Sales Man from India! #Brilliance

A young, well qualified Officer left the job, emigrated to Canada for better prospects and applied for a salesman’s job at Vancouver’s premier downtown department store. It was the biggest store in the world: you could get anything there.

The boss asked him, “Have you ever been a salesman before?”

“Yes sir, I was a salesman in India. 

The boss liked him and said, “You can start tomorrow. Learn fast and do well.”

The first working day was long and arduous for the young man, but he got through it.

Finally 6 pm came around. The boss duly fronted up and asked, “How many sales did you make today?”

“Sir, I made ONE sale!” said the young salesman rather happily.

“Only one sale?!” shot back the boss. “No! No! You see, most of my staff make 20 or 30 sales a day.

If you want to keep this job, you’d better be doing better than just one sale.

By the way, how much was your sale worth?”

“933005 pounds,” said the man.

“What?! How did you manage that?” asked the flabbergasted boss.

“Well,” said the salesman, “this man came in and I sold him a small fish hook, then a medium hook and finally a really large hook.

Then I sold him a good fishing rod and some fishing gear.

Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down the coast.

So I told him he’d be needing a boat, so I took him down to the boat department and sold him that 20-foot schooner with the twin engines.

Then he said his Volkswagen wouldn’t be able to carry it, so I took him to our automotive department and sold him that new Deluxe 4X4 Blazer.

I then asked him where he’ll be staying and since he had not decided, I took him to camping department and sold him a six-sleeper camper tent.

Then he said I should throw in about $200 worth of groceries and two cases of beer.”

The boss took two steps back and asked in astonishment, “You sold all that to a guy who came in for a fish hook?!”

“No, sir,” answered the young man, “he came in to buy a headache relief tablet and I convinced him that fishing is the best remedy for headache.”

Boss: “Where did you work?!”

“AGENT in the LIFE INSURANCE CORPORATION OF INDIA, sir.”

Boss: “Please take my chair. I want to join your old organisation.” 😅

Interdependence! #Motivation

A young girl and her father were walking along a forest path. 
At some point, they came across a large tree branch on the ground in front of them.

The girl asked her father, “If I try, do you think I could move that branch?” 

Her father replied, “I am sure you can, if you use all your strength.” 

The girl tried her best to lift or push the branch, but she was not strong enough and she couldn’t move it. 

She said, with disappointment, “You were wrong, dad. I can’t move it.” 

“Try again with all your strength,” replied her father. 

Again, the girl tried hard to push the branch. She struggled but it did not move. 

“Dad, I cannot do it,” said the girl.

Finally her father said, “Young lady, I advised you to use ‘all your strength’. You didn’t ask for my help.

Moral – Our real strength lies not in independence, but in interdependence.

No individual person has all the strengths, all the resources and all the stamina required for the complete blossoming of their vision.

To ask for help and support when we need it is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of wisdom.

Team Spirit #Motivation

A business man gets stranded in a lonely highway in the US. The tyres of his car get stuck badly in a mud pool. He looks around for help and finally finds an old farmer. This businessman goes to him asking for help to get his car out of the mud. Farmer gauges the situation, and agrees to help him and says, let us take the help of warwick. Warwick was an old bull around, but the helpless business man agrees.

The farmer ties the bull to the car and start shouting loudly,’ FRED, PULL!.. JACK, PULL!.. JOHN, PULL… WARWICK, PULL’. As the farmer keeps shouting these words, the bull Warwick gets the car out of the pool of mud. Businessman is relieved but has a doubt in his mind. He thanks the farmer and asks him,’ you said the bull’s name was Warwick, and he was alone, then who were these Fred, Jack & John?’ Farmer coolly answered, “See, Warwick is old and is also blind. He does not know he is pulling this car alone. The moment he hears the other names, he thinks he is in a team, and he gives his best”.

Moral: The word TEAM is said to stand for “Together Everyone Achieves More.”

Story of ‘Glass Of Milk’! #Motivation

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.

He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.

Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water! 

She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it so slowly, and then asked, How much do I owe you?”

You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.”

He said … “Then I thank you from my heart.”

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Many years later that same young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.

Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.

Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.

Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognised her at once.

He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to her case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won.

Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, and then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She read these words …

“Paid in full with one glass of milk”

(Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: “Thank You, God, that your love has spread broad through human hearts and hands.”

There’s a saying which goes something like this: Bread cast on the waters comes back to you. The good deed you do today may benefit you or someone you love at the least expected time.  If you never see the deed again at least you will have made the world a better place – And, after all, isn’t that what life is all about?

Now you have two choices.

1. You can send this page on and spread a positive message. 😉

2. Or ignore it and pretend it never touched your heart.🤐

Story of #UBUNTU!

The motivation behind the Ubuntu culture in Africa.

An Anthropologist proposed a game to the African tribal children.

He placed a basket of sweets near a tree and made the children stand 100 metres away.

Then announced that whoever reaches first would get all the sweets in the basket.

When he said ‘ready steady go!’

Do you know what these children did?

They all held each other’s hands, ran together towards the tree, divided the sweets equally among themselves, ate the sweets and enjoyed it.

When the Anthropologist asked them why they did so, They answered ‘Ubuntu‘.

Which meant – ‘How can one be happy when the others are sad?’

Ubuntu in their language means – ‘I am because we are!’

A strong message for all generations.

Let all of us always have this attitude and spread happiness wherever we go.

Let’s have a Ubuntu Life.
