 Jerry is the manager of a restaurant in America. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would
ask him how he was doing, he would always reply, "If I were any
better, I would be twins!"
Many of the waiters at his restaurant quit their jobs when he changed
jobs, so they could follow him around from restaurant to restaurant.
The reason the waiters followed Jerry was because of his attitude.
He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry
was always there, telling the employee how to look on the positive
side of the situation.
Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to
Jerry and asked him, "I don't get it! No one can be a positive person
all of the time. How do you do it?" Jerry replied,
"Each morning I wake up and say to myself, I have two choices today. I
can choose to be in a good mood or I can choose to be in a bad mood. I
always choose to be in a good mood.
Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can
choose to learn from it. I always choose to learn from it.
Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept
their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I
always choose the positive side of life."
"But it's not always that easy," I protested. "Yes, it is," Jerry
said, "Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations.
You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a
good mood or bad mood.
It's your choice how you live your life."
Several years later, I heard that Jerry accidentally did something you
are never supposed to do in the restaurant business: he left the back
door of his restaurant open one morning and was robbed by three armed
men. While trying to open the safe, his hand, shaking from nervousness
slipped off the combination.
The robbers panicked and shot him. Luckily, Jerry was found quickly
and rushed to the hospital. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of
intensive care, Jerry was released from the hospital with fragments of
the bullets still in his body.
I saw Jerry about six months after the accident. When I asked him how
he was, he replied, "If I were any better, I'd be twins. Want to see
my scars?" I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone
through his mind as the robbery took place.
"The first thing that went through my mind was that I should have
locked the back door," Jerry replied. "Then, after they shot me, as I
lay on the floor, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose
to live or choose to die. I chose to live."
"Weren't you scared?" I asked. Jerry continued, "The paramedics were
great. They kept telling me. I was going to be fine. But when they
wheeled me into the Emergency Room and I saw the expressions on the
faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I
read 'He's a dead man.' I knew I needed to take action."
"What did you do?" I asked. "Well, there was a big nurse shouting
questions at me," said Jerry. "She asked if I was allergic to
anything."
'Yes,' I replied. The doctors and nurses stopped working as they
waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, 'Bullets!' Over
their laughter, I told them, 'I am choosing to live. Please operate on
me as if I am alive, not dead'."
Jerry lived thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of
his amazing attitude. I learned from him that EVERY DAY YOU HAVE THE
CHOICE TO EITHER ENJOY YOUR LIFE, OR TO HATE IT.
The only thing that is truly yours that no one can control or take
from you - is YOUR ATTITUDE, so if you can take care of that,
everything else in life becomes much easier.
Now you have two choices to make:
1. You can just close the browser now OR
2. You can forward it to someone you care about.
I hope you will choose #2. I did
