The Blind Man
One day, there was a blind man sitting on the steps of
a building with a
sign by his feet, that read: "I am blind,
A creative publicist was walking by the blind man and stopped to
observe that the man only had a few coins in his hat. He put
a few of his own coins in the hat, and without stopping to ask for
permission, took the sign, turned it around, and
wrote a new message. He then placed the sign by the
feet of the blind man, and left.
Later that afternoon the creative publicist returned by the
blind man and noticed
that his hat was almost completely full of bills and coins. The blind
man recognized his
footsteps and asked if it was him who had changed
his sign? He also wanted to know what the man wrote on it?
The publicist replied: "I just changed your message so people could relate to it." He
wished the man well, said goodbye, and went on his way.
The blind man didn't know it, but his new sign now read:
"TODAY IS SPRING AND I CANNOT SEE IT"
The Moral of the Story:
CHANGE YOUR STRATEGY WHEN THINGS AREN'T WORKING.
HAVE FAITH THAT YOUR CHANGE WILL BE FOR THE BEST.
