Motivation - The Bricklayers - Story
« on: February 05, 2013, 08:51:56 AM »
VALUES:  Motivation; Focus; Seeing the big picture.

STORY:    Once upon a time, there were three bricklayers. A man walked passed and asked each of them, in turn, what they were doing.
The first man answered gruffly, “I’m laying bricks.” The second man replied, “ I’m building a wall.”
The third man answered enthusiastically and with pride, “I’m building a beautiful stadium!”

Which one of these men are you like? Can you see the purpose of what you are doing? Can you see ‘the big picture’? Are you motivated?


TEACHING POINT:

This story illustrates two very important ingredients for success:

• ATTITUDE: your attitude towards your task will determine how successful you will be.
• ABILITY TO SEE THE BIG PICTURE: If you are able to see the end result of your efforts, it will focus your energy and provide great motivation to keep going.
