Posts Tagged make sure you shine. Through our lives we are asked to perform tasks without applause and reward. Just get it done and you will be enriched for your actions.
This is a story about four men named Everybody, Someboy, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everbody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job.
Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everbody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everbody blamed Somebody when actually Nobody blamed Anybody. Does this little story sound familiar to anybody?
MORAL TO THE STORY: Don’t assume that what ‘needs to be done’ will be done by others. Without complaint or self-adoration humbly rise to the occasion and complete the job at hand and your selfless actions will be rewarded in ways you can’t imagine.
