[Quote No.53241] Need Area: Fun > Anticipation
"[Poem:- about good growing out of bad, just like spring is the 'silver lining' of rain-clouds; so be hopeful - things are getting better.]

'Easter Thoughts'

Little growing things, pushing through the earth,
Petals for soft wings, bells to echo mirth.
Little bud and leaf, spite of winter's pain,
Spite of nature's grief, they are here again.

Little growing things, roots are in my heart.
Hark! the robin sings. Sorrow must depart.
Doubts and chilly fears! Winter now is o'er,
Wipe away your tears. Courage ! rise once more.

Courage has not fled, Simply slept awhile.
Hope, that you deemed dead, Revived beneath a smile.
Good cannot be slain, beauty never dies,
Spring has come again, soul of man, arise.

Arise and go forth now. Easter calls to you.
Blossoms on the bough, spirit burgeons, too.
The Lenten lilies sing 'From dead self, arise,'
While every growing thing says, 'Beauty never dies.'

" - Wilhelmina Stitch
(1888-1936) Wilhelmina Stich is the pseudonym of Ruth Jacobs Cohen Collie. She was a writer, lecturer and poet - called 'The Poem A Day Lady'. Born at Cambridgeshire, England in 1888, daughter of I. W. Jacobs, she married E. Arakie Cohen while he was visiting England and returned with him to Winnipeg, the capital and largest city of the province of Manitoba, Canada. They had one son, Ralph. After her husband’s death in 1919, she was forced to seek employment to support herself and her son. Her friends encouraged her to submit her writing for publication, which led to a successful career as a writer which continued to the time of her death. Writing under the pen names 'Sheila Rand' or 'Wilhelmina Stitch', she had poetry and stories published in the Winnipeg Tribune and the Winnipeg Telegram. In time, she became, in the words an obituary, 'one of the best-known women writers in the British Empire'. She later remarried to Scottish physician Frank K. Collie and moved with him to London, England where she died on 6 March 1936. [refer http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/people/collie_rjc.shtml and http://content.lib.sfu.ca/cdm/ref/collection/ceww/id/254 ]

[Quote No.53244] Need Area: Fun > Anticipation
"[Poem:- about persisting past mistakes and focusing on using all that you now know to make the future even brighter and better]

'Look Forward'

What a mess I made of things!
That was yesterday.
Yesterday has taken wings -
Hide mistakes away.

Things I did can't be undone.
Silly then to sorrow.
Better is the task begun
on a bright new morrow.

If I hadn't acted thus!
Silence, puling heart.
Useless now to fume and fuss,
make a brand new start.

All the energy that goes
into senseless fretting
Would rebuild, if you so chose,
your plan in some new setting.

What a blow! Fate is unkind.
Grit your teeth, don't murmur.
Smile as if you didn't mind,
stand a little firmer.

Here is solace for your grief,
nothing's done beyond recall.
Smudged a page? Well, turn a leaf.
Begin again. That's all.

Failed to-day? To-day is past.
To-morrow's peeping round the door.
Never doubt you'll win at last.
That is what to-morrow's for.

"[Poem:- about persisting and being ever hopeful and fearless]

'Diminishing Evils'

How high those hills, how far away.
Menacing hills at break of day.
Friend, keep going;
there's no knowing
when you will come to the end of the way.

Be not alarmed, fear not at all;
at the foot of the slope the hill looks small.
Journey along,
hearty and strong,
the summit is reached e'er the shadows fall.

How great those ills, grim foes they seem.
Swift and swollen life's angry stream.
Friend, keep going,
there's no knowing
when troubles will vanish as if in a dream.

Be not alarmed, have no fear;
the further away the worse they appear.
Journey along,
hearty and strong;
troubles are bubbles when Courage is near.

[Quote No.53249] Need Area: Fun > Anticipation
"[Poem: about changing what you are looking for and therefore what you are sensitive to and so naturally notice within your environment and in what you experience each day. Then you can note each beautiful thing at the time and perhaps even include it each night in a diary after noted other things that day such as perhaps three things you are grateful for and three things you are satisfied with and three things you are looking forward to.]

'Beauty Each Day'

I shall find beauty in this day,
Perhaps I'll see (Oh, rare delight!)
blue columbines, like butterflies in flight,
or daisies starring all the meadow white;
I cannot say.

I shall find beauty. This alone I know.
It may be framed within the dawn-lit skies,
or lurking in true friendship's tender eyes,
or set within some precious words and wise,
or in the sunset's glow.

I shall find beauty in such little things.
Perhaps I'll see, on some drab, dusty street,
ill-shod, but carefree, twinkling, rhythmic feet
responding to a barrel-organ's beat,
while laughter gaily rings.

I shall find beauty ere the set of sun.
It may not flow from flowers that brightly gleam,
nor from a rose-winged, fairy-nurtured dream,
nor from the moonbeams on a silver stream -
merely from Duty done.

[Quote No.53253] Need Area: Fun > Anticipation
"[Poem: about fear and worry]

'Day Mares'

Far worse than nightmares are the fears
that crowd upon us in the day.
A nightmare swiftly disappears
when sleep has softly slipped away;
when we awake we joke a bit -
that is, if we remember it!
But 'Daymares'
press upon the soul
and poison every breath of air;
of strength and courage they take toll
and in their train come cark and care.
They fetter and they paralyse —
these 'Daymares' with their fear-veiled eyes.
They are the troubles yet to come;
the worries still quite out of sight;
the sense of failure, clammy, dumb,
that turns the sunniest day to night.
These 'Daymares' plant one's fruitful years
with stark despair and barren fears.
Oh, give us courage for the fray
when 'Daymares' rise
on every side.
There is no foe so hard to slay
as Fear by worry magnified;
but if this victory be won,
then can we say,
'Brave soul! Well done!'

"[Poem: about if something you were hoping and working towards doesn't happen, and persisting with what learnt from that won't help then re-imagine and set new goals, new dreams and new hopes, for having something to work towards and hope for is one of the ways to be productive and happy in the present as well as the future]

'Renew Thy Hope'

One dream has come to nought?
Ah! do not sorrow.
Let other dreams be wrought
to grace the morrow.

Because one dream is slain,
talk not of never dreaming;
one night of murk and rain -
behold the sun a-gleaming!

Because one hope lies dead,
cling not to grief;
but have you faith instead.
Grief's life is brief.

One dream with broken wings,
one hope with head low blowed -
the brave heart sings
despite the cloud.

One castle wrecked in Spain
razed to the ground.
Oh, build it up again -
means will be found.

And sing while you rebuild;
sing out, and ne'er despair.
When hearts with hope are filled -
dreams flourish everywhere.

[Quote No.53264] Need Area: Fun > Anticipation
"[Poem:- about turning negatives into positives by learning what can from mistakes and reinvesting that learning persistently - therefore becoming wiser and more skilled and even grateful for the mistakes as you anticipate your on-going personal growth and even greater future successes and the satisfactions that those will bring!]

'The Mistake'

Why gaze so long at that mistake?
Last night it kept you wide awake,
and still you fret for its dull sake.

Don't mope about it, foolish one.
Still may you walk beneath the sun,
the race of life may yet be won.

A mere mistake and that is all.
A stumble and a moment's fall.
Don't let this little ailment gall.

Far better cry, 'Mistake! come here.'
Into its face then bravely peer,
but do not waste one sigh or tear.

A lesson, nothing more or less,
to help you win your happiness.
Then why such sharp and deep distress?

'Tis past, 'tis over, deem it dead;
accept the lesson, look ahead.
No wan regrets, fresh hope instead.

A mere mistake, be not downcast,
Wisdom you've gained; then hold it fast.
Look straight ahead, forget the past.

[Quote No.53274] Need Area: Fun > Anticipation
"[Poem: about which Time perspective is best - WAS: looking back with satisfaction - IS: experiencing the present moment - YET-TO-BE: anticipating the future. There is another which covers them all and adds another level of pleasure to each namely gratitude: (WAS) it could have been worse, (IS) it could be worse, (YET-TO-BE) it could end up being worse!!]

'WAS, IS, and YET-TO-BE'

WAS, IS, and YET-TO-BE
Were chatting over a cup of tea.

In tarnished finery smelling of must,
Was talked of people long turned to dust;

Of titles and honours and high estate,
All forgotten or out of date;

Of wonderful feasts in the long ago,
Of pride that perished with nothing to show.

'I loathe the present,' said WAS, with a groan;
'I live in pleasures that I have known.'

The YET-TO-BE, in a gown of gauze,
Looked over the head of musty WAS,

And gazed far off into misty space
With a wrapt expression upon her face.

'Such wonderful pleasures are coming to me,
Such glory, such honour,' said YET-TO-BE.

'No one dreamed, in the vast Has-Been,
Of such successes as I shall win.'

'The past, the present -- why, what are they?
I live for the joy of a future day.'

Then practical IS, in a fresh print dress,
Spoke up with a laugh, 'I must confess'

'I find to-day so pleasant,' she said,
'I never look back, and seldom ahead.'

'Whatever has been, is a finished sum;
Whatever will be -- why, let it come.'

'To-day is mine. And so, you see,
I have the past and the yet-to-be;'

'For to-day is the future of yesterday,
And the past of to-morrow. I live while I may,'

'And I think the secret of pleasure is this,
And this alone, said practical IS

[Quote No.53310] Need Area: Fun > Anticipation
"[The following insight about the values of negatives in our lives has huge ramifications in all need-areas of life, but especially - learning, persisting, evolving, gratitude, satisfaction, anticipation(!):] A problem, believe it or not, is always great news at least in that it motivates you to face and solve that problem – in the same way that as expressed in the saying, ‘Need is the mother of invention (as in creativity in scientific and cultural evolution)’. In facing that problem you develop empathy and compassion for other sufferers of that problem and sufferers of problems in general. That improves your human understanding and that in turn improves your imaginative empathy with others and from that you improve your ability to apply love’s ‘Golden Rule’ of treating others in the way you imagine you would want to be treated in that same situation. Also in facing and trying to solve that problem you will need to examine it carefully and try many possible solutions. Whether they work or not you will learn and grow in experience and wisdom. That then becomes another huge benefit of the problem." - Ben O'Grady

"[Poem: about the benefits of controlling your fears by controlling what you can practically and then controlling your imagination]

'Courage'

Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.
The soul that knows it not, knows no release
From little things;
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear,
Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear
The sound of wings.

" - Amelia Earhart
(1897 – 1937) Amelia Mary Earhart - an American aviation pioneer and author. Earhart was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She received the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross for this record. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots. Earhart joined the faculty of the Purdue University aviation department in 1935 as a visiting faculty member to counsel women on careers and help inspire others with her love for aviation. She was also a member of the National Woman's Party, and an early supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment. During an attempt to make a flight circumnavigating the globe in a Purdue-funded Lockheed Model 10 Electra, Earhart disappeared on July 2, 1937 over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Fascination with her life, career and disappearance continues to this day.

"[Poem: about putting joy into each and every day so they are a pleasure to anticipate, experience and recall.]

'Fabric'

I try to live each day
In such a way
That when tomorrow makes today a yesterday
I will have woven into the fabric of my life
Some gay design,
Some patch of color,
Bright, to please the eye.
So that, in the graying years to come,
When all the quick responsive senses dull,
I may look back across the patterns of my past
And, in my memory,
Live the joys and pains
Of all my yesterdays.

"[Poem: about being patient - which is the 'sister' of persistence and anticipation. If you have done or are doing what is reasonable to do to achieve what you desire so the wheels are in motion then best thing to do is not to stress over the outcome. In fact if you can think or do other things the time will pass faster and you'll be happier. Of course this is not an excuse to be lazy and do less than rational, which is why I have removed the second verse.]

'Waiting'

Serene, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind, or tide, or sea;
I rave no more ’gainst time or fate,
For, lo! my own shall come to me.

...

Asleep, awake, by night or day,
The friends I seek are seeking me;
No wind can drive my bark astray,
Nor change the tide of destiny.

What matter if I stand alone?
I wait with joy the coming years;
My heart shall reap where it has sown,
And garner up its fruit of tears.

The waters know their own and draw
The brook that springs in yonder height;
So flows the good with equal law
Unto the soul of pure delight.

The stars come nightly to the sky;
The tidal wave unto the sea;
Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high,
Can keep my own away from me.

"[Poem:- about fear and worry and not allowing them to enter your mind when trying to sleep]

'Don't Take Your Troubles To Bed'

You may labor your fill, friend of mine, if you will;
You may worry a bit, if you must;
You may treat your affairs as a series of cares,
You may live on a scrap and a crust;
But when the day's done, put it out of your head;
Don't take your troubles to bed.

You may batter your way through the thick of the fray,
You may sweat, you may swear, you may grunt;
You may be a jack-fool if you must, but this rule
Should ever be kept at the front: --
Don't fight with your pillow, but lay down your head
And kick every worriment out of the bed.

That friend or that foe (which he is, I don't know),
Whose name we have spoken as Death,
Hovers close to your side, while you run or you ride,
And he envies the warmth of your breath;
But he turns him away, with a shake of his head,
When he finds that you don't take your troubles to bed.

"[Poem:- about persistence and hope]

'Say Not the Struggle Naught Availeth'

Say not the struggle naught availeth,
The labor and the wounds are vain,
The enemy faints not, nor faileth,
And as things have been they remain.

If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars;
It may be, in yon smoke concealed,
Your comrades chase e'en now the fliers,
And, but for you, possess the field.

For while the tired waves, vainly breaking,
Seem here, no painful inch to gain,
Far back, through creeks and inlets making,
Comes silent, flooding in, the main.

And not by eastern windows only,
When daylight comes, comes in the light,
In front, the sun climbs slow, how slowly,
But westward, look, the land is bright.

"[Poem:- about the fear of death, worry and pessimism. It also demonstrates the captain misusing the ideas of focus, persistence and comparison to create negatives and so make himself and others unhappy rather than the way that the first mate uses them to create positives and make himself and others happy.]

'The Worried Skipper'

’I hates to think of dyin',’ says the skipper to the mate;
‘Starvation, shipwrecks, heart disease, I loathe to contemplate.
I hates to think of vanities And all the crimes they lead to.’
‘Then,’ says the mate,
With looks sedate,
‘Ye doesn't really need to.’

‘It fills me breast with sorrer,’ says the skipper with a sigh,
‘To conjer up the happy days what careless has slipped by.
I hates to contemplate the day I ups and left me Mary.’
‘Then,’ says the mate,
‘Why contemplate,
If it ain't necessary?’

‘Suppose that this here vessel,’ says the skipper with a groan,
‘Should lose 'er bearin's, run away, and hump upon a stone.
Suppose she'd shiver and go down, when save ourselves we couldn't.’
The mate replies,
‘Oh, blow me eyes!
Suppose ag'in, she shouldn't?’

‘The chances is agin' us,’ says the skipper in dismay;
‘If fate don't kill us out and out, it gits us all some day.
So many perish of old age, the death rate must be fearful.’
‘Well,’ says the mate
‘At any rate,
we might as well die cheerful.’

‘I read in them statistic books,’ the nervous skipper cries,
‘That every minute by the clock some feller up and dies;
I wonder what disease they gits that kills in such a hurry.’
The mate he winks
and says ‘I thinks
they mostly dies of worry.’

‘Of certain things,’ the skipper sighs, ‘me conscience won't be rid,
And all the wicked things I done I sure should not have did.
The wrinkles on me inmost soul compel me oft to shiver.’
‘Yer soul's first rate,’
Observes the mate,
‘The trouble's with yer liver.’

(1875 – 1959) American writer.

[Quote No.53479] Need Area: Fun > Anticipation
"[Poem: about how each of us has many desires that motivate us and that we happily anticipate achieving in the future. If we are lucky we do not exhaust them all, but have some that even outlast us. Or else if we achieve everything we want, after feeling content for a short time, we will then feel that we have no reason to continue living and struggling and become apathetic, unmotivated and without hope.]

'Carcassonne' [English translation from the original French]

'I'm growing old, I've sixty years;
I've labored all my life in vain:
In all that time of hopes and fears
I've failed my dearest wish to gain.
I see full well that here below
Bliss unalloyed there is for none.
My prayer will ne'er fulfilment know
I never have seen Carcassonne,

I never have seen Carcassonne!
You see the city from the hill,
It lies beyond the mountains blue,
And yet to reach it one must still
Five long and weary leagues pursue,
And to return as many more!
Ah! had the vintage plenteous grown!
The grape withheld its yellow store!
I shall not look on Carcassonne,
I shall not look on Carcassonne!

'They tell me every day is there
Not more or less than Sunday gay:
In shining robes and garments fair
The people walk upon their way.
One gazes there on castle walls
As grand as those of Babylon,
A bishop and two generals!
I do not know fair Carcassonne,
I do not know fair Carcassonne!

'The vicar's right; he says that we
Are ever wayward, weak and blind,
He tells us in his homily
Ambition ruins all mankind;
Yet could I there two days have spent
While still the autumn sweetly shone,
Ah me! I might have died content
When I had looked on Carcassonne,
When I had looked on Carcassonne!

'Thy pardon, Father, I beseech,
In this my prayer if I append:
One something sees beyond his reach
From childhood to his journey's end.
My wife, our little boy Aignon,
Have traveled even to Narbonne;
My grandchild has seen Perpignon,
And I have not seen Carcassonne,
And I have not seen Carcassonne!'

So crooned one day, close by Limoux,
A peasant double-bent with age;
'Rise up, my friend,' said I; 'with you
I'll go upon this pilgrimage.'
We left next morning his abode,
But (Heaven forgive him) halfway on,
The old man died upon the road;
He never gazed on Carcassonne,
Each mortal has his Carcassonne!

" - Gustave Nadaud
(1820 – 1893) French songwriter and chansonnier (solitary cabaret singer). Carcassonne is a French city in the south of the country. It has a famous medieval fortress and is a popular tourist destination. [http://www.poetryatlas.com/poetry/poem/1904/carcassonne.html ]

[Quote No.53493] Need Area: Fun > Anticipation
"[Poem:- about remembering the satisfaction of past beauty and joy to encourage the hope of future beauty and joy]

'Beauty As A Shield'

I will hold beauty as a shield against despair.
When my heart faints I will remember sights like these:
Bronze cypresses that framed a sapphire sea,
A desert mesa wrapped in sunset flame,
An airplane that raced the Overland
Above a trail still marked with whitening bones;
A path through a dim forest, hushed and sweet,
Lit by one amber beam that fell aslant;
Foam, silver-laced, along a curving wave;
Sprawled golden hills, with shadows like spilled wine;
Tall office buildings rearing through the night
Sheer walls of alabaster pierced with gold --
And snowflakes falling on a lonely pine.

I will hold beauty as a shield against despair.
When my heart faints I will remember sights like these:
The dawning wonder in a baby's face,
The kindness in a weary wanton's smile,
The gallant challenge of a cripple's grin,
Seeing forever bodies that are straight;
The fighting courage in a mother's eyes
When she waits, braced, to meet birth's gripping pains;
The shy adoring of a boy's first love,
The eager beauty of his first crusade
Against some wrong which he alone can right --
The tolerance that sometimes comes with age.

When my heart faints I will remember sights like these,
Holding their beauty as a shield against despair:
For if I can see glory such as this
With my dim eyes, my undeveloped brain,
And if from other darkened, selfish lives
Such flashes of brave loveliness can come,
Then surely there is something more than this
Sad maze of pain, bewilderment and fear --
And if there's something, I can still hope on.

" - Elsie Robinson

"[Poem: about cheerfully outlasting any difficulty by focusing on knowing that all things, both good and bad, are temporary and will end and anticipating that, rather than on the difficulty lasting forever. Also try to distract from thinking about or focusing on the difficulty as much as possible to help make the time pass quicker and less painfully.]

'This, Too, Shall Pass Away'

When some great sorrow, like a mighty river,
Flows through your life with peace-destroying power
And dearest things are swept from sight forever,
Say to your heart each trying hour:
'This, too, shall pass away.'

"[A true story - with a message about staying motivated by keeping your eyes on the eventual prize rather than on the temporary obstacles in the way:-] 'Keep Your Goals in Sight' When she looked ahead, Florence Chadwick saw nothing but a solid wall of fog. Her body was numb. She had been swimming for nearly sixteen hours. Already she was the first woman to swim the English Channel in both directions. Now, at age 34, her goal was to become the first woman to swim from Catalina Island to the California coast. On that Fourth of July morning in 1952, the sea was like an ice bath and the fog was so dense she could hardly see her support boats. Sharks cruised toward her lone figure, only to be driven away by rifle shots. Against the frigid grip of the sea, she struggled on - hour after hour - while millions watched on national television. Alongside Florence in one of the boats, her mother and her trainer offered encouragement. They told her it wasn't much farther. But all she could see was fog. They urged her not to quit. She never had . . .until then. With only a half mile to go, she asked to be pulled out. Still thawing her chilled body several hours later, she told a reporter, 'Look, I'm not excusing myself, but if I could have seen land I might have made it.' It was not fatigue or even the cold water that defeated her. It was the fog. She was unable to see her goal. Two months later, she tried again. This time, despite the same dense fog, she swam with her faith intact and her goal clearly pictured in her mind. She knew that somewhere behind that fog were land and this time she made it! Florence Chadwick became the first woman to swim the Catalina Channel, eclipsing the men's record by two hours!" - Unknown

"[A story - with a message about planning and preparation defeating fear and worry:] 'Sleeping Through the Storm' A young man applied for a job as a farmhand. When the farmer asked for his qualifications, he said, 'I can sleep when the wind blows.' This puzzled the farmer. But he liked the young man, and hired him. A few days later, the farmer and his wife were awakened in the night by a violent storm. They quickly began to check things out to see if all was secure. They found that the shutters of the farmhouse had been securely fastened. A good supply of logs had been set next to the fireplace. The young man slept soundly. The farmer and his wife then inspected their property. They found that the farm tools had been placed in the storage shed, safe from the elements. The tractor had been moved into the garage. The barn was properly locked. Even the animals were calm. All was well. The farmer then understood the meaning of the young man's words, 'I can sleep when the wind blows.' Because the farmhand did his work loyally and faithfully when the skies were clear, he was prepared for the storm when it broke. So when the wind blew, he was not afraid. He could sleep in peace!" - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about the importance of challenges:-] 'No Problems Could Be A Problem!' Don't worry if you have problems! Which is easy to say until you are in the midst of a really big one, I know. But the only people I am aware of who don't have troubles are gathered in little neighbourhoods. Most cities and villages have at least one. We call them cemeteries. If you're breathing, you have difficulties. It's the way of life. And believe it or not, most of your problems may actually be good for you! Let me explain. Maybe you have seen the Great Barrier Reef, stretching some 1,800 miles from New Guinea to Australia. Tour guides regularly take visitors to view the reef. On one tour, the guide was asked an interesting question. 'I notice that the lagoon side of the reef looks pale and lifeless, while the ocean side is vibrant and colourful,' a traveller observed. 'Why is that?' The guide gave an interesting answer: 'The coral around the lagoon side is in still water, with no challenge for its survival. It dies early. The coral on the ocean side is constantly being tested by wind, waves, and storms -- surges of power. It has to fight for survival every day of its life. As it is challenged and tested it changes and adapts. It grows healthy. It grows strong. And it reproduces.' Then he added this telling note: 'That's the way it is with every living organism.' That's how it is with people. Challenged and tested, we come alive! Like coral pounded by the sea, we grow. Physical demands can cause us to grow stronger. Mental and emotional stress can produce tough-mindedness and resiliency. Spiritual testing can produce strength of character and faithfulness. So, you have problems -- no problem! Just tell yourself, 'There I grow again; stronger and more powerful!' " - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about the importance of challenges:-] 'No Problems Could Be A Problem - Fresh Fish!' The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever. The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish. If the return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh. The Japanese did not like the taste. To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not like frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower price. So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin. After a little thrashing around, the fish stopped moving. They were tired and dull, but alive. Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference. Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste. The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish. So how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem? How do they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan? If you were consulting the fish industry, what would you recommend? How Japanese Fish Stay Fresh: To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks. But now they add a small shark to each tank. The shark eats a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state. The fish are challenged. Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time we are tired and dull, so we need a Shark in our life to keep us awake and moving? Basically in our lives Sharks are new challenges to keep us active and fitter.....The more intelligent, persistent and competent you are, the more you enjoy a challenge. If your challenges are the correct size, and if you are steadily conquering those challenges, you are a Conqueror. You think of your challenges and get energized. You are excited to try new solutions. You have fun. You are alive! You experiment, learn, act, grow and reach more of your best potential self." - Unknown

Some people tell themselves, 'It’s my nature to worry [imagine negative experiences].' But the truth is that no one is born a worrier. A person might have started worrying at a young age and have many early memories of worrying. A person might find it very difficult not to worry. But this isn’t someone’s basic nature. Worry is essentially [imagination and] self-talk about something negative that you hope won’t happen. You feel anxious and distressed about the possibility. One way out of the worry pattern is to think of potential solutions. Whenever you worry about something, imagine three or more alternate [positive or neutral] outcomes. A happy and joyful person has mastered the art of thinking in patterns that create happiness and joy. Let this be your mind." - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin
