You reap!! What you Plant!!

A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.
Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different.
He called all the young executives in his company together.
He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you.. "The young executives were Shocked.
Boss continued. "I am going to give each one of you a SEED today - one very special SEED. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you.
I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one
I choose will be the next CEO."
One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed.. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed. Everyday, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.
Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew.
Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing.
By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn't have a plant and he felt like a FAILURE.
Six months went by -- still nothing in Jim's pot. He just knew he had killed his seed.  Jim didn't say anything to his colleagues, however, he just kept watering and fertilizing the soil.
A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants to the CEO for inspection.
Jim told his wife that he wasn't going to take an empty pot.
But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right.
He took his empty pot to the board room. When Jim arrived, he was amazed at
the variety of plants grown by the other executives. They were beautiful -- in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!
When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives.
Jim just tried to hide in the back. 
"My, what great plants, trees and flowers you have grown," said the CEO. 
"Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!"
CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered  Jim to be in front..Jim was terrified.
He thought, "The CEO knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!"
The CEO asked him what had happened to his seed - Jim told him the story.
The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, 
"Behold your next Chief Executive Officer!
His name is Jim!" Jim couldn't believe it. Jim couldn't even grow his seed.

"How could he be the new CEO?" others asked.
CEO said, "One year ago today, I gave everyone-a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead - it was not possible for them to grow.
Except Jim, All of you,when found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed. You all bought up beautiful plant.

Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the New Chief Executive Officer!"

If you plant honesty, you will reap trust
If you plant goodness, you will reap friends
If you plant humanity, you will reap greatness
If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment
If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective
If you plant hard work, you will reap success 
If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation

So, be careful what you plant now; it will determine what you will reap later.

LEAVE NO STONE UNTURNED in Road of life's journey!

One of the most undesired thing in life is Addiction. All of us are addicted to one or other thing.Sometimes we even get addicted to convenience. We accept whatever is easily achievable in life.We even stop searching for anything better.. Leave all to the destiny with a hope.
As soon as we do so...Our wisdom & eagerness to explore, goes on vacations.

Our conscience never misleads us; but most of us ignore it because we don’t want to leave our “room of comfort” to explore into wilderness...
Life really is like a vicious circle every time we see an end; it’s not the end but Horizon where arises a Sun of new Hope & desire' to explore the world afresh…
Life is continuous journey.. No one actually knows WHY he or she is in this world?

We should keep moving on the way which we find perfect.. Sooner or later people would come & join us.Addiction should be to EXPLORE- Why are we sent in this world by Almighty & what unturned pages of life have in its store for us...
“To find what we seek in the road of life…
