    There were 3 people of different countries that are put to jail for
    3 years. They each given a wish to be fulfilled.

    The American has asked for 3yrs supply of cigars. The romantic
    French has requested for beautiful girls to company him for 3 years
    of jail term. Whereas, the Jew has asked for a telephone that can be
    connected to people around the world.

    3years later, when the American was released, he shouted for a
    lighter to light his cigars... and the French man was frowning on
    the upbringing of his many dozens of children. Whereas the Jews was
    very happy as in the past 3 years, his business has not only grow
    for 200%, he has also on-track and up-to-date on the happenings of
    the world.
    The kind of decision you made will bring you that kind of life in
    the future. Your life today is from the decisions you have made
    3years ago. And whatever decision you make today will decide your
    life for the coming 3years. We must be flexible and be receptive
    with whatever information that comes our way to better lead us to
    the life we have decided! So...
    What/Where do you want to see yourself in 3years?
    What's your decision today?

    The Key

    There is a stiff steel padlock hanging on the door latch. A strong
    iron rod is trying very hard to break it open but failed. Then
    suddenly come a tiny little key, with ease... and with its skinny
    little body, it has open the stiff steel padlock with just a light
    twist. The iron rod is curious and ask, "how could it possible that
    a big strong rod like me can't force open the padlock and with just
    a soft twist your tiny little key can easily open this stiff
    padlock??" The key replied, "because I have a deep understanding of
    its heart."
    Everyone hearts is like a door locked by a stiff padlock. You can't
    simply open it with any strong or big iron rod. You need a suitable
    key of care and love, tender and concern to fit yourself in as a
    gentle person into that stiff and stubborn heart of another person.

At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.-- Alfred D. Souza
