    Grandpa's Letter

  • One day, a young man was cleaning out his late grandfather’s belongings when he came across a bright red envelope. Written on the front were the words, “To my grandson.” Recognizing his grandfather’s handwriting, the boy opened the envelope. A letter inside read:

    Dear Ronny,

    Years ago you came to me for help. You said, “Grandpa, how is it that you’ve accomplished so much in your life? You’re still full of energy, and I’m already tired of struggling. How can I get that same enthusiasm that you’ve got?”

    I didn’t know what to say to you then. But knowing my days are numbered, I figure that I owe you an answer. So here is what I believe.

    I think a lot of it has to do with how a person looks at things. I call it ‘keeping your eyes wide open.’

    First, realize that life is filled with surprises, but many are good ones. If you don’t keep watching for them, you’ll miss half the excitement. Expect to be thrilled once in a while, and you will be.

    When you meet up with challenges, welcome them. They’ll leave you wiser, stronger, and more capable than you were the day before. When you make a mistake, be grateful for the things it taught you. Resolve to use that lesson to help you reach your goals.

    And always follow the rules. Even the little ones. When you follow the rules, life works. If you think you ever really get by with breaking the rules, you’re only fooling yourself.

    It’s also important to decide exactly what you want. Then keep your mind focused on it, and be prepared to receive it.

    But be ready to end up in some new places too. As you grow with the years, you’ll be given bigger shoes to fill. So be ready for endings as well as challenging beginnings.

    Sometimes we have to be brave enough to move from the familiar to the unfamiliar. Life isn’t just reaching peaks. Part of it is moving from one peak to the next. If you rest too long in between, you might be tempted to quit. Leave the past in the past. Climb the next mountain and enjoy the view.

    Dump things that weigh you down emotionally and spiritually. When an old resentment, belief, or attitude becomes heavy, lighten your load. Shed those hurtful attitudes that slow you down and drain your energy.

    Remember that your choices will create your successes and your failures. So consider all the pathways ahead, and decide which ones to follow. Then believe in yourself, get up, and get going.

    And be sure to take breaks once in a while. They’ll give you a renewed commitment to your dreams and a cheerful, healthy perception of the things that matter the most to you.

    Most important of all, never give up on yourself. The person that ends up a winner is the one who resolves to win. Give life everything you’ve got, and life will give its best back to you.

    Love always,

    How to Identify an Auditor

  • Once upon a time, there was a Shepherd looking after his sheep on the side of a deserted road.

    Suddenly a brand new Porsche screeches to a halt.

    The driver, a man dressed in an Armani Suit, Cerutti Shoes, Ray-Ban Sunglasses, TAG-Heuer Wrist-Watch, and a Pierre Cardin Tie gets out and asks the shepherd, "If I can tell You How many Sheep You have, will You give Me One of them?"

    The Shepherd looks at the Young Man, then looks at the large flock of grazing sheep and replies,"Okay."

    The Young Man parks the car, connects his Laptop to the mobile-fax, enters a NASA Website, scans the ground using his GPS, opens a database and 60 Excel tables filled with algorithms and pivot tables. He then prints out a 150-page report on his high-tech mini-printer, turns to the shepherd and says, "You have exactly 1,586 sheep."

    The Shepherd cheers, "That's correct, You can have Your Sheep."

    The Young Man takes an animal and puts it in the back of his Porsche.

    The Shepherd looks at him and asks, "If I guess your profession, will you return My animal to Me?"

    The Young Man answers, "Yes,why not?"

    The Shepherd says, "You are an Auditor."

    "How did You know?" asks the Young Man.

    "Very simple," answers the Shepherd.

    "Firstly, You came here without being wanted.
    Secondly, You charged Me a fee to tell Me something I already knew, and
    Thirdly, You don't understand anything about my Business.."

    " can I have My Sheep back?"

    Do You Know Your Value

  • A well-known Speaker started off his Seminar by holding up a Rupees(Rs.) 500  Note.

    In the Room of 300, he asked, "Who would like this Rs.500 Note?"

    Hands started going up.

    He said, "I am going to give this Note to One of You but First let me do this." He proceeded to Crumple the Note up.

    He then asked, "Who still wants it? "Still the hands were up in the air.

    "Well," he replied, "What If I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now all Crumpled and Dirty. "Now who still wants it?"

    Still the hands went into the air."My friends, you have all learned a very Valuable Lesson.

    No Matter what I did to the money, You still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth Rs. 500.

    Many times in Our Lives, We are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions We make and the Circumstances that come our way. We feel as though We are 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!

    Never Let Yesterday's Disappointments Overshadow Tomorrow's Dreams.

    The Lion and the Mouse

  • Once when a Lion was asleep, a little Mouse began running up and down upon him. This soon wakened the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him and opened his big jaws to swallow him.

    "Pardon, O King!" cried the little Mouse, "Forgive me this time. I shall never repeat it and I shall never forget your kindness. And who knows, but I may be able to do you a good turn one of these days?"

    The Lion was so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him, that he lifted up his paw and let him go

    Sometime later a few hunters captured the King and tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him on.
    Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight in which the Lion was, ran up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the King of the Beasts. "Was I not right?" said the little Mouse, very happy to help the Lion.
