"A son and his father were walking on the mountains.
Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
Curious, he yells: "Who are you?"
He receives the answer: "Who are you?"
And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!"
The voice answers: "I admire you!"
Angered at the response, he screams: "Coward!"
He receives the answer: "Coward!"
He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?"
The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention."
Again the man screams: "You are a champion!"
The voice answers: "You are a champion!"
The boy is surprised, but does not understand.
Then the father explains: "People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.

It gives you back everything you say or do.
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart.
If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.
This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life;
Life will give you back everything you have given to it."

Build wisely

Wednesday, 20th February 2013


An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house-building business to live a more leisurely life with his wife and enjoy his extended family. He would miss the paycheck each week, but he wanted to retire. They could get by.

The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favour. The carpenter said yes, but over time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career.

When the carpenter finished his work, his employer came to inspect the house. Then he handed the front-door key to the carpenter and said, "This is your house ... my gift to you."

The carpenter was shocked!

What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently.

So it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. Then, with a shock, we realise we have to live the life we have built. If we could do it over, we would do it much differently.

But, you cannot go back. 

You are the carpenter, and every day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall.
Someone once said, "Life is a do-it-yourself project.  " Your attitude, and the choices you make today, help build the "life" you will live in tomorrow. Therefore, Build wisely!

At the shiva for her son, a friend sings the song: It's Possible.  The moving lyrics are below: 

It’s Possible

Sometimes we look upon our lives,
Through all our tears and sorrow,
And wonder how? What can be done
To make things good tomorrow?
Remember that it is a world,
Where good and bad are mixed,
So anything that broke today,
Tomorrow can be fixed.
It’s possible, It’s possible

All your dreams are possible,
Just keep your mind upon your goal,
And turn to G-d with all your soul.
It’s possible, It’s possible

Everything is possible,
It’s only after doubt sets in,
Dreams loose their luster and grow dim.
When shades of doubt come to you,
With inertia and delusion,
Turn and pledge to do G-d’s will
That helps relieve confusion.
You must have faith in what you do
You need no explanation.
Commit yourself and find success
Beyond all your expectations!
It’s possible, It’s possible

All your dreams are possible,
Just keep your eyes upon your goal,
And pray to G-d with all your soul.
It’s possible, It’s possible,

Everything is possible,
It’s only after doubts are stilled,
Dreams take new luster and are fulfilled
