Responsibility & Thoughts by Swami Vivekananda

We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.

- Swami Vivekananda

Man and Life by Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered 

"Man. Because he scarifies his health in order to make money.
Then he scarifies money to recuperate his health.
And he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die,
and then dies having never really lived."

Stress Management - Short storey

The Professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it.
He held it up for all to see & asked the students "How much do you think
this glass weighs?"

'100gms!'..... '150gms!' .....'200gms' ...the students answered.

"I really don't know unless I weigh it," said the professor, "but, my
question is:
What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?"

'Nothing' ...the students said.

'Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?' the professor
asked.

'Your arm would begin to ache' said one student.

"You're right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?"

"Your arm could go numb; you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis &
have to go to hospital for sure!"

... Ventured another student & all the students laughed "Very good.

But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?" Asked the
professor.

'No'.. Was the answer.
"Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?"

The students were puzzled.
"What should I do now to come out of pain?" asked professor again.

"Put the glass down!" said one of the students "Exactly!" said the
professor.

Life's problems are something like this.

Hold it for a few minutes in your head & they seem OK.
Think of them for a long time & they begin to ache.

Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do
anything.

It's important to think of the challenges or problems in your life, But EVEN
MORE IMPORTANT is to 'PUT THEM DOWN' at the end of every day before you go
to sleep...

That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh & strong & can
handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!

So, when you start your day today, Remember friend to 'PUT THE GLASS DOWN'

Make it happen - Michael Jordan


Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.


Felix Baumgartner




Felix Baumgartner

has become the first skydiver to go faster than the speed of sound, reaching a maximum velocity of 833.9mph (1,342km/h).

After flying to an altitude of 39,045 meters (128,100 feet) in a helium-filled balloon, Felix Baumgartner completed a record breaking jump from the edge of space, exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager first broke the sound.

Some people are born to break the record and push the limits to extreme where no one has ever tried it before. They dare to do it by taking risk of life!

Nick Vujicic


Physical Challenge didn't stop him


About Nick Vujicic

(From Wiki) Nicholas James Vujicic (born 4 December 1982) is a Serbian Australian evangelist and motivational speaker born with tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterised by the absence of all four limbs. As a child, he struggled mentally and emotionally as well as physically, but eventually came to terms with his disability and, at the age of seventeen, started his own non-profit organisation, Life Without Limbs. Vujicic presents motivational speeches worldwide, on life with a disability, hope and finding meaning in life. He also speaks about his belief that God can use any willing heart to do his work and that God is big enough to overcome any and all disabilities.
Although he is physically challenged with his strong will, determination and faith he did over come the physical challenge with mental strength and became most successful in life than an ordinary person.

How did he succeed?

He focused mind on what he could rather what he don't have. He shifted thoughts to POSSIBILITIES from negative to positive. Instead of thinking WHY IT CAN'T BE DONE, HE THINK HOW IT CAN BE DONE?

Follow your heart by Steve Jobs

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

- Steve jobs
