Today I came across a wonderful story on LinkedIn, wanted to share the lesson from it here.
A guy had gone to a tea stall, where he saw a father struggling to get his daughter admitted into a top college.
The man had worked really hard, and the daughter had gotten into a top engineering college. More so, he was willing to work harder to support her through college.
So this guy who posted on LinkedIn offered his help, and after few minutes of helping him out, also offered this Uncle to keep his phone number. Now he will help Uncle and his daughter.
Which brings me to hunger.
When we are hungry in life, we help others in satisfying their hunger.
When we are happy in life, we help others get happier.
When we have risen from nothing, we love to help others rise up.
However, only the people without entitlement can do it.
Only the people who love hard work can help others in theirs. The ones who feel they can work less and get done with, don’t know what lies ahead of them.
Only the people who believe they “have it all” actually have it all. As the 1984 Apple commercial states: “They push the human race forward.”
So, are we pushing the human race forward? Or are we pushing ourselves backward by letting entitlement get in?
