We all want to be the best person dressed at a party. We also want to be the best employee in the company we work for. But, how many times have we really walked a second mile and helped a person in need.
Today’s article is based on a 13 words quote to become the best person in your community.
Although the video given below is from the text books of primary school kids, watch it to understand what I am talking about.
Some of the best lessons of life can only be learned from the books that children read.
Amitabh Bachchan, the legendary Bollywood actor, was once known as the angry young man for the roles he played in his movies like Sholay, Deewar, Trishul and others. But, he is old now (Google might be able to tell how old he is) and being angry is no more in. The mega star had once tweeted “We should learn to appreciate what we have, before time makes us appreciate what we had.”
Hence, my advise and 13 word story for today is
Control your anger because it is just one letter away from danger
Anger is an eroding emotion. If not dealt with firmly and positively, it destroys everything around and within us.
The rest is for you to understand, because there is no better person to explain this than our past experiences.
Finally, let me say that I am not any Bachhan or any other movie fan.
I am just a fan of Prophet Muhammad (p.bu.h.) who cared about his followers even on his death bed 1400 years ago.
May God bless us all with Peace and better understanding.
Here is a book that may help you receive that blessing
This book tells us how to
Cope with anger and be angry only at the right time, with the right person, in the right measure.
Grow in the power of understanding ourselves and others and avoid making hasty judgments.
Develop the spirit of forgiveness and learn to forgive even before forgiveness is asked for.
Practise the therapy of cheerfulness when all other therapies fail, cheerfulness can still work.
An invaluable guide by one of India’s most revered spiritual masters, this book offers simple yet profound tips which help us solve the problems and challenges that are a part of everyday life.

ravi The book is not what i was expecting yet it is a powerful tool to control your anger and stay cheerful. The examples are good and connects to you but i found them a bit incomplete. It moves to a more spiritual side rather than staying on the main course of anger management. But overall it is a good book to read.
The_Leader One of the best book for Anger management, talks about changing our attitude internally and spiritually, teachings from Veda’s and Bhagvad Gita takes this book to another dimension if one doesn’t know how to apply these ideas in this book than its useless however this book is simple to understand.
I had recently read a very important question on the topic of marriage:
If marriages are made in Heaven.
Why are they being broken on earth?
Those are my 13 words for today. Now let me try to answer the question and help you succeed in your relationship if you are married.
There is a famous quote from — Ann Landers, which says, “A successful marriage is not a gift; it is an achievement.”
According to me after marriage a man works to provide for his family and a woman works to turn his house into a sweet home. But, in the process the couple sometimes, or perhaps often, forgets to work on their relationship. I believe that only people who work on their relationship become happily married couples. And if a happy and successful marriage makes a person feel like heaven on earth. A failed marriage and divorce can have a devastating effect on the couple’s life. Moreover, it is often children from such marriages who have to bear the brunt.
Hence, I would say that a successful marriage is not just a gift. It is an achievement.
Although there are many books on the subject I would recommend you to buy:
USA Today has said the book is backed by 25 years of landmark marital research, while Seattle Post-Intelligencer says it offers something every relationship can benefit from.

Many write many read but the one who writes the best is God
My 13 word story for today has been inspired by the quote you see in the picture. I have just replace the word ‘You’ with ‘God.’ But, if you look at it closely and think over it deeply you will see that God is indeed the Best Author and find a solution to your many problems. And that solution is called ‘Acceptance.’
Believe in the One Almighty God and put your trust in Him alone and learn to accept things as they come. But, you might say that accepting things as they come means you have stopped dealing with your problems. Let me tell you that it does not.
You should deal with your problems as much as you can, but finally when you see that there is no way out of it accepting the situation is the best solution.
Acceptance is surrendering yourself to the will of God, believing that what he has indeed written the best.
Given below is an excerpt from a book written by one of world’s top leadership experts, Robin Sharma:
‘Acceptance. Looking for the Blessing in Disguise amidst adversity. Relaxing into whatever situation you find yourself in. Embracing the age-old cliché that life doesn’t give you what you want but just might send you what you need (thank Mick). We all get hard days and mean seasons, from time to time. That’s because you and I are enrolled in Greatness School. And challenge/conflict/confusion and uncertainty are stunningly powerful vehicles for our growth. But days get better and seasons change. By accepting “what is”, the bitter times will be shorter and your gorgeous days will get longer. And that’s my wish for you. Always.’
The excerpt is from Chapter 28 titled ‘The Brilliance of Acceptance’ from the Mr Sharma’s book Greatness Guide 2.
