  2. 2. Worry free day There are two days in every week about which we should not worry: One of these days is Yesterday with all its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone forever. The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promiand its poor performance; Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control. Tomorrows sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet to be born. This leaves only one day, Today. Any person can fight the battle of just one day. It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down. Live one day at a time !Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 2Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer

  4. 4. Heart is beautiful garden Once a Junior School teacher asked her students to bring some potatoes in a plastic bag to school. Each potato will be given a name of the person whom that child hates. Like this, the number of potatoes will be equal to the number of persons they hate. On a decided day the children brought their potatoes well addressed. Some had two, some had three and some had even five potatoes. The teacher said they have to carry these potatoes with them everywhere they go for a week. As the days passed the children started to complain about the spoiled smell that started coming from these potatoes. Also some students who had many potatoes complained that it was very heavy to carry them all around. The children got rid of this assignment after a week, when it got over. The teacher asked, " How did you feel in this one week? “ The children discussed their problems about the smell and weight. Then the teacher said, This situation is very similar to what you carry in your heart when you dont like some people. This hatred makes your heart unhealthy and you carry that hatred in your heart everywhere you go. If you cannot bear the smell of spoiled potatoes for a week, imagine the impact of this hatred that you carry throughout your life, on your heart?" Morale: Our Heart is a beautiful garden that needs a regular cleaning of unwanted weeds. Forgive those who have not behaved with you as expected and forget the bad things. This also makes room available for storing good things.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 4Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  5. 5. Focus on getting a solution Faith enables one to bring solutions to problems. When problems come, we tend to overreact to it or exaggerate it to such an extent that it becomes a trap for us, Instead of working on the problem we fall prey to it making all our thoughts negative. Once we ore caught up in negativity we will neither look for, nor find solutions. Each thought of ours is important when working on a problem. Instead of making our thoughts negative, we need to remind ourselves that what we are going through is a test which we must pass with honor. When we have this thought, all our energy will be focused on working to bring a solution.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 5Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  6. 6. Ant’s philosophy All of us tend to look up to big people for lessons on how to get better. We are keen to learn the secrets of their success. But we forget that sometimes the biggest lessons in life come from the smallest folks around us. Now that’s a good lesson to remember! Take ants for instance. Would you believe those small creatures can teach us how to live a better life? Here are the four lessons from ‘Ants Philosophy’. 1.Ants never quit. how ants always look for a way around an obstacle? Put your finger in an ant’s path and it will try and go around it, or over it. It will keep looking for a way out. It won’t just stand there and stare. It won’t give up and go back. We should all learn to be like that. There will always be obstacles in our lives. The challenge is to keep trying, keep looking for alternative routes to get to our goals. “Never, never give up!” 1.Ants think winter all summer. Remember the old story of the ant and the grasshopper? In the middle of summer, the ant was busy gathering food for the winter ahead – while the grasshopper was out having a good time. Ants know that summer - the good times – won’t last forever. Winters will come. That’s a good lesson to remember. When the going is good, don’t be so arrogant as to believe that a crisis or a setback cannot happen to you. Be good to other people. Save for a rainy day. Look ahead. And remember, good times may not last, but good people do. 3. Ants think summer all winter. As they suffer through the unbearable cold of the winter, ants keep reminding themselves that it won’t last forever, and that summer will soon be here. And with the first rays of the summer sun, the ants come out – ready to work, ready to play. When we are down, when we go through never-ending crisis, it’s good to remind ourselves that this too shall pass. Good times will come. 4. Ants do all they possibly can. How much food does an ant gather in summer? All that it possibly can! Now that’s a great work ethic to have. Do all you can! One ant doesn’t worry about how much food another ant is collecting. Nor does it complain about the poor pay! Ants just do their bit. Success and happiness are usually the result of giving 100% - doing all you possibly can. If you look around you, you’ll find that successful people are those who just do all, they possibly can.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 6Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  7. 7. Find True Joy Using Your Potential Your greatest success and happiness in life will be found when you use your natural abilities to their fullest extent. Happiness Is not having or being. Its in the doing. The essence of true wisdom is to know that rest is rust, and that real life is activity, laughter, and love. You were created to conquer your environment, to solve problems, and to achieve goals. You’ll find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve. Yes, there is true happiness. Its found in doing a job well done, in achieving a worthy goal, in putting your child to sleep, and in writing the last line of your poem. Your personal growth itself contains the seed of happiness.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 7Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  8. 8. Enjoy the dance Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground? Ever followed a butterflys erratic flight Or gazed at the sun into the fading night? You better slow down, Dont dance so fast, Time is short - The music wont last Do you run through each day on the fly? When you ask "How are you?" Do you hear the reply? When the day is done, do you lie In your bed with the next hundred chores running through your head? Youd better slow down, Dont dance so fast Time is short - The music wont last Ever told your child, Well do it tomorrow And in your haste, not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch, Let a good friendship die ‘Cause you never had time to call and say "HI"? Youd better slow down, Dont dance so fast, Time is short, The music wont last When you run so fast to get somewhere You miss half the fun of getting there. When you worry & hurry through your day, It is like an unopened gift ..Thrown away Life is not a race, Do take it slower…Hear the music before your song is over.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 8Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  9. 9. Power of love There is no thinking person Who can stand untouched today And view the world around us drifting downward to decay Without feeling deep within them a silent unnamed dread, Wondering how to stem the chaos that lies frightfully ahead .. . But the problems we are facing cannot humanly be solved For our diplomatic strategy only gets us more involved And our skillful ingenuity, our technology and science Can never change a sinful heart filled with hatred and defiance ... So our problems keep on growing every hour of every day As man vainly tries to solve them in his own SELF-WILLFUL WAY ... But man is powerless alone to CLEAN UP THE WORLD OUTSIDE ... Until his own polluted soul is CLEAN and FREE INSIDE ... For the amazing power of love is beyond all comprehension And it alone can heal this world of its hatred and dissentionEdge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 9Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  10. 10. Persistence not failure Everyone meets failure in their journey through life. To overcome failure, you need to concentrate and focus your energy on your goal. If you dont succeed the first time, try another way. We are easily distracted or side-tracked by working on areas that bear no relation to our goal. Keep your goal focused in your mind at all Times. Put your energy and effort into completing Tasks that move you closer to your goal. Even if you set aside only 30 minutes a day, you are being persistent and consistently moving closer and closer to your goal. Ask yourself if you have been defeated by your own lock of persistence without realizing it. Step back and take a hard look at how persistent you have really been.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 10Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  11. 11. Go .. get more… You do not grow old simply by living a certain number of years. You grow old only when you stop filling those years with new substance and value. Dont spend all your time and energy merely confirming again and again what you already know. That will make you too old too soon. Instead, put your effort & energy into learning, discovering & experiencing what you do not yet know. That will keep your life young, fresh & vibrant, even as the years continue to progress. There are all kinds of new things you can learn today. There are all sorts of great ways to challenge your assumptions and increase your wisdom. If you think you know it all, youre cheating yourself out of the opportunity to continually build upon your knowledge If you refuse to challenge your beliefs, those beliefs will begin to imprison you rather than support you. Treasure the knowledge you possess and all the rich experiences youve had. Then get up, get out there and get a whole lot more.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 11Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer

Take sometime today to identify some of those ways in your own life.Once you do, you can put the "lazies" behind you and look forward to active andenergetic days ahead.Goals provide the energy source that powers our lives.Once of the best ways we can get the most from the energy we have us to focus it.

  14. 14. Garbage lawHow often do you let other peoples nonsense change your mood ????Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive employee ruin your day?However, the mark of a successful person is how quickly one can get back their focus on whatsimportant.Experience: We were driving in taxi in the right lane when, all of a sudden, a black car jumpedout of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, andmissed the other cars back end by just inches! The driver of the other car, who almost caused abig accident, whipped his head around & he started yelling bad words at us. My taxi driver Justsmiled and waved at the guy. And I mean .. . he was friendly. So, I said, "Why did you Just dothat? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!" And this is when my taxi drivertold me, "The Law of the Garbage Truck.“"Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full ofanger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it. And ifyou let them, theyll dump it on you. When someone wants to dump on you, dont take itpersonally. You just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Youll be happy you did.“I started thinking, how often do I let Garbage Trucks run right over me? & how often do I taketheir garbage & spread it to other people: at work, at home, on the streets? It was that day I said,"Im not going to do it anymore.” Lifes too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. Love thepeople who treat you right. Forget about the ones who dont. Believe that everything happens fora reason. Never let the garbage truck run over you .....Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 14Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  15. 15. Happy new year May God make your year a happy one! Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain, But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes; Not by making your path easy,’ But by making you sturdy to travel any path; Not by taking hardships from you, But by taking you unbroken sunshine, But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows; Not by making your life always pleasant, But by showing you when people and their causes need you most, & by making you anxious to be there to help GODs LOVE, PEACE, HOPE & JOY To you for the year ahead.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 15Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  16. 16. Family What makes a family grow through the years? - share the good times, the bad times, the laughter, the tears. What binds family members that fill us with love, that give hope to our future, with Gods help above. Its a feeling inside that connects to our hearts, Its the lords own promise, we never will part.

  17. 17. Prescription of happiness • Make up your mind to be happy. Learn to find pleasure in simple things. • Make the best of your circumstances. No one has everything and everyone has something of sorrow intermingled with the gladness of life. • The trick is to make the laughter outweigh the tears. Dont take yourself too seriously. • You cant please everybody ; dont let criticism worry you. • Dont let your neighbor set your standards . • Do the things you enjoy doing, but stay out of debt. • Dont borrow trouble. Imaginary things are harder to bear than the actual ones. • Since hate poisons the soul, do not cherish enmities and grudges. • Dont hold post-mortems. Dont spend your life brooding over sorrows and mistakes. • Dont be one who never gets over things . • Do what you can for those less fortunate than yourself. • Keep busy at something. A very busy person never has time to be unhappy.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 17Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  18. 18. Slow down If you live inside an out-of-control- schedule, like trying to cram three days of work into one, the personal toll is high. Undoubtedly, your stress levels are high and you feel overwhelmed. Its ok to slow down & pace yourself. The truth is youll accomplish more if you set a reasonable pace; one that you can maintain for the long haul. Dont forget to schedule time to relax and refresh your body, soul, and spirit. Dinner with friends, a long walk or even a relaxing bubble bath will do wonders in letting go and grounding yourself. You deserve balance in your life. Its up to you to make it happen.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 18Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  19. 19. Words of strengths Think about getting rich, friendships are priceless, time is invaluable, health is wealth, and love is a treasure. Create a nest egg of beautiful memories that you can dip into from time to time to ease any sorrows. Have the kind of remembrances that raise you up with their worth and keep you there with their wonder. Always have a secret supply of hopes on hand to help you plan your tomorrow. Remember that when you invest in your dreams it is impossible to overpay. Give away smiles, & watch them come back to you a hundred times over. Stuff your pockets with kindness and optimism; there is nothing more precious in the world.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 19Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  20. 20.

  21. 21. Seeds of success People often handle life as they do bad weather, They while away the time waiting for It to stop. Yet the tide of opportunity comes to everyone. Opportunity knocks all the time, But youve got to be ready for it. When your chance comes, You must have the equipment to take advantage of it. The race is not to the swift Or the battle to the strong, For time and chance happen to everyone. Take a second look at what appears To be someones "good luck." Youll find not luck but preparation, Planning and success-producing thinking. When youre prepared for opportunity Your chance for success is sure to come. The season of failure is the best time For sowing the seeds of success.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 21Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
  22. 22. Gautam Buddha says It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell. The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground. An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that only exists only as an idea. Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him. To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to ones family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control ones own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.Edge-Aggressive-Reliable-Trust-Honesty-Soft-Obedient-Fun-Transparent 22Copyright@2007-confidentialContact – Making earth little softer
