Die empty

One of the most beautiful article based on the book called “Die Empty” by Todd Henry.

The author was inspired and got this idea of writing this book while attending a business meeting.

When the director asked the audience: “Where is the richest land in the world?”

One of the audience answered: “Oil-rich Gulf states.”

Another added: “Diamond mines in Africa.”

Then the director said: “No it is the cemetery. Yes, it is the richest land in the world, because millions of people have departed from it, “they have died” and they carry many valuable ideas that did not come out of the light and benefited others. It is all in the cemetery where they were buried.”

Inspired by this answer, Todd Henry wrote his wonderful book “Die empty.” Where he did his best to motivate people to pour out their ideas and potential energies in their communities and turn them into something useful before it is too late.

The most beautiful of what he said in his book is that: “Do not go to your grave and you carry inside you the best that you have, always choose to die empty.”

Die empty is a new expression and unique on its on way, at first glance you will think it is normal.

But I was surprised to know the true meaning of this new expression.

It is to die empty of all the goodness that is within you. Deliver it before you leave this world.

If you have an idea perform it.

If you have a knowledge give it out.

If you have a goal achieve it.

Love, share and distribute, do not keep it inside.

Do not keep the goodness inside of you, and die full of ideas and be a delicious meal for the earthworms in the grave.

Most of us live with the stubborn idea that we will always have tomorrow. But sooner or later all of our tomorrows will run out.

Now I understand the meaning of the words of all the Holy Books “If the Final Hour comes upon one of you while he has in his hand a sapling then let him plant it.”

How can we plant a plant when we have reached out last day?

Yes, die empty. To live every day like it is the last day. To give the maximum energy to all that we have, and when we work on something we do it the best way. When we create something it should be spectacular.

We should be inspiring, happy, optimistic, and always seek to be empty until our souls rise up to the sky.

Are you empty?

I think we all weigh thousands of tons of goodness, creativity, love and hope that we can give.

We have not given all of it, except a little.

How I wish that we start the race to give and remove every atom of goodness inside us. We should learn how to find and sustain our passion and generosity, even in tough times.

Have a pleasant day and a GREAT week ahead…

Take care…..

Start the race..

Mantra For Life : The Fish Story

Life’s Mantra : The FISH Story

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish, But the water close to Japan has not held many fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever.

The further the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring the fish. If the return trip took more time, the fish were not fresh. To solve this problem, fish companies installed freezers on their boats.

They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish and they did not like the taste of frozen fish. The frozen fish fetched a lower price. So, fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin. After a little thrashing around, they were tired, dull, and lost their fresh-fish taste. The fishing industry faced an impending crisis! But today, they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan.

How did they manage…?

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks but with a small shark.The fish are challenged and hence are constantly on the move.

The challenge they face keeps them alive and fresh!

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired and dull….?

Basically in our lives, sharks are new challenges to keep us active. If you are steadily conquering challenges, you are happy.

Your challenges keep you energized. Don’t create Success and revel in it in a state of inertia. You have the resources, skills and abilities to make a difference.

Put a shark in your tank this year and see how far you can really go. Challenge your Self!.

Wish u a magnificent week ahead !!
