True winning motivation

In old times, fable retells the story of the young athletic boy hungry for success, for whom winning was everything and success was measured by such a result.

One day, the boy was preparing himself for a running competition in his small native village, himself and two other young boys to compete. A large crowd had congregated to witness the sporting spectacle and a wise old man, upon hearing of the little boy, had traveled far to bear witness also.

The race commenced, looking like a level heat at the finishing line, but sure enough the boy dug deep and called on his determination, strength and power… he took the winning line and was first. The crowd was ecstatic and cheered and waved at the boy. The wise man remained still and calm, expressing no sentiment. The little boy, however, felt proud and important.

A second race was called, and two new young, fit, challengers came forward, to run with the little boy. The race was started and sure enough the little boy came through and finished first once again. The crowd was ecstatic again and cheered and waved at the boy. The wise man remained still and calm, again expressing no sentiment. The little boy, however, felt proud and important.

“Another race, another race!” – pleaded the little boy.

The wise old man stepped forward and presented the little boy with two new challengers, an elderly frail lady and a blind man. “What is this?” – quizzed the little boy. “This is no race.” – he exclaimed.

“Race!” – said the wise man. The race was started and the boy was the only finisher, the other two challengers left standing at the starting line. The little boy was ecstatic, he raised his arms in delight. The crowd, however, was silent showing no sentiment toward the little boy.

“What has happened? Why don’t the people join in my success?” – he asked the wise old man.

“Race again”, replied the wise man, “this time, finish together, all three of you, finish together.” – continued the wise man.

The little boy thought a little, stood in the middle of the blind man and the frail old lady, and then took the two challengers by the hand. The race began and the little boy walked slowly, ever so slowly, to the finishing line and crossed it. The crowd were ecstatic and cheered and waved at the boy. The wise man smiled, gently nodding his head. The little boy felt proud and important.

“Old man, I don’t understand! Who are the crowd cheering for? Which one of us three?” – asked the little boy.

The wise old man looked into the little boy’s eyes, placing his hands on the boy’s shoulders, and replied softly, “Little boy, for this race you have won much more than in any race you have ever ran before, and for this race the crowd cheer not for any winner!”

The Obstacle in our Path

There once was a very wealthy and curious king. This king had a huge boulder placed in the middle of a road. Then he hid nearby to see if anyone would try to remove the gigantic rock from the road.

The first people to pass by were some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers. Rather than moving it, they simply walked around it. A few loudly blamed the King for not maintaining the roads. Not one of them tried to move the boulder.

Finally, a peasant came along. His arms were full of vegetables. When he got near the boulder, rather than simply walking around it as the others had, the peasant put down his load and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. It took a lot of effort but he finally succeeded.

The peasant gathered up his load and was ready to go on his way when he say a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The peasant opened the purse. The purse was stuffed full of gold coins and a note from the king. The king’s note said the purse’s gold was a reward for moving the boulder from the road.

The king showed the peasant what many of us never understand: every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.

You are special – Don’t ever forget it!

A teacher started off a seminar by holding up a $20 bill. A crowd of 200 had gathered to hear him speak. He asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?” 200 hands went up.

He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.” He crumpled the bill up.

He then asked, “Who still wants it?” all 200 hands were still raised.

“Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?” Then he dropped the bill on the ground and stomped on it with his shoes.

He picked it up, and showed it to the crowd. The bill was all crumpled and dirty.

“Now who still wants it?”

All the hands still went up.

“My friends, I have just showed you a very important lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, life crumples us and grinds us into the dirt. We make bad decisions or deal with poor circumstances. We feel worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special – Don’t ever forget it!

Let us awaken now and realize there are greater vibrancy, joy, and freedom available to each of us.

Let us awaken now and realize there are greater vibrancy, joy, and freedom available to each of us. There is more feeling.. there is more power… there are more love and abundance. But gaining access rests on our shoulders, for only two things can change our lives: either something new comes into our lives, or something new comes from within. Let us not hope for mere chance to change our story; let us summon the courage to change it ourselves.

The desire to win is base on your faith ..You’re belief in you . Yes you can, Yes you can…Now start…Let know one Stop YOU!! ,Or hold you back. NO ONE!!

You should never quit just because you are behind.

I learned a valuable lesson yesterday from a 13 year old. She was playing video games (go figure!!) and was losing in a game. She stopped the game and started over. I said to her, “You should never quit just because you are behind. Never give up, just keep going and you might just win.” She looked at me quizzically and in a very matter of fact way replied to me, “But I am NOT quitting, I am simply ‘resetting’.”

I pondered that for a moment and then realized how poignant that response really is. How many times in life do we need to change our mindset by ‘resetting’ our thought process? Our mind is a powerful force and every single one of us has the power to CHANGE that MINDSET if we choose to.

Hard times are going to come. Sometimes you are going to feel like you are not worth living. Sometimes you are going to doubt your abilities, your strength, your potential and even doubt yourself. Those will be the times when life knocks you down. BUT whenever all these happen, whenever life knocks you down, ask yourself “How did other people get through this?” Tell yourself that “if anybody can get through these, I too can get through.” After all, hard times are like flu, they are just passing by.

No man can truly rise above his fears; as no man can go below what he believes!

Life is miraculous progressive journey where you need to learn, grow and shine personally and professionally as well as spiritually rising above mistakes, criticisms and countless negative stormy times. In fact you cant change external world directly as our life is governed by certain laws and you have to be in the process of manifestation. Actually you can change your inner world which can be reflected back in your external world. As valid truth says “You are divine conscious being in the form of human gifted with infinite intelligence and ability to rise above any storms to get crowned with victories.

No man can truly rise above his fears; as no man can go below what he believes! We are what we choose to believe and fear continually. If you tell yourself that you are a success, you’ll soon become successful in spite of contrary situations and vice versa.
