Arjuna asked Krishna, ‘Why Karna is known to be more liberal than me?’
Krishna showed a mountain of gold and asked Arjuna to give to people in a single day. Arjuna, went to the mountain and broke the mountain rock by rock to give to the people. It took him several days to complete it.
Now, same task was allocated to Karna. He gave all the people the required tools to break the mountain. He asked people to break the mountain and take what ever they wish. Everyone gathered and hit the mountain. They took away what they want and in few hours the entire mountain is vanished.
Krishna told Arjuna, ‘You want everything to be done by you. That is why it took you several days. You determined how much to be given. You didn’t used team work and required tools to break the mountain. Wanted credit for what you are doing. But Karna’s aim was only to break the mountain in a day and distribute it to the people. He used team work, required tools and never claimed credit of giving it from his hands’.
Leaders never claim the team’s credit, they stand in the front at the time of disaster, use right team member at the right place, use right tools and bring team together to complete huge task in short time. —Inspirational story ,Quotes – Inspirational Quotes, Pictures and Motivational Thoughts .

Read this small story; Hope that makes a BIG change in YOU
The Professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see & asked the students “How much do you think this glass weighs?”
’50gms!’….. ‘100gms!’ …..’125 gms’ …the students answered. “I really don’t know unless I weigh it,” said the professor, “but, my question is:
What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?”…. ‘Nothing’ …..the students said..‘Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?’ the professor asked.
‘Your arm would begin to ache’ said one of the student
“You’re right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?”
“Your arm could go numb; you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis & have to go to hospital for sure!”
….. Ventured another student & all the students laughed
But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?” Asked the professor.
‘No’…. Was the answer.
“Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?”
The students were puzzled.
“What should I do now to come out of pain?” asked professor again.
“Put the glass down!” said one of the students
“Exactly!” said the professor.
Life’s problems are something like this.
Hold it for a few minutes in your head & they seem OK.
Think of them for a long time & they begin to ache.
Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything.
It’s important to think of the challenges or problems in your life, But EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to ‘PUT THEM DOWN’ at the end of every day before you go to sleep…
That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh &strong & can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!
So, when you start your day today, Remember friend to ‘PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY! ‘

We humans just love to create problems for ourselves…. Don’t we??
We are the creators of the problems that bother us..
We keep creating hypothetical and unnecessary problems for ourselves… These are just fictitious problems… They don’t actually exist… It’s our natural tendency to attract such problems towards us…
Half of our time is spent in thinking about ..
What will others think about us?? What will they say ?? How will they react ??
One thing that we should understand is that…it’s others’ job to make their own choices of thoughts and actions .. It’s not in our hand to change their thoughts… But what is in our hand is to better ourselves ..To be someone better than today ..and we should focus on doing our own job.. That is to live a happy, and a life free of problems …
“The grass is always greener on the other side”
Other people always seem to be in a better situation than you, although they may not be.
This is the sign of a pessimist and one who is not content with what he has..
The only solution to this problem is ..to be happy and content with what you have ..
start appreciating everything ..have a positive outlook towards life .. feel the happiness from the small things in life ..
“Happiness can be found in the darkest of places if one remembers to turn on the light”
Happiness is not something to be found outside … it is present inside you ..everything that you dream to be ,you already are ..you just need to believe in yourself ..
Another great problem is that…
We create such situations for ourselves today that they lead to problems in future…
This is due to the lazy and unproductive nature of humans…
We do not act productively in the present and then expect the future to be bright…
This is not possible…
We need to act wisely in the present to gain the fruits of it in future…
We should avoid all situations that will cause problems in future.. And hence..
Start working right now..
Running away from challenges and problems won’t solve them ..
You will not face a problem in future is you avoid the situation that will cause it right in the present…
A positive and calm mind is the solution to all our problems…
Narrow mindedness is the root cause of problems… We should always be ready to accept change and have a enthusiastic and zealous approach towards life ..
We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them… Hence accept challenges with an open mind ..Have belief in yourself ..Believe that you have the potential to solve these problems …
“The only way to solve a problem is not to run from it.. But to face it…”
Stay happy. Stay motivated. Stay inspired.

Sometimes our biggest weakness can become our biggest strength. Take, for example, the story of one 10-year-old boy who decided to study Judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a devastating car accident.
The boy began lessons with an old Japanese Judo master. The boy was doing well, so he couldn’t understand why, after three months of training the master had taught him only one move.
“Sensei,” the boy finally said, “Shouldn’t I be learning more moves?”
“This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you’ll ever need to know.” – the sensei replied.
