The Cab Driver - How to Have a Great Attitude :)

Wouldn't it be great if us human can retain our innocence & purity as how we were when we first entered into this world~ :) I guess this is what people meant by coloring our life as how we want it to be~ Mind you dear ones, when we 1st entered this new world, we were all created to be as clean & pure as a bright white cloth~ Its is all up to us to decide on how we want to color that white piece of cloth of ours~ ;)

I have a great story to share with all you sweethearts~ An example of how our attitude is actually what determines the outcome of any situation in life that we encounter~ :)

One Day I hired a cab & took off for the Railways Station. We were driving in the right lane then suddenly a Mercedes car jumped out of parking space right in front of us. My cab driver slammed on his brakes, skidded & missed the other car by just inches~ The driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And was totally cool as if nothing had happened.

So I asked,"Why did you keep quiet? This guy almost caused an accident and we could have been in the hospital." This is when my cab driver taught me a lesson which I will not forget through out my life. He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They move around full of junk, resentment, anger and disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them & move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, home, or on the streets. Just leave it aside, there itself.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so.. Love the people who treat us right. Pray for the ones who don't :)
