An engine in a factory failed.
The owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure how to fix the engine.
Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing engines since he was young.
He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work.
He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.
Two of the owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do.
After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer.
He gently tapped something.
Instantly, the engine lurched into life.
He carefully put his hammer away.
The engine was fixed!
A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for Rs.10,000.
“What?!” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!”
So they wrote the old man a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill.”
The man sent a bill that read:
Tapping with a hammer.. . Rs. 2/-
Knowing where to tap… Rs 9,998/-
Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life, makes all the difference.
“Life doesn’t change in ONE MINUTE, but taking decision after thinking for ONE MINUTE can change life.”

As received from my friend-
A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing :
**Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed. I had to stay stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time.
**The same year I reached the age of 60 years and had to give up my favourite job. I had spent 30 years of my life in this publishing company.
**The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.
**And in the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on for several days. The destruction of car was another loss.
At the end he wrote: Alas! It was such bad year !!
When the writer’s wife entered the room, she found her husband looking sad & lost in his thoughts. From behind his back she read what was written on the paper. She left the room silently and came back with another paper and placed it on side of her husband’s writing.
When the writer saw this paper, he found his name written on it with following lines :
**Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to which I had spent years in pain….
**I turned 60 with sound health and got retired from my job. Now I can utilize my time to write something better with more focus and peace…..
**The same year my father, at the age of 95, without depending on anyone or without any critical condition met his Creator…..
**The same year, God blessed my son with a new life. My car was destroyed but my son stayed alive without getting any disability……
At the end she wrote:
This year was an immense blessing of God and it passed well !!!
The writer was indeed happy and amazed at such beautiful and encouraging interpretation of the happenings in his life in that year !!!
Moral : In daily lives we must see that its not happiness that makes us grateful but grate-fulness that makes us happy.
To all my lovely friends ….
