Speech by CEO of Coca Cola

 VERY SHORT, MOST EFFECTIVE AND HOW TRUE

30 second Speech by Bryan Dyson (CEO of Coca Cola)

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air.
You name them – Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you’re
keeping all of these in the Air.

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it,
it will bounce back.

But the other four Balls – Family, Health, Friends and Spirit – are
made of glass.
If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked,
nicked, damaged or even shattered.
They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.”

“WORK EFFICIENTLY DURING OFFICE HOURS AND LEAVE ON TIME.
GIVE THE REQUIRED TIME TO YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS & HAVE PROPER REST.”

Don’t take family members for granted

                   A man is at work one day when he notices that his co-worker is wearing an earring. This man knows his co-worker to be a normally conservative fellow, and is curious about his sudden change in “fashion sense.”
    The man walks up to him and says, “I didn’t know you were into earrings.”
“Don’t make such a big deal; it’s only an earring, “he replies sheepishly.
His friend falls silent for a few minutes, but then his curiosity prods him to say, “So, how long have you been wearing one?”
“Ever since my wife found it in my car.”

 

The box is empty

Some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, “This is for you, Daddy.”

The man was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found out the box was empty. He yelled at her, stating, “Don’t you know, when you give someone a present, there is supposed to be something inside? The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and cried, “Oh, Daddy, it’s not empty at all. I blew kisses into the box. They’re all for you, Daddy.”

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.

Only a short time later, an accident took the life of the child. It is also told that her father kept that gold box by his bed for many years and, whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

Moral of the story:- In a very real sense, each one of us, as humans beings, have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses… from our children, family members, friends, and God. There is simply no other possession, anyone could hold, more precious than this. Friends please do not take FAMILY and FAMILY Members for granted. Love them, acknowledge them, Hug them, and Kiss them.

The Wooden Bowl

                        

I guarantee you will remember the tale of the Wooden Bowl tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, a year from now.   

 

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year – old grandson. The old man’s hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered. The family ate together at the table. But the elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth. The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess.                            

              

 ‘We must do something about father,’ said the son. ‘I’ve had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor.’                    

               

So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner. There, Grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner. Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. When the family glanced in Grandfather’s direction, sometimes he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone.       

 

Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food. The four-year-old watched it all in silence.                                    

 

One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor. He asked the child sweetly, ‘What are you making?’

 

Just as sweetly, the boy responded, ‘Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food in when I grow up.’ The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.                                 

                  

The words so struck the parents so that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done.                              

              

That evening the husband took Grandfather’s hand and gently led him

back to the family table. For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family.  

 

And for some reason, neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled.

Fighting for superiority

NO OVERPOWERING   Many relationships fail because one party tries to overpower another or demands too much. People in love tend to think that love will conquer all and their spouses will change the bad habits after marriage. Actually, this is not the case. There is a Chinese saying which carries the meaning that

 

‘It is easier to reshape a mountain or a river than a person’s character.’

   It is not easy to change. Thus, having high expectations on changing the spouse’s character will cause disappointment and unpleasantness.

   It would be less painful to change ourselves and lower our expectations. .

Don’t Blame

NO POINTING FINGERSA man asked his father-in-law, ‘Many people praised you for a successful marriage. Could you please share with me your secret?’
   The father-in-law answered in a smile, ‘Never criticize your wife for her shortcomings or when she does something wrong. Always bear in mind that because of her shortcomings and weaknesses, she could not find a better husband than you.’If we forgive the others, others will ignore our mistake too.

  

   We all look forward to being loved and respected. Many people are afraid of losing face. Generally, when a person makes a mistake, he would look around to find a scapegoat to point the finger at. This is the start of a war. We should always remember that when we point one finger at a person, the other four fingers are pointing at ourselves.
