When I went to church last Sunday, the minister told this story which has actually inspired me the attending congregation. In fact, it was me who got much inspiration about that great “thing” he shared to us during his preaching and homily service. And this time, it’s about time to impart this story to you, too.
Recognizing Potential – by Zig Ziglar
A New York businessman dropped a dollar into the cup of a man selling pencils and hurriedly stepped aboard the subway train. On second thought, he stepped back off the train, walked over to the beggar and took several pencils from the cup. Apologetically, he explained that in his haste he had neglected to pick up his pencils and hoped the man wouldn’t be upset with him. “After all,” he said, “you are a businessman just like myself. You have merchandise to sell and it’s fairly priced.” Then he caught the next train.
At a social function a few months later, a neatly-dressed salesman stepped up to the businessman and introduced himself. “You probably don’t remember me and I don’t know your name, but I will never forget you. You are the man who gave me back my self-respect. I was a “beggar” selling pencils until you came along and told me I was a businessman.”
A wise man said, “A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.” How do you see others? The greatest good we can do for anyone is not to share our wealth with them, but rather to reveal their own wealth to them. It’s astonishing how much talent and ability rests inside a human being. Just as the first step to success is knowing your own potential, the second step is knowing the potential of others. Fortunately, as we recognize our own ability, it’s easy to recognize the ability of others. Once we see it, we can help them discover it for themselves.
The story which I am about to share right now speaks about the process and the benefits of recognizing potentials and abilities. Have you even wondered how this process can greatly boost a person in attaining what he truly wants to achieve in his life? The exact context entails creating wealth and at some points, it is the same as the act of attaining health.
I am able to relate this context with my past experience, particularly when I suffered from having an unsightly pot belly. I really followed fat loss program and I must say it is quite excellent and effective.
However, the most important part is: I was greatly motivated and relieved when all along I had my wife who was always there to give me moral support and encouraged me to continue with my plan – to go on with my fat loss program no matter how frustrating it was. My wife was all the more supportive in giving me the encouragement to continue with what I had started. The effort was a way excruciating and time-consuming but my wife’s kind and encouraging words were so heartwarming – enough to make me feel motivated and inspired as I continue doing the program and progressing from day by day.
During those trying times of mine, I really had to struggle much and spend a great deal of effort realizing the purpose of what I was doing. With my wife, I was greatly convinced that her words have some magical effects on my part. Some of the encouraging words she often tells me include: “Hey honey, I can see that your method works as I see your going slimmer and slimmer each day!”.
Another encouraging statement my wife often tells me is “Oh sweetie, just go on; I can see the progress. Just keep in your heart and mind that what you are doing is not only for you but for your kids and for me, too!”. “Eat healthy not only helps you, it encourages me to eat healthy too.”. “You’re really doing a good favor to the people around you; you are actually serving as a great example and an epitome of a man, trying his best to show the effective ways on how to dissolve fats and become trimmer and slimmer once again.” “You’re sending a positive signal to the people surrounding you to practice a healthy lifestyle”. She also told my mother-in-law that I am practicing healthy lifestyle by eating healthily and exercise regularly now (Can you imagine how’s my feeling during her words to my mother-in-law? I feel PROUD!). These and other kinds of encouraging words, my wife did not notice that she was actually doing a great favor on my part. She was actually the one who forced me to strive more until I became who I am today – a respected person in the eyes of my wife, family, and friends.
And finally my belly fat was gone! Not only gone, I gain a lot healthy foods information which I can share with my wife, my family, my friends and setup this blog to share the similar information with many friends and readers around the World.
So if someone you know is battling against excess fat, recognizing their effort can truly be an amazing way of helping them attain what they really want to achieve. A little recognition, bring a major achievement. I can say, this is the best way to burn fat!
