Think Smart Work Smart

Once a baby girl went to a shop with her mother. The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed her a bottle with sweets and said, “Dear Child, you can take the sweets”. But the child didn’t take. The shopkeeper was surprised; such a small child she is and why is she not taking the sweets from the bottle.

Again he said take the sweets. Now the mother also heard that and said, “Take the sweets dear”. Yet she didn’t take it. The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets, he himself took the sweets and gave to the child. The child was happy to get two hands full of sweets.

While returning home the mother asked the child — Why didn’t you take the sweets, when the shop keeper told you to take? Can you guess the response: . . . Child replies Mom! My hands are very small and if I take the sweets I can only take few, but now you see when uncle gave with his big hands, how many more sweets I got!

When we take we may get little but when Our Father in Heaven gives, He gives us more beyond our expectations more than what we can think of because His blessings are more better than we can even imagine. Always ask God what you want and wait for the Lord to give you more!!

Ask what you want;

But be willing to take what is given to you;

Because

This may be better than what you asked for.

An Undestined Traveler

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. — Lao Tzu

Traveling is an integral part of each and every individual. We start the journey at the time of our birth and it continues until we “rest”. We generally don’t follow any fixed path in our early days. We break rules and construct our own way. Challenges are accepted without any fear of defeat. As we grow older, we are stuck to a specific path and are even afraid to wander around. Life becomes monotonous and challenges are overlooked or neglected. We cover ourselves in the skin of others just to please people around us. Fear starts to creep in.

Exploration is a necessity whether it is about exploring new ideas/opportunities or exploring new places. A stringent mindset leaves us nowhere. Show enough courage to travel the unknown territories. You never know what lies ahead. A quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson sums it up beautifully—

“Do not follow where the path may lead . Go instead where there is no path and leave the trail.”
