Do you have the Heart of a Mouse?

Do you have the Heart of a Mouse?; A mouse was in constant distress because of its fear of the cat. A magician took pity on it and turned it into a cat. But then it became afraid of the dog.

So the magician turned it into a dog. Then it began to fear the panther, so the magician turned it into a panther. Whereupon it was full of fear for the hunter.

At this point, the magician gave up. He turned it into a mouse again saying, “Nothing I do for you is going to be of any help because you have the heart of a mouse.”

INSIGHTS

Fear is one of the most powerful emotions that humans experience. It can control our thoughts, our actions, and even our decisions. Fear can be helpful in some situations, like when it motivates us to avoid dangerous situations. But in other situations, fear can be paralyzing and can prevent us from living our lives to the fullest.

Fear is often the root of many mental health disorders, like anxiety and depression. When we’re constantly living in fear, it takes a toll on our mental and physical health. Fear can cause us to miss out on important life experiences, and it can even lead to suicide.

If you’re struggling with fear, seek out professional help. There are many people who understand what you’re going through and who want to help. if you feel like you can’t overcome your fears on your own, don’t quit therapy.  And remember, it’s okay to be scared. What matters is how you deal with that fear. Fear would make a human have the heart of a mouse as in the story above. But you don’t need to have a heart of a mouse. The question again is: Do you have the Heart of a Mouse?

Every Drop Matters

 

Every Drop Matters
Recently, when I was going to bed after using my bathroom, I started hearing sound of drops of water from the tap in slow successions, but since it was dropping into an empty bucket, I decided to let it be, not realizing that every drop matters.
 

 

But, alas! When I woke up the next morning, around 5am, the bucket was almost full! I was surprised that just drops even in such slow successions could produce that much. I couldn’t help it, ‘Just drops?!’ I questioned rhetorically.

While he worked feverishly on everyone else’s shoes, his feet got blister and he started to limp. His customers started to worry about him, but he reassured them that everything is alright.

A world famous shoe manufacturer took a decision to expand his business, by setting up a new branch in a remote, little – known country. He called up one of his marketing managers and sent him to the country to explore the possibility of setting up a new factory there.

The young executive flew out the next day. But within 24 hours of reaching there he called his boss. “This place is not good for our business,” he said gloomily. “people do not wear shoes out here. We had better forget any notion setting up a factory here. It simply won’t work. I am catching the next flight.”

 

The boss was highly dissatisfied with the report. He had to set his heart on doing what he wanted. He called another young manager, from his marketing managers and sent him out with the same order. Within few hours of getting there, this young manager called his boss with great excitement. “This place is unbelievable,” he exclaimed. “our business is going to bloom here. These people don’t even know what shoes are like. When we introduce shoes here, we shall have a whole, new, untapped market. Please send in our planners and designers as soon as you can. We must set up a factory here, and win all the way.

Tough people dare when others doubt. Believe in yourself for the walls around you do not define the will within you. See everything that you face in life as a test; face it because your heart wants what’s beyond it. Embrace your results and never give less than what you expect, and always remember in your own ways – You are powerful, you can do it, and you are a champion.
