Believe in Yourself

In today’s world we roll fast and quick. We run all day- for the entire 24 hrs, the whole week, month and year. But is our run meaningful, with conscious?  No!!!!  To be exact, not at all times. Most of us feel energetic at good times and drained at bad times.
We need to stimulate our energy and mind at all times. Just try to read your mind and listen to the words that it speaks.
“Hear from many, Must is trust, Follow none & Believe in Yourself” . These words will make you feel that you own your life.
I wish to share a story which inspires me a lot .

Good or Bad starts from You

There was a business executive who was deep in debt and could see no way out. Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment. He sat on the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy.

Suddenly an old man appeared before him. “I can see that something is troubling you,” he said. After listening to the executive’s woes, the old man said, “I believe I can help you.” He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand saying, “Take this money. Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time.” Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had came. The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!

“I can erase my money worries in an instant!” he realized. But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it laying there, might give him the strength to work out a way to save his business, he thought. With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within few months, he was out of debt and making money once again.

Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check. At the agreed-upon time, the old man appeared. But just as the executive was about to hand back the check and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man. “I’m so glad I caught him!” she cried. “I hope he hasn’t been bothering you. He’s always escaping from the rest home and telling people he’s John D. Rockefeller.” And she led the old man away by the arm.

The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year long, he’d been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him.

Suddenly, he realised that it wasn’t the money, real or imagined, that had turned his life around. It was his newfound self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.

Friends, I don’t wish to summarize the story but wish to shoot out some queries
a) From where did the businessman get the energy?
b) What made him progress?
c) Where did the success comes from?
d) Did the businessman really need money or just a spark to accelerate him ?
Think Positive….. Live Happily…..
