Where To Tap

Ever heard the story of the giant ship engine that failed? The ship’s owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure but how to fix the engine. Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a youngster. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.

Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed! A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars.

“What?!” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!”

So they wrote the old man a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill.”

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer…….. $              2.00

Knowing where to tap ………… $       9998.00

Moral: Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life makes all the difference.

The Miracle of ATTITUDE

What is really attitude

A small truth to make life 100%

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z  is  equals

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

HARD WORK

H+A+R+D+W+O+R+K

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11=98%

KNOWLEDGE

K+N+O+W+L+E+D+G+E

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

LOVE

L+O+V+E

12+15+22+5 = 54%

LUCK

L+U+C+K

12+21+3+11 = 47%

Most of us think this is the most important

Then what makes 100%

Is it Money ? … NO ! ! !

M+O+N+E+Y

13+15+14+5+25 = 72%

Leadership ? … NO ! ! !

L+E+A+D+E+R+S+H+I+P

12+5+1+4+5+18+19+9+16 = 89%

Every problem has a solution only if we perhaps change our attitude

To go to the top to that 100%

What we really need to go further….

ATTITUDE

A+T+T+I+T+U+D+E

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

It is our attitude towards work and life which makes our life 100% perfect.

Attitude is the very important key of  success


So change your ATTITUDE!!!!!

YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW

Here I am with a moral story . I got this from my uncle as a mail in my mailbox. I hope everyone of you will like this.

“Good morning”  said a woman as she walked up to the man sitting on ground.

The man slowly looked up.

This was a woman clearly accustomed to the finer things of life. Her coat was new. She looked like she had never missed a meal in her life.

His first thought was that she wanted to make fun of him, like so many others had done before.  “Leave me alone,” he growled….

To his amazement, the woman continued standing.

She was smiling — her even white teeth displayed in dazzling rows. “Are you hungry?” she asked.

“No,” he answered sarcastically. “I’ve just come from dining with the president. Now go away.”

The woman’s smile became even broader..

Suddenly the man felt a gentle hand under his arm.

“What are you doing, lady?” the man asked angrily. “I said to leave me alone.

Just then a policeman came up. “Is there any problem, ma’am?” he asked..

“No problem here, officer,” the woman answered. “I’m just trying to get this man to his feet.. Will you help me?”

The officer scratched his head.  “That’s old Jack. He’s been a fixture around here for a couple of years. What do you want with him?”

“See that cafeteria over there?” she asked. “I’m going to get him something to eat and get him out of the cold for awhile.”

“Are you crazy, lady?” the homeless man resisted. “I don’t want to go in there!”  Then he felt strong hands grab his other arm and lift him up.  “Let me go, officer. I didn’t do anything..”

“This is a good deal for you, Jack,” the officer answered. “Don’t blow it.”

Finally, and with some difficulty, the woman and the police officer got Jack into the cafeteria and sat him at a table in a remote corner.  It was the middle of the morning, so most of the breakfast crowd had already left and the lunch bunch had not yet arrived…

The manager strode across the cafeteria and stood by his table.  “What’s going on here, officer?” he asked.  “What is all this, is this man in trouble?”

“This lady brought this man in here to be fed,” the policeman answered.

“Not in here!” the manager replied angrily. “Having a person like that here is bad for business.”

Old Jack smiled a toothless grin.  “See, lady. I told you so. Now if you’ll let me go.. I didn’t want to come here in the first place.”

The woman turned to the cafeteria manager and smiled. “Sir, are you familiar with Eddy and Associates, the banking firm down the street?”

“Of course I am,” the manager answered impatiently. “They hold their weekly meetings in one of my banquet rooms.”

“And do you make a goodly amount of money providing food at these weekly meetings?”

“What business is that of yours?”

I, sir, am Penelope Eddy, president and CEO of the company.”

“Oh.”

The woman smiled again. “I thought that might make a difference.”  She glanced at the cop who was busy stifling a giggle. “Would you like to join us in a cup of coffee and a meal, officer?”

“No thanks, ma’am,” the officer replied. “I’m on duty.”

“Then, perhaps, a cup of coffee to go?”

“Yes, ma’am. That would be very nice.”

The cafeteria manager turned on his heel, “I’ll get your coffee for you right away, officer.”

The officer watched him walk away. “You certainly put him in his place,” he said.

“That was not my intent. Believe it or not, I have a reason for all this.”

She sat down at the table across from her amazed dinner guest. She stared at him intently.  “Jack, do you remember me?”

Old Jack searched her face with his old, rheumy eyes..  “I think so — I mean you do look familiar..”

“I’m a little older perhaps,” she said.. “Maybe I’ve even filled out more than in my younger days when you worked here, and I came through that very door, cold and hungry.”

“Ma’am?” the officer said questioningly.  He couldn’t believe that such a magnificently turned out woman could ever have been hungry.

“I was just out of college,” the woman began. “I had come to the city looking for a job, but I couldn’t find anything.  Finally I was down to my last few cents and had been kicked out of my apartment. I walked the streets for days.  It was February and I was cold and nearly starving. I saw this place and walked in on the off chance that I could get something to eat.”

Jack lit up with a smile.  “Now I remember,” he said.  “I was behind the serving counter.  You came up and asked me if you could work for something to eat. I said that it was against company policy.”

“I know,” the woman continued. “Then you made me the biggest roast beef sandwich that I had ever seen, gave me a cup of coffee, and told me to go over to a corner table and enjoy it.  I was afraid that you would get into trouble… Then, when I looked over and saw you put the price of my food in the cash register, I knew then that everything would be all right.”

“So you started your own business?” Old Jack said.

“I got a job that very afternoon. I worked my way up.  Eventually I started my own business that, with the help of God, prospered.” She opened her purse and pulled out a business card. “When you are finished here, I want you to pay a visit to a Mr. Lyons…He’s the personnel director of my company. I’ll go talk to him now and I’m certain he’ll find something for you to do around the office.”  She smiled.  “I think he might even find the funds to give you a little advance so that you can buy some clothes and get a place to live until you get on your feet.. If you ever need anything, my door is always opened to you.”

There were tears in the old man’s eyes. “How can I ever thank you?” he said.

“Don’t thank me,” the woman answered. “To God goes the glory. Thank Him… He led me to you.”

Outside the cafeteria, the officer and the woman paused at the entrance before going their separate ways…

“Thank you for all your help, officer,” she said.

“On the contrary, Ms. Eddy,” he answered. “Thank you. I saw a miracle today, something that I will never forget. And..And thank you for the coffee.”

If you have missed knowing me, you have missed nothing.

If you have missed some of my emails, you might have missed a laugh.

But, if you have missed knowing God our CREATOR, you have missed everything in the world.

Have a Wonderful Day. May God Bless You Always and don’t forget that when you “cast your bread upon the waters,” you never know how it will be returned to you..

When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go.
Only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He’ll catch you when you fall, or He’ll teach you how to fly!

The  power of one sentence!

God is going to shift things around for you today and  let things work in your favor..

God closes doors no man can open & God opens doors no man can close..

Have a blessed day and remember to be a blessing…

Success is a journey, not a destination- A moral Story

donkey_right_roger_von_oechdonkey_roger_von_oech

I wanna share an interesting story here.

Once upon a time a Washer man was bringing up two donkeys.

Let us say Donkey-A and Donkey-B.

Donkey-A felt it was very energetic and could do better than the other.
It always tried to pull the washer man’s attraction over it by taking more
load and walking fast in front of him.

Innocent Donkey-B is normal, so it will walk normal, irrespective of the
washer man’s presence. After a period of time, Washer man started
pressurising Donkey-B to be like Donkey-A. But Donkey-B unable to walk
fast, got continuous punishment from washer man. It was crying and told
personally to Donkey-A “Dear friend, only we two are here, why to compete
with each other….we can carry equal load at normal speed “.

That made Donkey-A all the more energetic and next day it told to
washer man that it can carry more load and even it can run fast also.

Obviously happier washer man looked at Donkey-B.., his BP raised and he
started kicking Donkey-B. Next day with a smile, Donkey-A carried more load
and started running fast. But it was breathtaking for Donkey-B and it
couldn’t act that way….But the washer man was frustrated, so he harassed
Donkey-B terribly, and finally it fell down hopelessly.

Then Donkey-A felt itself as a supremo and happily started carrying more
load with great speed. But now the Load of the Donkey-B was also being
carried by Donkey-A., and still it had to run fast. For some period it
did, finally due to fatigue it became tired and started feeling the pain.

But the washer man expected more from Donkey-A. It also tried it’s best, but
couldn’t cope up with his owner’s demand. The Washer man got angry with
Donkey-A also and started harassing it to take more load… Donkey-A was
crying for long time and then tried its best… But it couldn’t meet the
owner’s satisfaction. Finally the day came when due to frustration the
washer man killed Donkey-A and went for searching some other Donkeys.

Its an endless story……….

But the moral of the Story in Corporate life is……,

“Think all colleagues are same and that everyone is capable…. Always
Share the Load equally….. Don’t ever act smart in front of your Boss and
never try for getting over-credit…

Don’t feel happy when your colleague is under pressure.. ”

It doesn’t matter if u r A or B, for the Boss u shall be always DONKEY

And most importantly, Never Work Hard,Work Cleverly…..

This is a forwarded mail from my uncle Rev.Fr.George Kuzhikattu currently in Philippians which came in my mailbox today morning.While reading this I understood that it is a common thing that happens in this time everywhere. Regardless the place and age  every one try to act like Donkey A.Even the people having years of experience sometimes act like a kid for the wink of happiness.The story is exactly suits the current situations  and tells the true cases of people .So its indeed we need to grab the reality of life ….
