Gedagte van die dag

Ek lees elke oggend "Gedagte vir die dag" in Die Burger. Sommige "gedagtes" is treffend - of liewer meer treffend as ander. Vanoggend s'n is een van dié wat na my mening meer treffend is. Ek haal aan vanuit Die Burger:

Wanneer jy in die oggend opstaan, dink net watter voorreg dit is om te leef - om asem te haal, om te dink, om te geniet en om lief te hê. (Marcus Aurelius)

...........................vir die gedagte Chris.  Ons is so behep met ons probleme van die dag dat ons dikwels vergeet hoe geseën ons werklik is.

Môre Maters:

Alhoewel daai Amerikaner beslis nie Afrikaans kon praat nie onthou ek een van sy gedagtes as volg:

“Onthou – Hoe hoër jy klim op die leer van die lewe – hoe meer sien mense van jou agterent”

Deurgaans in my Mil Loopbaan probeer toepas, maar onder BAIE mense gedien wat nog nooit van dit gehoor het nie.

.....................André, maar gelukkig na aftrede (as nuweling sal jy nog leer) daar is niemand meer onder jou agterent nie  -  net jou annerhelfte bo-op jou kop !

Die gedagte vir die dag, soos in vanoggend se "Die Burger":

Ek is lief vir die lig, want dit wys my die weg, maar ek verduur die donkerte omdat dit my die sterre wys. (Og Mandino)

Sommer net vir agtergrond-inligting - Og Mandino (1923 - 1996) was 'n Amerikaanse skrywer wat o.a. die topverkoper-boek The Greatest Salesman in the World geskryf het. Dié boek is in meer as 25 tale vertaal en meer as 50 miljoen kopieë is daarvan verkoop.

'n Ander "Gedagte" uit een van verlede week se koerante:

Een van die mees opregte vorme van respek is om inderdaad te luister wat 'n ander sê. (Bryant H. McGill) Ai, en is ek nie baie skuldig hieraan nie!!

Bekommernis ontneem nie môre van sy sorge nie, dit ondermyn net vandag se vreugde. (Leo Buscaglia 1924 - 1998) Hy was 'n Amerikaanse skrywer en motiveringspreker.

Weereens ontleen uit Die Burger van 9 April 2019 se "Gedagte vir die dag".

Harry, ek is ook dieselfde bootjie soos jy. Ons moet gaan trou wanneer ons afgetree is sodat die vrou die pensioen voordele kan kry wanneer ons sterwe laugh

"*Ducks Quack, Eagles Soar*

I was waiting in line for a ride at the airport in India. When a cab pulled up, the first thing I noticed was that the taxi was polished to a bright shine. Smartly dressed in a white shirt, black tie, and freshly pressed black slacks, the cab driver jumped out and rounded the car to open the back passenger door for me.

He handed me a laminated card and said: 'I'm Wasu, your driver. While I'm loading your bags in the trunk I'd like you to read my mission statement.'

Taken aback, I read the card. It said: Wasu's Mission Statement:
To get my customers to their destination in the quickest, safest and cheapest way possible in a friendly environment.

This blew me away. Especially when I noticed that the inside of the cab matched the outside. Spotlessly clean!

As he slid behind the wheel, Wasu said, 'Would you like a cup of coffee? I have a thermos of regular and one of decaf.'

I said jokingly, 'No, I'd prefer a soft drink.'

Wasu smiled and said, 'No problem. I have a cooler up front with regular and Diet Coke, lassi, water and orange juice.'

Almost stuttering, I said, 'I'll take a Lassi.'

Handing me my drink, Wasu said, 'If you'd like something to read, I have The NST , Star and Sun Today.'

As they were pulling away, Wasu handed me another laminated card, 'These are the stations I get and the music they play, if you'd like to listen to the radio.'

And as if that weren't enough, Wasu told me that he had the air conditioning on and asked if the temperature was comfortable for me.

Then he advised me of the best route to my destination for that time of day. He also let me know that he'd be happy to chat and tell me about some of the sights or, if I preferred, to leave me with my own thoughts.

'Tell me, Wasu,' I was amazed and asked him, 'have you always served customers like this?'

Wasu smiled into the rear view mirror. _"No, not always. In fact, it's only been in the last two years. My first five years driving, I  spent most of my time complaining like all the rest of the cabbies do. Then I heard about POWER OF CHOICE one day."_

*Power of choice is that you can be a duck or an eagle*.

'If you get up in the morning expecting to have a bad day, you'll rarely disappoint yourself. Stop complaining!' 

'Don't be a duck. Be an eagle. Ducks quack and complain. Eagles soar above the crowd.'

'That hit me. really hard' said Wasu. 

'It is about me. I was always quacking and complaining, so I decided to change my attitude and become an eagle. I looked around at the other cabs and their drivers. The cabs were dirty, the drivers were unfriendly, and the customers were unhappy. So I decided to make some changes, slowly ... a few at a time. When my customers responded well, I did more.'

'I take it that it has paid off for you,' I said.

'It sure has,' Wasu replied. 'My first year as an eagle, I doubled my income from the previous year. This year I'll probably quadruple it. My customers call me for appointments on my cell phone or leave a message on it.'

Wasu made a different choice. He decided to stop quacking like a duck and start soaring like an  eagle.

Start becoming an eagle today ... one small step every week..next week... And next...And....
