> Without self-respect there can be no genuine success. Success won at the cost of self-respect is no success. For what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own self-respect.  – By Forbes, B. C.

> Good or Bad, hard to say!

Once upon a time, there was a king. The king liked one of his followers very much because he was very wise and always gave very useful advice. Therefore the king took him along wherever he went.

One day, the king was bitten by a dog, the finger was injured and the wound was getting worse. He asked the follower if that was a bad sign. The follower said, Good or bad, hard to say’. In the end, the finger of the king was too bad that had to be cut. The king asked the follower again if that was a bad sign. Again, the follower gave the same answer, ‘Good or bad, hard to say’. The king became very angry and sent the follower to prison..

One day, the king went hunting in the jungle. He got excited when he was on the chase of a deer. Deeper and deeper he went inside the jungle. In the end he found himself lost in the jungle. To make thing worse, he got captured by the native people lived inside the jungle.

They wanted to sacrifice him to their god. But when they noticed that the king had one finger short, they released him immediately as he was not a perfect man anymore and not suitable for sacrifice. The king managed to get back to his palace after all. And he finally understood the follower’s wise quote, ‘Good or bad, hard to say’. If he hadn’t lost one finger,he could have been killed by the native people.

He ordered to release the follower, and apologized to him. But to the king amaze, the follower was not mad at him at all. Instead, the follower said, ‘It wasn’t a bad thing that you locked me up.’ Why? Because if the king hadn’t locked the follower up, he would have brought the follower along to the jungle. If the native found that the king was not suitable, they would have used the follower. Again, the quote ‘Good or bad, hard to say’ stands.

The moral of the story:

Everything that happens in this world, there is no absolute good or bad. Sometimes good things turned out to be bad things eventually, while bad things become a gain.

Whatever good things that happen to you, enjoy it, but don’t have to hold too tight to it, treat it as a surprise in your life.Whatever bad things that happen to you, don’t have to feel too sad or despair, in the end, it might not be a total bad thing after all.

If one can understand this, he or she will find life much easier.

All that is necessary for evil to succeed, is for good men to do nothing. – Sir Edmund Burk

The weakness of men is the facade of strength: the strength of women is the facade of weakness – Warren Farrel

> The race is not over, because I have not won yet

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending

> Love: a temporary insanity, curable by marriage. – Ambrose Bierce

>My toughest fight was with my first wife – Mohd Ali (World heavyweight boxing champion)

>A woman is like a tea bag-you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.

>Happiness cannot be owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is a spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace & gratitude.

    my recent chat with god

    just replace me with your name

    God: Hello… Did you call me?
    Me: Called you? No.. who is this?
    God: This is GOD. I heard your prayers. So I thought I will chat.

    Me: I do pray. Just makes me feel good. I am actually busy now. I am in the midst of something..
    God: What are you busy at? Ants are busy too.

    Me: Don’t know. But I cant find free time. Life has become hectic. It’s rush hour all the time.
    God: Sure. Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you results.
    Activity consumes time. Productivity frees it.

    Me: I understand. But I still cant figure it out.. By the way, I was not expecting YOU to buzz me on instant messaging chat.
    God: Well I wanted to resolve your fight for time, by giving you some clarity. In this net era, I wanted to reach you through the medium you are comfortable with.

    Me: Tell me, why has life become complicated now?
    God: Stop analyzing life. Just live it. Analysis is what makes it complicated.

    Me: why are we then constantly unhappy?
    God: Your today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday. You are worrying because you are analyzing. Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.

    Me: But how can we not worry when there is so much uncertainty?
    God: Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional.

    Me: But then, there is so much pain due to uncertainty..
    God: Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

    Me: If suffering is optional, why do good people always suffer?
    God: Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer. With that experience their life becomes better not bitter.

    Me: You mean to say such experience is useful?
    God: Yes. In every terms, Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.

    Me: But still, why should we go through such tests? Why can’t we be free from problems?
    God: Problems are Purposeful Roadblocks Offering Beneficial Lessons (to) Enhance Mental Strength. Inner strength comes from struggle and endurance, not when you are free from problems.

    Me: Frankly in the midst of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading..
    God: If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Looking outside, you dream. Looking inside, you awaken. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides insight.

    Me: Sometimes not succeeding fast seems to hurt more than moving in the right direction. What should I do?
    God: Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.Knowing the road ahead is more satisfying than knowing you rode ahead. You work with the compass. Let others work with the clock.

    Me: In tough times, how do you stay motivated?
    God: Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

    Me: What surprises you about people?
    God: when they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me”. Everyone wishes to have truth on their side, but few want
    to be on the side of the truth.

    Me: Sometimes I ask, who am I, why am I here. I can’t get the answer.
    God: Seek not to find who you are, but to determine who you want to be. Stop looking for a purpose as to why you are here. Create it. Life is not a process of discovery but a process of creation.

    Me: How can I get the best out of life?
    God: Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

    Me: One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.
    God: There are no unanswered prayers. At times the answer is NO.

    Me: Thank you for this wonderful chat. I am so happy to start the New Day with a new sense of inspiration.
    God: Well. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Don’t believe your doubts and doubt your beliefs. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve.

    I love the philosophy of Ms. Kishore here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCrqPQ2wlwI&feature=related

    This is exactly what people battered by parasitic relationships need in their life!
