This was written by the CEO of Coca-Cola.)             Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in     the air.             You name them -- work, family, health, friends, and spirit, and     you're keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand     that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back.     But the other four balls:             -- family, health, friends and spirit are made of glass.             If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked,     nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same.     You must understand that and strive for balance in your life. How?             Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It     is because we are different that each of us is special.              Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only     you know what is best for you.              Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling     to them as you would your life, for without them, life is     meaningless.              Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the     past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you     live ALL the days of your life.              Don't give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is     really over until the moment you stop trying.              Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is     this fragile thread that binds us to each together.              Don't be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances     that we learn how to be brave.              Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to     find. The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way     to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep     love is to give it wings.              Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where     you've been, but also where you are going.              Don't forget that a person's greatest emotional need is to feel     appreciated.              Don't be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasure     you can always carry easily.              Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved.     Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the     way. Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, and Today is a     gift: that's why we call it - The Present." ******************************************
