Some Best Motivational Stories - MUST READ

There was a business executive who was deep in debt and could see no way out.
Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment. He sat on the
 park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy.
Suddenly an old man appeared before him. “I can see that something is troubling you,” he said.
After listening to the executive’s woes, the old man said, “I believe I can help you.”
He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand saying, “Take this money. Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time.”
Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.
The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!
“I can erase my money worries in an instant!” he realized. But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it was there might give him the strength to work out a way to save his business, he thought.
With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money once again.
Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check. At the
 agreed-upon time, the old man appeared. But just as the executive was about to hand back the check and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man.
“I’m so glad I caught him!” she cried. “I hope he hasn’t been bothering you. He’s always escaping from the rest home and telling people he’s John D. Rockefeller.”
And she led the old man away by the arm.
The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year long he’d been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him.
Suddenly, he realized that it wasn’t the money, real or imagined, that had turned his life around. It was his newfound self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.


George Bush was sitting in his office wondering whom to invade next when his telephone rang.
'Hello, Mr. Bush!' a heavily accented voice said, 'This is Kuttychettan from Peringottukara, District Thrissur, Kerala... I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring war on you!'
'Well, Kuttychetta,' Bush replied, 'This is indeed important news! How big is your army? '
'Right now,' said Kutty, after a moment's calculation, 'There is myself, my cousin Kunjikannan, my next door neighbor Sahadevan, and the entire volleyball team from the panchayath. That makes nine '.
Bush paused. 'I must tell you, Kutty that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my command.'
'Anganneyanno...' said Kutty. 'I'll have to ring you back!'
Sure enough, the next day, Kutty called again.
'Mr. Bush, it is Kutty, I'm calling from Kunnamkulam STD, the war is still on! We have managed to acquire some infantry equipment!'
'And what equipment would that be, Kutty' Bush asked.
'Well, we have two sand lorries, an elephant and Velluchettan's tiller.'
Bush sighed. 'I must tell you, Kutty, that I have 16,000 tanks and 14,000 armored personnel carriers. Also, I've increased my army to 1-1/2 million since we last spoke.'
'Nindde onnakapinnaku....' said Kutty. 'I'll have to get back to you.'
Sure enough, Kutty rang again the next day.
'Mr. Bush, the war is still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne...... We've modified Velluchettan's tiller by adding a couple of shotguns, sticking on some wings and the rubber thottam generator. Four 7th class pass boys from Batherri have joined us as well!'
Bush was silent for a minute and then cleared his throat. 'I must tell you, Kutty, that I have 10,000 bombers and 20,000 fighter planes. My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to TWO MILLION!'
'Aiyo ennikki vaiyaa....' said Kuttychettan, 'I'll have to ring you back.'
Sure enough, Kuttychettan called again the next day.
'Aiyo, Mr.Bush! I am sorry to tell you that we have had to call off the war.'
'I'm sorry to hear that,' said Bush. 'Why the sudden change of heart'
'Well,' said Kuttychettan, 'We've all had a long chat over a couple of chaiya-kada chaiyas and parrippu vadas, and decided there's no way we can feed two million prisoners of war!'


A priest was on a long flight home after a Church Conference.
The first warning of approaching problems came when the ‘Fasten Your Seat Belt’ sign flashed on.
After a while, a calm voice said” We shall not be serving beverages at this time as we are expecting a little turbulence. Please make sure your seat belt is fastened.”
The priest looked around the aircraft and saw that many of the passengers were becoming apprehensive . Later the voice said” We are so sorry that we are unable to serve meals at this time. The turbulence is still ahead of us.”
And then the storm broke.
The ominous cracks of thunder could be heard even above the roar of the engines. Lightning lit up the darkening skies, and within moments that great place was tossed around like a cork in a celestial ocean.
As the priest looked around he could see that nearly all the passengers were alarmed except one little girl!
She sat calmly, feet tucked under her, looking at pictures in a book, oblivious of the turbulence around her.
The storm blew over. When the plane landed and the passengers were disembarking, the priest approached the little girl and asked her why she was not afraid like the other passenger.
The little girl replied “Cause my Daddy’s the Pilot and he’s taking me home”
That’s confidence.
There are many storms ahead of us- Physical, mental, financial, domestic and others. Being confident in dark times will help us pass through tough times.
