    Read Read : ChOiCes....

    READ THIS ...........

    John is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is
    always in a good mood and always has something
    positive to say. When someone would ask him how he
    was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I
    would be twins!"

    He was a natural motivator.

    If an employee was having a bad day, John was there
    telling the employee how t! o look on the positive
    side of the situation.

    Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day
    I went up and asked him, "I don't get it!

    You can't be a positive person all of the time. How
    do you do it?"

    He replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to
    myself, you have two choices today. You can choose
    to be in a good mood or ... you can choose to be in
    a bad mood.

    I choose to be in a good mood."

    Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be
    a victim or...I can choose to learn from it. I
    choose to learn from it.

    Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can
    choose to accept their complaining or... I can point
    out the positive side of life. I choose the positive
    side of life.

    "Yeah, right, it's not that easy," I protested.

    "Yes, it is," he said. "Life is all about choices.
    When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a
    choice. You choose how you react to situations. You
    choose how people affect your mood.

    You choose to be i n a good mood or bad mood. The
    bottom line: It's your choice how you live your

    I reflected on what he said. Soon hereafter, I left
    the Tower Industry to start my own business. We lost
    touch, but I often thought about him when I made a
    choice about life instead of reacting to it.

    Several years later, I heard that he was involved in
    a serious accident, falling some 60 feet from a
    communications tower.

    After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive
    care, he was released from the hospital with rods
    placed in his back.

    I saw him about six months after the accident.

    When I asked him how he was, he replied, "If I were
    any better, I'd be twins...Wanna see my scars?"

    I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask him what
    had gone through his mind as the accident took

    "The first thing that went through my mind was the
    well-being of my soon-to-be born daughter," he
    replied. "Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered
    that I had two choices: I could choose to live
    or...I could choose to die. I chose to live."
    "Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I

    He continued, "..the paramedics were great.

    They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But
    when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the
    expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses,
    I got really scared. In their eyes, I read 'he's a
    dead man'. I knew I needed to take action."

    "What did you do?" I asked.
    "Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting
    questions at me," said John. "She asked if I was
    allergic to anything 'Yes, I replied.' The doctors
    and nurses stopped working as they waited for my
    reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, 'Gravity'."

    Over their laughter, I told them, "I am choosing to
    live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead."

    He lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but
    also because of his amazing attitude... I learned
    from him that every day we have the choice to live

    Attitude, after all, is everything.

    Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow
    will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble
    of its own.

    After all today is the tomorrow you worried about

    note: jehn this is for you ...

    singit lang algie:

    that is my truly my perspective in life after my drastical love life... i choose to be in positive mood or i may say mode.. mapaMobilarian man or the real me... sa totoo im very pessimistic dati... thinking the future would down me on every task I take... pero when I met this girl... she changed me... he brought out the best in me... at yun ang pagiging optimistic... even if she dump me (with lots of immature action from her) I stood my ground never weep never nagwala... i stay positive and moved on... sa bagay she teaches me one good and excellent lesson: "kahit anong mangyari nandyan si God, kaya be happy di ka nya pababayaan..." yan ang exact words na sinabi nya dati...

    for jhen...

    always be happy a smile through all the hurt may not quench all your sorrows pero atleast it lessens your burden... i hope mabasa mo tong message na ito... continue to be optimistic as the article/ story of algie pertains... thats the best way to deal all your problems plus there is a God guiding and loving you unconditionally...

    atsaka wag mo rin kami kalimutan mga kaibigan mo... ian family and Mobilarian family...

    Life Is A Choice You'll Make, its either Be Happy, Or not .. You Are REsponsible in Ever Actions You Take ..That is Why, Be Careful in Choosing, ... I really like that story (above ) ...it Inspires Me a Lot..Esp at Times when I Went through Some Difficulties, and Instead of Blaming and Self Pity, I Choose NOT TO ..
