Be a Winner for LIFE!!

A drunk loses the keys to his house and is looking for them under a lamppost. A policeman comes over and asks what he’s doing.

“I’m looking for my keys” he says. “I lost them over there”.

The policeman looks puzzled. “Then why are you looking for them all the way over here?”

“Because the light here is so much better”.

We all look for things where the light is better, rather than where we’re more likely to find them.

Don’t just set specific goals. Resolve to be receptive to the opportunities life presents to you.

Open your eyes. Say yes more often.

Don’t wear blinders on your only adventure.

Be a Winner for LIFE!!

If you think, you are always right, you are absolutely wrong and will be left alone.

Triple filter test of Socrates.

In ancient Greece (469 – 399 BC), Socrates was well known for his wisdom and knowledge. One day the Socrates came upon an acquaintance who ran up to him excitedly and said, “Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?”

“Wait a moment,” Socrates replied. “Before you tell me I’d like you to pass a little test. It’s called the Triple filter test .”

“Triple filter test?”

“That’s right,” Socrates continued. “Before you talk to me about my student let’s take a moment to test what you’re going to say. The first test is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?”

No,” the man said, “actually I just heard about It.”

“All right,” said Socrates. “So you don’t really know if it’s true or not. Now let’s try the second test, the test of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student something good?”

“No, on the contrary…”

“So,” Socrates continued, “you want to tell me something bad about him even though you’re not certain it’s true?”

The man shrugged, a little embarrassed.

Socrates continued. “You may still pass though, b ecause there is a third test – the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?”

“No, not really.”

“Well,” concluded Socrates, “if what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me at all?”

The man was defeated and ashamed.

You cannot get miracles if you fail to see that every breath, every heartbeat, every interaction is a miracle.  The “big show,” we all want to witness, is not profound in nature, rather it is gentle breezes, gurgling streams and quiet nights.  Miracles are the ease and grace with which life moves and all of it is the miracle you seek.  Look not for wonders; you already stand in their midst.  Beautiful day!  Carl

In the jungle which animal is the biggest ……..

I heard you say, Elephant.

In the jungle which animal is the tallest ……..

I heard you say, Giraffe.

In the jungle which animal is the wisest ……..

I heard you say, Fox.

In the jungle which animal is the fastest ……..

I heard you say, Cheetahs.

Among all these wonderful qualities mentioned, where is the Lion in the picture.?

Yet, you say the Lion is the KING of the jungle even without ANY of these qualities.!!

Why??

Because…

The Lion is courageous.
The Lion is very bold
The Lion is always ready to face any challenges, any barrier that crosses his path, no matter how big/bad they are.
The Lion walks with confidence.
The Lion dares anything and is never afraid.
The Lion believes he is unstoppable.
The Lion is a risk taker.
The Lion believes any animal is food for him.
The Lion *believes any opportunity is worth giving a try and never lets it slip from his hands*.
The Lion has charisma.!!


So…

What is it that we get to learn from the Lion ??

• You don’t need to be the fastest.

• You don’t need to be the wisest.

• You don’t need to be the smartest.

• You don’t need to be the most brilliant.

• You don’t need to be generally accepted to achieve your dreams and be great in life.!!

• All you need is *courage*

• All you need is *boldness*

• All you need is the will to try.

• All you need is the faith to believe it is possible.

• All you need is to believe in yourself, that *you can* do it.!!

It’s TIME to bring out the Lion in you..!!

Stay motivated.
