Five Great Lessons

1 - Most Important Lesson - "Remember my name"

During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a onscientious student and had breezed through the questions, until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"
 Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank.

 Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade. "Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say 'hello'.

I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.


2 - Second Important Lesson - " Pickup in the Rain"

One night, at 11:30 PM, an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rainstorm.

Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960s.

The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxicab. She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home.
 A special note was attached. It read: "Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but also my spirits Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband's bedside just before he passed away. God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others."

3. - Third Important Lesson - "Always Remember Those Who Serve."

 In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him. "How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked. "Fifty cents," replied the waitress.
 The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the coins in it.   "Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired. By now more people were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing impatient.
 "Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied."

The little boy again counted his coins. "I'll have the plain ice cream," he said. The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left. When the waitress came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels and five pennies.

You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had to have enough left to leave her a tip.


 4 - Fourth Important Lesson - "The Obstacle in Our Path"

 In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king's wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the road clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way.

Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded.

After the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway.

The peasant learned what many of us never understand.

 Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.


5 - Fifth Important Lesson - "Giving When it Counts"

Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare and serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness.

 The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the little boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying," Yes, I'll do it if it will save her."

As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheek. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away?"

Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood in order to save her.

You see, after all, understanding and attitude, are everything.

Learn Life from Animals

A person was tired of facing difficulties again and again in life. He was fed up with life and decided to sucide. God stopped him and came before him. The person asked god why did he save him. He said that he was fed up with life because he was facing troubles repeatedly. God took him to jungle.There a small lion was chasing a zebra for its lunch. This was the first time the lion was hunting without any big lions around  it. Usually at least one big lion will be with him while he was hunting and so the small lion will get its lunch easily. But today it is not the case, the lion was left alone to catch its own meal.

The lion spots a zebra and tries to chase it and kill it. The lion chases the zebra but couldn't kill it as the zebra was big and experienced. The zebra has escaped from the clutch of this lion.
The zebra has escaped this lion as of now. But tomorrow another big lion may chase it up and may or may not kill the zebra.

God said, if the zebra thought that why he has to face this life going struggle daily again and again he would not have grown this big. God also said that you may respond that it doesn't have a brain.
The god asked the person to look at the lion again.

 As we have seen the same lion was tired chasing this zebra and couldn't get its food. It began to search for its lunch and at that time  it spotted a raccoon moving. I would like to remember you again that the lion was small and was hunting for the first time alone. He got no big experience in hinting. The small lion began to chase the raccoon and the raccoon started climbing a tree to escape from the lion and climbed to the top of the tree.

The lion started to climb the tree, The lion  thought it could chase the racoon and get it caught by climbing the tree. It tried hard and started climbing the tree a little. It then began to realize that it cannot be able to proceed further as the racoon does. It began to felt defeat and then thought it will descend the tree and find another lunch.

 A cat can jump from heights and will not get hurt as it is of small weight. But it is not the case of the lion as it is of huge weight. To climb down the tree is the toughest part than climbing up. The reason being it has to bring down its entire weight while coming down. The lion faced many challenges like it got its head caught in a tree trunk and later finally come down.

Generally Big lions dont chase raccoons and climb trees because the lion knows that it cannot climb trees like raccoons by way of experience. This denotes that it also had thinking ability to know that it cannot be able to climb after it tried at least once. So comming back to the zebra , the god said that the troubles for the zebra and you are somewhat same. But I would say that you are far better than the Zebra.

The reason being the zebra has the risk of loosing its life. So  life is full of troubles for every living being in earth. If you started facing it positively, you will survive out of it and become sharper. It is not that every struggle will hit you, it will only mould you more. So start to change your mind to face the struggles instead of thinking why i am having problems again and again in life. Try to beat this and come up in life as life is a struggle.
