A nice inspirational short informative story (Fb-Is1-face)

Once a very rich man died leaving behind 1.9 million worth income for his wife. After his death the wife married their young servant. The servant said- I thought that I used to work for my master, but now I know that my master used to work for me.
From this story we learn that it's important to earn money, but in that process we should not forget to enjoy our life.
Always remember that if you have food to eat, clothes to wear , house to live in and a bed to sleep then you are richer than about 75% people on this earth.

A nice inspiring story that teaches us humanity (Fb-Is2-face)

I sat with my friend in a well-known coffee shop in a neighbouring town of Venice (Itly) the city of lights and water.As we enjoyed our coffee, a man entered and sat at an empty table beside us.He called the waiter and placed his order saying,Two cups of coffee, one of them there on the wall.’We heard this order with rather interest and observed that he was served with one cup of coffee but he paid for two.As soon as he left, the waiter pasted a piece of paper on the wall sayingA Cup of Coffee’.While we were still there, two other men entered and ordered three cups of coffee, two on the table and one on the wall.They had the two cups of coffee but paid for three and left.This time also, the waiter did the same.He pasted a piece of paper on the wall saying, ‘A Cup of Coffee’.It was something unique and perplexing for us.We finished our coffee, paid the bill and left.After a few days, we had a chance to go to this coffee shop again.While we were enjoying our coffee, a man poorly dressed entered.As he seated himself, he looked at the wall and said, ‘One cup of coffee from the wall’.The waiter served coffee to this man with the customary respect and dignity.The man had his Coffee and left without paying.We were amazed to watch all this, as the waiter took off a piece of paper from the wall and threw it in the dust bin.Now it was no surprise for us – the matter was very clear.The great respect for the needy shown by the inhabitants of this town made our eyes well up in tears.Ponder upon the need of what this man wanted…He enters the coffee shop without having to lower his self-esteem…He has no need to ask for a free cup of coffee…Without asking or knowing about the one who is giving this cup of coffee to him.He only looked at the wall, placed an order for himself, enjoyed this coffee and left..Probably the most beautiful wall you may ever see anywhere…!!!!Its what makes us human…

A story that helps to keep a check on ourselves (Fb-Is3-face)

Once a poor milkman used to make butter from his milk and sold it to shopkeepers in the city. This way he and his wife used to earn their living. Once as usual he took packets of his home made butter, which was of 1kg and went to the market. In the market, as usual he sold his butter to a shopkeeper and bought sugar, tea, and other necessary items from the shopkeeper.After the milkman went away, the shopkeeper decided to weigh the butter packets. He first weighed one packet, it was 900 gm. Then he weighed all the other packets, all were 900 gm. The shopkeeper became very angry and decided not to trade with the milkman anymore. Next morning again as the milkman came to sell his butter, the shopkeeper shouted, that you are dishonest. You sell 900 gm butter as 1kg. I don't want to trade with such dishonest person. The milkman very calmly answered, I am a poor person , I dont have any machine to weigh accurately. I just use the 1kg sugar that I buy from you, as a weighing bench for me. The shopkeeper was silent.Before we accuse anyone we should first look inside ourselves.

What you give, comes back to you inspiring story (Fb-Is6-face)

Be kind whenever possible. Its always possible. You are in a scenario where your daughter knocks cup of coffee onto your business shirt in the morning. You have no control over what happened. How you react determines what happens next. Reaction 1: You curse and scold her harshly. She breaks down in tears. You turn to your wife and criticize her. You change your shirt and find your daughter busy crying and missing her school bus. You drive her to school and she runs into the building without saying goodbye. You reach 20minutes late to office and realize you forgot some important papers at home. You arrive home, and find a small wedge in your relationship with your wife and daughter. What a terrible day. Now let's rewind. Coffee splashes over you and your daughter is about to cry but instead of shouting at her you tell her, it's ok honey, be more careful next time. You change your shirt, come back in time to see your child getting on the bus. She turns and waves. You reach office happy and on time. You reach back home, a happy family awaits you. 2 different scenarios , both started the same. Both eneded different. Why? Because of how you reacted. Everything we do, give, say or even think, will come back to us. If you want something in life, you must be ready to give first.

An amazing teaching on human behaviour (Fb-Is9-face)

Once some scientists did a very interesting experience. They kept 5 monkeys in a very big cage and in the center of the cage was fitted a ladder. As expected when one of the monkey saw the banana, he climbed few step of the ladder, but midway water was poured on him, and he went back. Next Water was poured on all the monkeys. This happened many times, as many monkeys individually tried eating the bananas and as a result all were punished. Finally when one of the monkey again went to eat the banana, the other monkeys attacked him, as they knew that they all will be punished for its act. Next the scientists took out one monkey and put in a new monkey. This new one didn't know the rules of the cage, so he just ran towards the bananas, as a result all the other monkeys just attacked him. Again scientists did the same thing, they put in a new monkey. This time also the same thing happened.And the interesting thing was that the earlier new monkey was also involved in the attack. After the experiment all the old monkeys were out, and only the new ones were in, on whom no water was put, but still they didn't allow any other monkey to touch the banana.In human society also the same behaviour exists. Whenever someone tries to start anything new in any field, everyone stops them. Everyone shows them the fear of failure. And the most interesting fact is that most people stopping them will be those who've never ever tried their luck in this field. So if you also want to do something new, your society will definately oppose you. Don't ever be disheartened with that. Use your own logic and guts to reach your aim.

A very thoughtful inspirational story (Fb-Is10-face)

Once a very rich childless man decided to choose a heir for his whole empire. He called all the youngsters of his area and gave each a cow and a cat. He told all of them that feed the cat so much that after one month, when I will want to give it milk, it should refuse it. And whose cat will be the most satisfied, i Will make him my heir.Everyone just fed the cat and none looked after the cow. Only one boy did the reverse and just fed the cow. As a result he could very well feed his family also. He also fed the cat how much it was required, and in the end, used to give him hot milk. As the cat was about to drink milk, he used to beat the cat alot. As a result the cat was afraid of drinking milk.On the main day, all the other cats just drank all the milk. But that youth's cat didn't touch the milk at all. He won the contest and became the heir. His cow was also the Most healthy. The rich man asked the youth you took all care of the cow but still your cat was under your control. How? The youth answered, no matter how much we feed the cat, it will never be satisfied. She can only be controlled through being strict. And by taking care of the Cow, my family, my finance all improved. The same teaching is relevant in our life also. We have to control our greed only through strictness just like the cat.Just feed what is right like the Cow and you will surely earn the reward.
