Should you let the boss have the first word?

A sales rep, an admin clerk, and their manager were walking to lunch when they found an antique oil lamp.

They rub it and a Genie came out.

The Genie said, “I will give each of you a wish, go quick.”

“Me first ! Me first !” said the admin clerk and continued, “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.”

Pooff! She's gone.

“Me next ! Me next !” said the sales rep and hurriedly asked his wish, “I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with love of my life.”

Pooff! He's gone.

“OK, over to you”, the Genie said to the manager.

The manager said, “I want those two back in the office by the time I am done with my lunch.”

Moral: Always let your boss have the first say

Positive or Negative Motivation

This is a story of two brothers. One was a drug addict and drunkard who frequently beat up his family. The other one was a very successful businessman who was respected in society and had a wonderful family. Some people wanted to find out why two brothers from the same parents, brought up in the same environment, could be so different.

They asked the first one, "Why are you behaving like this? You are a drug addict, a drunkard, and you beat your family. What motivates you?"

He said, "My father."

They asked, "What about your father?"

The reply was, "My father was a drug addict, a drunkard and he beat his family. Then what do you expect me to be? That is what I am."

They went to his brother and asked him the same question. "How come you are doing everything right? You are a very successful person. What is your source of motivation?"

And guess what he said?
He too said, "My father. When I was a little boy, I used to see my dad drunk and doing all the wrong things. I made up my mind that… that is 'not' what I wanted to be."

Both were deriving their strength and motivation from the same source, but one was using it positively and the other negatively.

Who is dumb?

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, 'This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you.

'The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, 'Which do you want, son?'

The boy takes the quarters and leaves the dollar.
'What did I tell you?' said the barber. 'That kid never learns!'

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice-cream store; he says to the boy; 'Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?'

The boy licked his cone and replied, 'Because the day I take the dollar, the game's over!'

Moral: When you think the other person is dumb, very likely you may be making a fool of yourself.

Life is beautiful

Stay away from Anger.
It hurts only You and nobody else.
If you are right, then there is no need to get angry,
and if you are wrong then you don't have any right to get angry.

Patience with family is love,
Patience with others is respect,
Patience with self is confidence and
Patience with GOD is faith.

Never think hard about the past, it brings tears.
Don't think more about the future, it brings fear.
Live this moment with a Smile, it brings cheer.

Every test in our life makes us bitter or better,
Every problem comes to make us or break us,
The choice is ours whether we become victims or victorious.

Search for a beautiful heart not a beautiful face.
Beautiful things are not always good, but good things are always beautiful.

Do you know why God created gaps between fingers?
So that someone who is special to you comes
and fills those gaps by holding your hand forever.
Never forget this advice!

Happiness keeps You Sweet, Trials keep You Strong,
Success keeps You Glowing,
and But Only God keeps You Going!

When you don't give up, you cannot fail.
