The Secret of Success- A Life-Changing Lesson

The Secret of Success- A Life-Changing Lesson

once there was a young man who worked at the factory. his mentor an old technician taught him to talk less and do more. and never stop developing his skills. in every aspect of the factory s operations.

ten years after the old man gets retired the young man becomes a technician himself.

he continues to do his work with the same dedication and diligence as he was taught.

one day an old man visited his young mentor.

the old man sees that the young man is unhappy and he asked what is troubling him.

The young man sighed and poured his heart out. I have following your instructions exactly all these years. no matter what I work on. I keep quiet and focus on the job. I know I have done good work at the factory. and I learned all the skills that can be learned here. but I don’t understand is that the guys who don’t have any experience or capabilities have all been promoted, while I am still making as little as I did before. when I was your apprentice. the old man asked are you positive that you have become indispensable to the factory?

the young man nodded yes

the old man paced back and forth to think.

and after a while, he turned to the young man

you must request a day-off using whatever’s reason you like.

it a time for you to give yourself a break. the young man was surprised by this advice but the more he thought about it the more it made sense. 

he thanks his teacher left quickly to make a day off request. 

when he returned to work after his day off. the manager called him into his office to tell him that things did not go well while he was gone.

others encounter many problems that normally would be handled by him and they have no idea how to solve them.

realizing his importance the manager decided to promote him to the position of senior technician to thank him AMD encourage him to keep up the good work. the young man was great full for his mentor’s wisdom.

surely he thought this was a secret of success. 

from that point on whenever the young man felt that he deserved more than what he is getting, he would take a day off.

when he came back the next day the situation will improve to his satisfaction.

this pattern continued for months. 

one day the young man found that he was blocked from going into the factory. Much to his shocked, he found out that his employment was terminated.

he could not believe it. not know what else to do. he went back to see his mentor. he tries to figure out how things had gone so wrong.

why did I lose my job?

he asked with wounded pride.

do you not do everything as you instructed

actually you did not because you heard only half the lesson the old man shocked his head.

you understood right away that no one pays any attention to a light bulb that is always on.

it is only when it GEOS off that people suddenly take notice. and realized they’ve been taking it for granted. you go so eager to apply this understanding that left before the second half.

second half?

it began to dawn on the young man that perhaps he made a big mistake.

but what was this second half?

the mentor spoke slowly to make his point: the second half is more important than the first one. is the realization that if a light bulb goes off frequently then sooner or later it will be replaced with one that is more reliable.

who want that light bulb that no one can count on to provide illumination.
