An Opportunity for You

To some, I am a loser

defeated in the game,

To the rest, I need this suffer

in order for you to win fame.

For worse or for better,

Life is no more the same.

A lesson learned for me, together

with an opportunity for you, No shame!

Do you care about how people think about you?  Do you mind when people misjudge you on the face of one single event, a special situation, or an old experience with your being a novel hand? How do you react when you read a comment sheet saying that you are rude, aggressive, stubborn, selfish, or even intolerable?

Do you know that fighting back with the same negativity will make your situation worse? Are you aware of the reasons why some people will not like you regardless what you do?

Keep in mind: No one will pay attention to a twig broken in the woods, nobody will carry any sympathy toward a dead fly in your kitchen. Why? The twig is invisible in comparison to the forest, thus its misfortune has gone unnoticed; while the fly may be disgusting to be around for the sake of your food safety, thus it has to die! On these examples, we are talking about significant differences between the powerful and the less powerful, between insects and human beings. It’s law of the nature.

If life requires you to let go, accept the fate!

There are times the fight or disagreements happen to people of equivalences. You and your team players  are equivalences, you and your friends are equivalences!

In the game of life, you are attacked maybe because you have better chance of winning, you are screened since you may stand a little taller and may shine a little brighter.

Realizing this, you shall not be disturbed by the words of your opponents! Welcome criticisms, and consider all the sorrows, setbacks, and barriers as opportunities for you to see yourself in a new light, and believe that you are smart, determined, creative, hardworking, and caring!

At times, when someone intends to drag you into the pool to have your drowned, or when it comes to life and death circumstances,  you must be sharp, responsible, even forceful to protect yourself. And you know in this case, NO will be your response, SORRY will be your manner, and DISCONNECT will be your decision!

Just Giggle A Little

Life is never perfect for everyone: high school seniors worry about their college applications; college graduates have troubles landing a satisfactory jobs during economic crisis periods; university professors get frustrated for being unable to obtain tenure track faculty positions due to the lack of research funding; the presidents of the higher education institutions bite their lips and frown when they failed to establish sizable grants to give faculty and staff a raise…

As a result, classes are run mechanically, meetings are held with no cheers or praises, and the media reports crimes in high volumes and features articles filled with negative comments or complaints. Everyone starts to view life as miserable and unfortunate as it can be.

Step back, see things in a different light, you will know that when one door is closed behind you, another door is open. A smile is a sunshine, it enlightens a village around you, Having a laughter over your own mistakes, worries, and stresses will free your spirit at first, reprogram your brain cells to produce healthier or smoother train of thoughts, and whenever you feel like rejected, being let down, or overwhelmed by the situation around you, you know how to switch the channels and turn yourself on by giving jingle giggles, just a little at a time, it evaporates the wetness and heaviness instantly.

Everyone is a mirror, when you smile at your neighbors, they will smile back with positive assumptions, when you praise your coworkers, they praise you back in similar fashions, when you focus on what you could give to the poor, the learning disabled, or the disadvantaged, instead of what you might gain from them, you freed yourself and win respects, admiration, and approvals. Show people the ways you wanted to be seen, heard, and discussed, they will show you the same.

No matter whom you are and where you come from, please take the magical weapon for success: relax, smile, and let the faith you have in life to take charges. Just

Giggle a little,

Jingle your bells;

Wiggle a little,

Fine-tune your body;

Google a little,

Renew your spirits,

Yahoo a little,

Refresh your memories!
