Your Disposition Determines Your Position

"It's not your position in life; it's the disposition you have that will change your position." --Dr. David McKinley

The Treasure Beneath the Rainbow

As a child I was told and believed that there was a treasure buried beneath every rainbow. I believed it so much that I have been unsuccessfully chasing rainbows most of my life. I wonder why no one ever told me that the rainbow and the treasure were both within me. --Gerald G. Jampolsky, MD, Child Psychiatrist

It Is How You Ask

A grouchy man walked into a cafe.  After sitting down, he couldn't find on the menu what he was hungry for. Ten minutes passed and still no one had waited on him. Finally he yelled to a waitress who was walking by, "Hey! Do you serve crabs here?"
She said, "Yes, sir. I'll serve you in a minute."

Skating On One Skate

     A boy was skating on one skate.  A man saw him and said, “Don’t you know that you’re supposed to skate on 2 skates?”

     The boy said, “Someone stole my other skate, and that’s why I’m skating on one.” 

     As the man walked away, the boy yelled, “Hey Mister!  Did you know that you can still have a lot of fun on just one skate?”

     You have a choice.  You can get mad at the person who stole your skate, or you can keep having fun on just one skate.
