This is one of the things I am trying to achieve.(Stress on the word achieve). You need to get serious in your life in order to succeed. These are the words of my parents and respectable elders. This holds true all around the world. Nice to know about the things binding the whole world as one or the common things which I am unaware of.
I have changed drastically in last 2-3 years. I was North pole before that and now I have become South pole. It is the same me but there is a widened curve on my face. Most of us call it smile. This smile is now a trouble to me. Now start laughing at me. Seriously.. Seriously… Nobody takes me seriously. I was enjoying this for all the time because of getting new friends. But now I want to be serious.
Whenever, Wherever (Nice song by Shakira. One of my favorites. She is awesome in shaking her …..) I go there is a burst of laughter. Everybody who knows me gives me a smile and greets me. Actually that is how you greet someone. But this smile is a bit different. It is for the person who brings smile on their face. It’s actually not for me as a whole person. It’s just for a part of me.
Many time it has happened that I used the sentence, “No I am not kidding. I am serious.” and there has been laughter after mimicking my sentence. At times it was pretty embarrassing also. The easy to go nature gets me pass through the situation. Otherwise frequently repeating scenes like these would have put me in deep psychological trouble. I would have lost my mental balance. (You think I have lost it??)
Is it necessary to be serious in your life to get success?? Isn’t it possible with an always smiling face? I wonder how the famous humor writers, stand up comedians or simply comedians get serious in their life. He is serious about humor. Isn’t that ironical?
Till I get serious…
After watching The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger gained a lot of fans around the world. It was not just early death sympathy. His unforgettable performance was the main factor. Many of his fans try to imitate his best performance. Yes, the Joker. And his fans list is not limited to humans. Here are his two fans who watched The Dark Knight. Now they try to put a smile on our face. They sure succeed. :biggrin:
Smiles are always great. It just increases the face value of anyone. By anyone I mean anyone. Here it is a dog who smiles. I have never seen a dog smiling. All I know about dawgs is that they run after me, they bark, and they have sharp teeth. So this post is tribute to all those like me.
Cute smile. Isn’t it?? Sometimes we are afraid to smile. The reasons are the braces or the tooths like above. May also be because of yellow teeth. Don’t be afraid and give a smile. As if no one is looking at you. Set this smile in your memory and recall it in such situations.
One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport .
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car
jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi
driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the other
car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his
head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just
smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really
So I asked, “Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined
your car and sent us to the hospital!” This is when my taxi
driver taught me what I now call, “The Law of the Garbage
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They
run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of
anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up,
they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on
you. Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them
well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to
other people at work, at home or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage
trucks take over their day. Life’s too short to wake up in the
morning with regrets, so….. “Love the people who treat you
right.. Pray for the ones who don’t.”
Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how
you take it!
These days I’m getting good dose of such stories in my inbox. So I just thought that I’ll put them here and write my point of view. I completely agree with what the driver said and did. But it’s very difficult to apply in real life. It’s difficult but not impossible. A sincere try always works. I’m a cool headed person most of the time. So I already do this. But not all the time. And I’m trying..
