Thought of the day # 54

…90% of the things you worry about don’t even happen. Stop worrying about what can go wrong, and get excited about what can go right.Worrying is just a waste of time. It doesn’t change anything. Only messes with your mind and steals your happiness.

It is better to be useful than to be beautiful

There was a peacock who often boasted about his beauty. Everyday he walked to the banks of a large lake and looked his own reflections and said, oh! what a beautiful bird I am! look at my colourful tail.”

once the peacocks saw a crane on the banks of the lake. He said with a sneer to the crane,

“what a colourless bird you are!

you have no beautiful and colourful feathers like mine” .

The crane replied, “Of course! I don’t have beautiful feathers but my feathers can make me fly across the lake. Can your feathers make you fly?”

There was no reply from the peacock.

Trust

Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.The toughest thing about the power of trust is that it’s very difficult to build and very easy to destroy.Deciding whether or not to trust a person is like deciding whether or not to climb a tree, because you might get a wonderful view from the highest branch, or you might simply get covered in sap, and for this reason many people choose to spend their time alone and indoors, where it is harder to get a splinter. Trust yourself, you will start to trust others.A man who doesn’t trust himself can never truly trust anyone else.Trust is a skill learned over time so that, like a well-trained athlete, one makes the right moves, usually without much reflection. Trust opens up new and unimagined possibilities. You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough.Trust is like blood pressure. It’s silent, vital to good health, and if abused it can be deadly. Trust, but verify.
