I received this story on Whatsapp today. Inspiring ...
Arthur Ashe, The Legendary Wimbledon Player was dying of AIDS which he got due to Infected Blood he received during a Heart Surgery in 1983.
He received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:
"Why did God have to select you for such a bad disease?
To this Arthur Ashe replied:
50 Million children started playing Tennis,
5 Million learnt to play Tennis,
500 000 learnt Professional Tennis,
50 Thousand came to Circuit,
5 Thousand reached Grandslam,
50 reached Wimbledon,
4 reached the Semifinals,
2 reached the Finals and when I was holding the cup in my hand, I never asked God "Why Me?"
So now that I'm in pain how can I ask God "Why Me?"
Happiness keeps you Sweet!
Trials keeps you Strong!
Sorrows keeps you Human!
Failure keeps you Humble!
Success keeps you Glowing!
But only, Faith keeps you Going.
Sometimes you are unsatisfied with your life, while many people in this world are dreaming of living your life.
A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead dreams of flying. But, a pilot on the plane sees the farmhouse dreams of returning home. That's life. Enjoy yours...
If wealth is the secret to happiness, then the rich should be dancing on the streets. But only poor kids do that.
Live simply. Walk humbly. Love genuinely.
