Change in Life’s Outlook June 24, 2006Posted by WishBoNe in Emotions & Feelings, Meaningful Emails.
A blind man sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet and a sign that read:
“I am blind, please help”.
A creative publicist was walking by him and stopped to observe he only had a few coins in his hat. He dropped a few more coins into his hat and without saying anything, took the sign, turned it around, and wrote on it. He placed the sign by the blind man’s feet and left.
That afternoon, the creative publicist returned by the blind man and noticed that his hat was full of bills and coins. The blind man recognized his footsteps and asked if it was him who had re-written his sign and he wanted to know what did he write on it? The publicist responded: “Nothing that was not true, I just rewrote your sign differently”.
He smiled and went on his way. The blind man never knew but his new sign read:
“TODAY IS SPRING AND I CANNOT SEE IT”.
Change your strategy when something does not go your way.
Present yourself in a different way when things are not working out.
A change in outlook can turn your life around.
