Story: Mistake of Senior Executive

When John D Rockefeller ran the Standard Oil Company one of his senior executives made a mistake that cost over $2 million. 
The other executives thought Rockefeller would come down heavy on him and probably fire him.  But he didn't.  Before he called the man in, 
he sat down, took a notepad and wrote across the top of it: 'Points in favour of this man'.  Then he listed the man's strengths, including how he'd once helped the company make the right decision and earn them millions of dollars.   
One of the senior executives who witnessed it later said, 'Whenever I am tempted to rip into someone, I force myself to sit down and compile a list of the good qualities they have.  By the time I have finished, I have the right perspective.  And best of all, my anger is under control.  I can't tell you how many times this habit has prevented me from committing one of life's costliest mistakes-losing my temper.  I recommend it to anyone who must deal with people.   
So before you jump to conclusions about someone, stop and ask God for wisdom, then sit down and make a list of their best qualities.  If you do you may come to a different conclusion.  One thing is for sure, you'll approach them with the right attitude and you won't say things you'll later regret

Story: From Stress To Strength

Being jobless for the last three months I am depressed now a days. My son has lost his admission from a good school and he might have to go to a less qualitative school. I have moved from a spacious apartment to a less good apartment in order to reduce my living expenses. My wife, being a woman, naturally has built extra stress. On top of that my father in law has died a week ago which has added fuel to fire, putting our family in more miserable state. And now I have met an accident too !!!
In these circumstances I have two mental choices; either to feel depressed and keep thinking about my complications, loosening my peace of mind and impacting my family life OR replace my negative thoughts with 7 super mental powers about self confidence, positivity, consistent courage and implosiveness and keep applying for new jobs with positive momentum. I choose the second option because I believe that that the pain I am undergoing today will empower my character. My strengths will then boost my confidence and make me a successful man one day. I understand that time does not stop and does not remain the same. I understand that good and bad phases are part of the package called life. While good times make me happy; bad times strengthen the 'inner' me. I don't really know how much time it would take to regain my blessings and I don't know the logic on why God has put me in this exam however I believe in the quote which says that God takes men into deep waters not to drown them but to cleanse them. Although my mind cannot fathom the wisdom behind God's decision but I truly believe in His decisions. I also believe in the four spiritual powers; one of them says that whatever is happening is the best thing that could have happened.
After two months:By the grace of God, I have landed on a job which is very exciting, full of professional exposure and offers a nice salary. Time has healed my wife's mental stress due to the death of her father although such kind of demise loss is irreplaceable. My son and daughter have got admission in a good school because the admissions for new academic year were still open !
Overall commentary on this episode of life is that time does not stop and does not remain the same. A person needs to have the resilient approach towards life such that he does not loses his focus from pursuit of happiness and consistently keep applying the great principles of life such as honesty, hard work and positive life approach. Now that I am back on the track of normal life so I can confidently state that the most important things which helped me fight crisis were my consistent trait of patience, firm belief in God and positive attitude towards life applying 7 super mental powers all the times. So, while I wish you all the best life can offer you, I would highly recommend demonstrate the same approach towards life in case you are trapped in any of such situations.
Once again, I wish you all the best !

The Way to Feel Good is to Do Good

The way to feel good is to do good. The way to feel successful is to take the actions that bring about success.

You cannot truly feel what you do not truly live. Be honest and authentic with yourself, with others, and with life, because anything less is just cheating yourself.

Spend this day being a unique and enthusiastic expression of life's goodness. See how much of a positive difference you can make, and experience what a genuine, positive feeling you get from doing so.

Seek to add richness to the lives of others and be delighted at how much richness it brings into your own life. Do something good and useful just because it is the right thing to do, and discover how right it feels.

Let go of the tiresome fight to gain advantage, and direct your energy toward appreciating and creating goodness. Move beyond the need to prove yourself and focus instead on improving all of life.

Give more and more of your own unique goodness to those around you, to the world, and to life. And feel the outstanding richness as it grows increasingly abundant for you.

Are you a lovable person? A Quick Test

1. Do you keep a record of wrong doings of your friend?

2. Are you jealous about your neighbors fortune?
3. Are you proud of your social status?
4. Do you rejoice at the misfortune of your enemy?
5. Are you getting irritated often?

If "YES" - your heart is dry. You are not lovable.

How to Become Unemployed In Six Easy Steps

Here's how to become unemployed in six easy steps:

1. Don't learn anything new.

You're a know-it-all already, right? So whatever you do, be sure not to take a computer class or graphic design workshop. Do not earn your degree or get that designation you've been putting off. And certainly do not become more valuable to your current employer and more appealing to a new employer by using a few of your other 8 hours to boost your skills.

2. Stick to your job description.
If your employer wants you to learn something new, they should pay you more. If they can't afford it, stick to your job description and don't spend any time learning how to do more than that. If there are layoffs at your company, fewer people will need to be able to handle more work. 

3.Say "no" to everything.
Boss asks you to head-up a new project. "No sir" is the answer. Boss wants you to pitch in on a new account. "I'd rather not" is the answer. The less engrained you are in the company and the less involved you are in various projects, the easier it will be to get rid of you. Added bonus . . . when things turn in the economy, you won't get those annoying job offers or promotions.

4. Become invisible.
Don't write memos. Don't bring your boss creative cost-cutting ideas. Don't give workshops. Whatever you do, hide as much as possible and never show your face. This is especially true in a larger company. The fewer people who know you and like you the better.

5. Be negative.
Don't even think about being positive. The economy sucks and life is not fair. You shouldn't have to do three people's jobs. Make sure you are vocal about all of your problems. Bring your bad attitude to work, so you won't have a work to go to.

6. Work fewer hours.

Tough times are tough, so you deserve to work a little less. Don't even think about using some of your other 8 hours to get in earlier or to stay a little later. Find out if your boss (or even better, your boss' boss) is going to be in on the weekend. If so, be sure to brag to them on Monday morning about how you laid around the house all weekend.

There are millions of hardworking folks who sacrificed long hours to their jobs who got laid off. If you follow these six simple steps, you too will be unemployed in no time!

Why Charity is Important

In today's materialistic society, charity is often seen as low priority. However the reality is that the community we live in has a huge influence on us personally – it fosters safety, responsibility and sustainability – so it is important that we take our community seriously for the greater good of humanity and for our own personal benefit. 

Most importantly though, you'll gain an appreciation for what REALLY matters – and it's not fame or fortune! 

After-all, there are many high-profiled people who are great believers in charity and the planet. Bill Gates donates millions of dollars to charities, Bob Geldoff and U2's Bono are great crusaders against world poverty, and many other celebrities offer money and their time to a variety of causes. 

Yes, these people have the money to give and their image has done pretty well out of their endeavours – but at the heart of their generosity is the genuine desire to make a difference. And they do. 

But, you don't need lots of money or fame to contribute to the community – we all can. 

It is my honest belief that we should all help those less fortunate than ourselves – and trust me, if you have the resources to be able to read this article on-line, then there are lots of people out there who are less fortunate! 

Whether this help is financial through appropriate donations or through donating your time as a volunteer doesn't really matter, but we should all feel some social responsibility to do something. 

Everyone can do something. YOU can do something. If you don't have the time, DONATE. If you can't afford to donate money, VOLUNTEER and offer your time or services. 

Making Donations 

As a general guide, aim to donate 10% of your income to charity. You may have heard the phrase, "Charity starts at home" – so make sure your budget can afford it! 

Pick a cause that you believe in the most – all charities are worthwhile, but which ones are YOU passionate about? Go help them, help them on week
