TRUE MEANING OF HARD WORK:-
BY SAHIL VASHISTHA
A young man went to seek an important position at a large printing company. He passed the initial interview and went to meet the director for the final interview. The director looked at his resume, and asked, “Have you ever received a scholarship for school?” “No,” the man replied.
“It was your father who paid for your studies?” “Yes.” “Where does your father work?” “My father is a blacksmith.” Then, the director asked the young man to show him his hands. They were soft and perfect. “Have you ever helped your parents at their job?” the director asked. The young man said I never helped as they wanted me to study more books all the time.
Director requested him to go home and wash his father’s hands and asked him to come back tomorrow. That night, when he returned home, he asked his father if he would allow him to wash his hands. His father felt rather strange about the request but agreed. The young man washed his father’s hands, little by little. It was the first time that he noticed all the wrinkles and scars on his father’s hands. Some bruises on his hands were so painful that his skin shuddered upon being touched. It was the first time that the young man recognized what it meant for this pair of hands to have worked every day to be able to pay for his studies. After cleaning his father’s hands, the young man stood in silence, then began to tidy up his father’s workshop.
That night, the father and son talked for a long time. The next morning, the young man returned to the director’s office. The director noticed the tears in his eyes.“Can you tell me what you did, and what you learned yesterday?” he asked the young man. “I washed my father’s hands.
When I finished, I stayed and cleaned his workshop.” He continued, “Now I know what it is to appreciate and recognize that, without my parents, I would not be who I am today. By helping my father, I now realize how difficult it is to do something on my own. I have come to appreciate the importance and the value in helping the family.” The director looked at him with an earnest expression. “This is what I look for in my people.
I want to hire someone who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the hardship of others. You are hired.” A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.
