    Attitude is Everything
    An old man lived alone in Minnesota.He wanted to spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work.

    His only son,who would have helped him, was in prison.The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his situation:

    Dear Son,

    I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant my potato garden this year. I hate to misdoing the garden, because your mother always loved planting time. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot.If you were here, all my troubles would be over.
    I know you would dig the plot, for me if you weren't in the prison.

    Love,
    Dad

    Shortly,the old man received this telegram:

    "For Heaven's sake, Dad, don't dig up the garden !!That's where I buried the GUNS!!"


    At 4 a.m.the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and local police officers showed up and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns.
    Confused,the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what happened and asked him what to do next.

    His son's reply was:

    "Go ahead and plant your potatoes, Dad It's the best I could do for you from here."

    NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, IF YOU HAVE DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING DEEP FROM YOUR HEART, YOU CAN DO IT,. IT IS THE THOUGHT THAT MATTERS NOT WHERE YOU ARE.

    amazing & definitely true it is in ones attitude that if one wants to do something with whole heart one can do it anyway & no obstacle is so big that could not be crossed. Thanks for sharing an inspirational thought.

    Excellent Write Up !

    Attitude can move mountains .
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
