Its ur ATTITUDE….and Not Ur Aptitude….  that Determines Ur ALTITUDE… short inspirational story

Long ago, in China there lived a big businessman whose business was to sell combs. Now that he was becoming old and about to retire, he wanted to place the business into wise and able hands.

So, he called forth his three sons and instructed them, that their assignment was to sell combs in the Buddhist monastery. The sons were shocked and confused because the monks in the monastery were bald and they never grew any hair. Anyhow, the three sons went about the job that was assigned to them.
After two days, the first son reported he had sold two combs. When the father asked how, he replied, that he instructed the monks that the comb would be a valuable tool for scratching their backs in case of itching.
The second son appeared later and told that he had sold ten combs by advising the monks that the combs would help their visitors and pilgrims to comb their hair before entering the monastery, as their hair might have ruffled during the journey to monastery.
Then the third son came out with a surprising sales figure of a thousand combs. The father filled with happiness and anxiety, asked him how he had achieved such a feat.
 The third son replied, that he gave the monks an idea.The idea was, that if some of the teachings of Buddha were to be printed/embossed on the comb and given as a take away gift to the visitors and pilgrims; they will remember the teachings of Buddha on a daily basis while combing their hair.

This creative idea struck the deal.
The simple story above goes to show that, “ Where there is a WILL, there is always a way”
Its ur ATTITUDE…. 

And Not Ur Aptitude….  

That Determines Ur ALTITUDE…..

What you sow, you reap… small story

​A small story which beautifully illustrates that what you sow, you reap..
Once upon a time there was a small time business man from a small village who used to sell butter in the nearby town. A big shop owner in the town was his regular customer.

The villager used to deliver every month the shop owner the required butter in 1 Kg. Blocks and in turn he used to get grocery items like sugar, pulses etc from the big shop owner.
Once the shop owner decided to weigh the butter and to his surprise every block of butter weighed 900 gms. instead of 1kg.

Next month when the villager came to supply  Butter, the shop owner was very angry at him and told to leave the shop, to this the villager replied him courteously ” Sir, I am a very poor villager, I don’t have enough money to even buy the required weights for weighing the butter, I usually put the 1Kg sugar you give me on one side of Weighing scale and weigh butter on another side”
This simple story very beautifully illustrates that what we give to others comes back to us..
