The Blind Boy...LIFE Lessons

  1. 1. PLEASE HELP The Blind Boy ... Life Lessons
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. There were only a few coins in the hat.
  4. 4. 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.
  5. 5. Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy.
  6. 6. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, ”Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?” That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were.
  7. 7. The man said, “I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a way.” DIFFERENT
  8. 8. What he had written was: "Today is a day and I cannot see it." Beautiful
  9. 9. 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.
  10. 10. 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.
  11. 11. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?
  12. 12. There are LIFE lessons we can learn from this simple story.
  13. 13. “ Be thankful for what you have. Someone else has less. Help where you can.”
  14. 14. “ Be . Be . Think . THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY!”
  15. 15. Invite others towards good with wisdom. Live life with no excuse and love with no regrets. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.
  16. 16. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.
  17. 17. Life has to be an incessant process of repair and reconstruction, of discarding evil and developing goodness....
  18. 18. In the journey of life, if you want to travel without fear, you must have the ticket of a good conscience.
  19. 19. The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling... And even more beautiful is, knowing that you are the reason behind it!!!
  20. 20. The End May You Be Well And Happy! May You Grow In Compassion And Wisdom
