There was a hunter who bought a bird dog, the only one of its kind in the world. That could walk on water . He couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw this miracle. At the same time, he was very pleased that he could show off his new acquisition to his friends. He invited a friend to go duck hunting. After some time, they shot a few ducks and the man ordered his dog to run and fetch the birds. All day-long, the dog ran on water and kept fetching the birds. The owner was expecting a comment or a compliment about his amazing dog, but never got one. As they were returning home, he asked his friend if he had noticed anything unusual about his dog. The friend replied,

“Yes, in fact, I did notice something unusual. Your dog can’t swim.” 

Some people always look at the negative side. Who is a pessimist?


are unhappy when they have no troubles to speak  feel bad when they feel good, for fear they will feel worse when they feel better spend most of their life at complaint counters  always turn out the lights to see how dark it is are always looking for cracks in the mirror of life  stop sleeping in bed when they hear that more people die in bed than anywhere else cannot enjoy their health because they think they may be sick tomorrow not only expect the worst but make the worst of whatever happens  don’t see the doughnut, only the hole  believe that the sun shines only to cast shadows  forget their blessings and count their troubles  know that hard work never hurts anyone but believe “why take a chance?” Who is an optimist? It is well described by the following:

Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. 

Make all your friends feel there is something in them. 

Look at the sunny side of everything. 

Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. 

Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.*
