Day with a Difference – 02-May-12

Quote of the day

“I am only one, But still I am one. I cannot do everything, But still I can do something; And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” – Edward Everett Hale

Thought of the day –Who pushed me?

There was a wealthy man who wanted to choose a husband for his only daughter. One day he invited the eligible young men from the whole town. During the occasion, when everyone was present he made an announcement, "Today, I am going to choose a husband for my daughter. Anyone who can swim across this pool can have my daughter’s hand in marriage and inherit half of my wealth. The only challenge is that the pool is full of alligators." With that announcement everyone present was silent. Suddenly, there was a loud splash, and in a matter of seconds a young man swam across the pool to the other side. Everybody cheered at the heroic feat of the young man. The wealthy man walked towards the young man and congratulated him. The young man said, "Sir, I am not interested in marrying your daughter. What I want to know is the name of the person who pushed me into the pool?"

There are various types of motivation, and the one that is related to the above story is "fear" motivation. Sometimes, to bring out the best in us or in others, we have to use fear motivation. We have potentials within us but we need to stir it up with motivation and inspiration. However, fear motivation will only work in the short term, because people will get accustomed to it in the long run.

Joke of the day

One night at the dinner table, the wife commented, "When we were first married, you took the small piece of steak and gave me the larger. Now you take the large one and leave me the smaller; You don’t love me any more…" "Nonsense, darling," replied the husband, "you just cook better now."

Have a nice day!

Warm regards,
