It's just 'Give & Take'

A holy man asked the Lord one day, "Oh Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like".
The Lord led the holy man to two doors. He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in. In the middle of the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew which smelled delicious and made the holy man's mouth water. The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared to be dying. They were holding spoons with very long handles. Each could reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful, but the handle was so long than their arms, that they could not get the spoons back into their mouths! The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering. The Lord said, "Son, you have seen Hell".
They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one. There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man's mouth water again. The people were equipped with the similar long-handled spoons, but here surprisingly, the people were well nourished and plump, talking, laughing and so cheerful. The astonished holy man said, "My Lord, I don't understand. Same scenario in both the rooms, but what makes this Heaven and the other Hell ?".
It is so simple said the Lord, "it requires just one skill. You see, they have learned to feed each other, while the greedy think only of themselves".
It's our attitude that makes our place of work, a hell or heaven!! 'Help and Seek Help' - makes all the difference to each individual's life...and makes our lives hell or otherwise.
Success and happiness is all about effective team-work... Together Everyone Achieves More - That's what a TEAM is!!!
