Shoe shine Boys

Sometimes ago, I was in Shanghai, China. On the street, quite a number of shoe shine boys, with them their shoe shinning tools, begging people to shine their shoes for 1 Renminpee.

Among them, there was this elderly China man who is around 65 years old, pulling the sleeve of a prospecting customer. I felt pity to this elderly man and I paid him 1 Renminpee for shining my shoes.

This man works because he wants to or he has to?

No amount of what I say can change

I wrote an article on "SUCCESS IS NOWHERE" on March 3, 2009. You may click on the following link and read it -

I can repeatedly tell a person that it should be read as "Success Is Now Here" and yet he wants to see it as "Success Is Nowhere", then there is no amount of what I say can change him.

Three Types of People

There are three types of people:

The first type - Wage earners, their income phase stop at age 55 or maybe 60. After retirement, they have to count their nest eggs.
The second type - Business owners, they enjoy a stream of income as long as they are in business. In their old age, they may not work as hard, they may earn less, however, they have recurring income.
The third type - This is the best type, they still earn an income after death. Their continuous income derive from copyright. A good example is Michael Jackson, he continues to earn an income for his estate after his death.

Abbott and a young monk

It was winter in North China, the weather was cold. There live in a old temple on the hill top an Abbot and a young monk. The Abbott said to the young monk, "Since the weather is so cold, let us go to bed early."

Both the Abbott and the young monk went to bed. They put on their blankets respectively and after a little while, the Abbott asked again, "Are you feeling better and more comfortable?" The young monk replied, "Of course, the blanket gives me the warmth."

Abbott said, "No, think again, was it you who give the blanket warmth or the blanket gives you the warmth?"

Yes....if you want people to trust you, you have to trust people. If you want people to love you, you have to love them....the more you give, the more you get.
