A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He
held up a sign which said: "I am blind, please help." There were only a
few coins in the hat.
A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped
them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote
some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see
the new words.
Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the
blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see
how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, "Were you
the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?"
The man said, "I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a
different way." I wrote: "Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it."
Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply
said the boy was blind. The second sign told people that they were so
blessed that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second
sign was more effective?
Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be
innovative. Think differently and positively. Cultivate an attitude of
When life gives you 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000
reasons to smile. Face your past without regret.
Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.
The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling… And even more
beautiful, is knowing that you are the reason behind it!!!
