The Quitting Carpenter
By Unknown • November 23, 2019
There was once a carpenter who hated his job.
After 10 years of working for the same company, he decided to quit.
However, after 10 years of working together, his boss wanted help with one final job before he left the team.
He asked him to build one final house.
The carpenter reluctantly agreed.
He spent the whole summer building this house... but his heart just wasn't in it.
He used cheap material and rushed to finish the job quickly.
The result was the worst house he had ever built.
When he had finished, his boss came to meet him one last time. Seeing the terrible work, the smile faded from his face.
"I wanted to do something special for you, to say thanks for your 10 years of hard work... So I'm giving you this house as a gift."
The carpenter was furious.
"Why didn't you tell me from the start?!... if I had known that I would have put in more effort".
This story has a powerful message.
The carpenter had all the skills needed to build something amazing… but his negative mindset held him back.
We should take note... because every day we are building our future.
And if we have a negative mindset, we won't be able to tap into our potential.
Our potential to create the best life and future possibilities.
