Our problem with communication is that We don’t listen to understand, but We listen to reply.
About 95% of the problems of life are due to the tone of Voice.
It is not what we say that matters, but it is how we say it. Just change the tone and see the change in life!
A Drugs Law officer stopped at a farm and talked with an old farmer.
He told the farmer, “I need to inspect your farm for illegally grown Drugs.”
The farmer said, “Okay, but don’t go in that field over there…..”, as he pointed out the location.
The Drugs squad Officer verbally exploded saying, “Mister, I have the authority of the Government with me.”
Reaching into his rear trouser pocket, he removed his Official ID Card and proudly displayed it to the farmer.
“See this ID Card? This ID card means I am allowed to go wherever I wish. On any land!!! No questions asked or answers given !! Have I made myself clear? Do you Understand ?”
The old farmer nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores.
A short time later, the old farmer heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the Drugs squad Officer running for his life, being surrounded by a swarm of wild bees.
The Officer was clearly terrified. The old farmer threw down his tools, ran to the fence and shouted at the top of his lungs.
Stop running and show them your ID Card!!!”
1. Lack of humility brings humiliation.
2. Pride goes before a fall.
May God keep us humble because pride will bring one down.
