So who are the real robbers here?

During a robbery in Guangzhou, China, the bank robber shouted to everyone in the bank: “Don’t move. The money belongs to the State. Your life belongs to you.”

Everyone in the bank laid down quietly. This is called “Mind Changing Concept” Changing the conventional way of thinking.
When a lady lay on the table provocatively, the robber shouted at her: “Please be civilized! This is a robbery and not a rape!”
This is called “Being Professional” Focus only on what you are trained to do! 

When the bank robbers returned home, the younger robber (MBA-trained) told the older robber (who has only completed Year 6 in primary school): “Big brother, let’s count how much we got.”
The older robber rebutted and said: “You are very stupid. There is so much money it will take us a long time to count. Tonight, the TV news will tell us how much we robbed from the bank!”
This is called “Experience.” Nowadays, experience is more important than paper qualifications! 

After the robbers had left, the bank manager told the bank supervisor to call the police quickly. But the supervisor said to him: “Wait! Let us take out $10 million from the bank for ourselves and add it to the $70 million that we have previously embezzled from the bank”.
This is called “Swim with the tide.” Converting an unfavorable situation to your advantage!

The supervisor says: “It will be good if there is a robbery every month.”
This is called “Killing Boredom.” Personal Happiness is more important than your job.

The next day, the TV news reported that $100 million was taken from the bank. The robbers counted and counted and counted, but they could only count $20 million. The robbers were very angry and complained: “We risked our lives and only took $20 million. The bank manager took $80 million with a snap of his fingers. It looks like it is better to be educated than to be a thief!”
This is called “Knowledge is worth as much as gold!” 

The bank manager was smiling and happy because his losses in the share market are now covered by this robbery.
This is called “Seizing the opportunity.” Daring to take risks! 

So who are the real robbers here?

Limited amounts of breaths

“We only have a limited amounts of breaths, how are we/you going to use them?”

So here you are , reading this post from behind your mobile / computers screen / laptop or i pad. You might be on a break from work/school or enjoying your vacation or just browsing around the internet.
After reading this , what’s next? Do you have things to do , are you busy ? Where do you see yourself at this time next year? And do you already have a 5 year plan scedueled out?

Girls are most likely to have their life plan figured out at a really young age. Graduate from high school then moving out or/and going to college/uni. After graduating college/uni probably getting engaged to their boyfriend, moving in together , found a full time job that fit’s their education , get married and have children BEFORE they hit 30..Perfect isn’t it?

Boys MAY have the same goals, but slightly different. They don’t have the pressure of having babies or being a parent before a certain age. They might have more luck finding a Job sooner. And might not bother being single , because they aren’t ready for commitment as much as women are.

Anyway … It all depends on who they are , where they life .. And so on.

But wait a minute …. Is that what life is all about? -> school , graduate , job , get married , have children. Life passes us by while we do these things. And everything what happens in-between these things is what life ACTUALY is all about. Going to our first ball/prom , our birthdays , your first ride on a bike , conquering a sickness , your family , your friends , achieving a world record , winning at a competition you have trained so hard for , summer holidays , and all the memories you have / will / and are going to build for now and the rest of your life..

Where are we heading and why do we want what we want NOW? Do we even know what the end is ? When are you totally happy with your life and when can you finally say that ‘ You made it !’ What is IT? Has anybody ever found IT ?!

It can’t be ‘having all the money in the world’. It can’t be ‘ being the most famous person on earth’. It can’t be ‘ finally succesfully committing revenge on your enemy’s” It can’t be ‘ being the ruler of the world’ It can’t be ‘ having the most friends in the world’ It can’t be anywhing we could ever imagine..

I think that the journey we make to our goal ( whatever that may be) is what makes our lives interesting , worth living , and exciting.

So what do you life for ?

 

Just like a bird

flying-birds

A bird  sitting on a branch of a tree is not afraid by the shaking branch. Because the bird trust not on the branch but on his own wings. Beleive in yourself…

If you feel you are losing the ground under your feet , don’t sweat it. It’s ok because that ground isn’t your only foundation. You have ‘wings’you can ‘fly’. You are the one who has your own life in control. You can change the place you are if you feel like it isn’t you place. That’s the beauty of being in control over our ow body , mind and soul. It may look hard but always remember that every little step toward succes , progress , change .. is one step closer. It just takes one step at a time. And you might me a slow ‘stepper’ but eventualy you will get there..

Just be

“And the river will answer: I’m not trying to be useful; I’m trying to be river ” #Manuscriptfoundinaccra

What does this quote teach us? It tells us that it’s ok to be yourself. Don’t try to please everybody , because at the end of the day you will discover that you can’t please everyone.The one’s who love and appericiate you will come naturally. You don’t need to try so hard. Because if you have to try verry hard for them to like you , it means that their compassion isn’t sincere. So be true to yourself and JUST BE YOU!
