Success principle story ~ Set your Attitude
Success principles ~ Set your Attitude
An old man was walking along the road. While walking he found some people are working at a construction site along the roadside. The workers were trying to make a building. Out of curiosity, the Old man asked the first worker to whom he met.
"What are you doing?"
He replied with a tired face,
"What to say, I am making a living".
While inspecting their work, the old man came beside another worker. He again put forth the same question to him also
"What are you doing?"
This worker gets a little bit irritated and said.
"Can't you see what I am doing. I am working with the stones"
The Old man went around the upcoming building and met another worker. It seemed that the young guy is happy and doing his work with enthusiasm. The old man placed the same question to this young and enthusiastic guy.
"What are you doing, young man?"
With a happy and radiant face, he replied:
"See we are building a magnificent Church. It will be completed within a few months. Then come and visit us. Here you will find a very beautiful Church building. You will find many people here worshiping God. A lot of work is to be done here."
The young man invited the old man to visit the place again and worship God with him after a few months.
The positive change of attitude is must for the success
From the above old story, you can see the attitude of different people who are working on the same project. The people who have the right attitude is happy in what they are doing.
Those who do not have the right attitude will find it difficult to continue their life. Even though they all are working on the same project, they have a different attitude, a different perspective about their work.
Some think that they are doing the work for a living, for the food, for themselves and for their family. Some focus only on the things they are working. That is why the second guy said that he is working with stones. The third one's focus is on the outcome. "A Magnificent Church". He knows what he is doing and what will be the outcome. Sometimes we will find it difficult to go ahead with our life. Feeling tired and fed up with the work we are doing every day.
I remember the story of the Balloon seller on the beach. Whenever there is a slump in the sales the balloon seller would fill one balloon with oxygen and release it. When the balloon goes up to the sky, children who are playing around would see the balloon and the sales would go up. One day, as usual, he released a balloon. Seeing that one child come to him and asked this question "If you release a Black balloon, will it go up?" The balloon seller replied to that little boy, "The color of the balloon doesn't make any difference, what is inside the balloon is the matter and it is taking it up."
What is inside the men are taking them up and make them successful. It doesn't matter in which field they work or what kind of business they do or which place they live. Our attitude must be set right.
Don't forget we are responsible for our attitude. Whether it is positive or negative, we are responsible. We can see many people blaming their parents and spouse or surroundings for the negative attitude. To some extent, they may be correct. Positive people will attract many people to them. We all love to be with them. But negative people will find it difficult for them to keep friends and family together. They will face difficulty in their workplace.
When we realize that we are having a negative attitude, it is our duty to change the attitude and set it right. Blaming others and staying where we are is dangerous for us. Change! Move away from there! It is your duty. Don't think it is too late. If you choose to change today, you can live your rest of the life happily. Even if it is for a day, change and be happy.
Let us change for a better world.
