Speeding Ticket

When asked by a young patrol officer: "Ma'am...Did you know you were speeding"?
This 83-year-old woman talked herself out of a ticket by stating, "Yes, but... I had to get there before I forgot where I was going."

Makes perfect sense to me...

A quote from Mark Twain:

"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect."

Have you observed that if you do what everyone else is doing you will get where everyone else is going? Most times that is not where I would like to be!

One of the more pivotal quotes in my life came while I was at a network marketing event. The speaker said something along the lines of, "In order to attain goals others have not reached, you need to use methods they have not attempted."

Hot Chocolate

A group of graduates, well established in their careers, were talking at a reunion and decided to go visit their old university professor, now retired. During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints about stress in their work and lives. Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of cups – porcelain, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some quite exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the hot chocolate.

When they all had a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the professor said: "Notice that all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. The cup that you're drinking from adds nothing to the quality of the hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was hot chocolate, not the cup; but you consciously went for the best cups... ...and then you began eyeing each other's cups.

Now consider this: LIFE is the hot chocolate; your JOB, MONEY and POSITION in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life. The cup you have does not define, nor change the quality of life you have.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the hot chocolate God has provided us. God makes the hot chocolate, man chooses the cups. The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything that they have.

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. And enjoy your hot chocolate!
