The Comparison


A crow lived in the forest and was absolutely satisfied in life. But one day he saw a swan. "This swan is so white," he thought, "and I am so black. This swan must be the happiest bird in the world." He expressed his thoughts to the swan. "Actually," the swan replied, "I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colours. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation." The crow then approached the parrot. The parrot explained, "I lived a very happy life—until I saw a peacock. I have only two colours, but the peacock has multiple colours."
 
The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him. After the people had left, the crow approached the peacock. "Dear peacock," the crow said, "you are so beautiful. Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. I think you are the happiest bird on the planet." The peacock replied, "I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet.
 
But because of my beauty, I am entrapped in this zoo. I have examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the crow is the only bird not kept in a cage. So for past few days I have been thinking that if I were a crow, I could happily roam everywhere." 

That's our problem too. We make unnecessary comparison with others and become sad. We don't value what we have with us. This  leads to the vicious cycle of unhappiness. Learn the secret of being happy and discard the comparison which leads only to unhappiness

Appraisal and Resignation


A newly joined trainee engineer asks his boss "what is the meaning of appraisal?"

Boss: "Do you know the meaning of resignation?"

Trainee: "Yes I do"

Boss: "So let me make you understand what a appraisal is by comparing it with resignation"


Comparison study: Appraisal and Resignation

In appraisal meeting they will speak only about your weakness,errors and failures.
In resignation meeting they will speak only about your strengths,past achievements and success.

In appraisal you may need to cry and beg for even 10% hike.
In resignation you can easily demand (or get even without asking) more than 50-60% hike.

During appraisal, they will deny promotion saying you didn't meet the expectation, you don't have leadership qualities, and you had several drawbacks in our objective/goal.

During resignation, they will say you are the core member of team; you are the vision of the company how can you go, you have to take the project in shoulder and lead your juniors to success.

There is 90% chance for not getting any significant incentives after appraisal.
There is 90% chance of getting immediate hike after you put the resignation.

Trainee: "Yes boss enough, now I understood my future. For an appraisal I will have to resign ... !!!"

Bamboo & God


One day I decided to quit... 

I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality... I wanted to quit my life. I went to the woods to have one last talk with God.
'God', I said. 'Can you give me one good reason not to quit?' 
His answer surprised me... 
'Look around', He said. 'Do you see the fern and the bamboo?' 
'Yes', I replied. 
When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. 
I gave them light. I gave them water. 
The fern quickly grew from the earth. 
Its brilliant green covered the floor. 
Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. 
But I did not quit on the bamboo. 
In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. 
And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. 
But I did not quit on the bamboo. He said. 

 
'In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit. In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. 'I would not quit.' He said. 'Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth. 

Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant... But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.
It had spent the five years growing roots.  
Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive. I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.' [very true]  
He said to me. 'Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots.'  
'I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you. ' Don't compare yourself to others ..' He said. ' The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern ... Yet, they both make the forest beautiful.'   
Your time will come, ' God said to me. ' You will rise high! ' How high should I rise?' I asked.  
How high will the bamboo rise?' He asked in return.   
'As high as it can? ' I questioned.  
' Yes. ' He said, 'Give me glory by rising as high as you can. '   
I left the forest and bring back this story.  
I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up on you.   
He will never give up on you.  
Never regret a day in your life.   
Good days give you happiness   
Bad days give you experiences;  
Both are essential to life.   
A happy and meaningful life requires our continuous input and creativity. It does not happen by chance. It happens because of our choices and actions. And each day we are given new opportunities to choose and act and, in doing so, we create our own unique journey.' Keep going...   
Happiness keeps you Sweet, 
Trials keep you Strong, 
Sorrows keep you Human, 
Failures keep you humble,   
Success keeps You Glowing,   
but Only God keeps You Going!
