Talk to Me - 家好月圓英文插曲

~~ Ciara Newell - Ice Cream ~~

Talk to me
You speak with me
Don't sink before you rise baby
Don't fade away

You hesitate
You seem to wait
For all the time we had
Feels like a world away

Who's to say, we'll be ok
We will make it through the night
Don't wanna wake up in this state
I just want us both to smile

Cause we're the same
And i know that we'll never change
Look i bought your favourite ice cream
I dont wanna see it melt away

If you walk out now
I don't know if we're gonna be the same
Baby just talk with me
Cause i want you to stay here with me

The memories
The things we did
I locked inside my heart
Where i know i won't forget

And now, who’s to say, we’ll be ok
We will make it through the night
Don’t wanna wake up in this state
I just want us both to smile

Cause we’re the same
And I know that we'll never change
look I bought your favorite ice cream
I don’t want to see it melts away

If you walk out now
I don’t know if we could be the same
Baby just talk with me
Cause I want you to stay here with me

I want you to stay here with me

Office boy at Microsoft

A jobless man applied for the position of 'office boy' at Microsoft. The HR manager interviewed him, then a test: clean the floor. "You are engaged," he said, give me your e-mail address, and I'll send you the application to fill, as well as when you will start.

The man replied, " I don't have a computer, neither an email" I'm sorry, said the HR manager, if you don't have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn't exist, cannot have the job.

The man left with no hope at all. He didn't know what to do, with only $10 US in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10 Kg tomato crate. He then sold the tomatoes in a door-to-door round. In less than two hours, He succeeded to double his capital. He repeated the operation three times, and returned home with $60 US. The man realized that he can survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late.

Thus, his money doubles or triples every day. Shortly later, he bought a cart, then a truck, and then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles. 5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the U.S. He started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance. He called an insurance broker, and chooses a protection plan. When the conversation was concluded, the broker asked him his email. The man replied: "I don't have an email".

The broker replied curiously, "You don't have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Do you imagine what you could have been if you had an email?"

The man thought for a while, and replied: an office boy at Microsoft!

Are You Eating All Your Marshmallows?

A fascinating study was conducted at the University of Stamford some years ago. Four-year-old children were placed in a room, one by one, and a marshmallow was placed in front of them. Each child was told that if they didn’t eat the marshmallow in fifteen minutes, they would get two; but if they ate the marshmallow in front of them, they wouldn’t get another one. Two out of three kids ate the marshmallow. Fifteen years later, there was a follow up to the study and what was found was incredible. Every child that participated in the study and hadn’t eaten the marshmallow was successful and many of the children who had eaten the marshmallow were not doing well at all. Some had dropped out of school, others were not making good grades, and others still were very much in debt.
If you only saved and invested only $5 a day in a mutual fund averaging a 10% yearly return (instead of spent it on junk food, cigarettes or alcohol) from age twenty one to age sixty five, you’d have nearly an extra $1,500,000 at retirement.
The conclusion of the study was that people who are able to delay gratification have a much better chance of being successful in life.
There are marshmallow eaters and marshmallow resisters in our society, but the eaters outnumber the resisters three to one.
This principle is perhaps the only success principle that can be applied by anyone. Even if you don’t apply any other principles, financially at least, you will be successful.
