Time To Reflect

A friend sent this story to me via email, it somehow moved me. It reminded me of my old colleagues and so as my Mama. I still miss working. I miss the environment too but my kids are much of importance. They are my life. And, I will definitely stand for them!

The Pig And The Horse

Once, there was a farmer who collected horses. He only needed one more breed

to complete his collection. One day, he found out that his neighbour

had the particular horse breed he needed. So, he constantly bothered

his neighbour until he sold it to him. A month later, the horse became

ill and he called the veterinarian, who said:

” Well, your horse has a virus. He must take this medicine for three

days. I'll come back on the 3rd day and if he's not better, we're

going to have to put him down.”

Nearby, the pig listened closely to their conversation.

The next day, they gave him the medicine and left. The pig approached

the horse and said:

“Be strong, my friend. Get up or else they're going to put you to sleep!”

On the second day, they gave him the medicine and left. The pig came

back and said:

”Come on buddy, get up or else you're going to die! Come on, I'll

help you get up. Let's go! One, two, three...”

On the third day, they came to give him the medicine and the vet said:

”Unfortunately, we're going to have to put him down tomorrow.

Otherwise, the virus might spread and infect the other horses.”

After they left, the pig approached the horse and said:

Listen pal, it's now or never! Get up, come on! Have courage! Come

on! Get up! Get up! That is it, slowly! Great! Come on, one, two,

three... Good, good! Now faster, come on... Fantastic! Run, run more!

Yes! Yay! Yes! You did it, you're a champion!!!”

All of a sudden, the owner came back, saw the horse running in the

field and began shouting:

It's a miracle! My horse is cured. This deserves a party. Let us kill the pig!“

Points for reflection:

This often happens in the workplace. Nobody truly knows which employee actually deserves the merit of success, or who's actually contributing the necessary support to make things happen. Learning to live without recognition is a skill! If anyone ever tells you that your work is unprofessional, remember: Amateurs built the Ark and professionals built the Titanic.

Don’t look to become a person of success, look instead to become a

Person of value!

And when it’s our turn, remember to speak up for the pig.

For me, I just find it so unfair!!! But I admire the pig for helping the horse. Just like what everyone should be. Help one another. And not to forget to return the favor if the other one is in need.
