::: Michael What’s The Cost Of This Cloth :::

This Story Can Change The Way You Think

Michael Jordan Was An African-American Man, Born In 1963, In The Slums Of Brooklyn, New York.
He Had Four Brothers And His Father’s Wages Were Not Sufficient To Provide For The Whole Family.
He Grew Up In A Poor Neighborhood Which Was Full Of Discrimination, To The Point Where He Could Not See Any Hope For The Future.

When He Was 13 Years Old, His Father Gave Him A Piece Of Used Clothing And Asked: “What Do You Think The Value Of This Outfit Would Be?”

Jordan Replied, “Maybe One Dollar.”

His Father Asked, “Can You Sell It For Two Dollars? If You Can Sell It, It Would Mean That You Are A Big Help To Your Father And Mother. ”

Jordan Nodded His Head, “I’ll Try, But No Guarantee That I’ll Be Successful.”

Jordan Carefully Washed The Clothes Clean. Because They Didn’t Have An Iron, To Smoothen Out Clothes, He Leveled It With A Clothes Brush On A Flat Board, Then Kept It In The Sun To Dry. The Next Day, He Brought The Clothes To A Crowded Underground Station. After Offering It For More Than Six Hours. Jordan Finally Managed To Sell It For $2. He Took The Two Dollar Bill And Ran Home.

After That, Everyday He Looked For Used Clothing, Washed And Ironed It And  Sold It In The Crowd.
More Than Ten Days Later, His Father Again Gave Him A Piece Of Used Clothing, “Now Think Of A Way That You Can Sell These Clothes For 20 Bucks?”

Jordan Said, “How Is It Possible? This Outfit Can Only Fetch Two Dollars At The Most. ”

His Father Replied In An Effort To Inspire Him, “Why Don’t You Try It First? There Must Be A Way.”

Finally, Jordan Got An Idea He Asked For Cousin’s Help To Paint A Picture Of Donald Duck And Mickey Mouse On The Garment. Then He Tried To Sell It In The School Where The Children Of The Rich Study. Soon A Housekeeper, Who Was There To Pick His Master, Bought Clothes For His Master. The Master Was A Little Boy Of Only 10 Years But Was Very Fond Of Clothes. He Loved It So Much And He Gave A Five Dollar Tip. 25 Dollars Was A Huge Amount For Jordan, The Equivalent Of A Month’s Salary Of His Father.

When He Got Home, His Father Gave Him Yet Another Piece Of Used Clothing. “Are You Able To Resell It At A Price Of 200 Dollars?” His Eyes Lit Up.

This Time, Jordan Accepted The Clothes Without The Slightest Doubt. Two Months Later A Popular Movie Actress From The Movie “Charlie’s Angels”, Farah Fawcett Came To New York For Her Movie Promos. After The Press Conference, Jordan Made His Way Through The Security Forces To Reach The Side Of Farah Fawcett And Requested Her Autograph On The Piece Of Clothing. When Fawcett Saw This Innocent Child Asking For Her Autograph, She Gladly Signed It.

Jordan Was Shouting Very Excitedly, “This Is A Jersey Signed By Miss Farah Fawcett, The Selling Price Is 200 Dollars!” He Auctioned Off The Clothes, To A Businessman For A Price Of 1,200 Dollars!

Upon Returning Home, His Father By Broke Into TEARS And Said, “I Am Amazed That You Did It My Child!  You’re Really Great! ”

That Night, Jordan Slept Alongside His Father. His Father Said, “Son, In Your Experience Selling These Three Pieces Of Clothing, What Did You Learn About Success?”

Jordan Replied, “Where There’s A Will, There’s A Way.”

His Father Nodded His Head, Then Shook His Head, “What You Say Is Not Entirely Wrong! But That Was Not My Intention. I Just Wanted To Show You That A Piece Of Used Clothing Which Is Worth Only A Dollar Can Also Be Increased In Value, Then How About Us – Living & Thinking Humans? We Maybe Darker And Poorer, But What’s The Difference? ”

This Thought Enlightened Young Jordan. Even A Piece Of Used Clothing Could Be Made Dignified, Then Why Not Me? There Is Absolutely No Reason To Underestimate Myself.

From Then On, Michael Jordan Felt That His Future Would Be Beautiful And Full Of Hope.

::: WILMA – An Inspiration :::

Inspirational, Story Of D Day

WilmaRudolphForBLOGSTORY

::: THE WILMA RUDOLPH STORY :::

Wilma Rudolph was born into a poor home in Tennessee. At age four, she had double pneumonia with scarlet fever, a deadly combination which left her paralyzed with polio.

She had to wear a brace and the doctor said she would never put her foot on the earth. But her mother encouraged her; she told Wilma that with God-given ability, persistence and faith she could do anything she wanted.

Wilma said, “I want to be the fastest woman on the track on this earth.” At the age of nine, against the advice of the doctors, she removed the brace and took the first step the doctors had said she never would.

At the age of 13, she entered her first race and came way, way last. And then she entered her second, and third and fourth and came way, way last until a day came when she came in first.

At the age of 15 she went to Tennessee State University where she met a coach by the name of Ed Temple. She told him, “I want to be the fastest woman on the track on this earth.” Temple said, “With your spirit nobody can stop you and besides, I will help you.”

The day came when she was at the Olympics and at the Olympics you are matched with the best of the best. Wilma was matched against a woman named Jutta Heine who had never been beaten.

The first event was the 100-meter race. Wilma beat Jutta Heine and won her first gold medal. The second event was the 200-meter race and Wilma beat Jutta a second time and won her second gold medal.

The third event was the 400-meter relay and she was racing against Jutta one more time. In the relay, the fastest person always runs the last lap and they both anchored their teams. The first three people ran and changed the baton easily.

When it came to Wilma’s turn, she dropped the baton. But Wilma saw Jutta shoot up at the other end; she picked the baton, ran like a machine, beat Jutta a third time and won her third gold medal.

It became history: That a paralytic woman became the fastest woman on this earth at the 1960 Olympics.

(*Adapted from Star Ledger, November 13, 1994.)

::: The Ant and The Contact Lens :::

Inspirational, Story Of D Day

The-Ant-and-the-Contact-Lens

::: The Ant and The Contact Lens :::

Brenda was a young woman who was invited to go rock climbing. Although she was very scared, she went with her group to a tremendous granite cliff. In spite of her fear, she put on the gear, took hold of the rope, and started up the face of the rock.

Well, she got to a ledge where she could take a breather. As she was resting there, the safety rope snapped against Brenda’s eye and knocked out her contact lens. There she was, on a rock ledge, with hundreds of feet below her and hundreds of feet above her.

Of course, she looked and looked and looked, hoping her contact lens had landed on the ledge, but it was just not there. Here she was, far from home, her sight was now blurry. Brenda was desperate and began to get upset. She prayed to the Lord to help her to find it.

When she got to the top, a friend examined her eye and her clothing for the lens, but there was no contact lens to be found. Despondent, she sat down with some of the party waiting for them to make it up the face of the cliff. She looked out across the range of mountains and thought of the  verse that said: “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth …” She thought “Lord, you can see these mountains. You know every stone and leaf and you know exactly where my contact lens is. Please help me.

Finally, she walked down the trail to the bottom. A new party of climbers was just starting up the face of the cliff. One of them shouted out: “Hey guys! Anybody lose a contact lens?” Well, that would be startling enough, but do you know where the climber saw it? An ant was moving slowly across the face of the rock, carrying it on his back.

The story gets better. Brenda’s father is a cartoonist. When she told him the incredible story of the ant, her prayer and the contact lens, he drew a picture of an ant lugging that contact lens with the words: “Lord, I don’t know why you want me to carry this thing. I can’t eat it, and it’s awfully heavy. But if that’s what you want me to do; I’ll carry it for you.

::: MORAL :::

I think it would do some of us good to occasionally say, “God, I don’t know why you want me to carry this load. I can’t see any good in it and it’s awfully heavy. But if you want me to carry it, I will.”

You see, we all have a burden to carry and sometimes we don’t know why. It could be just because we are to be an example to someone else or by answered prayer by being humble before God.

God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called. Yes, I do love God. He is my source and my Saviour. He keeps me functioning each and every day. Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him … “I can do all things which strengthened me.”

::: Message Of D Day :::

Inspirational, Message Of D Day

PLEASE READ SLOWLY
IT’S VERY IMPORTANT:

You are a child of God, but you don’t know that yet. You are a part of the God-consciousness, and although you can feel unworthy, unlovable or a hundred other self-limiting things, you cannot be any of them. The saving grace is that you are already the magnificent being you are “becoming.” The evolution that is taking place is not in who you are, it is in who you think you are. The change will be in your consciousness, in your awareness.

Your feelings of unworthiness have only a modest connection to the events of the present or even your past lives. Your life experiences reinforce those feelings, but in most cases, life events simply do not have the potency to generate the intensity of feeling you hold around the issue of unworthiness.

In its most basic form, the ego creates a sense of “you” which is different from your sense of “them.” This differentiation provides a wedge that can be used to create a sense of separation. The ego either makes others “less than” us by giving us a false sense of superiority or makes us “less than” them by creating feelings of shame, inadequacy or guilt.

Either way, you use the feeling of separation to find “reasons” to hold back and not risk being close. It gives you a myth of insulation from the vagaries of life. You can blame others, rationalize away an insult or in the alternative, beat yourself up, creating separation through self-debasement. But, ignoring the long-term implications (which it does), the ego provides a crutch to help you get through difficult moments.

The ego manifests through belief: “I am better/worse than her.” “I am beautiful/ugly, smart/stupid, etc., etc. It doesn’t really matter what “it” is, so long as it can create a difference that the ego can use. And although a belief may contain an element of truth, beliefs blow everything out of proportion so that your rationalizations will hold up and can pander to your fear. (Remember, beliefs are different than Truth.)

You may be overweight, and this is factual, but to create a belief that you are therefore a bad person, if you think about it, is just plain nuts! Yes, there are issues that you need to address, but these do not make you an unacceptable or substandard person! But, seeing yourself as bad does distract you from having to address the deeper pain that caused you to put on the weight in the first place. And that takes us back to your relationship with The Creator.
