2 Choices

I received a forwarded email from Master Chin which i think it's very meaningful i want to share it here.


Jerry is a manager of a restaurant. He is always in a good mood.

Whenever someone would ask him how he was doing, he would always reply :
"If i were any better, i would be twins"

Many of the waiters in the restaurant quit their jobs if he left the restaurant so that they can follow him around from restaurant to restaurant.


Because Jerry is a natural motivator.
If an employee is having bad time, Jerry was always there, telling him how to look on the positive side of the situation.

Seeing this style, it really made me curious, so one day i went up to Jerry and asked him :
"I don't get it! No one can be positive person all the time. How do you do it?"

Jerry replied,
"Each morning i wake up and say to myself. I have two choices today.
I can choose to be in good mood or i can choose to be in bad mood.

I always choose to be in good mood.

Each time something bad happen,
i can choose to be a victim or i can choose to learn from it.
I always choose i learn from it.

Everytime someone comes to me complaining,
i can choose accept their complaining or i can choose to point out the positive side of life.
I always choose to point out the positive side of live.

BUT it's not always that easy, I protested.

"Yes, it is. Jerry said.

Life is all about choices. When you cut out all the junks in every situation is a choice.

You choose how to react to a situation.
You choose how people will affect your mood.
You choose to be in good mood or bad mood.
It's your choice how you live your life.

Several years later, i heard that Jerry accidentally did something you never suppose
to do in a restaurant business, he left the back door of his restaurant open. And then in the morning, he was robbed by three armed men. While Jerry was opening the safety box, his hand, shaking from nervousness, slipped off the combination. The robbers panicked and shot him.

Luckily, he was found quickly and sent to the hospital.

After 18 hours of operation and weeks in the intensive care, Jerry was released from the hospital with the fragments of the bullets still in his body.

I saw Jerry about six months after the accident.

I asked how was he and he said, "If i were any better, i would be twins. You want to see my scars?"

I declined to see the scars but i did ask him what had gone through his mind as the robbery took place.

"The first thing that came to my mind was that i should have lock the back door."

Then after they shot me, i lay on the floor and i remembered i had two choices,
I could choose to live or choose to die.
I chose to live.

The paramedics were great. They kept telling me i was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the emergency room and i saw the expressions of the nurses and doctors I got really scared. In their eyes, i read, "He's a dead man."

I knew i needed to take action.

What did you do? i asked.

Well, there was a big nurse shouting questions at me, said Jerry. she asked if i was allergy to anything.

Yes! to bullets, i answered.

Over their laughters, i told them, "
I am choosing to live, please operate me as if i am alive, not dead".

Jerry lived thanks to the skills of the doctors but also because of his amazing attitude.

I learned from him that every day you have the choices to either enjoy your life or hate it.

The only thing that is truly yours - that no one can control you is - YOUR ATTITUDE, so if you can take care of that, everything else becomes much easier.

You have two choices now, either to delete this or forward it. I hope you choose the latter one.


I hope this article motivates you in your daily lives. There are always two choices to choose from, I hope you choose to stay positive all the time, and live life to the fullest. :) Stay positive too, ;)

You choose how to react to a situation.
You choose how people will affect your mood.
You choose to be in good mood or bad mood.
It's your choice how you live your life.
