Manufacturing Excellence – Something to think about!

One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big
advice on the door on which was written:
“Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this
company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room
that has been prepared in the gym.”

In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their
colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know
who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the
company itself.

The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered
to control the crowd within the room.

The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated
Everyone thought: “Who is this guy who was hindering my progress?
Well, at least he died!”

One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when
they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood
nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched
the deepest part of their soul.

There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside it
could see himself.

There was also a sign next to the mirror that said:
“There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your
growth: IT IS YOU.”

You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the
only person who can influence your happiness, your realization and
your success. You are the only person who can help yourself.

Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends
change, when your parents change, when your partner changes, when
your company changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you go
beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realize that you are the only
one responsible for your life.

“The most important relationship you can have, is the one you have
with yourself.”

Examine yourself, watch yourself. Don’t be afraid of difficulties,
impossibilities and losses: be a winner, build yourself and your

The world is like a mirror: it gives back to anyone the reflection
of the thoughts in which one has strongly believed.

The world and your reality are like mirrors laying in a coffin,
which show to any individual the death of his divine capability to
imagine and create his happiness and his success.

It’s the way you face life that makes the difference!
If an egg is broken from outside force .. life ends. If an egg is broken from inside force , life begins. Great things always begin from our inside…

~ Swami Vivekananda (1863 – 1902)


  1. I love the egg example of inside/ outside: you can not control many situations, you can only control your REACTION to situations! How many people say “Person X drives me crazy!” Listen, Person X does not drive you crazy, you ALLOW Person X to drive you crazy– you empower their weaknesses! I KNOW this is a hard discipline, but you should read Viktor Frankl’s 1946 book “Man’s Search for Meaning” which chronicles his experiences as a concentration camp inmate and describes his psychotherapeutic method of finding a reason to live– we all have to FIND A PURPOSE FOR OUR EXISTENCE and have to empower only those things that define a meaning for our existence, otherwise we allow our lives to have no significant difference to mankind. Finding excellence in our actions empowers our significance!
