쿵푸팬더에서 너구리스승이 팬더에게 현재가 선물이라고 했을 때 생각난 글. 좋은글이다. 


Douglas Taft, ex-CEO of Coca Cola, Year 2000 millennium speech.

 

Life is juggling five balls in the air. Imagine life as a game in a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them; work, family, health, friends and spirit and you're keeping all of them in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls - family, health, friends and spirit are made of glass.If you drop one of these they will be irrevocably suffered, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.


How?


Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because you are different that each of us is special. Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you. Don't let life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at that time you live all days of your life. Don't give up when you have still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

 

Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that binds us together. Don't be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn to be brave.

Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings. Don't run through life so that you forget not only where you've been, but also where you are going.

 

Don't forget that person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrived. Life is not a race but a journey to be savored each step of the way. Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is Mystery, and Today is a gift. that's why we call it Present.
