感恩之心 Attitude of Gratitude

一名成績優秀的青年去申請一個大公司的經理職位。 他通過了第一級的面試,董事長做最後的面試,做最後的決定。 董事長從該青年的履歷上發現,該青年成績一 貫優秀,從中學到研究生從來沒有間斷過。 董事長問,你在學校裏拿到獎學金嗎?該青年回答,沒有。 董事長問,是你的父親 為您付學費嗎?該青年回答,我父親在我一歲時就去世了,是我的母親給我付的學費。 董事長問,那你的母親是在那家公司高就?該 青年回答,我的母親是給人洗衣服的。 董事長要求該青年把手伸給他,該青年把一雙潔白的手伸給董事長。 董事長問,你幫你母 親洗過衣服嗎?該青年回答,從來沒有,我媽總是要我多讀書,再說,母親洗衣服比我快得多。 董事長說,我有個要求,你今天回家,給你母 親洗一次雙手,明天上午你再來見我。 該青年覺得自己成功的可能很大,回到家後,高高興興地要給母親洗手,母親受寵若驚地把手伸給孩子。 該 青年給母親洗著手,漸漸地,眼淚掉下來了,因為他第一次發現,他母親的雙手都是老繭,有個傷口在碰到水時還疼得發抖。 青年第一次體會到,母親就是 每天用這雙有傷口的手洗衣服為他付學費,母親的這雙手就是他今天畢業的代價。 該青年給母親洗完手後,一聲不響地把母親剩下要洗的衣服都洗了。 當天晚上,母親和孩子聊了很久很久。 第二天早上,該青年去見董事長。 董事長望著該青年紅腫的眼睛,問到,可以告訴我你昨天回家做了些什麼嗎? 該青年回答說,我給母親洗完手之後, 我幫母親把剩下的衣服都洗了。 董事長說,請你告訴我你的感受。 該青年說,第一,我懂得了感恩,沒有我 母親,我不可能有今天。第二,我懂得了要去和母親一起勞動,才會知道母親的辛苦。第三,我懂得了家庭親情的可貴董事長說,我就是要錄取一個會 感恩,會體會別人辛苦,不是把金錢當作人生第一目標的人來當經理。你被錄取了。 這位青年後來果真工作努力,深得職工擁護,員工也都努力工作,整個公司業績大幅成長。 假如一位孩子從小嬌生慣養,習 慣了被人圍著寵著,什麼都是“我”第一,父母的辛苦都不知道,上班後,以為同事都應該聽他的,當了經理後,不知道員工的辛苦,還要怨天尤人。這樣的人,會有好的學校成績,會有得意風光的一時,但社會上的這類人,都不能成大事,都不會感覺到幸福,都要跌跟鬥,那父母是愛孩子呢還是害孩子呢? 你可以讓你的孩子住 大房子,吃大餐,學鋼琴,看大屏電視,但你在割草時,也要讓你的孩子在大太陽下拔拔野草,你在吃飯後,也要讓你的孩子洗洗碗,不是你沒有錢雇人,而是你真心愛孩子。你要讓孩子知道,即使父母掙不少錢,但早早的白髮,和那位洗衣服的母親沒有本質的差別。但更重要的是,要讓你的孩子學會感恩。 With love and passion, Stanley Cham … Continue reading
