Sometimes, it is best to just do NOTHING and even Ignore.
Take charge ….
Correct it, if it is wrong. Add value to improve. That will change your destiny.
Do not be afraid to challenge the status quo ……
Stand up, be different and unique.
Whats important is “WHO YOU ARE”. And let others be who they want to be …….
An old lady went to a bank intending to withdraw money…
The old lady handed her bank card to a bank teller and said, “I would like to withdraw $500.”
The female teller told her, “For withdrawals less than $5,000, please use the ATM.”
The old lady then asked, “Why?”
The teller irritably told her, “These are rules. Please leave if there is no other matter. There is a queue behind you.” She then returned the card to the old lady.
The old lady remained silent. But she returned the card to the teller and said, “Please help me withdraw all the money I have.”
The teller was astonished when she checked the account balance. She nodded her head, leaned down and said to the old lady, “My apologies Granny, you have $3.5 million in your account and our bank does not have so much cash currently. Could you make an appointment and come again tomorrow?”
The old lady then asked, “How much am I able to withdraw now?”
The teller told her, “Any amount up to $300,000”
The old lady then told the teller that she wanted to withdraw $300,000 from her account. The teller did so quickly and handed it to the old lady respectfully.
The old lady kept $500 in her bag and asked the teller to deposit the balance of $299,500 back into her account.
The teller was dumbfounded.
*The moral of this story is that rules are inflexible but we humans can be flexible when the situation requires us to be. We should not treat people based on their looks or how they are dressed. Rather, we should treat everyone with respect and never be too quick to judge a book by its cover*
Stay focus ….
Do what has to be done …
Ignore the “noise” …….
Let your actions define who you are and what you stand for.
Time will tell ……
you will never reach your
destination i+ you stop
and throw stones a+
every dog that barks.
Here we are, year end again.
For many I am sure, 2017 just flew by.
Looking back, what was 2017 all about ?
Have we touched someone ?
Has someone touched and changed us ?
Or have we offended, hurt someone ?
With our words ? Actions ?
We know we are not perfect
We do make mistakes
Yet somehow “sorry” seems to be the hardest word.
By nature, most human beings chose to be defensive
Is it Ego ? Pride ? Circumstances ? Positions ? Ignorance ?
Well, it’s never too late to let our guard down
Especially to people who are dear to us
Family, friends, colleagues, even mere acquaintances.
It’s always admirable to have big heart
To be real and to be apologetic when one is wrong
Then there will be more inner peace, harmony,
love, laughter and even happy tears
For me, 2017 has been a a year of LEARNING
With tears of pain as well as of joy
A year of revelation of behaviors and patterns, mine as well as others.
Thanks to everyone who has been my TEACHER this year
Merry Xmas, happy holidays and have a great 2018 ahead.
