Anh Ngữ: Remember 9/11: Stories of Hope

On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, off-duty fire Captain Dan Daly was getting ready to take a small airplane out for a leisure flight around New York.

The sky was crystal clear — a perfect day for flying a plane, Daly said.

But before he even got out of his driveway, Daly’s phone rang. The person on the other end told him to go back into the house and turn on the television.

“I saw the plane hitting the building and I knew instantly it was going to be a very bad day for New York and a very bad day for humanity,” Daly said.

Daly, a first responder to the scene, spent the next six months working extensively at Ground Zero. In November 2002, he retired from the NYFD to speak to groups around the world about positive stories of hope. He also volunteers, working with wounded war veterans and teaching public speaking in prisons.

On Monday, he spoke to members of the Palm Beach Round Table at The Colony.

Dick Pietrafesa introduced Daly as a 24-year veteran of the New York Fire Department before retiring. Because of his actions in the days and weeks following 9/11, Daly was one of 100 people awarded the New York State Senate Liberty Medal.

Anh Ngữ: Legend of Mid- Autumn Festival

Also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival or the Mooncake Festival, the Chinese Moon Festival is an important and favorite holiday for Chinese people around the world.

The Chinese Moon Festival is a joyous time for family, friends, and couples to reunite under a full moon. All take a little time to appreciate the beautiful full moon on hopefully the clearest night of the year.

Bright lanterns are carried, hung high from poles, and launched into the sky; the sweet smell of burning joss sticks fills the air as people share traditional mooncakes at night.

Anh Ngữ: Teachers open the door; but You must enter by yourself.

“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.” -Pema Chodron  

Teachers open the door… You enter by yourself.”

Good teachers can teach all day long, but if no one is there to hear it, does the message get conveyed to anyone?  Obviously if we are not physically present with the teaching, we are unable to hear or learn from it.  We must also be mentally present as well, or we are unable to truly hear or learn from a teaching.

Teachers open the door to opportunity, to knowledge, to betterment of one’s self.  They cannot, however, force us to listen or learn; they cannot force us to walk through the doorway they have opened.  We must decide this on our own, we must enter the doorway with our mind and body equally.

Anh Ngữ: Nine Powerful Life Lessons From Studying with a Monk

old, I suffered from anxiety and stomach problems. A compassionate physician and practicing Buddhist referred me to a Taoist monk who specialized in meditation and martial arts. I ended up healing myself of anxiety and stomach issues by doing meditation, and went on a great journey of self-discovery. Here are 9 lessons I learned while studying with a monk: 

1. Keep trying until you get it right. The most important life lesson I learned was trying something three times (maybe even four times) before you stop trying and move on. Also, this monk taught me that, even after multiple tries, you should work on different angles to approach things that are difficult. If you keep trying, you’ll eventually get where you’re going. 

2. The answer to your question is inside of you. As part of the original monastery training, a monk didn’t answer direct questions from a student unless it was a well thought-out question. A Chinese proverb says, “Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself.” Some forms of Zen Buddhism use a very similar style of training. An old saying (by Taoist monks) goes like this: “In making a four corner table, the teacher shows the student how to make one corner. It’s the student’s job to figure out how to make the other three.” They did this because they were preparing a student to deal effectively with problems in the real world. I traveled to South Korea one time, and I found it fascinating how much you have to rely on your intuition when you don’t speak the native language of a country. I remember one instance, I had trouble explaining to the cab driver where my hotel was, and he didn’t speak English. So I had to get out of the cab and ask several people until I could find someone to tell the cab driver in Korean how to get to my hotel. In life, whenever we try new things, we have to go into new places with only a small amount of information. The real world doesn’t give us all the answers. The greatest teacher is inside of us.

Anh Ngữ: 15 Powerful Beliefs that Will Free You from Negativity

There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative. ―W. Clement Stone

When I was a teenager I was the primary target of an extremely persistent bully at my high school. One day I came home in tears and wrote this on the whiteboard hanging on my bedroom wall: “I hate bullies. They make me feel like a loser.” The next day, while I was at school, my grandmother erased what I wrote on the whiteboard and replaced it with this: “An entire body of water the size of the Pacific Ocean can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, all the negativity in the world can’t bring you down unless you allow it to get inside your head.” And from that day forward I felt better. I made a conscious decision to stop letting the bully get inside my head. I changed my beliefs about his level of importance in my life. It isn’t easy to remain positive when negativity surrounds you, but remember that you have full control over what you choose to believe. You can effectively defend yourself against all kinds of negativity by adopting simple, yet powerful, beliefs that support a positive outlook in the face of seemingly negative circumstances. Below you will find 15 such beliefs that have helped free me from the grips of negativity. I have these beliefs written down in my journal, and I review them on a regular basis, as needed, just to keep them fresh in my mind. I hope you will join me by adopting them into your own belief system as well…

Anh Ngữ: 6 Things Happy People Never Do

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design into the present.

Happy people do a lot of things.  They spend time expressing gratitude, cultivating optimism, practicing kindness, nurturing loving relationships, committing to meaningful goals, savoring life’s little pleasures, and so on and so forth. But they NEVER…


Forget about what others are doing.  Stop looking at where they are and what they have.  Nobody is doing better than you because nobody can do better than you.  YOU are walking your own path.  Sometimes the reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes circumstances with everyone else’s public highlight reel.  We listen to the noise of the world, instead of ourselves.  So stop the comparisons!  Ignore the distractions.  Listen to your own inner voice.  Mind your own business. Keep your best wishes and your biggest goals close to your heart and dedicate time to them every day.  Don’t be scared to walk alone, and don’t be scared to enjoy it.  Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, drama, or negativity stop you from being the best you can be.  Keep doing what you know in your heart is right, for YOU.  Because when you are focused on meaningful work and at peace within yourself, almost nothing can shake you.  (Angel and I discuss this in more detail in the “Passion and Growth” chapter of 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.)

Anh Ngữ: How Negative Energy Affects Your Life and How to Clear It

You know that like attracts like, right? So here’s the deal: Positive people are drawn to positive energy; negative people are drawn to negative energy. We tend to perceive negative energy as something other people have. Sure, sometimes we feel negative – as in, “go away and leave me alone, world!” but did you know that negativity can be so ingrained in you that it goes unnoticed?

That’s because negativity sometimes wears a disguise called ‘reality’. It’s easy to rationalize that you’re ‘just being realistic’ in not daring to act on a dream – and believe it!

You may assume that positive people are not being realistic – that they’re being naive, that they are in denial with their heads stuck in the sand, that they put on fake smiles in the face of difficulty and so forth. But are they really happy idiots or is there something to their positivity ?

Consider this: since when does ‘being realistic’ necessarily mean that things will go wrong and that you have to accept that as the truth?
