Pick an answer above and read below to find out if you are/you are going to
be a successful person or not at all.


There was one company "manufacturing combs" which intends to expand its
business and so the management wanted to employ a new Sales Manager.

The company ADVERTISED the vacancy in the newspaper . They are so many
peoples turned up for the interview everyday....accumulated to almost a
hundred peoples in just few days.

The Company now having the problem to choose the right candidate for this
position . So, The Company interviewer had set A Difficult Task to whom who
want to come for final interview.

The Task Is To : *Selling Comb To Monks In Temples*

Only 3 Applicants willing to stay on for this Final Interview challenge. (Mr
A , Mr B , Mr C)

The Chief Interviewer instructed: "*Now I want three of you here to sell
these wooden combs to the monks in the temples. You only have 10 days to do
it and report to me after that*."

After 10 days, they reported.

The Chief Interviewer asked Mr A:"*How many have you sold?"*

Mr A answered:"*Only One."*

The Chief Interviewer asked: "*How did you manage to sell?*

Mr A answered: "*The monks in the temples scolded me when I show them the
comb . But on my way back to downhill I met a young monk who bought it to
scratch his head due to dandruff.*

The Chief Interviewer then asked Mr B: "*How many did you sell?*

Mr B replied: "1*0 pieces. I went to a shrine and noticed many devotees's
hair was in bad shape due to strong wind outside the shrine. The monk in
there listened to my advice and bought 10 combs for their devotees in
showing respect to the Buddha statue."*

Then, The Chief Interviewer asked Mr C:"*How about you?"*

Mr C replied: "*1,000 units."*

The Chief Interviewer and the other 2 interviews were astounded.

The Chief Interviewer asked:* "How you did that?"*

Mr C replied: "*I went to a famous temple. After observing for few days I
discovered that there were many tourists. I then told the Chief Abbot there.
"Sifu, those who come here are much devoted. If you could give them a gift,
it will be more elating to them. I told him that I have a bulk of combs here
and ask him to raft his handwriting on the combs as a present to those visit
here. He was very delighted and straight away ordered 1,000 pieces."*


HARVARD UNIVERSITY had done a research that says :-

1) 85% of success is due to attitude and 15% is capability
2) Attitude is more important than intelligence , specials skills and luck

In another word , professional knowledge only constitutes for 15% of success
of a person and 85% is due to self-cultivation, public relation and
adaptability ability.

Still remember the story of Selling Shoes to African ?

When 2 Salesmen were sent to that continent, one of them reported: Can not
do it. No one wears shoes there?

The second salesman said: *"It is good to market . A lot of opportunity."*

Success and Failure is dependent on how we face problems.

Remember, when the economic is good, there are peoples going bankrupt .

When business is bad , there are many new millionaires produced as well. So
, apply now the 85% right working attitude fully.


I believe this basic principle of *85% right working attitude* is also
applicable to Management.

Many problems encountered by planters in their plantations can be overcome
for they are not as difficult as "*selling comb to monks in temples*".
Logically it's impossible for no monk will buy a comb because it is used for
combing hairs. Monks in temples are simply not your customers!

Now with this story, we learn to "*think out of the box*" and even with 15%
capability, we are confident to solve problems for nothing is impossible as
long as we have the *RIGHT WORKING ATTITUDE *with *COMMITMENT* full of
DEDICATION* and *DETERMINATION*. Every time when we watch *MISSION
IMPOSSIBLE* movie, the ending is always *POSSIBLE*.

THE POSSIBLE. That's the right working attitude!
