A young stablehand was allowed to join a senior horsemen on a trek but was given a very slow horse. He soon lost the others and it began to rain very hard. All the men get soaked but the young rider quickly dismounted, took off his clothes, folded them into a neat pile under the horse and sat on them until it stopped raining.
When it stopped raining he got dressed and returned home for lunch. The others were amazed at how dry he was.
Thinking that the slow horse was the reason for him being dry, the next day he was given the fastest horse and the rain fell again. The lead rider on the slow horse got drenched and walked in blaming the stablehand. The stablehand looked and said "Perhaps it was not the horse but the fact you took no responsibility for staying dry"
There are many things as employees that we cannot change but we can take responsibility about how we deal with the situation. How many of us see people complain about lack of budget, lack of resources, lack of time but successful people spend their time, not complaining, but making most of the resources at hand - which are you?
