MANAGEMENT LESSONS FROM A FIVE HUNDRED RUPEE NOTE

MANAGEMENT LESSONS FROM A FIVE HUNDRED RUPEE NOTE :

I was in an audience listening to a motivational guru.
He pulled out a 500-rupee note.
Holding it up, he asked, "Who wants this 500-rupee note?"
Lots of hands went up. Including mine.
A slow chorus began to build as people began to shout "Me!" "Me!"
I began to wonder who the lucky one would be who the speaker would choose.
And I also secretly wondered -- and I am sure others did too -- why he would simply give away 500 rupees.
Even as the shouts of "I want it" grew louder, I noticed a young woman running down the aisle.
She ran up onto the stage, went up to the speaker, and grabbed the note from his hand. "Well done, young lady," said the speaker into the microphone.
"Most of us just wait for good things to happen. That's of no use. You've got to make things happen."
The speaker's words have stayed with me ever since.

'Simply thinking about doing something is of no use'

Our lives are like that. We all see opportunities around us. We all want the good things.
But the problem is we don't take action.
We all want the 500-rupee notes on offer but we don't make the move. Get up, and do something about it. Don't worry about what other people might think.

Take action.
