, run your own RACE and wish others WELL!

I was jogging one day and I noticed a person in front of me, about 1/4 of mile. I could tell he was running a little slower than me and I thought, good, i shall try to catch him. I had about a mile to go my path before i needed to turn off.

So I started running faster and faster. Every block, I was gaining on him just a little bit. After just a few minutes I was only about 100 yards behind him, so I really picked up the pace and push myself. You would have thought i was running in the last leg of London Olympic competition. I was determined to catch him.

Finally, i did it! I caught and passed him by. On the inside I felt so good. "I beat him" of course, he didn't even know we were racing.

After I passed him, I realized I had been so focused on competing against him that i had missed my turn. I had gone nearly six blocks past it. I had to turn around and go all back. Isn't that what happens in life when we focus on competing with co-workers, neighbors, friends, family, trying to outdo them or trying to prove that we are more successful or more important?

We spend our time and energy running after them and we miss out on our own paths to our God given destinies. The problem with unhealthy competition is that its a never ending cycle.

There will always be somebody ahead of you, someone with better job, nicer car, more money in the bank, more education, a prettier wife, a more handsome husband, better behaved children, etc. But realize that "You can be the best that you can be, you are not competing with no one." Some people are insecure because they pay too much attention 2 what others are doing, where others are going, wearing & driving.

Take what God has given you, the height, weight & personality. Dress well & wear it proudly! You'll be blessed by it. Stay focused and live a healthy life.

Never try to Test Good People.....

Never try to Test Good People.
Because Good People are like Mercury.. 
when U hit them they will not break,
but they just slip away from Ur Life silently.

We're born alone....

We're born alone,
we live alone,
we die alone.
Only through our love and friendship
can we create the illusion for the moment
that we're not alone.

Learn to be optimistic in life.........

Worries at the start of the day mean u r still alive!!

Clothes that don't fit means u have a good appetite.

Tears in ur eyes means there is somebody u care for.

The mess to clean after party means u have friends around u.

Roof that needs fixing means u have got a house.

Taxes to pay means u r not unemployed.

Msg on ur mobile means there is somebody who remembers u.
Learn to be optimistic in life because everything around u happens for a reason..

Keep Smiling :)

Things are to be Used and People are to be Loved......

While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 yr old son picked stone & scratched lines on the side of car. In anger, the man took the child's hand & hit it many times, not realizing he was using a wrench. 

At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures. When the child saw his father...with painful eyes he asked 'Dad when will my fingers grow back?'

 Man was so hurt and speechless. He went back to car and kicked it many times. 

Devastated by his own actions.. sitting in front of the car he looked at the scratches, child had written 'LOVE YOU DAD'. Next day that man committed suicide... 

Anger and Love have no limits...!Always remember that- Things are to be Used and People are to be Loved, but the problem in today's world is that, People are Used and Things are Loved.

Having 'Peace of Mind' is not a strenuous job........

Once Buddha was traveling with a few of his followers.

While they were passing a lake, Buddha told one of his disciples, "I am thirsty. Do get me some water from the lake." The disciple walked up to the lake. At that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake. As a result, the water became very muddy and turbid.
The disciple thought, "How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink?"
So he came back and told Buddha, "The water in there is very muddy. I don't think it is fit to drink."

After about half an hour, again Buddha asked the same disciple to go back to the lake. The disciple went back, and found that the water was still muddy.He returned and informed Buddha about the same. 

After sometime, again Buddha asked the same disciple to go back. This time, the disciple found the mud had settled down,and the water was clean and clear. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha. 

Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the disciple and said, " See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be, and the mud settled down on its own, and you have clear water." Your mind is like that too ! When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don't have to put in any effort to calm it down. It willhappen. It is effortless."

Having 'Peace of Mind' is not a strenuous job, it is an effortless process!
Wish you a peaceful L I F E
