  • 1. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company You have two choices
  • 2. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company Jerry is the manager of a restaurant. He is always in a good mood.
  • 3. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would always reply,
  • 4. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company "If I were any better, I would be twins!"
  • 5. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company Many of the waiters at his restaurant quit their jobs when he changed jobs,
  • 6. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company so they could follow him around from restaurant to restaurant
  • 7. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En Why ?
  • 8. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company Because Jerry was a natural motivator.
  • 9. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry was always there, telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.
  • 10. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Jerry and asked him :
  • 11. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company "I don't get it! No one can be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?"
  • 12. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En Jerry replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to myself, I have two choices today. I can choose to be in a good mood or I can choose to be in a bad mood.
  • 13. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En I always choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be victim or I can choose to learn from it. I always choose to learn from it.
  • 14. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I always choose the positive side of life."
  • 15. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company "But it's not always that easy,“ I protested.
  • 16. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company "Yes it is," Jerry said.
  • 17. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En "Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk every situation is a choice.
  • 18. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. It's your choice how you live your life."
  • 19. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company Several years later,
  • 20. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En I heard that Jerry accidentally did something you are never supposed to do in the restaurant business.
  • 21. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company He left the back door of his restaurant open
  • 22. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En And then ???
  • 23. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En In the morning, he was robbed by three armed men.
  • 24. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En They want?
  • 25. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company #123*+!@$%&*~
  • 26. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En While Jerry trying to open the safe box,
  • 27. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En his hand, shaking from nervousness, slipped off the combination. The robbers panicked and shot him.
  • 28. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En Luckily, Jerry was found quickly and rushed to the hospital.
  • 29. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En After 18 hours of surgery
  • 30. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En and weeks of intensive care,
  • 31. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En Jerry was released from the hospital with fragments of the bullets still in his body. …
  • 32. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En I saw Jerry about six months after the accident.
  • 33. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En When I asked him how he was,
  • 34. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En he replied, "If I were any better, I'd be twins. Want to see my scars?"
  • 35. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through his mind as the robbery took place.
  • 36. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company "The first thing that went through my mind was that I should have locked the back door," Jerry replied.
  • 37. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad Engineering Company "Then, after they shot me, as I lay on the floor, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or could choose to die. I chose to live."
  • 38. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En "Weren't you scared“ I asked?
  • 39. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En Jerry continued, "The paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine.
  • 40. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En But when they wheeled me into the Emergency Room and I saw the expression on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared.
  • 41. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En In their eyes, I read 'He's a dead man.'
  • 42. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En I knew I needed to take action."
  • 43. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En "What did you do?" I asked.
  • 44. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En "Well, there was a big nurse shouting questions at me," said Jerry. "She asked if I was allergic to anything."
  • 45. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En 'Yes,' I replied.
  • 46. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply.
  • 47. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En I took a deep breath
  • 48. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En and yelled, 'Bullets!'
  • 49. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En Over their laughter, I told them,
  • 50. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En 'I am choosing to live. Please operate on me as if I am alive, not dead'.
  • 51. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En "Jerry lived thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude.
  • 52. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En I learned from him that
  • 53. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En every day you have the choice to either enjoy your life or to hate it.
  • 54. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En The only thing that is truly yours -- that no one can control or take from you-
  • 55. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En is your attitude,
  • 56. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En so if you can take care of that, everything else in life becomes much easier.
  • 57. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En Now you have two choices to make:
  • 58. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En 1. You can delete this message or 2. You can forward it to someone you care about.
  • 59. www.Emtedad.net Source: Internet Distribution: Emtedad En I hope you will choose #2. I did.
