Take a break from whatever you are doing now. Relax, get a cup of coffee and soak in these heart warming short stories. These short life tales will make your day. Read on:

1) She was very excited today, after all the school was re-opening after a long summer break.
Now, once again, she could start selling stationery at the traffic signal to feed her family.

2) She, a renowned artist and a strict mother, often scolded her 6-year-old son for he could never draw a line straight.
As he breathed slowly into the ventilator, she begged him to make one more crooked line on the ECG.

3) “Everyone goes with the flow… but the one who goes against it becomes someone remarkable.”
Before I could explain this to the traffic police, the man issued me a Fine.

4) Their love was different; She was happy every time he kicked her in the stomach.
Every time he kicked she loved him more. She waited for the time she would hold her baby for the first time.

Read her brother’s death note.

6) They took his father,
and only returned a flag.

8) “Born to rich parents, this boy is so lucky,” exclaimed the neighbours!
Somewhere in heaven, three unborn sisters cried.

9) “You ruined my career, I was supposed to be an executive director,” she thought to herself.
The little angel held her finger tightly and she forgot everything; A mother was born.

10) Once a 5-year-old boy was standing barefoot in the shallow water of the ocean.
He was repeating the same sentence to the waves – “Even if you touch my feet a thousand times, I won’t forgive you for taking my parents away.”

Slow down: This poem by a teenage cancer patient will open your eyes

by admin

We all are rushing through life, in search of an Oasis of succour, which often is a mere illusion. Where are we heading and why, is a dilemma for one and all. In such a time, we need to relax, take a deep breath and contemplate, look at life from a new perspective.

And this poem from a teenager with cancer will open your eyes.
SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
 Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask, “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,
with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say,’Hi’

You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last..

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift….
Thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

Like, share and comment and spread positivity.

We all SHOULD and MUST follow UBUNTU: Learn and change your LIFE

by admin

Life is amazing and beautiful and there are learning in every nook and corner on this world.

Similarly, I learnt something the other day about Ubuntu, a wonderful concept.

What is it?

Here’s learn and embrace humanity via a story.

An anthropologist studying the habits and customs of an African tribe found himself surrounded by children most days. So he decided to play a little game with them. He managed to get candy from the nearest town and put it all in a decorated basket at the foot of a tree.

Then he called the children and suggested they play the game. When the anthropologist said “now”, the children had to run to the tree and the first one to get there could have all the candy to him/herself.

So the children all lined up waiting for the signal. When the anthropologist said “now”, all of the children took each other by the hand ran together towards the tree. They all arrived at the same time divided up the candy, sat down and began to happily munch away.

The anthropologist went over to them and asked why they had all run together when any one of them could have had the candy all to themselves.

The children responded: “Ubuntu. How could any one of us be happy if all the others were sad?”

Ubuntu is a philosophy of African tribes that can be summed up as “I am what I am because of who we all are.”

Bishop Desmond Tutu gave this explanation in 2008 :

“One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality –

Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.”

This is the true spirit of human development and cause of human evolution. Ubuntu. Once again, we are proud to say Ubuntu, I am what I am because of who we all are.. This is not a story as such, but a feeling to be expressed.

Ubuntu…it is!!!

Inspiring Story: A Beautiful Message which will make your day

by admin

Arthur Ashe, The Legendary Wimbledon Player was dying of AIDS

which he got due to Infected Blood he received during a Heart Surgery in 1983!

He received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:

“Why did God have to select you for such a bad disease??”

To this Arthur Ashe replied:

50 Million children started playing Tennis,

5 Million learnt to play Tennis,

500 000 learnt Professional Tennis,

50 Thousand came to Circuit,

5 Thousand reached Grandslam,

50 reached Wimbledon,

4 reached the Semifinals,

2 reached the Finals and

when I was holding the cup in my hand,

I never asked God
“Why Me?”

So now that I’m in pain how can I ask God “Why Me?”

Happiness keeps you Sweet!!

Trials keep you Strong!!

Sorrows keep you Human!!

Failure keeps you Humble!!

Success keeps you Glowing!!

But only,
Faith keeps you Going.

Sometimes you are
unsatisfied with your life,

while many people in
this world are dreaming
of living your life..

A child on a farm sees
a plane fly overhead &
dreams of flying.

But,
A pilot on the plane sees
the farmhouse & dreams
of returning home.

That’s life!!
Enjoy yours…

If wealth is the secret to
happiness,

then the rich should be dancing on the streets.

But only poor kids
do that.

If power ensures security,
then VIPs should walk
unguarded.

But those who live simply, sleep soundly.

If beauty and fame bring
ideal relationships,

then celebrities should have the best marriages.

Live simply.
Walk humbly.
and love genuinely…!

Is Life only about Success, Wealth, Fame? Steve Jobs had it all, but his last words will make you THINK

by admin

Hello all wonderful readers of SuccessYeti.com.

I would like to begin by wishing everyone a very Happy Diwali. This festive season, may you look within and light up the darkness and spread love.

As I pass years on this beautiful planet and meet different people and situations, I often introspect on the meaning of life.

Everyone has his or her version and I respectfully take note of everyone’s thoughts. I also dig deep into the pages of biographies and autobiographies to seek knowledge from the men and women who have walked the extra mile.

I have realised that mostly all, especially in today’s consumerism injected world, are gripped by the constant chase for success, fame and wealth. Fuelled by ambition and the undesirable lust for material possession, humans are ready to go to any extent, even drop their basic values, to be on the top of the pseudo societal ladder of triumph.

In my personal life, I have met many people who have been blessed with material prosperity, but have also owned wrinkles of worries and restlessness in abundance, thanks to constant disregard for family, friends, people and of course, health.

I feel being ambitious is very good, but not at the cost of health and happiness, for self and others.

Being a twitchy owl on a cosy bed in a fancy hotel in Las Vegas is not worth it. End of the day, peace and happiness are the necessary life energies.

One needs to pause, introspect, contemplate, and meditate to evolve as a person along with professional leaps.

Growth should be simultaneous and all encompassing. The perfect balance is needed.

It’s better to understand that as humans, we need peace in mind and lead a healthy life. One needs to understand it before time runs out.

And my thoughts got a certain validation when I read about the great Steve Jobs’ apparent last words. The Apple founder was an epitome of success, but for him, life had a different meaning.  Here’s what he said: ( we do not confirm if the words were indeed said by Jobs, but yet we thought of sharing it with readers given its importance pertaining to life and its meaning)

Steve Jobs’ Last Words –

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.

In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:

Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days …

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me.

What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? – “Sick bed” …

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – “Life”.

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”.

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends…

Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

Wow, touchy indeed!!!

So what are your thoughts on life? For me, it’s being happy, humble and fit. Rest all will be taken care by the universe. Have faith and live life to the fullest.

Cheers to all.

-Siddhartha Laik

STOP LYING to Yourself

by admin

It’s time to face the reality. It’s time to stand in front of the mirror and look deep into your soul.

It’s time you accept the truth and stop lying to yourself.

It’s time to take absolute responsibility for whatever or whoever you are in your life at this every moment.

Everyone wants a better life. Everyone wants to be happy. Everyone wants to have a nice car, a cosy house, memorable holidays, a good family, financial security, all in all we all desire to be successful in our lives.

Desires we all have, but what are we going to do to see them become reality. How do you become a part of that elite 5 percent of the population who we call successful persons, role models, idols?

We all heart in heart admire and dream to become a Steve Jobs, or a Sachin Tendulkar, or a Bill Gates, or a APJ Abdul Kalam or a Tom Cruise, but what does it take to become the best in what you do?

There are many habits which the successful people have. But to begin with I must say that the first step is to stop lying to yourself. To stop telling yourself you are happy with whatever you got, that you cannot do better, that you cannot become a successful rich happy human being.

We lie because we are scared to take the risk, to take the leap of faith, to go that extra mile to unleash the best within. We are scared of change, thus we become content in life and stop pushing ourselves.

Deep within we know that we can do better, the journey ahead is still a long one, yet we lie, for we fear.

Today, along with me, take the pledge that you will face the reality, face weakness. If you cannot speak well then you will take lessons to become a better speaker, if you are fat, you will hit the gym, if you want a fat paycheck you will work harder, if you want your family to be happy, you will spend more time with them.

Pledge to be the new you, pledge to be not that person who has no purpose in life, who lives and dies of no reason.

Pledge to be what you deserve to be, what you are born to be…and that is happy and successful.

Remember, when you become comfortable with who you are and realise the potential in you, life becomes peaceful and you earn people’s respect. If you are not true to yourself, you shall always present a deceptive picture to the universe. Being conscious of one’s abilities and weaknesses and accepting them in entirety is what we all should aim at, not hide or shy away from one’s own identity.

You are who you are and you are special. Keep saying that to yourself and slowly and steadily, doors of opportunities will open one by one.

Cheers to life!!!

-Siddhartha Laik
