A son and his father were walking on the mountains.

Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"

To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"

Curious, he yells: "Who are you?"

He receives the answer: "Who are you?"
And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!"

The voice answers: "I admire you!"
Angered at the response, he screams: "Coward!"

He receives the answer: "Coward!"
He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?"

The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention."

Again the man screams: "You are a champion!"
The voice answers: "You are a champion!"
The boy is surprised, but does not understand.

Then the father explains: "People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.

It gives you back everything you say or do.
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart.

Life is simply a Reflection of You!. 

Life is a Reflection of You!

There are times in life when you feel so frustrated or desperate that all one can think of is just sitting down in dejection and giving up everything that you have worked for.

You are feeling down, dejected and depressed with the situations in your life and the events that have unfolded so far. Instead of the roses on your chosen path, all you can come across are the thorns, at every step of your life.

What can you do but to give up in despair thinking that this is what destiny has put in hold for you?

If you are right now at this point of your life, then this is the article for you to read. If not, you can easily ignore this and use your time somewhere else as time is the most precious thing in the world.

If you have continued reading the article then It is at this moment, you have to tell yourself that “ No, I won’t give up, no matter what happens and what I have to face.  I cannot give up on me inspite of the tough situations that I am facing.”

You know why? Because champions emerge only after facing the toughest road blocks in their lives.

After getting frustrated with her constant losses and criticism, Li Na, who recently won her first Australian Open in her third attempt, had thought of retiring just before last year’s Wimbledon. In her own words,

When we arriving in Wimbledon I say to Carlos, ‘Eh, Carlos, look, I want to retire’,” Li said. ”And normally I would think that Carlos for sure would say, ‘No, don’t do that, like we try’, but Carlos was like, ‘OK, let’s go home. Go. Yeah’. And I was like, ‘What?’

”In Chinese way, we didn’t like to speak out, so everything just holds [inside] for the self, so he say, ‘You should try to speak out to let us know what happens’. I was like, ‘OK, maybe we try, the last tournament, to see how it’s going in Wimbledon. If going well, I will continue. If not, maybe just over’. So he was like, ‘OK, let’s try it. One more chance’.”
Not to mention, if we look at Monica Seles, who was stabbed in her back while playing a match in 1993, struggled to recover mentally for almost two years before making her comeback to tennis. She was able to reach the finals of a GS and win Australian Open in 1996. The person who attacked her had told her that she was not pretty and that women should not be as thin as a bone. In her autobiography “Getting a Grip”, she gave a detailed account of the after effects of the attack: 
"Darkness had descended into my head. No matter how many ways I analyzed my situation, I couldn't find a bright side. Food became the only way to silence my demons. I'd walk into the kitchen, grab a bag of crisps and a bowl of chocolate ice cream, then head to the couch and eat in front of the television. I still don't know why my anguish found solace in food. Maybe I was subconsciously reacting to Parche's angry comment that 'women shouldn't be as thin as a bone.' If I padded myself with extra weight, I'd be protected from being hurt again."

But she still fought those demons and made a comeback on the tennis circuit. Although she was not as successful as she was before, but she did win a Grand Slam and reached the finals of another one. Also she will always know that she tried and did not give up when she easily could have hung up her boots.
These are just two of the many examples that can be touched upon to prove that true winners have emerged out from situations where they could have easily given up and pursued the easier option. Our minds always wants the easier way out and clings on the negatives of a situation rather than showing us hope. Frankly speaking, it is not the mind who is the guilty party. Everywhere around us if you see in our society, only negatives are reflected upon. Take any newspaper, media channel, sitcom everywhere you look around, it is filled with despair and sadness. In these moments, it is very important for all of us to remind our minds that great works have always been accomplished when they have faced the worst situations and in those times, had the guts to shout out their mind and tell themselves: Let’s try our best one more time and give ourselves one more chance.”


If only Li Na would have given up before Wimbledon, then she wouldn't have been the Australian Open champion once again. Always remember that there is somewhere a Li Na hidden in you before you decide to give up on your goals.

Li Na - "Let’s try it. One more chance’

"Your playing hand has just been taped because of blisters, it's bleeding and paining. "

What will you do if you will have to go out and serve?

Probably you will still be feeling that pain and not able to play with full force or maybe play at your 50% potential.

That's what generally majority of the players would have done. But this scenario did not happen today. Instead three aces  were dished out consecutively. How did this happen?

This is because the player in question was none other than Rafael Nadal. A blistering hand, stunning shotmaking from his opponent and trailing behind 2-4 in the second set and 4-5 in the third set, still Rafael Nadal was able to ease his way out of the match in straight sets.

The analysis can be read anywhere but what really spiked up my interest was the ability of Rafael Nadal to overcome such difficult situations in the match.  He was 2-4 down and still won the second set 5-7 even though Kei Nishikori was the better player for the majority of the set. Even with blisters in his left hand, he chased each and every ball with the ferocity of a tiger, he hit each and every shot faster than the speed of his opponent's shots, and stood his ground irrespective of the barrage of winners that were thrown at him from the other end.

What made this match even more interesting was the way Rafael Nadal handled the tough situations. Even down at 4-5 in the third set, he broke Kei Nishikori back again with ease to level the third set at 5-5 and then won the set 7-6.

This match clearly showed why Rafael Nadal is undoubtedly the toughest player on the tennis circuit.  It's not easy to break down his mental toughness and it was clearly evident in today's match. For me, it was stunning to see how  quickly he was able to recover from a break down and still go on to emerge the winner at the end after every downward curve. It was not just once or twice but it was in every set. In life, every time we have been down, how many times do we get up and face the situation with full force having belief in your abilities, confident that you will come out on top?

That's what you learn from this champion, that you get down and you get up, you get down again but you get up again and so on.Once you learn the craft of embracing the challenges and knock downs that come through your way in matches or life, you have to know fully well that hanging in there, giving your 100% will eventually knock out any tough situation that you may be in . That's what Rafael Nadal does the best and in my mind there is no player who can surpass this champion when it comes to getting up from the constant knockdowns that may come in their way.

That is why they say,

"It does not matter whether you get knocked down or not, what matters is whether you got up."


So next time, there is a challenge in your life, get up and face it up like Rafael Nadal.

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package... 

"What food might this contain?" The mouse wondered - he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap. 



Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning.  "There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!"
The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said,  "Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it."


The mouse turned to the goat and told him "There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!"  The goat sympathized, but said, "I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it. "


The mouse turned to the cow and said, "There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!"  The cow said, "Wow, Mr. Mouse.  I'm sorry for you, but it's no skin off my nose. But wish you well; be assured you are in my prayers "


So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer's mousetrap-- alone.


That very night a sound was heard throughout the house -- like the sound  of a mousetrap catching its prey. The farmer's wife rushed to see what was  caught.   In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught.  The snake bit the farmer's wife. 

The farmer rushed her to the hospital  and she returned home with a fever. Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard  for the soup's main ingredient.  But his wife's sickness continued, so friends and neighbors came to sit with her  around the clock. To feed them, the farmer  butchered the goat.  The farmer's wife did not get well; she died. 


So many people came for her funeral, the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat  for all of them. The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in 
the wall with great sadness. 

So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it doesn't concern you, remember that when one of us is threatened, we are all at risk.  We are all involved in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another because directly or indirectly we might have to suffer!!!
