ATTITUDE
There was a man who made a living selling balloons at a fair.

He had all colors of balloons,including red,yellow,blue and green.
Whenever business was slow,he would release a helium-filled balloon into
the air and when the children saw it go up,they all wanted to buy one.

They would come up to him,buy a balloon,and his sales would go up
again.He continued this process all day.

One day he felt someone tugging at his jacket.
He turned around to saw a little boy who asked, "If you release a black
balloon,would that also fly ? "

Moved by the boy's concern,the man replied with empathy, "Son,it is not
the color of the balloon,it is what is inside that makes it go up. "

The same thing applies to our lives.
It is what is inside that counts.
The things inside of us makes us go up is our ATTITUDE.

If you have a right/positive attitude towards your LIFE then you will
succeed no matter what......people say u .......................
.......no matter what your ENEMIES tell you.......

If some ASTROLOGER tells you that STOCK MARKETS are not good for you and stay away from it.......... Then make your own decision.... .IF u play
your moves at the right time and on the right stock....... .then no
matter what u will keep on earning.

It is not only about STOCK MARKETS..... .....it is also about anything
that someone has told you not to do.......If u are really interested in
doing a particular GOOD THING....... .then JUST DO IT.

Don't LIVE your Life as though you have already DIED,
DIE as if you have LIVED upto your 100%.

BEST OF LUCK

One day that little boy became an important person in American history. He's known with his famous speech "I Have a Dream" at Lincoln Memorial, Washington DC, August 28, 1963. His name was Martin Luther King, Jr.

Whoa. I didn't know that. That makes sense though. "Black balloon". Nice example!

Um, the analogy would fit Martin Luther King Jr., but I don't think the little boy was him. :X

Anyways, nice story. Thanks for sharing. :thumbs_up
