JOURNEY OF LIFE

Here is an interesting story which we can relate in our daily lives.

A must read … please take time and read it ….. once.

A long time ago, there was an Emperor who told his horseman that if he could ride on his horse and cover as much land area as he likes, then the Emperor would give him the area of land he has covered.

Sure enough, the horseman quickly jumped onto his horse and rode as fast as possible to cover as much land area as he could. He kept on riding and riding, whipping the horse to go as fast as possible. When he was hungry or tired, he did not stop because he wanted to cover as much area as possible.

Came to a point when he had covered a substantial area and he was exhausted and was dying. Then he asked himself, “Why did I push myself so hard to cover so much land area? Now I am dying and I only need a very small area to bury myself.”

The above story is similar with the journey of our Life. We push very hard everyday to make more money, to gain power and recognition.

We neglect our health, time with our family and to appreciate the surrounding beauty and the hobbies we love.

One day when we look back , we will realize that we don’t really need that much, but then we cannot turn back time for what we have missed.

Life is not about making money, acquiring power or recognition.

Life is definitely not about work! Work is only necessary to keep us living so as to enjoy the beauty and pleasures of life.

Life is a balance of Work and Play, Family and Personal time.

You have to decide how you want to balance your Life. Define your priorities, realize what you are able to compromise but always let some of your decisions be based on your instincts.

Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of Life, the whole aim of human existence.

So, take it easy, do what you want to do and appreciate nature.

Life is fragile,

Life is short.

Do not take Life for granted.

Live a balanced life style and enjoy Life to its fullest before it is too late.

“People in the process of earning a living should not forget to live”

Have a joyful day .. full of life.

ARE YOU ENJOYING THE ‘PRESENT’

Yesterday is “History”, Tomorrow is “Mystery”, Today is the Gift of God, that is why it is known as “PRESENT.

 

So friends are you really enjoying this gift of god, “The Present” or are You still waiting for the “Right Time to Come” or that special day .. to come.

 

How often we keep on waiting for the “Right Time” –

To do something special…

To give something special…..

To say something special to somebody special…..

and realize that is too late.

 

Are you saving something for the special occasion??? But who knows whether you will be Present for that “Special Occasion”? 

 

To give you all an example, during my training of Time Management Program in one of the organizations, I came across a Manager who appeared very busy and stressed out. I asked, Sir, why are you working so hard? He replied for my Family, for my sons. I asked, how much time do you give to your family and your sons? For a moment he paused and replied, every Sunday 1 hour – quality time. I asked, but sir, your sons need quantity too, what about more time to your family and he smiled and replied “I have planned for my retirement”, “I will be there all the time for them after my retirement.” To this I inquired further, “Sir, What if you retire from this world, before you retire from your job???”, won’t you feel regretted that you did not spend quantity time with your sons and family.

 

Friends, I’m not saying lavish out and freak out totally, but at least enjoy the life your love to live. But why compromise – when you can afford something today, why wait for the special day..

 

So friends, ask this question to your self today, “Am I living the life I love to live, am I spending my time, money and energy in the right direction today or am I waiting for some special day….the right time to come.”

 

Here is a brief list of some thing we keep waiting to do on that special day..

 

Saying  “I Love You” to  our near and dear ones

Saying “Sorry” to whom we have hurt or asking for forgiveness

Going on that dream trip or vacation

Eating out the food that I cherish the most

Spending time with loved ones

Playing that game or sports I love so  much

Spending time on my hobby

Starting a new venture – business

Please do add to the list if required……
