The wise manager

The manger used to take good care of his employees. He would not hesitate to discuss their personal problems and suggest them solutions too. One day he noticed that one of his employees was low and down. He would not mingle with others and sit alone for hours. Unlike other employees, he would crib about the same problem repeatedly again. The manager tried hard to make him understand that he must look ahead in life but all his effort went down the drain.

One day the manager called him in his cabin and shared a joke with him. The employee burst into laughing though he was still upset about his problems.

The next day the manger again called him into his cabin and shared the same joke. The employee did not feel like laughing since his manger had already shared the joke with him a day before but he still managed to pull his cheeks into a smile. The next day his manger again shared the same joke. He repeated the same joke countless times and observed his employee’s reaction. The employee could not take it any more now. He interrupted his manger in between and told him that he had already shared the joke many times before. The manger said, “Then what? If the same problem can trouble for days to come why can’t the same joke make you laugh time and again?”

happy employee.

The employee took no time to understand that his manager played this trick to make him understand that he must move on in life.

There are so many of us who are always worried about the same problem even after days. Learn to move on in life and do not let anything affect your overall happiness.
