Kemi and bimbo joined a wholesale company together just after graduation. Both worked very hard.
After several years, the boss promoted Bimbo to sales executive but Kemi remained a sales rep. One day, Kemi could not take it anymore, tender resignation to the boss and complained the boss did not value hard working staff, but only promoted those who flattered her. The boss knew that Kemi worked very hard for the years, but in order to help Kemi realize the difference between her and Bimbo the boss asked Kemi to do the following. Go and find out anyone selling water melon in the market? Kemi returned and said yes. The boss asked how much per kg? Kemi went back to the market to ask and returned to inform boss the 3,500 naira per kg.
Boss told Kemi, I will ask Bimbo the same question? Bimbo went, returned and said, boss, only one person selling water melon. 3,500 naira per kg, 30,000 naira for 10 kg, he has inventory of 340 melons. On the table 58 melons, every melon weighs about 15 kg, bought from the South two days ago, they are fresh and red, good quality.
Kemi was very impressed and realized the difference between herself and Bimbo. She decided not to resign but to learn from Bimbo.
My dear friends, a more successful person is more observant, think more and understand in depth. For the same matter, a more successful person sees several years ahead, while you see only tomorrow. The difference between a year and a day is 365 times, how could you win?
Think! how far have you see
