In the country of Armenia, in 1988, Samuel and Danielle sent their young son, Armand, off to school.
Samuel squatted before his son and looked him in the eye. "Have a good day at school, and remember, no matter what, I’ll always be there for you." They hugged and the boy ran off to school.
Hours later, a powerful earthquake rocked the area.
Got a lovely message and though a bit long, I found it surely worth a read and #TooGoodNotToShare
The gist of golf in one message and I am certain all #Golfers will love it !!
Like faith, golf requires us to lose our "old nature."
We first must learn the proper grip. Nature tells us to grip the club tightly, in golf though, a tight grip keeps us from meeting the ball squarely and it sails off in a wayward direction. This teaches us to keep a grip, a gentle grip, on our thoughts and emotions.
"According to Psychologists, there are four types of Intelligence:
1) Intelligence Quotient (IQ) 2) Emotional Quotient (EQ) 3) Social Quotient (SQ) 4) Adversity Quotient (AQ)
#IntelligenceQuotient (IQ): this is the measure of your level of comprehension. You need IQ to solve maths, memorize things, and recall lessons.
Man chooses things or makes his decisions through his inner radar, which is his heart.
Once upon a time, a young newly wed couple lived in a small farm far away. They were poor and had no means of earning their livelihood.
One day the newly married man thought of leaving that field and going somewhere far away to find a job.
I don’t have crow’s feet,
I have happy happy memories of laughing with friends until the tears flowed.
I don’t have frown lines,
I have the marks of my frustration and confusion, which I battled through, smiling in the end.
I am not going grey,
I have shimmering highlights of wisdom, dashed throughout my silver hair.

I Read a beautiful verse and reading every single word, I thought as if I it was written for me and by someone who knows me …
Each word is so very true in my current situation .

I counted my years and realized that I have less time to live by, than I have lived so far.
I have more past than future.
I feel like that boy who got a bowl of cherries.
At first,he gobbled them,
but when he realized there were only few left, he began to taste them intensely.
A Teacher gave a toffee to each of the children of the class and then said a strange thing “Listen children; please do not eat this toffee for the next ten minutes & he walked out of the classroom
There was pin drop silence in the classroom for a few moments, every child was looking at the toffee in front of them and it was difficult to stop themselves with each passing moment.
After the Ten minutes are over the teacher enters the class & reviews on who is doing what ..
When a huge Airbus A380 was flying across the Atlantic, there happened to be a small fighter jet patrolling nearby.
The fighter pilot slowed down, flew side by side with the Airbus, and then greeted the old Airbus captain with the communication radio:
"Hi, Captain Airbus, is long-distance flying boring?
“In 1979, I was managing a Wendy's in Port Richey, Florida.
Unlike today, staffing was never a real problem, but I was searching for a someone to work three hours a day only at lunch.
I went thru all my applications and most were all looking for full time or at least 20 hours per week. I found one however, buried at the bottom of a four-inch stack that was only looking for lunch part-time. His name was Nicky.
A few years ago there was a conference in the United States on investment and finance. During the question and answer session, one of the speakers was asked a question that had everyone laughing.
If he, the richest man in the world, could accept that his daughter marry a poor or modest man?
He said & his answer can change something in everyone-
“First of all,understand that Wealth does not mean having a fat bank account. Wealth is primarily the ability to create wealth.
Do you know the difference between a beggar and a business man?
Please read to the end to get the full gist of it ..
Once, a beggar while begging in a train, noticed a well-dressed businessman wearing a suit and boots.
He thought that this man must be very rich, so he will surely give good money if I ask him.
So he went and asked that man for alms.

1. Don’t call someone more than twice continuously. If they don’t pick up your call, presume they have something important to attend to.
2. Return money that you have borrowed even before the person that borrowed you remember or ask for it. It shows your integrity and character. Same goes with umbrellas, pens and lunch boxes.
3. Never order the expensive dish on the menu when someone is giving you a lunch/dinner.

✅I just realized that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.
