Goat Vs Horse

There was a farmer who had a horse and a goat…..

One day, the horse became ill. So he called the veterinarian, who said “Well, your horse has a virus. He must take this medicine for three days. I’ll come back on the 3rd day and if he’s not better, we’re going to have to put him down”.

Nearby, the goat listened closely to their conversation. The next day, they gave the horse the medicine and left. The goat approached the horse and said: “Be strong, my friend. Get up or else they’re going to put you to sleep!”

On the second day, they again gave the horse the medicine and left. The goat came back and said: “Come on buddy, get up or else you’re going to die! Come on, I’ll help you get up. Let’s go! One, two, three…”

On the third day, they came to give the horse the medicine and the vet said “Unfortunately, we’re going to have to put him down tomorrow. Otherwise, the virus might spread and infect the other horses”.

After they left, the goat approached the horse and said “Listen pal, it’s now or never! Get up, come on! Have courage! Come on! Get up! Get up! That’s it, slowly! Great! Come on, one, two, three… Good, good. Now faster, come on…… Fantastic! Run, run more!
Yes! Yay! Yes! You did it, you’re a champion…!!!”

All of a sudden, the owner came back, saw the horse running in the field and began shouting “It’s a miracle! My horse is cured. We must have a grand party. Let’s kill the goat!!!!”

The Lesson:
Nobody truly knows which employee actually deserves the merit of success, or who’s actually contributing the necessary support to make things happen.

Remember:
LEARNING TO LIVE WITHOUT RECOGNITION IS A
SKILL! If anyone ever tells you that your work is unprofessional, remember:
AMATEURS BUILT THE ARK [which saved all the species] and PROFESSIONALS BUILT THE TITANIC [all died tragically]

Get On The Bus…


Get On The Bus

Ummmm… Better catch a cab, get on the bus…!!!

Ok, so at my tender age of 20 & some change, you know I’ve had my experiences (some I’d rather forget) with the opposite sex. I was just sitting down the other day and thinking about my previous’ relationships and the nonsense us females have to deal with… Fast forward because I don’t have time to go through all the issues but I realised that a lot of the time people, no actually FEMALES get taken advantage of in relationships and this because they don’t understand their SELF-WORTH! It’s extremely important to KNOW YOUR PLACE in any situation especially those of relationships because if not you can easily be taken ADVANTAGE of and misused, and trust me you will not know what hit you once your situation had gone sour. Not understanding your place sets you up for HURT, you begin to feel like you FAILED, like you’ve just become someones past time, of no PURPOSE and disappointed! During my younger days, when I first started dating I didn’t have a clue as to what I wanted out of my relationships, I didn’t know what I was BRINGING to my relationships, I didn’t know what kind of person I wanted to date or why I even wanted to date them… These were all messed up relationships, they brought NO GROWTH, nothing but stress the feeling if disappointment and REJECTION… It’s a hard place to be at when you’re new, inexperienced and IMMATURE. The biggest lesson I’ve learnt in growing up is how important it is to know what you want and STICK TO YOUR GUNS, it keeps you STRONG minded, it gives you AMMUNITION when you have to defend yourself, it allows you not fall in the face of ADVERSITY and most importantly, it gives you MORALS (one thing most people lack today), benchmarking how much BULLSHIT you are willing to take!!!

So if your not sure and confused about what you want, don’t venture into the path of the unknown… Understand your needs and aim to meet them… If you end up in a place where you can’t be yourself or you feel like your not gaining what you desire, tell the person to get on the bus cos ain’t nobody got time for that… Lol…

I want to share a blog post written by IAMJIDE with you guys… I’m not sure of the motivation behind it, but when I first read it it really tugged a few strings because it brought me back to focus on myself, my DREAMS, GOALS and AMBITIOUS. Now that there are so many changes going on in the world around us, it can become easy to get complacent or start procrastinating, or you may even feel lost in your own space. But I REASSURE you, this piece gets you to put your thinking cap back on a just reminds you to keep your hands placed on the steering wheel of YOUR life. It’s written from an ENTREPRENEURIAL state of mind but it easily applies to business just as much as it applies to everyday life. Click on the link below and be enlightened…
