  • FEELING A LITTLE DOWN?

    FEELING A LITTLE DOWN?

    If you’re feeling down, this story about frogs is for you. Once upon a time, there were a bunch of tiny frogs who arranged a running competition. The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower. A big crowd gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants. The race began... No one in the crowd believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower. You heard statements like “Oh, it is WAY too difficult!” “They will NEVER make it to the top.” “Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!” The tiny frogs began collapsing one by one, except for those who ....

  • BELIEVE IN YOURSELF - THE SYDNEY TO MELBOURNE RACE

    BELIEVE IN YOURSELF - THE SYDNEY TO MELBOURNE RACE

    THE SYDNEY TO MELBOURNE RACE The Sydney to Melbourne race snakes across Australia’s beautiful southeast corner, covering a distance of almost 550 miles. It’s considered a real man-killer even by seasoned ultra-runners who are used to racing across the hottest deserts and the coldest, most barren terrains on the planet. In 1983, Cliff Young decided to enter the inaugural event. Cliff was not your average athlete; he was not your average anything. Cliff was frequently responsible for rounding up cattle after violent thunderstorms as a cowhand. He did this without the help of GPS, a Hummer, or small light aircraft. Instead, he ran around on foot ....

  • BELIEVE IN YOURSELF - THE POWER OF MINDSET

    BELIEVE IN YOURSELF - THE POWER OF MINDSET

    BELIEVE IN YOURSELF - THE POWER OF MINDSET As a man passed the elephants, he was intrigued by the giant creatures only held by a small rope tied to their front legs. No chains, no cages. It was apparent that the elephants could, at any time, break away from their bonds but, for some reason, they did not. He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to escape. The trainer explained that "when they are very young and much smaller, we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it's enough to hold them. So they are conditioned at an early age not to escape. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to ....

  • OPTIMISM

    OPTIMISM

    THE LESSON Let’s pretend we are going to grow a garden. If I want: an apple tree? What kind of seeds do I need to plant? a peach tree? What kind of seeds do I need to plant? a tomato plant? What kind of seeds do I need to plant? a nightshade plant? What kind of plant should I get? KEY TAKEAWAYS: 1.Your mind is just like a garden. If you put in the positive, you grow into a positive person. If you put in the negative, you grow into a negative person. You can’t put in the negative and expect to grow into a positive person. That’s impossible. 2.Because our minds work just like a garden, we must be extra careful about what we allow into our minds. In ....

  • THE SHOPPING MALL

    THE STORY In a large Southern city, there is a magnificent shopping center which stands on the former city garbage dump. For over a century no one saw this location as anything but the “garbage dump”. Many years ago, however, some progressive minded citizens started “seeing” that location as a beautiful new shopping center. Immediately, they stopped dumping garbage and started hauling good, clean fill dirt and dumping over the century old garbage. On this foundation, a magnificent new shopping center was built. TWO POINTS TO THIS STORY 1. Notice, you can’t build on garbage. You can’t build a shopping mall on garbage, and neither can you ....

  • THE BONASI AND THE GREAT GENERAL SHERMAN OAK TREE

    THE BONASI AND THE GREAT GENERAL SHERMAN OAK TREE

    THE STORY The Japanese raise a tree called the Bonsai tree. It is beautiful and perfectly formed, however; it is short. In California, we find a forest of giant green trees called Sequoias. General Sherman has become the name of one of these giants. It extends into the sky 272 feet and measures 79 feet in circumference. This tree is so large that if we cut it down, it would produce enough lumber to build 35 five-room houses! The amazing thing is that at one time, the Bonsai and the General Sherman were the same size. They both began as tiny little seeds. However, when the Bonsai tree started to grow, the Japanese pulled it from the ground and tied off its tap- root. This ....

  • 3 THE BEST FRUIT, NOT THE BIGGEST FRUIT

    THE BEST FRUIT Once upon a time, there was a King who announced a massive prize for the person who presented the best fruit. The only condition was that everyone can bring only one. Most of the people were farmers, and their cultivation of fruits was famous in the surrounding kingdoms. Everyone was excited and started finding their best fruit. There was a little boy whose father only owned vines of grapes. When he heard about the King’s announcement, he was very thrilled to participate. He and his father went to their vines and picked the grape that looked the shiniest and tastiest to them. He washed it clean and wrapped it in a clean tissue paper, waiting for the next ....
