When I came inside the school I was wished happy morning by a lot of smiling children!
The face of every girl child there was glimmering with hope and aspirations of a bright future. The vision of our leader Dr .A.P.J .Abdul Kalam sir could only be realized if only we spend some time with our school children educating them! Inspiring and motivating them?! #Its not a easy task to do it by a single person..It’s a team effort and for that we need a lot of motivated volunteers.. Take the pride of educating the girl child ! Be a part of educating the youth of the nation… What ever be your contribution .. Please come forward and be an active part in educating the needy…It’s an evergreen experience that will inspire you and others to stay motivated through out your life!! #Its not about money … It’s about time!
So please take that priceless moment and try inspiring,educating,and motivating children! Be a part of the initiative! If I can…then why not you?
What I told was 3 stories to motivate the kids there..
The first story..
Here is a story which proves what mental blocks can do……
There was a student who reached school one day very late.By that time, the first period was over.On entering the classroom ,he found a mathematical problem written on the black board.He quickly copied the problem into his notebook.He thought that the problem was his homework.He went back to his home after the school got over,he sat up the night as he was finding it difficult to solve the problem as he was not that good at solving problems…. However he worked and worked until he hit upon the solution…He was very excited and he went to school the next day.The Maths teacher arrived in his class and enquired about the homework.. None of the students who attended the previous day’s class attended the homework.This boy was taken by surprise as there were many brilliant students in the classroom who could have easily solved the problem.He alone got up and showed the solution to the problem.The teacher verified it and patted him for doing it right…
Why then they (classmates) did not attend the problem?
The teacher revealed that while giving the homework,she told deliberately that it was a very difficult problem that no one could solve it… Every student present in the classroom believed that it was beyond there capacity to solve the problem and hence didn’t even attempt to solve the problem…As the boy was absent when it was given in the classroom,he did not have mental blocks and hence he attempted and solved it!
Thus the teacher demonstrated to the students how mental blocks prevent us from venturing into any thing new….So #Destroy your mental blocks; you can achieve anything…. Remember
“Some of the world’s greatest feats were achieved and accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible!!
The second story…
Once upon a time there was a little boy who was talented, creative, handsome, and extremely bright. A natural leader. The kind of person everyone would normally have wanted on their team or project. But he was also self-centered and had a very bad temper. When he got angry, he usually said, and often did, some very hurtful things. In fact, he seemed to have little regard for those around him. Even friends. So, naturally, he had few. “But,” he told himself, “that just shows how stupid most people are!”
As he grew, his parents became concerned about this personality flaw, and pondered long and hard about what they should do. Finally, the father had an idea. And he struck a bargain with his son. He gave him a bag of nails, and a BIG hammer. “Whenever you lose your temper,” he told the boy, “I want you to really let it out. Just take a nail and drive it into the oak boards of that old fence out back. Hit that nail as hard as you can!”
Of course, those weathered oak boards in that old fence were almost as tough as iron, and the hammer was mighty heavy, so it wasn’t nearly as easy as it first sounded. Nevertheless, by the end of the first day, the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence (That was one angry young man!). Gradually, over a period of weeks, the number dwindled down. Holding his temper proved to be easier than driving nails into the fence! Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all. He felt mighty proud as he told his parents about that accomplishment.
“As a sign of your success,” his father responded, “you get to PULL OUT one nail. In fact, you can do that each day that you don’t lose your temper even once.”
Well, many weeks passed. Finally one day the young boy was able to report proudly that all the nails were gone.
At that point, the father asked his son to walk out back with him and take one more good look at the fence. “You have done well, my son,” he said. “But I want you to notice the holes that are left. No matter what happens from now on, this fence will never be the same. Saying or doing hurtful things in anger produces the same kind of result. There will always be a scar. It won’t matter how many times you say you’re sorry, or how many years pass, the scar will still be
And a verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. People are much more valuable than an old fence.
They make us smile. They help us succeed. Some will even become friends who share our joys, and support us through bad times. And, if they trust us, they will also open their hearts to us. That means we need to treat everyone with love and respect. We need to prevent as many of those scars as we can.”
A most valuable lesson, don’t you think? And a reminder most of us need from time to time. Everyone gets angry occasionally. The real test is what we DO with it.
If we are wise, we will spend our time building bridges rather than barriers in our relationships.
The 3rd most important real story which is ever inspiring….
The Brooklyn suspension Bridge that connects New York and Long Island is a spectacular structure. Along with the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Bridge has proven itself as one of New York’s most recognizable and photogenic landmarks. we could regularly see this beautiful hanging structure across the water body in many famous Hollywood movies such as Spiderman, Godzilla, Fantastic four, The seige etc.
Not only it is famous for its proven strength and scenic beauty, the True Life Story behind Brooklyn is really inspirational.
Year 1869, was a vital year in the life of Engineer John Roebling, it was in this year he came out with his idea to build a spectacular bridge to connect Long Island with New York. Since there was no other bridge of its magnitude at that point of time the experts rejected his idea saying that it was an impossible feat. The whole world was against his idea and told him to drop his plan.
Roebling’s Intuition kept telling him that his vision was right about the bridge. The only support he had for his idea was his son Washington, who at that time was an upcoming engineer. They together prepared a detailed plan and recruited the necessary team. Though they were well prepared for bottle necks, a tragic accident occurred at the site killing Roebling. This incident happened few months after the bridge building work had started. Normally anyone would have given up. But Washington wanted his father’s vision come true.
Fate was so cruel that Washington suffered brain damage and was injured to an extent where he became immobile. He could neither walk nor talk or even move. As usual the experts who claimed the bridge cannot be built started raising questions about the continuation of the project. There was an uproar about scrapping the construction project terming that Washington was not in a position to extend his services. But these did not deter Washington. He was clear about his objective.
He depended entirely on his wife to communicate. He used his only moving finger to communicate to her. He developed a code to make her understand his communication. Initially everyone thought he was foolish. His instructions were interpreted by his wife and passed on to the engineers. She spent the next 11 years assisting Washington Roebling for bridge’s construction. Finally, the bridge was completed and inaugurated on 24th May 1883, the day on which Washington Roebling was on his death-bed. On the same day 150,000 people crossed the bridge.
Roebling had not just made a bridge that looked incredibly strong, it also turned out to be just as strong in reality. But even after the inauguration, many New Yorkers were not convinced the bridge was safe. So as to prove the doubters wrong, a caravan of circus animals – including a herd of 21 elephants – across the bridge in 1884.
Brooklyn Bridge stands as a spectacular land mark and is standing tall with an Inspirational True Life Story behind it for people who face obstacles in their life!
What fate denies … perseverance pay?!!
