Self Help and GOD !!!

GOD helps those who help themselves!!!!
Trust in GOD but Lock your car!!!!

There was once a man, a GOD fearing man, who travelled around the world preaching and spreading the word about the greatness, love, care, power, and ability of GOD. He travelled across seas, deserts, nations just to enlighten people that it is only GOD who has the ablity to carve ones life and so pray and pray hard seek his blessings.

He was once travelling for days across a desert that was ruthless to anyone. No food, no water, no habitation, nothing. Suddenly he sees a patch of awesome greenary (vegetation,fountains, gardens etc). Was it an illusion, was it an act of GOD, he thought. As he neared, he realized that it indeed existed, and it was even more beautiful. He then approached the person who lived there and said" Sir, you must be so thankful to GOD for giving you such a wonderful place. I am sure your prayers are always heard. GOD is great to give you such a life in such a ruthless desert.

For which the man who owned the place said " Yes, being a firm believer in GOD, I am thankful for all that he has giving me thus far (great health, piece of land etc). But try and imagine how this place was when GOD owned this piece of land before me."

Attitude!!!

Life is 10% what happens to you, it is 90% how you react to it - Charles Swindall

Value of life is not fully discovered unless one is confronted with bumps in life. It is but natural to enjoy the pleasures of success and happiness, celebrate with a sense of satisfaction and joy. Why? Because, happiness, success is something that is liked by all naturally.

On the other hand, if one is confronted with a hiccup in life, it pulls the person down. Makes anyone drag oneself along the way. Why? Because sorrow, sadness is something one does not look forward to in life.

Life is a rollercoaster that one rides each day. Just as one elevates oneself to the moon and enjoys the great moments in life, one needs to be able to evaluate and face life when confronted with hiccups. The true individual can only be evaluated depending on how one stands up for oneself and confronts the situation.

It is incorrect to assume that good things rarely touch your feet. It is unfair to blame GOD for all the misgivings that one faces in life. It is also incorrect to believe that you are one of those unfortunate who are always confronted with sorrows.

Look closely, every individual one comes across will have some kind of issues in life ranging from personal to professional life. It is easy to live a life complaining about what one did not get or one did not accomplish. It is an acheivement if one takes the negative in oneself's stride just as one would take the positive. It is the ATTITUDE that dictates this character of metal.

Past cannot be changed, but one should not ruin the future by worrying about it in the present. Worrying about what happened in the past or what could confront one in the future serves no purpose. One has to have a positive outlook and think what needs to be done to carve a better brighter future. Positive Attitude alone can take an individual miles. Rather than complain, pick up on the mistakes, one has to learn lessons and face life with an unparalled ATTITUDE.
