Flu Love Story

I will seek and find you.
I shall take you to bed and have my way with you.
I will make you ache, shake & sweat until you moan & groan.
I will make you beg for mercy, beg for me to stop.
I will exhaust you to the point that you will be relieved when I'm finished with you .
And, when I am finished, you will be weak for days.

All my love,

The Flu

Now, get your mind out of the gutter !!!!!
And go get your flu shot!

Beauty of Mathematics !!!!!!!

Beauty of Mathematics
1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321
1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111
9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888
Brilliant, isn't it?
And look at this symmetry:
1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321
Now, take a look at this...
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:
What Equals 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been in situations where someone wants you to GIVE OVER 100%.
How about ACHIEVING 101%?
What equals 100% in life?
Here's a little mathematical formula that might help answer these questions:
Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
8+1+18+4+23+ 15+18+11
= 98%
11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5
= 96%
1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5
= 100%
THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:
L-O-V-E - O-F - G-O-D
12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4
= 101%

Destiny in Life

Destiny in Life
Watch your thoughts;
they become words.
Watch your words;
they become actions.
Watch your actions;
they become habits.
Watch your habits;
they become character.
Watch your character;
it becomes your destiny!
Life is definitely not about work!
Work is only necessary to keep us living so as to enjoy the beauty and pleasures of life.
Life is a balance of Work and Play, Family and Personal time.
You have to decide how you want to balance your Life.
Define your priorities,
realize what you are able to compromise
but always let some of your decisions be based on your instincts.
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of Life,
the whole aim of human existence.
So, take it easy, do what you want to do and appreciate nature.
Life is fragile, Life is short.
Do not take Life for granted.
Live a balanced lifestyle and enjoy Life!
The Journey of Our Life
Long time ago,
there was an Emperor who told his horseman
that if he could ride on his horse and cover as much land area as he likes,
then the Emperor would give him the area of land he has covered.
Sure enough,
the horseman quickly jumped onto his horse
and rode as fast as possible to cover as much land area as he could.
He kept on riding and riding,
whipping the horse to go as fast as possible.
When he was hungry or tired,
he did not stop because he wanted to cover as much area as possible.
Came to a point when he had covered a substantial area
and he was exhausted and was dying.
Then he asked himself,
"Why did I push myself so hard to cover so much land area?
Now I am dying and I only need a very small area to bury myself."
The above story is similar with the journey of our Life.
We push very hard everyday to make more money,
to gain power and recognition.
We neglect our health, time with our family
and to appreciate the surrounding beauty and the hobbies we love.
One day when we look back,
we will realize that we don't really need that much,
but then we cannot turn back time for what we have missed.
Life is not about making money, acquiring power or recognition!

Do what you do best!

Do what you do best
Tessie Lim

As a performance coach, what is the most common question you get asked and what is your response to it?
I'm often asked "how do I know what I am meant to do with my life?" My response is to seat the client comfortably and ask them to close their eyes and relax.
Then I would ask them to direct their attention to the things that they enjoy doing, and when doing these, they feel so right they get a sense that time just floats away…
For some people, this could be working with animals. For others, it involves working with many other people, and for yet others, they are most happy doing things alone. Computer geeks fall into this category!

We do our best when we do what we do best.
So begin by realising what your gifts and talents are, what you have a natural flair for, and what you could enjoy doing all day so it doesn't seem like work at all.
Then ask "what does this mean to me" and "how is this important to me?"
When we become aware of this, we are beginning to find our purpose in life.
When we live our life purposefully, we find that we are always focused on what we can do well that makes us happy… and because doing it has so much meaning for us, we are always looking for ways to spend more time on it and be better at it.

Living our 'Best Life'
You often talk about "living our best life." What does this really mean and how would you advise people to go about achieving it?
"Best" means "optimum", "most" or "full." Living my "Best Life" means that I live my life to the full.
To live my "Best Life" means I use all my talents to produce the fullest experience I can of the moments and hours each day.

To do this, I need power, the power to make choices, the power to get involved, the power to have a say. I need to be in control, to have influence over what I experience each day. To have all this, I need to be "self-referent."
This means I live by my principles, my beliefs and my understandings, not by what others tell me to do. To have influence, control and choice, I need power… to agree or disagree, the ability to think and decide for myself, if what I am doing will help or hurt me.
To Live Our Best Life requires courage because it involves doing what's right for us. This means having to say no sometimes because those things don't fit into our set of priorities.

We can start by checking that our attitudes are positive and that we have a zest for life.
Is being alive and happy important to us?
If yes, then we are on the right track!

That positive attitude will generate feelings of gratitude because we are always thinking how wonderful this is and how interesting that is and how lucky we are to be at that place at that time!

Life is beautiful!
