My First Retreat

A 'retreat' is a gathering in a church for praise and worship to your God (e.g. Jesus, Allah, Krishna) and to understand your religion better.
I attended a retreat this weekend and I learnt many new things. Among them was the hymn 'Give me Oil in my Lamp'. The hymn was very catchy and we all clapped while singing. It was fun.
'Pride goes before a fall' - arrogrance and selfishness will take you nowhere. It took King Saul to his death. Long Live King David (no pun intended).
It was a long but educational retreat. Amen.

Soaring the Skies!

Here's a motivation story my dad told me.
One day mother eagle was taking care of her 8 eggs but then she had to fly off in search of some food. When she got back she noticed something was wrong, there were only 7 eggs in the nest. 1 egg had rolled off the tree into a chicken's coup.
The mother hen sat on her eggs and kept them warm. Soon the eggs hatched and among the chicks was one eaglet. The eaglet grew up among the chicks and became another chicken. He could not fly and he often looked at the sky and wished that he too could soar the skies.

The moral of the story is you are who you think you are!

What makes a Winner?

A winner is a person who is not negative. A winner is willing to take risks no matter how hard it is. I am not there yet but I am trying; I have loads of opportunities ahead of me.
Winners are respectful of others and give everything their best shot. It is not easy but the trick is never give up.
So winner attitude here I come!
