Just came across this finding & we can take a lot of cues form this in our life. Like a frog we all react when there is instant change / impact in life and we ignore slow change / impact in life.
If the temperature of the water is suddenly increased, the frog realises it and jumps out of the water.
But if the temperature is very slowly increased, one degree at a time, the frog does not realise it till it boils to death.
Once a boy went to a shop with his mother. The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed him a bottle with sweets and said ‘Dear Child..u can take the sweets.
But the child didnt take. The shop keeper was surprised. Such a small child he is and why is he not taking the sweets from the bottle. Again he said take the sweets.
Now the mother also heard that and said.. take the sweets dear. Yet he didnt take. The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets. He himself took the sweets and gave to the child. The child was happy to get two hands full of sweets.
While returning Â home the Mother asked the child… Why didnt you take the sweets, when Â the shop keeper told you to take?
Can you guess the response:
Child replies… Mom! my hands are very small and if i take the sweets i can only take few.. but now you see when uncle gave with his big hands. How many more sweets i got!
When we take we may get little but when God or Supreme Authority gives… HE gives us more beyond our expectations. more than what we can hold..!!
One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean he was really friendly. So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!’ This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks.. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you. Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.. The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.Â
Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so….Â Love the people who treat you right. Forgive the ones who don’t. Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!
Have a garbage-free day!
