The Same Joke One day in the village, there was a gathering of lots of people around a wise man. Most of them complained to the wise man about a problem, which, the wise man had heard again many times in the past.
The wise man was silent for a moment. Then he told the villagers a joke and the whole audience roared in laughter. After a couple of minutes, he started telling them another joke. But it was the same joke, again. When he finished, only a few of the villagers smiled. Then he told the same joke for the third time, and no one laughed anymore.
The wise man smiled and told the villagers,
“You cannot laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem? Why are you always angry about the same problem?”
The Law of the Mirror
You Must See Value in Yourself to Add Value to Yourself
Personal development is the belief that you are worth the effort, time, and energy needed to develop yourself.
If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect
- “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
- “Much of the stress that people feel doesn’t come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they’ve started.”
- “We forge the chains we wear in life.”
- “If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the world belongs to you.”
