#WhatsRightIsntAlwaysPopular...

A perfect #TooGoodNotToShare example of the dilemma we often face in any decision making.

A group of children were playing near two railway tracks, one still in use while the other not....
#Dilemma
Only one child played on the unused track, the rest on the operational track.

A train is coming, and you are just beside the track interchange. You can make the train change its course to the unused track and save most of the kids.

What will you decide??
#DecisionMaking

However, that would also mean the lone child playing by the unused track would be sacrificed.

Or would you rather let the train go its way?

Let's take a pause to think what kind of decision we could make................

have u thought enough !!!!
Most people might choose to divert the course of the train, and sacrifice only one child.

Saving most of the children at the expense of only one child will be the correct decision most people would make rationally, morally and emotionally.
#TheDilemmaContinues

But, have you ever thought that the child chose to play on the unused track had in fact made the right decision to play at a safe place?

Nevertheless, he had to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friends who chose to play where the danger was.
Similar dilemma is faced by us everyday.

In office, community, politics & especially in a democratic society, the #RIGHT is often sacrificed for the interest of the majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are & how far-sighted & knowledgeable the wise are.
The great critic Leo Velski Julian who told the story said he would not change the course of the train because he believed that the kids playing on the operational track were aware that the track was still in use and that they would run away when they hear the train's sirens.
Now, let us understand the repercussions of diverting the train...

✖️That lone child would definitely die because he never expects that a train could come over on the unused track!
✖️Further, that track was not in use probably because it wasn’t safe. If the train was diverted to such a track, we may put the lives of all passengers on board at stake
✖️AND in our attempt to save few kids thinking that the train may run over them,we might end up
sacrificing hundreds of people

While we all are aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made,we don’t realize that hasty decision may not always be the right one

#IBelieve..

This is #TooGoodNotToShare..

We spend the best years of our lives waiting for a #Miracle when the miracle is #Life itself

We wait for approval,we wait for promotion,we wait for the bonus,we wait for freedom,we wait for a revelation AND in all this,we forget to live
Today, I make this promise to myself. No more waiting. I will live each day like it was the last day of my life. And I will live each day like it is the first day of the rest of my life with no regrets of the day that was..
I will be #Courageous.
Not courageous like a #Soldier under fire, but courageous enough to not wait. Courageous enough to #Live every moment to the hilt.

#Courageous enough to know that the only losses I should fear are the loss of #Love and #Respect, for myself & for those around me.

#Rule72
What is Rule 72?
In personal finance, if you divide the number 72 by the rate of interest, you get to know the number of years it will take for you to double the money..
Eg: if the rate of interest is 9%, simply divide the number 72 by 9 and the answer is 8. Thus it will take 8 years to double your money if you invest at 9% p.a. rate of interest.
#INTEREST
We can use this rule in reverse to know the rate of interest needed to double your money to achieve your set goal.

An interesting story as shared by a friend @soodparivar. Found it #TooGoodNotToShare ...

The #CockroachTheory for #SelfDevelopment

At a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a lady.

She started screaming out of fear.
With a #panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started screaming and jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach

Her reaction was contagious as everyone else in her group also started to panic
The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but it landed on another lady in the group and it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama

The waiter rushed forward to their rescue

In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter

Received the below message on
#AlertnessToAll and felt it was #TooGoodNotToShare ..

A lady's handbag which contained her cell phone, credit card, purse etc was stolen.

Thirty minutes later she managed to call her husband from her friend's telephone, telling him what happened.
Her husband said, "I just received your text message asking me to remind u of your ATM pin and I have replied a little while ago".

When they rushed to the bank, the staff told them money had already been withdrawn.
The thief had used the stolen cell phone to text her husband and get hold of her PIN.

Within twenty minutes he (thief) had withdrawn her money from the bank account.

Please when sensitive information is being asked for through text message, confirm by calling back.

This is so so good ...
I had never known these profound distinctions between #intelligence and #Wisdom. Found it
#TooGoodNotToShare ..

1 Intelligence leads to arguments.
Wisdom leads to to settlements

2 Intelligence is power of will.
Wisdom is power OVER will
3 Intelligence is heat, it burns.
Wisdom is warmth, it comforts

4 Intelligence is pursuit of knowledge,it tires the seeker.
Wisdom is pursuit of truth, it inspires the seeker

5 Intelligence is holding on.
Wisdom is letting go

6 Intelligence leads you.
Wisdom guides you
7 An intelligent man thinks he knows everything.
A wise person knows that there is still something to learn

8 An intelligent person always tries to prove his point.
A wise person knows there really is no point
