One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name. Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down. It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers. That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual.
On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire class was smiling. ‘Really?’ she heard whispered. ‘I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!’ and, ‘I didn’t know others liked me so much,’ were most of the comments. No one ever mentioned those papers in class again. She never knew if they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn’t matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose. The students were happy with themselves and one another. That group of students moved on.

I received this article in email from a friend. This is written by a Pakistani Columnist. I would like to believe that there are a lot of people in Pakistan that are embarrassed by what their government and rogue spy agency – ISI – does with India and world at large.

Advice from an Israeli Agent, applies equally to us…..
Juval Aviv was the Israeli Agent upon whom the movie ‘Munich’ was based. He was Golda Meir’s bodyguard, and she appointed him to track down and bring to justice the Palestinian terrorists who took the Israeli athletes hostage and killed them during the Munich Olympic Games.
In a lecture in New York City he shared information that EVERY American needs to know – but that our government has not yet shared with us.
He predicted the London subway bombing on the Bill O’Reilly show on Fox News stating publicly that it would happen within a week. At the time, O’Reilly laughed, and mocked him saying that in a week he wanted him back on the show. Unfortunately, within a week the terrorist attack had occurred.
Juval Aviv gave intelligence (via what he had gathered in Israel and the Middle East) to the Bush Administration about 9/11, a month before it occurred. His report specifically said they would use planes as bombs and target high profile buildings and monuments. Congress has since hired him as a security consultant.
Now for his future predictions. He predicts the next terrorist attack on the U.S. will occur within the next few months.

I generally delete the forwards without even downloading or reading them. But a mail landed in my mailbox from a client who NEVER forwards me mails. I thought it must be something worthy and read the mail. I am glad I read it! 🙂

My long-time buddy Sumit forwarded me a mail.
I always believed that one can’t trust US of A. This mail has confirmed my belief. Have patience and read through it. Although it isn’t as well written as one would like, it’s thought-provoking nonetheless!
Without more jabber here’s the mail.

A whole lot of protest has been going on against the Olympics 2008 in China. The issue of Tibet has hogged lots of lime-light earlier. When a country with iron curtains like China organises an international event of this magnitude, there are bound to be a few controversies as well.
This is a graphical, satirical rendition of a process of how the logo could have been made. 🙂

This article from my inbox is by Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series. Everyone struggles with some bad habit or the other. So here’s some help. 🙂
If you want to distance yourself from the masses and enjoy a rich and unique lifestyle, understand this – your habits will determine your future.
The fact is, if you keep on doing things a certain way, you will get a predictable result. That’s the simple law of Cause and Effect. Successful habits create positive rewards. Negative habits breed negative consequences.
If you want to enjoy longevity, you must have healthy habits. If you are in the habit of starving your most important relationships of time, energy and love, how can you expect a happy outcome? If you spend money on the fly or don’t save any money, your bad habits will lead you to a never-ending cycle of work.
Shift yourself out of your bad habits
Fortunately, you can jump from this bad habits path anytime you want. It’s a very simple process – it just takes some applied focus. Here’s the step-by-step process I recommend: Continue reading “Dump Those Negative Habits Now!”
