One young man went to apply for a managerial position in a big company. He passed
the initial interview, and now would meet the director for the final interview. The
director discovered from his CV that the youth’s academic achievements were
excellent. He asked, “Did you obtain any scholarships in school?” the youth answered
” Was it your father who paid for your school fees?” "My father passed away when I
was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees.” he replied.
” Where did your mother work?” “My mother worked as clothes cleaner.”
The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of
hands that were smooth and perfect. ” Have you ever helped your mother wash the
“Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Besides, my
mother can wash clothes faster than me. The director said, “I have a request. When
you go home today, go and clean your mother’s hands, and then see me tomorrow
The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back home,
he asked his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but
with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to her son.
The youth cleaned his mother’s hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the
first time he noticed that his mother’s hands were so wrinkled, and there were so
many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother winced
when he touched it.
This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed
the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fees. The bruises in the
mother’s hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his education, his
school activities and his future.
After cleaning his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes
for his mother.
That night, mother and son talked for a very long time.
Next morning, the youth went to the director’s office.
The Director noticed the tears in the youth’s eyes, when he asked: “Can you tell me
what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?”
The youth answered,” I cleaned my mother’s hand, and also finished cleaning all the
“I know now what appreciation is. Without my mother, I would not be who I am
today. By helping my mother, only now do I realize how difficult and tough it is to get
something done on your own.
The director said, “This is what I am looking for in a manager. I want to recruit a
person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of
others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in
“You are hired.”
This young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates.
Every employee worked diligently and worked as a team. The company’s performance
A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would
develop an “entitlement mentality” and would always put himself first. He would be
ignorant of his parent’s efforts. When he starts work, he assumes that every person
must listen to him, and when he becomes a manager, he would never know the
sufferings of his employees and would always blame others.
You can let your child live in a big house, eat a good meal, learn piano, watch on a
big screen TV. But when you are cutting grass, please let them experience it. After a
meal, let them wash their plates and bowls together with their brothers and sisters. It
is not because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to
love them in a right way. You want them to understand, no matter how rich their
parents are, one day their hair will grow gray, same as the mother of that young
person. The most important thing is your child learns how to appreciate the effort
and experience the difficulty and learns the ability to work with others to get things

Keep doing something, please don't stop...
My friend Kaycee always say "waka for nothing better pass siddon for nothing". Truly, being outside place you better for opportunities. But I'd rather you channel those "wakas more to being in the right locations and doing worthwhile things".
Your value is in the quality of things you've gotten done. Why not build your net worth being more productive with your actions and interactions. Anything worth being done at all, is worth being done well.
The difference between the successful and the struggling lies in their value. Let's start working early building that and make 2015 the most successful year ever.
