One Day A School Teacher Wrote On The Board Story

I often like stories that get you to think about mindset and mentality in life as it goes a long ways in keeping you grounded and open minded even for business items. I recently read this interesting piece that was written to tell a story on how a teacher got laughed at by her students for making a simple error which actually gets you to think. This was the story:
_______________
One day a school teacher wrote the following:
9×1=7
9×2=18
9×3=27
9×4=36
9×5=45
9×6=54
9×7=63
9×8=72
9×9=81
9×10=90

When she was done, she looked to the students and they were all laughing at her, because of the first equation which was wrong, and then the teacher said the following;

I wrote that first one wrong on purpose, because I wanted you to learn something important. This was for you to know how the world out there will treat you. You can see that I wrote RIGHT 9 times, but none of you congratulated me for it. But you all laughed and criticized me because of one wrong thing I did.

That is so true in many ways huh? For me stories like these are great to help you keep an open mind on how many times when you receive criticism as an example people just focus on the negatives. For most people it’s just normal to do so. Instead of kicking yourself and asking why people don’t value your great and positive work I guess you can say like here they definitely recognize it but choose not to focus on it.

In many ways that can mean keep going and try and find platforms or community that actually will fully support all the great things you do.
