Don’t Worry About Failures – JACK CANFIELD Quote
This is a beautiful quote from Jack Canfield. Many of us become upset and depressed when facing failures in life. It can be a failure of study, a job interview or any other matter. You must have realised that the moment you feel depressed, your mind becomes weak and you lose the motivation to try again. Train your mindset for mindset motivation. You should make your mind strong to overcome obstacles and turn failures into success. When you have that spirit in your mind, nothing can stop you from achieving the goal.
Don’t Worry About Failures Better Result Is Awaiting For You
A short story of a young man
Once a 23-year-old young man went for an interview in a big company. As part of the interview, the owner of the company gave him the assignment to clean the floor. The owner told him if he cleans the floor neatly, he will surely get the job. This young man cleaned the floor well and made it sparkling. Looking at this, the owner asked him to join the job from the next day.
On the next day, the owner called this young man and asked him to submit his photo, copy of id proof and e-mail id to fulfil the requirements to appoint him to the company. On hearing this, the young man replied, ‘Sir, I am a poor man, I don’t have a computer and never created an e-mail id.”
The owner replied to him, ‘ours is a big company and we have to keep the e-mail id of all the employees working here. Without an e-mail id, you have no existence in this digital world. So, we can’t keep you in the job’.
He left the company premises with a sad and depressed mind. At that time he had only INR-500 in his pocket. He decided to earn some money from selling vegetables. He purchased tomatoes for INR-500 and started his first sale sitting on the roadside. Surprisingly all the tomatoes sold out within 2/3 hrs. Again he purchased for another INR-500 and that also sold out within hours. Like this, he purchased and sold multiple times. By evening he earned a good amount of money from selling vegetables. After returning home while he was relaxing, a thought came to his mind that by selling vegetables he can earn a good profit. He continued this for 6 months.
When he earned a good amount, he bought a hand cart and moving on the hand cart spread his vegetable sale to other places. After a few months, he started selling vegetables on a mini truck. His small business improved and he started a wholesale shop of vegetables. He delivered vegetables to retailers through 10/15 trucks daily and for this, he employed a few workers. After a few years, he became famous in the business.
One day he thought to insure his business and called an insurance agent. The insurance agent asked him for his e-mail id for taking the insurance policy. He replied he doesn’t have an e-mail id. The agent asked with surprise, ‘How is it possible that you have such a big business and you don’t have an e-mail id? Do you know what would have been your status now if you had an e-mail id?’.
After a few seconds of silence, the young man replied, “if I had an e-mail id, I would have been a peon (small job) in a company.’
The insurance broker might not have understood the meaning of his reply, but surely you understood well.
