Motivation for the Day

When I woke up in the morning lying in bed, I was asking myself:

What are some of the secrets of success in life?

I found the answer right there, in my very room.

The Fan said... Be cool.
The Roof said... Aim high
The Window said... See the world
The Clock said... Every minute is precious
The Mirror said... Reflect before you act
The Calendar... Be up-to-date
The Door said... Push hard for your goals

Carry a Heart that Never Hates.
Carry a Smile that Never Fades.
Carry a Touch that Never Hurts.

Children SEE, Children DO

Comments from Youtube users:

"it's true how these innocent souls follow us....and become one of us later for which we only complain about later........"

"Great commercial - I agree with the fact that everyone should set a good example, because no good kid wants to see their mom get beat up, and crap. These kids see and do, because they look up to the people who raised them. But they grow out of that and become independent. They become their own person, and they ARE their own person. So, whatever they see, whatever happens, their choices are their own, in the end."

"This goes for parents and famous people. The future does look up to you, so please make us want to do good. Because I'm 13 and I've realized I take after my parents ALOT. Its just natural, growing up with them.......and my parents aren't the best examples. Same with the famous people. I look up to them also and wanna be like them.. So parents and older people, please watch what you do and say. because you all are raising the future."

Disconnect to Connect - (dtac Thailand TVC)

This commercial video is one of the most meaningful videos ever.

In these days when technology is advanced and mobile phones are so affordable, people tend to put their focus on the talking and messaging (or perhaps, gaming as well) devices.

They have unintentionally neglected the people surrounding them.

Is this technology good or bad?

Apart from mobile phone, I personally think the internet has the same impact on everyone as well. Have you realised that sometimes you have resorted to using chat messenger to convey messages to your siblings as well, when they are just a few steps away in the other room?

What have gone wrong?

The ease to communication has somehow distant communication.

Disconnect to connect - this means to put down your mobile phone in order to communicate better with the one besides you. The person besides you probably needs more attention.
