Here’s a short but interesting lesson from a teacher to her students about the way the world at large will treat you.
One day a school teacher wrote on the board the following:
When she was finished, she looked to the students and they were all laughing at her, because of the first equation which was wrong, and then the teacher said the following, “I wrote that first one incorrectly on purpose, because I wanted you to learn something important.
This was for you all to know how the world out there will treat you. You can see that I gave the correct answer nine times, but none of you congratulated me for it; you all laughed and criticized me because of one wrong thing I did.
So, this is the lesson…:
‘The world will never appreciate the good you do a million times, but will criticise the one wrong thing you do… don’t allow this to make you feel discouraged,
ALWAYS RISE ABOVE ALL THE LAUGHTER AND CRITICISM. STAY STRONG AND KEEP DOING RIGHT WHEN YOU CAN!
