Starting with my Learning Series here; adapted from a motivating and inspiring write-up which I felt would be very useful for both students and the Society as a whole with day – to – day instances, to encourage positive thinking and improve efficiency !!
As human beings we face problems in life. If we try to runaway in fear, we cannot reach our goal. We should be positive. YES,I CAN (THINK POSITIVE) : You must have heard about the achievements of A.P.J. Abdul Kalaam, Steve Jobs, Narayana Murthy of Infosys and many such other great people. They have not become great overnight. They too faced problems in their lives. But they could face all problems boldly and mould their lives in a positive way only through their attitude.
IF YOU WANT TO BE THE RAINBOW, YOU MUST KNOW HOW TO PUT UP WITH RAIN.
Two seeds lay side by side in the fertile spring soil.
The first seed said, “I want to grow. I want to send my roots deep into the soil under me, and send my sprouts through the earth’s layer above me. I want to open my tender buds to announce the arrival of spring. I want to feel the warmth of the sun on my face and the blessing of the morning dew on my petals.” And so she grew…
The second seed said, “I am afraid. If I send my roots into the ground below, I don’t know what I will face in the dark. If I push my way through the hard soil above me I may damage my delicate sprouts. If I open my little buds a snail may eat them. If I open my blossoms, a small child may pull me from the ground. No. It is better for me to wait until it is safe.”
She waited and waited.
A yard hen scratching around in the early spring for food found the waiting seed and promptly ate it.
