**Story of Appreciation**
Very very touching story.
young academically excellent person went for an interview for a
managerial position in a big company. He passed the first interview; BUT
in that Company, the director did the last interview, and made the
The director discovered from the CV, that the youth’s academic result was excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate research, never was there a year he did not score. The director asked,
“Did you obtain any scholarship in school?” and the youth answered “no”.
director asked,” Did your father pay your school fees?”. The youth
answered, “my father passed away when I was one year old and it was my
mother who paid my school fees”.
The director asked, ” Where did your mother work?”
The youth answered, “my mother worked as cloth cleaner.”
director requested the youth to show his hands and the youth showed a
pair of hands that was smooth and perfect to the director.
The director asked, ” Did you ever help your mother wash clothes before?”
youth answered,” never, my mother always wanted me to study and read
more books, furthermore, my mother could wash clothes faster than I
director said, I have a request, when you go back today, go and help to
clean your mother’s hand, and then see me tomorrow morning.
youth felt that the chance of landing the job was high and when he went
back, he happily wanted to clean his mother’s hands. His mother felt
strange. With happiness mixed with fear, she showed her hands to the
youth cleaned his mother’s hands slowly and his tears fell as he did
that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother’s hands were so
wrinkled, and that there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises
were so painful that she shuddered when his mother’s hands were cleaned
is the first time that the youth realized and experienced that it is
this pair of hands that washed the clothes every day to earn him the
school fees and that the bruises in the mother’s hand were the price
that the mother paid for his graduation and academic excellence and
probably his future.
After finishing the cleaning of his mother’s hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother.
That night, the mother and son talked for a very long time.
Next morning, the youth went to the director’s office.
The director noticed the tear in the youth’s eye and asked:
” Can you tell me what you did and learned yesterday in your house?”
The youth answered, ” I cleaned my mother’s hands and also finished washing all the remaining clothes.’
The director asked, ”Please tell me what you felt.”
The youth said:
“Number 1, I know what appreciation is now’. Without my mother, I would not be successful today.
Number 2, Now I know how to work
together with my mother. Only now do I realize how difficult and tough
it is to get something done.
Number 3, I know the importance and value
The director said, “This is what I
want. I want to recruit a person that can appreciate the help of others,
a person who knows the suffering of others to get things done, and a
person that would not put money as his only goal in life to be my
manager. You are hired.”
on, this young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his
subordinates, every employee worked diligently and as a team and the
company improved tremendously.
The Lessons from this anecdote:
child who has been protected and habitually given whatever he needs,
develops an“entitlement mentality” and always puts himself first. He is
ignorant of his parents’ efforts. When he starts work, he assumes every
person must listen to him. When he becomes a manager, he will never know
the suffering of his employees and always blame others. These kinds of
people, may/will achieve good results and may be successful for a while,
but eventually will not feel a sense of achievement or satisfaction.
we happen to be this kind of (protective) parent, this is the time to
ask the question - whether we did/do love our children or destroy them.
You can let your child live in a big house, eat a good meal, learn to
play the piano, watch a big screen TV but when you are cutting grass,
please let them experience it.
* After a meal, let them wash their plate and bowl together with their brothers and sisters.
* It is not because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love and show them the correct way.
You want them to understand that no matter how rich their parents are,
one day they will grow old, become weak and that their hair too will
The most important thing is for your child to learn how to appreciate,
experience and learn the effort and ability needed to work with others
in order to get things done. They should also value, appreciate what the
parents have done and love them for who they are!
