Enshrining My Happiness :D

Posted Thursday, June 13, 2013 by deehan1914
Happiness is when you decide to look beyond the imperfections of your life and celebrate the gifts from God. Thank you God for letting me enjoy my core gifts!

[16:18:15] YF:  Janie;
  We would like to appreciate your kind messages. It’s not a compliment but our true impression that your lesson is the best of all that we took. We hope to take another lesson as soon as possible. Thanks. Masa &Yumi


That message was sent by students who are having lessons with me under shared course. The husband first took the lesson with me and he recommended me to his wife. I feel really really great that I am doing what I really want to do and oh.. it's indeed true that if you'll put your heart and strive for excellence in what you do, success will come knocking your door! I consider being truthfully thanked by my students as a success. 

Anyway, our Manager shared a very interesting story before he finally posted the list of Top Performing Teachers and I really like the story! Here it is.

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits (phone numbers).  The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation.

Boy: ‘Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?
Woman: (at the other end of the phone line): ‘I already have someone to cut my lawn.’
Boy: ‘Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now.’
Woman: I’m very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn.
Boy: (with more perseverance) : ‘Lady, I’ll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm beach , Florida.’
Woman: No, thank you.

With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.

Store Owner: ‘Son… I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job.’
Boy: ‘No thanks.’
Store Owner: But you were really pleading for one.
Boy: No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the Job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!’

My Manager said that, just like the lady in this story, there are students who wouldn't trade a teacher for any other teachers out there. And he stressed that we should not forget " to be that boy"! I am still feeling very happy that I still managed to be listed as one of the best performing teachers for the Month of May. It's really very inspiring!

Yes, Sir! I'll strive everyday so that I can be that boy!
