The Recession Story

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 hot dogs and buns  to incrsase his sales.

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 from the next day, being no longer as confident, the father cut down his ordering of supplies,  and reduced his staff by laying some off.

As his customers noticed this down turn, fewer staff, not as much stock for sales, fewer and fewer people bothered to stop at his hotdog stand.

And his sales started coming down rapidly, same is 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 we do!!!!!
