Your Inspirational Quote Thursday March 10 2011

“As an entrepreneur, you’ve probably already made at least a few critical mistakes in your business. After all, it’s part of the trial-and-error process of running your own company.

And if you haven’t made a major mistake, you’re being too cautious!

Here’s the trick: Persistence is strengthened when faced with obstacles. To sustain high levels of success, this is an essential trait.”

~Brad Fallon

Whether the following is true or not makes for a great lesson in life. The following question was asked and answered on a job interview.

Thanks to 50plus.com for this terrific story.

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night.

You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:

1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car?

Think before you continue reading. This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.

You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again.

The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer:

“I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams.”

Never forget to “Think Outside of the Box.”
