This story is about a man who once upon a time was selling Hotdogs by the
roadside. He was illiterate, so he never read newspapers. He was hard of
hearing, so he never listened to the radio. His eyes were weak, so he never
watched television. But enthusiastically, he sold lots of hotdogs.

He was smart enough to offer some attractive schemes to increase his sales. His
sales and profit went up. He ordered more a more raw material and buns and sold
more. He recruited more supporting staff to serve more customers. He started
offering home deliveries. Eventually he got himself a bigger and better stove.
As his business was growing, the son, who had recently graduated from college,
joined his father.

Then something strange happened.

The son asked, "Dad, aren't you aware of the great recession that is
coming our way?" The father replied, "No, but tell me about it."
The son said, "The international situation is terrible. The domestic
situation is even worse. We should be prepared for the coming bad times."

The man thought that since his son had been to college, read the papers,
listened to the radio and watched TV. He ought to know and his advice should not
be taken lightly. So the next day onwards, the father cut down the his raw
material order and buns, took down the colourful signboard, removed all the
special schemes he was offering to the customers and was no longer as
enthusiastic. He reduced his staff strength by giving layoffs. Very soon, fewer
and fewer people bothered to stop at his Hotdog stand. And his sales started
coming down rapidly and so did the profit. The father said to his son,
"Son, you were right”. “We are in the middle of a recession and crisis.
I am glad you warned me ahead of time."

*Moral of the Story: It’s all in your MIND! And we actually FUEL this
recession much more than we think. *

Thats right Pramod..this is a wonderful story. I believe its the battle of the mind. It depends on how we perceive things...We need to believe in ourself with the help of God...not to just flow away by what others say...
