Inspiring Story: The Clever Dog..

A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when 
he saw a dog coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. 
But later, the dog is back again.

So, he goes over to the dog and notices he has a note in 
his mouth. He takes the note and it reads "Can I have 
12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please. The dog has money 
in his mouth, as well."

The butcher looks inside and, lo and behold, there is a 
ten dollar Note there. So he takes the money and puts 
the sausages and lamb in a bag, placing it in the dog's mouth. 
The butcher is so impressed, and since it's about closing time, 
he decides to shut up shop and follow the dog.

So off he goes. The dog is walking down the street 
when he comes To a level crossing.

The dog puts down the bag, jumps up and presses the button. 
Then he waits patiently, bag in mouth, for the lights to turn. 
They do, and he walks across the road, with the butcher 
following him all the way.

The dog then comes to a bus stop, and starts looking at the 
time table.The butcher is in awe at this stage. The dog 
checks out the times, and then sits on one of the seats provided. 
Along comes a bus. The dog walks around to the front, looks at 
the number, and goes back to his seat.

Another bus comes. Again the dog goes and looks at the number, 
notices it's the right bus, and climbs on. The butcher, by now, 
open-mouthed, follows him onto the bus.

The bus travels through the town and out into the suburbs, the 
dog Looking at the scenery. Eventually he gets up, and moves to 
the front of the bus. He stands on 2 back paws and pushes the 
button to stop the bus. Then he gets off, his groceries still 
in his mouth.

Well, dog and butcher are walking along the road, and then 
the dog turns into a house. He walks up the path, and drops 
the groceries on the step.

Then he walks back down the path, takes a big run, and throws 
himself against the door. He goes back down the path, runs up 
to the door and again, it throws himself against it. There's no 
answer at the house, so the dog goes back down the path, 
jumps up on a narrow wall, and walks along the perimeter
of the garden.

He gets to the window, and beats his head against it several times, 
walks back, jumps off, and waits at the door.

The butcher watches as a big guy opens the door, and starts 
abusing the dog, kicking him and punching him, and swearing 
at him.

The butcher runs up, and stops the guy. "What in heaven's name
 are You doing? The dog is a genius. He could be on TV, for 
the life of me!" to which the guy responds: "You call this clever? 
This is the second time this week that this stupid dog's forgotten 
his key."

Reflection:Looks like some, people will never be satisfied 
with what they've got.

Lesson from The Story :
When it comes to the work place, Employers do not know 
how to appreciate their people who have served them loyally 
through the years. I've seen companies lose good people for 
the simple fact their leaders failed to show appreciation.

Employers with big egos enjoy the fact that they have more power 
and authority than others. They show, in the way they give orders 
and directions, that they think they are superior.

They get a kick out of displaying this superiority. People who do 
this are fools, and everyone but them knows it.

They are never satisfied because they could not be satisfied even 
if their people perform well.

They don't listen to the opinion and ideas of their subordinates.

Why? Because of their stupid pride and insecurity. People of 
this kind will never be satisfied. Why? Because they are so busy 
wrapped up in themselves and, fact is, the self can never be satisfied.

Happy and productive people are always those who are 
"others-centered" rather than "self- centered."

The greatest idea of leadership is not someone who throws his 
weight around. Rather, he is a servant.

As Holy Quran would say, "He who wish to be a leader should 
first be a servant." His joy is derived from delivering a job 
that others benefit from his contribution. 
Aim for service and success will follow.
