#Great #person

*What Is A Great Person?*

"The obstacles we face is our mental barrier which can be broken by adopting more positive approach"

What is a great person? This is a question asked by us to our mentors whom we follow. Here is the definition of a great person.

I feel that a great person is a person of integrity and values that he or she will never compromise. He or she is a great family man or woman who puts their family first and would protect them with their own life.

A great person is willing to help anyone that needs it. Come torrential downpours or Nor'easter snowstorms, they are there when called. Always helping and never hurting.

A great person is respectful of other people's feelings and needs, but holds his or her position highly and never retreats from negative situations, but only stays in them to make peace.

A great person will allow nothing to stand in his or her way of doing the right thing by everyone and will always admit wrong with an apology.

A great person is a father or mother who will sacrifice, whatever needs sacrificing, to do what is best for their children. They realize that children are our future and our future is in their hands.

A great person is a person who never hurts anyone's feelings intentionally and if they do it unknowingly, will humbly apologize, put out the fire and then work it out.

A great person will always be on time and never late. Frequent tardiness to an appointment or anything that has a structured time frame is unacceptable, and if it does happen, offer that apology and never let it happen again.

A great person is a provider... A provider to their family and the foundation on which the family lies. He or she never will let cracks form in their foundation and compromise the structural integrity of it.

A great person is a giver, and not a taker... A forgiver and not a resentment holder... A peacemaker and not a fighter.

A great person is a teacher, a fireman, a policeman, a nurse, a soldier, a volunteer, a case worker or a dss worker, or many more occupations of helping people.

A great person is a person that fails time after time while doing their best and never, ever quits because when they quit, part of them dies when they quit.

A great person will always put the needs of others in front of their own. Always being kind and never showing anger.

A great person has dreams and goals and never let's other people's negativity get in their way of pursuing them.

I guess these are the best examples I can think of what makes a great person, great...

I am not a great person but have a question for you my friend and everyone else reading this....

*Are you a great person???*

#Truth of #life

*Truth of life*
I had a dream and God appeared before me and asked me "What do you want?"

I requested him "Give me back what all that I have lost in my life."

"What are the things you have lost" asked God.

"I have lost a dear friend, more than a brother for me recently. I have lost so many precious things and I can't explain them so easily.

Over the period of time I lost my youth and became old.

I Lost my beauty and figure.

As I aged, I lost my health.

I can't say specifically since I have lost innumerable things. Please give me back all that I have lost."

God simply laughed.

"You lost your ignorance because of your education.
You lost your poverty because of your work.
You lost loneliness because of many relationships and friends.
Because of your good qualities you lost many enemies.
Like this there are so many things you have lost .
Should I tell you and make you count all those items too.
Shall I give you back all these and many more things you have lost too" asked God.

I understood the other side of losing things and the fact that why we lose some things and the need to lose them.

And then he explained to me,
"Nothing you love is lost.
Not really, Things , people .. they always go away , sooner or later.
You can't hold them, any more than you can hold moonlight .
But if they've touched you,
if they're inside you , then they're still yours .
The only things you ever really have are the ones you hold inside your heart."

Keep your loved ones in your heart and they will stay forever, never to be lost.

God disappeared, my dream ended and my heart became light after realising this truth of life.

What never comes from the good times, easy situations, convenient cakewalk projects?


What makes people look forward to the most ambitious/life-threatening projects, with a smile on their lips?


What makes people go for goals that are extremely difficult but certainly remarkable and 'worth it.


What gives maximum momentum when goals and means are out of sight and out of reach?


'Trust creates THRUST'. Without trust, life is difficult and slow. With trust, even the most arduous journey looks worth it.

Seth Godin writes, 'We trust people because they showed up when it wasn't convenient, because they told the truth when it was easier to lie and because they kept a promise when they could have gotten away with breaking it.'

We trust people when VALUES defeat greed.

We trust people for whom 'doing the RIGHT' is more important than 'doing what is convenient.

We trust people when we see, hear and experience their stories of COURAGE.

We trust people when they did what others believed was impossible.

We trust ourselves when we 'go on' instead of 'give up.

We trust ourselves when we are 'just'.

We trust ourselves when we give our 100% plus a little more.

We trust ourselves when we 'fight for the right' and not look the other way.

We trust ourselves when we consistently push the bar 'a little' higher.

We trust ourselves when we assume responsibility for our choices.

People trusting us and we trusting ourselves is equally important. Both are necessary. Both are boundless sources of strength.

Trust cannot be demanded. Trust cannot be bequeathed. Trust HAS TO BE earned.

Every tough time, every difficult project, every challenging situation, every bounce back, every person who needs help, is an opportunity to earn trust.

Go on and earn the trust of someone you deeply care about.

Go on and earn the trust of the relationship you want to develop.

Go on and earn your own trust without which you are a spiritual orphan.

Big Resource + No Trust ------- Starts rich, lives poor.

Big Resource + Full Trust ------- Starts rich, lives rich, becomes richer.

No Resource + Full Trust ------ Starts poor, becomes rich, lives richer.

So, no matter where you start with resources, you must live with full trust, always.

I have learned to look at life through lenses that reads, 'Yet another opportunity to build trust'. After all, true wealth is the 'trust' people 'rightly' have in me.

That is the ultimate test of a life well-lived.
And yes, whatever happens, please never break anyone's trust.

Whatever you will get in return, will not be worth it. Do you agree with me?

Change your thoughts. Change your life

Paryushan is a time for self-analysis and soul searching. Paryushan provides a break from routine life and allows us to reflect and contemplate on our past conduct, in the light of the teachings of Jainism and make a determination to lead a spiritually cleaner life in the future.

A student was one day taking a walk with a professor.
As they went along, they saw lying in the path a pair of old shoes, which they supposed to belong to a poor man who was employed in a field close by, and who had nearly finished his day's work.

The student turned to the professor, saying: "Let us play the man a trick: we will hide his shoes, and conceal ourselves behind those bushes, and wait to see his perplexity when he cannot find them."

"My young friend," answered the professor, "we should never amuse ourselves at the expense of the poor.

But you are rich, and may give yourself a much greater pleasure by means of the poor man.
Put a coin into each shoe, and then we will hide ourselves and watch how the discovery affects him."

The student did so, and they both placed themselves behind the bushes close by.

The poor man soon finished his work, and came across the field to the path where he had left his coat and shoes. While putting on his coat he slipped his foot into one of his shoes; but feeling something hard, he stooped down to feel what it was, and found the coin.

Astonishment and wonder were seen upon his countenance. He gazed upon the coin, turned it round, and looked at it again and again.

He then looked around him on all sides, but no person was to be seen.

He now put the money into his pocket, and proceeded to put on the other shoe; but his surprise was doubled on finding the other coin.

His feelings overcame him; he fell upon his knees, looked up to heaven and uttered aloud a fervent thanksgiving, in which he spoke of his wife, sick and helpless, and his children without bread, whom the timely bounty, from some unknown hand, would save from perishing.

The student stood there deeply moved and affected, and his eyes filled with tears.

"Now," said the professor, "are you not much better pleased than if you had played your intended trick?"

The youth replied, "You have taught me a lesson which I will never forget.

I feel now the truth of those words, which I never understood before:

*'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'*

Give and stay blessed forever.

*What would you like your Obituary to read

*What would you like your Obituary to read*

Can you imagine reading your own obituary in the newspaper?

What would people say about you?

Alfred Nobel got the chance to read his own death notice, and he didn't like what he saw.

Alfred Nobel was a very wealthy and successful man. He had become an expert in chemistry and invented three of the most commonly used explosives in the world - dynamite, gelignite (used in mining) and ballistite, which is still used as a rocket propellant today.

With the huge fortune he made from these inventions, Nobel bought an engineering company called Bofors and turned it into an arms manufacturer. He made another enormous fortune designing cannons and guns and selling them around the world.

Then, in 1888, Alfred's brother died while visiting France.

A French newspaper thought it was Alfred who had died and they published an obituary that began like this: THE MERCHANT OF DEATH IS DEAD. Dr. Alfred Nobel, who became rich by finding ways to kill more people faster than ever before, died yesterday….

Alfred Nobel was shocked. Was this what people thought of him? Was this the legacy he would leave to the world?

That's when he decided to use his vast wealth to make a positive difference. Nobel set up a foundation with $250 million dollars in funding. Every year the foundation would consult the leading experts in the world and hand out prizes to people who had made great contributions to humanity. There would be prizes for sciences, for literature, and for promoting peace.

Today the Nobel Prizes are probably the best known and most prestigious awards in the world. They have been awarded to great scientists, authors and activists and helped draw attention to many outstanding works and worthy causes.

Nobel set up his foundation in 1895: just in time to influence his own obituary. He died only a year later. The Nobel Prizes accomplished his wish; they created a very different legacy for him than a reputation as *The Merchant of Death.*

He is not remembered as an explosives inventor or arms dealer, but as one of the greatest philanthropists of all time. He is also a great example of how it is never too late to change your life and help make the world a better place.

That is the story of *Alfred Noble* and the legacy of *Noble Prizes*.


Assuming you happen to read *your Obituary* what would you like to read. Just take a moment and pen it down. What goals have u set in life for yourself and comparing the two sheets how well does your Obituary list match your goals list.
Am sure this would be quite hard hitting isn't it ?
The truth is all our life we keep running behind things that are just materialistic.
Unfortunately *people are used and things are being loved* the value of relationship the time we get to spend with loved ones is just not looked at.
Try to reflect and create an *obituary of your choice* not every one can be as lucky as *Alfred Noble*
