Affirmation: Life is what you give back
(borrowed from a column by Harvey Mackay – bestselling author and businessman May 21, 2015
A son and his father are walking in the mountains. Suddenly, the boy falls, scrapes his knee and screams, “AAAhhhhhhhhh!!!”
To the son’s surprise, he hears his voice repeating, somewhere in the mountains, “AAAhhhhhhhhh!!!”
Curious, he yells, “Who are you?” He receives the same answer, “Who are 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.” And he screams to the mountain, “I admire you!” The voice answers, “I admire you!”
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 and do.
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want competence in your team, improve your competence.
This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life. Life will give you back everything you have given it.”
