You never know! Such a simple phrase, so much meaning. Let me tell you an interesting story. There was once a gentle man who worked for a company. On an average day, he was making the usual rounds in the showroom when rich man walked in interested in making a purchase. The rich man seemed to be confused about a decision concerning which product to pick. The gentleman, realizing this decided to offer some advice about what product he thought was best. The rich man didn’t hesitate to shun down this “thinks he knows it all” good for nothing who was interrupting him. He continued to pay attention to the manager’s opinion.
The gentleman quietly walked away, and continued about his business. A few minutes later, the rich man made a decision for which product to take, which ironically was the initial selection of the gentleman he’d chased away. Proud with his selection, he decides to purchase the product. The product was quite pricey however. The rich man decides to negotiate with the manager for a price cut. The manager was not one to authorize price cuts. That was the duty of the company Chair. The rich man claiming to know the company chair, requests to see him so they could discuss the discount.
It was an amazing surprise when the rich man entered the Chair’s office and the gentleman he’d chased away earlier happened to be the Chair. The nervousness the rich man felt was so over whelming he begun to sweat. The Chair who could not help laughing welcomed him with open arms and offered him the discount. My father loves to tell us this story. As much as my father had the last laugh, he felt like he learned a lot form the experience.
You Never Know! That’s my father’s Motto. One of the best values I learned from my father is that no matter how high you go, it’s important to stay polite and grounded. It’s important to always remember where you came from, because it helps you focus on where you are going. He’s a humble man. He’s funny, He’s classy, very sarcastic, and some people take his jokes too personal. He is one of a kind, and in all that, he remains a grounded man. I am so proud to have him as my Father because he motivates me.
So today I just want to give the biggest shout out to you Daddy! I only aspire to be as hard working, creative, successful, Stylish and Anti- Aging as you are. Happy Birthday Daddy!
