Die Empty

One of the most beautiful books to read is “Die Empty” by Todd Henry.

The author was inspired and got this idea of writing this book while attending a business meeting.

When the director asked the audience: “Where is the richest land in the world?”
One of the audience answered: “Oil-rich Gulf states.”
Another added: “Diamond mines in Africa.”
Then the director said: “No it is the cemetery. Yes, it is the richest land in the world, because millions of people have departed, “they have died” and they carried many valuable ideas that did not come to light and benefited others. It is all in the cemetery where they are buried.”

Inspired by this answer, Todd Henry wrote his book “Die empty” where he did his best to motivate people to pour out their ideas and potential energies in their communities and turn them into something useful before it is too late.

The most beautiful of what he said in his book is: “Do not go to your grave and carry inside you the best that you have. *Always choose to die empty*

The TRUE meaning of this expression, is to die empty of all the goodness that is within you.

Deliver it to the world, before you leave

If you have an idea, perform it.
If you have a knowledge, give it out.
If you have a goal, achieve it.
Love, share and distribute, do not keep it inside.

Shall we begin to give and spread every atom of goodness inside us.

Start the race…. *Die Empty*…
🙏👍🤞👌🙏

Recently seen a young girl brought to my clinic for checkup .

She was brought by mother for a THROUGH Checkup.
Mother suspected that the daughter had Sexual Intercourse (with consent) or was molested by a friend.
On detailed history and examination, her apparent “Friend” was an equally Young boy whom she got to know over “Instagram” only 10 days ago😱.
This was followed by a brief ‘Making out session’ in a hotel room.☺
Mothers please be very alert and cautious with teenage children around.
Communication is the key for most of the adolescent problems .
Avoid Smart phones till children are 18 or more.
If not possible,then Keep yourself updated,
keep check on their posts and especially photos on Instagram.
Checks on Snapchat etc.

Live your life before life becomes lifeless.

Live your life before life becomes lifeless !!!

-A boat is docked in a tiny Mexican fishing village.

A tourist complimented the local fishermen on the quality of their fish and asked how long it took to catch them.

“Not very long.” they answered in unison.

“Why didn’t you stay out longer and catch more?”

The fishermen explained that their small catches were sufficient to meet their needs and those of their families.

“But what do you do with the rest of your time?”

“We sleep late, fish a little, play with our children, and take siestas with our wives. In the evenings, we go into the village to see our friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs.

We have a full life.”
The tourist interrupted,

“I am an MBA from Harvard and I can help you!
You should start by fishing longer every day.
You can then sell the extra fish you catch.
With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat.”

“And after that?”

“With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers.
Instead of selling your fish to a middle man, you can then negotiate directly with the processing plants and maybe even open your own plant.

You can then leave this little village and move to Mexico City , Los Angeles , or even New York City !

From there you can direct your huge new enterprise.”

“How long would that take?”

“Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years.” replied the tourist.

“And after that?”

“Afterwards? Well my friend, that’s when it gets really interesting,” answered the tourist, laughing. “When your business gets really big, you can start buying and selling stocks and make millions!”

“Millions? Really? And after that?” asked the fishermen.

“After that you’ll be able to retire, live in a tiny village near the coast, sleep late, play with your children, catch a few fish, take a siesta with your wife and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying your friends.”

“With all due respect sir, but that’s exactly what we are doing now. So what’s the point wasting twenty-five years?” asked the Mexicans.

And the moral of this story is:

Know where you’re going in life, you may already be there! Many times in life, money is not everything.

“Live your life before life becomes lifeless”.

SIBLINGS DAY …

SIBLINGS DAY …

Siblings Day is a holiday recognized annually in some parts of the United States on April 10, honoring the relationships of siblings.

Unlike Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, it is not federally recognized, though the Siblings Day Foundation is working to change this.

The US holiday was originally conceived by Claudia Evart to honor the memory of her brother and sister who loved each other, both of whom died at early ages

The Siblings Day Foundation was incorporated in 1997 and achieved non-profit status in 1999

Carolyn Maloney, then the U.S. Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district, officially saluted the holiday and introduced it into the official Congressional Record of the United States Congress on April 10, 1997; and in subsequent years 2001, 2005 and 2008

Approximately 80% of people do have siblings

The holiday is intended to be a celebration of the relationship of brothers and sisters.

Examples of commemoration during this observance include giving your sibling a gift (including a surprise gift), a giftcard, and taking one out for dinner. Nonmaterial examples of observances during this day includes giving hugs to your sibling(s), enjoying time with them, honoring their presence in your life, and shouting them out on various social media platforms using childhood photos.

In the Online Era…. someday somewhere !!

Internet has a great influence in our lives. We may or may not realize, but it has changed a lot in our lives. We are surrounded by mobile phones, computers and many other electronic devices all the time. Actually sometimes you might actually feel being a slave of these devices. These changes are both advantageous as well as not so much advantageous for us.

Social networks like Facebook and Twitter allow us to connect with people who, in a pre-Internet age, we might not have known about. On an average, people at facebook have 350 friends. Also, one tweet from twitter, shakes the whole country, change opinions of millions of people in a second.

You can stream almost anything online now.  Music, TV , Movies and other forms of entertainment are available in convenient ways online, and people are going for it.

Skipping the Queues:  Flipkart, Amazon etc.,  have changed our lives a lot…There’s no shortage of online stores nowadays. And with the fierce competition, they are giving competitive pricing.  Moreover, the cost of maintenance of a mall, and other costs lead to lowering of prices, from their end if bought online.

Showcasing our creativity : Writers, artists and other creative types are finding a lot of use for the Internet. Some writers have had their books published through e-publishers, skyrocketing them into the top-level tiers of fame. Others have started blogs, online accounts and online business through some websites to get their material out there and connect to an audience as well as earn a handsome amount of money.

We Multitask !!   Multi-tasking existed long before the Internet, of course, but with numerous smartphones — and tabs ! Infinite tabs! — has made multitasking both easier and more damaging. Order food, shopping, manage bank account, office jobs can all be done effectively in a similar span of time.

But then ..

Thinking Capacity reduced :  These days, whenever teacher gives assignment to students, they tend to go to the internet, copy all the material and just submit it as it is. This just reduce the thinking capacity of students. Google has answer to almost everything in this world and so people do not actually think themselves or search from Books.

Addiction:  After drugs and alcohol, internet is the third most addictive thing. Once you get addicted to internet – it can be social networking gaming sites, or even gambling websites., it is very difficult to come back.

Hackers, Scams!!  In today’s world, where everyone has internet access but not everyone has right knowledge about what is right and what is wrong on the internet, it becomes a quiet security threat.  Scams on internet have been increasing many folds in the past few days and have continued to scam innocent people;  These scam artists work quite efficiently, by tricking and fooling people in lure of more money or any other tactics.

Reduction in real human interactions : Let us face it, with the emergence of more and more social media platforms and sites, people have shifted to more electronic interaction and have resulted in a loss of human touch. This is also a leading cause of depression and a major negative aspects of internet.

In this Online Era;  someday somewhere  we could easily hear a conversation as below:

Hello! Is this Gordon’s Pizza?

No sir, it’s Google’s Pizza.

Did I dial the wrong number?

No sir, Google has bought the Gordon’s pizza store.

Oh, alright – then I would like to place an order please.

Okay sir, do you want the usual?

The usual? You know what my usual is?

According to the caller ID, the last 15 times you have ordered a 12-slice with double-cheese, sausage, and thick crust.

Okay – that’s what I want this time too.

May I suggest that this time you order an 8-slice with ricotta, arugula, and tomato instead?

No, I hate vegetables.

But your cholesterol is not good.

How do you know?

Through the subscribers guide… We have the results of your blood tests for the last 7 years.

Maybe so, but I don’t want the pizza you suggest – I already take medicine for high cholesterol.

But you haven’t taken the medicine regularly. 4 months ago you purchased from Drugsale Network a box of only 30 tablets.

I bought more from another drugstore.

It’s not showing on your credit card sir.

I paid in cash.

But according to your bank statement you did not withdraw that much cash.

I have another source of cash.

This is not showing on your last tax form, unless you got it from an undeclared income source.

To HELL With Your Pizza.. !!  ENOUGH !!

I am sick of Google, Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp. I am going to an island without internet, where there’s no cellphone line, and no one to spy on me …

I understand sir, but you’ll need to renew your PASSPORT …it expired 5 weeks ago.
🤣
