Jagung

Jagung

Seorang wartawan mewawancarai seorang petani untuk mengetahui rahasia di balik
buah jagungnya yang selama bertahun-tahun selalu berhasil memenangkan kontes
perlombaan hasil pertanian. Petani itu mengaku ia sama sekali tidak mempunyai
rahasia khusus karena ia selalu membagi-bagikan bibit jagung terbaiknya pada
tetangga-tetangga di sekitar perkebunannya.

"Mengapa anda membagi-bagikan bibit jagung terbaik itu pada tetangga-tetangga
anda? Bukankah mereka mengikuti kontes ini juga setiap tahunnya?" tanya sang
wartawan.

"Tak tahukah anda?," jawab petani itu.

"Bahwa angin menerbangkan serbuk sari dari bunga-bunga yang masak dan
menebarkannya dari satu ladang ke ladang yang lain. Bila tanaman jagung tetangga
saya buruk, maka serbuk sari yang ditebarkan ke ladang saya juga buruk. Ini
tentu menurunkan kualitas jagung saya. Bila saya ingin mendapatkan hasil jagung
yang baik, saya harus menolong tetangga saya mendapatkan jagung yang baik pula."

Begitu pula dengan hidup kita. Mereka yang ingin meraih keberhasilan harus
menolong tetangganya menjadi berhasil pula. Mereka yang menginginkan hidup
dengan baik harus menolong tetangganya hidup dengan baik pula.

Nilai dari hidup kita diukur dari kehidupan-kehidupan yang
disentuhnya.

Tahukah Anda

Dengan 11 juta rumah (70% dari penduduk Korsel) lebih yang
terpasang koneksi internet, maka Korea Selatan layak mendapat
gelar "the most wired country".

Korea Selatan memiliki 26.000 lebih internet cafe, dengan
koneksi internet berkecepatan tinggi (broadband), sampai-
sampai ketika pemilihan presiden Korsel yang lalu, masyarakat-
nya melakukan aksi dukung-mendukung calon kandidatnya melalui
chating room.

Motivated

Cara memulai adalah dengan berhenti berbicara dan mulai melakukan. The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. ~ Walt Disney, Niat adalah ukuran dalam menilai benarnya suatu perbuatan, oleh karenanya, ketika niatnya benar, maka perbuatan itu benar, dan jika niatnya buruk, maka perbuatan itu buruk. ~ Imam An Nawaw, Motivasi itu seperti mandi; kalau Anda berhenti melakukannya maka Anda akan "melempem" lagi, sama seperti Anda akan bau lagi bila berhenti mandi. ~ Z ig Ziglar ~ , Successful people live well, laugh often, and love much. They've filled a niche and accomplished tasks so as to leave the world better than they found it, while looking for the best in others, and giving the best they have. , It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed. , There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in - that we do it to God, and that's why we try to do it as beautifully as possible. , Life is a promise; fulfill it, If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. , Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success. , Be what it is that you are seeking. , Every new day is an opportunity to balance the sheet; a new opportunity to put your act right! Thank God for every new day, rather than just for Friday., There is no such thing in anyone's life as an unimportant day. ,What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything? , It's what you learn after you think you know it all that makes a difference. , The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing. , We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations. , You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you. , Those who wait to do a great deal of good at once will never do anything. Life is made up of little things. True greatness consists in being great in the little things. , Great lives are the culmination of great thoughts followed by great actions. , There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.,
