Its Story time!

Hello everyone! while you read this new post get a cup of coffee to really enjoy it!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am posting here a story which has made a lasting impression on my mind.go ahead read it but thats not the end of it.. u have to tell a story,an experience it can be anything that has got straight to your heart and mind.me thought this story would help you all to cherish life and move ahead with a victorious attitude. (had come across this story on the net a few years back.) "Once upon a time there was a race of ants in paris.. (i know this itself is hilarious) this race was different in the sense that ants from all over the world had come to participate and it was all about climbing the eifel tower.1,2,3 the signal was given and the race started.There were millions of spectators(of course everyone likes to watch than participate!) the ants were trying hard to put in their best.But after a few min the race slowed its pace and there the spectators started saying 'no one can make it till the top.. this must be some kindda joke it is not practical.how can an ant cover so much of distance with out a stop' they all started to enjoy the game in a different way.. some started betting,some started to observe and laugh on the poor condition of the ant participants,some were just sitting there (the one's who have no clue as to y they have come).after a most of the ants had covered half way they started sinking, feeling tired and some started falling to the ground.. only one ant was there and she had already made it to the top!It was amazing and astonishing. when the ant came down she was asked as to what made her stay till the end when there were so many negative attitudes flooding in.. and it was only then discovered that she was deaf.. Moral of story : left to you but really wish it motivates you. thats my motive for the story ! ๐Ÿ˜‰

How I got over my Stage Fear !

I remember the days when I feared standing in front of people. My legs would shake ( or vibrate? ) & my heart beat rate would break all Guinness records. I couldnโ€™t look at people. It was a strange fear. I knew I could get over it, but I never tried; for I knew Iโ€™d fail.

I used to sing & play Guitar for my friends. I knew Iโ€™d not disappoint my audience. But the thought of facing 1000 people dreaded me. I was in 3rd year of Engineering & our college had an annual function. I decided to take part in the singing competition. Now I decided to sing because singing would be the last thing youโ€™d want to do, if you had stage fear. But I knew, if I could do it just once, Iโ€™m through! itโ€™s a fact. The โ€˜firstโ€™ time is the most painful.

So, I was on stage with the microphone in my hand. People turned their heads towards me as if they were sunflowers and I were the Sun. My legs shook, my heart pounded fast, I forgot the song which I was supposed to sing, the orchestra started playingโ€ฆ I cursed my decision , but probably, it was too late to rethink. I started singing โ€ฆ people started dancing and it was all fine then.

I did it. Then I did it again! Then I did it with Guitar in my hand. The stage fear was gone! Forever!

Gift Of Life.....

Hey namrata, here is my contribution. Hope you and others CEan will like it.
A young man was
getting ready to graduate from college. For many months
he
had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing
his
father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted. As
Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father
had
purchased the car.

Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his father called him into
his
private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine
son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful
wrapped gift box. Curious, but somewhat Disappointed, the young man
opened
t he box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the young man's
name
embossed in gold. Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said,

"With all your money you give me a Bible? and stormed out of the
house,
leaving the Bible.

Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business.
He
had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was

very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him

since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he
received
a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of
his
possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take
care
of things.


When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and regret
filled
his heart. He began to search through his father's important papers
and
saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears,
he
opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. His father had carefully
underlined a verse, Matt 7:11, "And if ye, being evil know how to give
good
gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly father which
is
in heaven, give to those who ask Him?" As he read those words, a car
key
dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer's
name,
the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was
the
date of his graduation, and the words...PAID IN FULL

One more from me..... Hope I ain't spamming ๐Ÿ˜‰

A jobless man applied for the position of "office boy" at Microsoft. The HR
manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test. "You
are employed."

He said, "Give me your e-mail address and I'll send you the application to
fill in, as well as date when you may start."

The man replied "But I don't have a computer, neither an email."

I'm sorry", said the HR Manager, "If you don't have an email, that means you
do not exist. And who doesn't exist, cannot have the job."


The man left with no hope at all. He didn't know what to do, with only $10
in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg
tomato crate. He then sold the tomatoes in a door-to-door round. In less
than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital. He repeated the
Operation three times, and returned home with $60. The man realized that he
can survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late
Thus, his money doubled or tripled every day. Shortly, he bought a cart,
then a truck, then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.

5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US. He
started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance.
He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan. When the
conversation was concluded, the broker asked him his email. The man replied,
"I don't have an email". The broker answered curiously, "You don't have an
email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you
could have been if you had an email?"

The man thought for a while and replied, " Yes, I'd be an office boy at
Microsoft!"
Moral of the story:

M1 - Internet is not the solution to your life.
M2 - If you don't have internet, and work hard, you can still be a
millionaire
