There was once a carpenter
who hated his job.
After 10 years of working for the same company,
he decided to quit.
after 10 years of working together,
his boss wanted help with one final job
before he left the team.
He asked him to build one final house.
He spent the whole summer building this house...
but his heart just wasn't in it.
He used cheap material
and rushed to finish the job quickly.
The result was the worst house he had ever built.
When he had finished,
his boss came to meet him one last time.
Seeing the terrible work,
the smile faded from his face.
"I wanted to do something special for you,
to say thanks for your 10 years of hard work...
So I'm giving you this house as a gift."
"Why didn't you tell me from the start?!
... if I had known that
I would have put in more effort".
This story has a powerful message.
The carpenter had all the skills needed
to build something amazing…
We should take note...
because every day we are building our future.
And if we have a negative mindset,
we won't be able to tap into our potential
Our potential to create the best life
and future possibilities.
