“HOW” we say things is more important Than “WHAT” we say

When you say something aim at people’s hearts more 
than at their minds 

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: “I am blind, please help.” There were only a few coins in the hat. A man who happened to pass by took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. Then he took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some other words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words. Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. 

That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?” The man replied: “I only wrote the same, but in a different way.” I wrote: “Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it.” 


Be creative. Be innovative
Think positively.
Touch people’s hearts more than their minds Feelings are more powerful than thoughts
