Kisah Ama dan Akong

Kisah Ama dan Akong

Kisah Ama dan Akong
Seorang kakek menyuapi istrinya (sang nenek) yang sedang sakit. Terlihat sangat menyentuh dan mungkin inilah salah satu saat paling romantis dalam hidup sepasang manusia.

Apalah arti kata “I love you“ (aku mencintaimu) bila hanya sebatas di mulut tanpa tindakan nyata (saling menjaga, mengasihi , dan berjanji setia untuk seumur hidup hanya dengan seorang pria/wanita sebagai pasangan)?

Si kakek ini, seumur hidupnya tidak pernah mengucapkan “aku cinta kamu.” Ketika ia melamar calon istrinya (si nenek), hanya tiga kata yang diucapkan: “Percayalah kepada saya.”

Ketika si istri melahirkan anak perempuan pertama, laki-laki itu mengatakan: ” Maaf ya, sudah menyusahkan kamu.”

Ketika anak perempuannya menikah, si istri merasa kehilangan dan si suami ini hanya merangkulnya sambil mengatakan: “Masih ada saya.”

Ketika si nenek itu sedang sakit parah, ia mengatakan kepadanya: “Saya akan selalu ada di sampingmu.”

Ketika si nenek sakitnya makin parah dan akan meninggal, si Kakek hanya mengatakan kepada istrinya: “Kamu tunggu saya ya.“

Seumur hidup, ia tidak pernah sekalipun mengucapkan “aku cinta padamu”, tetapi “CINTA”nya tidak pernah meninggalkan dia. Cintanya diwujudkan dalam hidup keseharian mereka. Seumur hidup tindakan dan perbuatannya selalu penuh dengan CINTA.

Walaupun sulit menemukan pasangan seperti cerita di atas ini, tapi pasti ada pasangan-pasangan yang demikian kuat rasa cintanya di dunia ini. Semoga demikian pula untuk semua pasangan yang sudah memutuskan untuk hidup bersama.

Jadilah Akong & Ama paling romantis, versi Anda masing-masing :)

Writer: Suhardi

The Road to Success
there was a time, a man was walking in a place to search for treasure. Until finally, he arrived at a fork of three. Incidentally there are parents who were standing on the edge of the crossroads.

He was confused because there are three roads leading in different directions. He was hard to decide not to choose the way you want to go. Then he asked the old man, "Hey, old man. May I ask? I was on my way looking for treasure. But in front of me there are three different paths. Can you show me the right way?"

The old man did not answer. He just pointed the way first.

The man thanked her and immediately take the first road.

A few moments later, the man who'd come back again. But this time his whole body stained with mud. He approached the old man and said, "Hey, old man. Just now I asked directions to the treasure and you are pointing to the first street. But I'm actually stuck into the mud pool area. My body would get dirty like this." He then asked, "Now where the path to the treasure? Please show me!"

The old man remained silent. He then pointed to the path of the two.

The man then thanked her and immediately take the latter path.

A few moments later, he was back again. Her body is not only exposed deep mud, but also filled with torn pants and leg injuries such as scratches something.

This time he approached the old man with facial expressions kesal.Ia said with a little angrily, "Hey, old man! I was just asking directions to the treasure and you are pointing to the latter path. But, the road was full of brambles. My whole leg so injured by scratches of thorns. "

This time he asked, "Now I ask you again, where the road to the treasure? You had twice lied and hurt me. Once again lied, you will know the consequences."

The old man remained silent, without removing a word. He is now pointing to the road to three.

"Are you confident and do not lie?" he asked.

The old man nodded his head and once again pointed to the third street.

The man immediately left the old man. But a few moments later, he returned again as he ran like scared. With shortness of breath, he asked angrily, "Hey, old man! Do you want to kill me? On the road there was a lot of wild animals. That is tantamount to looking dead."

The old man finally opened his mouth, saying, "All the roads were actually able to go to the treasure. It's just to get there, you have to go through that path. You can choose the past a pool of mud, thorn bush, or wild animals. You can select one. If you really want to go to where the treasure, you must dare to pass through one of them. If you do not want, please return it. "

I'm sure everyone in the spirit will answer "Yes" when asked if they want to achieve success. But most do not dare to answer when asked if they are willing to pay the price. The fact that often happens is that many people are not willing to take the path of success that looks very heavy. They just want to directly reach the finish line, but do not ever want to put step to achieve the finish line.

One of the challenges you face while struggling to achieve success is to push yourself to go forward despite the way that you are very heavily traveled, winding, and full of obstacles. The challenge is what often makes a person become shriveled balls. The challenge is what ultimately led to a lot of people do not dare to pay the price of success. They are not prepared to pay and would prefer to forget they want to achieve success.

No matter what goals you want to accomplish, obstacles still exist and will not be lost. Where there is success, there are obstacles that obstruct it. Only successful people who dare to face the hurdles after hurdles to finally reach the goal. Instead people prefer to surrender failed. And more sadly, they do not even dare to try to see how hard the journey that must be passed. Mentally they are already defeated long before they start.

Obstacles will always stand in front of success. You have to dare to pass through before it managed to get success. There are two choices, complain and blame the hurdles it or push yourself to overcome these obstacles. You may blame the obstacles that seem to always facing you. But try to think about, whether that barrier will disappear by way of spilling your resentment? No way!

The man then boarded the plane and find a seat according to ticket. Incidentally he sat beside the emergency exit or emergency exit doors. Not long later after all the passengers were on the seat, there came a flight attendant who approached the man.

Beautiful flight attendant told her, "Excuse me sir. Incidentally you sit beside the emergency exit. For that we request your cooperation. If something comes up and forced to land an emergency, please open the emergency door you this so that passengers can get out of an emergency. For more details, please read the safety instructions in the instruction book. "

The man rose to nod their heads to understand what the stewardess was. Then he and another flight attendant immediately provide safety instructions to passengers when the plane began to walk slowly toward the runway.

The plane managed to takeoff and the air leaving the airport. Everything was progressing normally and no problems at all. But in the middle of the journey, the aircraft engine suddenly problematic and should be made an emergency landing. The passengers panicked.

The man's face red with embarrassment. He said, "I do not read it."

Message to readers:

The story above may be common in most people. They are doing something, but when they want to get different results, they instead continue to do the same thing over and over again. That's called "crazy" by Albert Einstein, who refers to people who keep doing the same action and hoping for different results.

If you plant an orange seed, then you will harvest oranges. If you do not want to oranges, but apples, then you have to plant an apple seed. That's a simple analogy. But many people are stuck with a lemon seeds to plant, hoping to harvest apples.

Often success can not be achieved because it is not sensitive to the results obtained and continue to do the same. In fact one of the success formula is flexible with the action we take. If we take actions that continue to bring disappointing results, that means we have to change and take different actions. If it fails again, we must act again in a different way until we succeed. That is what is called flexible.

Many people are not flexible. As a result, they keep doing the wrong thing. Even they do not realize that such actions bring them in the wrong direction. No wonder many do not understand why they still have not succeeded yet been acted and never give up.

Often success is so close to us. The distance to within a degree of flexibility of our actions. If it is not flexible and keep doing the same action is wrong, then do not expect success to come even though the success was so close. Is it possible to see the sunrise, if you always run to the west?
