Phnom Penh: Everyone has different ideas, so the path to success is different. Therefore, what are the differences between success and achievement?
Neak Oknha Kith Meng, President of the Cambodian Chamber of Commerce and CEO of Royal Group, a local giant company, shares his views on differences and the path to success.
Recently, I read on the internet an inspiring story about difference in success and accomplishment, which I think is worth sharing, he wrote on his Facebook account.
An elephant and a dog became pregnant at same time. Three months down the line the dog gave birth to six puppies. Six months later the dog was pregnant again, and nine months on it gave birth to another dozen puppies. The pattern continued.
On the eighteenth month the dog approached the elephant questioning, “Are you sure that you are pregnant? We became pregnant on the same date, I have given birth three times to a dozen puppies and they are now grown to become big dogs, yet you are still pregnant. What’s going on?”.
The elephant replied, “There is something I want you to understand. What I am carrying is not a puppy but an elephant. I only give birth to one in two years. When my baby hits the ground, the earth feels it. When my baby crosses the road, human beings stop and watch in admiration, what I carry draws attention. So, what I’m carrying is mighty and great.”.
“Don’t lose faith when you see others achieving their success. Don’t be envious of others results. If you haven’t received your success, don’t despair”, he wrote.
Say to yourself “My time is coming, and when it hits the surface of the earth, people shall yield in admiration, he added.
Different people have different values when it comes to success. Know your worth!
“Reading this can make you think critically about yourself. I too believe in having strong faith and believing in yourself. Credit to the writer for this inspiring story”, he added.
