Very Emotional Heart Touching short Story
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.
He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water.
She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk He drankit slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she
replied “Mother has taught us never to accept payment for a kindness.”
He said… “Then I thank you from my heart.”
As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt; stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.
Years later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled.They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation.
When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her.
He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.
After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval.
He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room.She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for
it all. Finally, she looked, and something caught her attention on the side as she read these words…… ” Paid in full with one glass of milk.”
(Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.
Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: “Thank You, GOD, that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands.”

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. —

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.
