I will like to clarify, I’m not a religious man, and I’m in not intention to promote any religion. I read this parable of the ten talents during my teens, and today I saw it on Jim Clary’s blog.
Parable of the ten talents
It reminds me of being careful and wise with my money and talents. And I am reminded of 10 lessons from this parable.
This a story from The Bible. It is in the book of Matthew 25:13-30
Mix feelings of sad, anger, disappointed, , upsets, hurt, devastated and pain was what I felt for the past 2 weeks. Painful but business has to go on. In the last 2 weeks, I had the thought of giving up everything, hand the business to someone else, forget about the world and go to a mountain for seclusion.
Forget about the partnership crap, brotherhood drama or business empire story. I wanted to avoid the world and become a production line worker and not think of all these craps.
Avengers must be the hottest movie in town in the year of 2012. The marketing of this movie started since 2010 with individual Avengers like Ironman, Captain America and Thor screening on cinema. A short clip was always shown at the end of each movie showing Nick Fury recruiting the heroes.
And so we have a few egoistic maniacs coming as a team to save the world. What lessons can we learn from them? What life mistakes can we avoid?
What a ride of my life! The past 11 months was the most interesting times of my life. I went from down to more down, up but not quite up, and finally pulled myself up above the sea level. But I couldn’t have done it without the help of many friends.
The last 11 months has been quite an experience for me. In retrospect now, I’ve learned and grown from those “nasty” experiences. I’ve become stronger, more confident, more powerful, more compassionate, more patience, more authentic and open.
I learned to laugh at myself, make fun of myself in front of people. The biggest take away over the last 11 months is to have more compassion towards myself and accepting my mistakes and failures as a part of my life. Life becomes beautiful when I view mistakes and failures in a different way.
In almost any movies, there will be a hero to save the world, exterminate the villain, or to fall in love with. In some movies, there are more than one heroes. One such movie is The Avenger, which is screening soon worldwide. And the other such movie with more than one hero is Lord of The Rings.
This is one of the movie on my MUST watch list. I watched it three times. In fact, I discovered something new about the characters each time I watched it. All the heroes in the movie are like us. Each hero exude different personalities, and each hero fit into his role perfectly like individuals in a well-oiled organization.
Happy and fulfilled? Are you feeling that being happy and fulfilled is a far away thing for you? Are you looking to be happy and fulfilled? Most of us are looking for a happy and fulfilling life. While many are searching for happiness and fulfillment, they didn’t feel that way. That’s why they are searching and searching.
I have 10 ways to get myself happy and fulfilled. You may have heard some or even most of them. The difference is I want to make it fun rather than serious. I wish that you can achieve a happy and fulfilling life in a fun manner. It’s easier to achieve something through fun. And to be happy, we got to have fun as well.
