Parable Of The Pencil


We just had a presentation about self-growth and learning a while ago during the up-training here in the company .
Our Company's HR shared a very inspiring story ... 
It's actually "The Parable Of The Pencil"
So let me share my thoughts with you about the things the Pencil maker advised to the pencil 


The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box. There are 5 things you need to know, he told the pencil, before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be.

1. You will be able to do many things,
but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone's hand.

Simply Jhaycee says: You really can do so many things only if you will allow yourself to be guided by God. Only God can show us which way to go so we must let Him lead the way to a happy and fulfilled life.

2. You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time,
but you'll need it to become a better pencil.

Simply Jhaycee says: You will surely encounter painful situations every now and then, 
which is inevitable, but by going through those various problems, you'll become a better and stronger person.

3. You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.

Simply Jhaycee says: We all make mistakes but you can make a difference if you will learn from them.
Make your mistakes a lesson to live by. Don't let those slips ruin your entire life. 

4. The most important part of you will always be what's inside.

Simply Jhaycee says: What other people tell about you doesn't define you as a person. 
What's inside you does.
I cannot blame other people for investing so much time and effort with their physical appearance 
after all how you look actually affects how you carry yourself but always remember, 
what you have outside fades but what's inside remains.
You may look beautiful... You may be smart... 
But your character will always be the basis of your existence.

5. On any surface you are used on, you must leave your mark.
No matter what condition, you must continue to write.

Simply Jhaycee says: You only live once so make the most out of it!
Don't be somebody else's shadow. Just be who you are.
You may face a lot of struggles but you must keep on moving forward.
If your goal is to accomplish your purpose in life then be it!
Don't let anything stop you from achieving your dreams.

The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box 
with purpose in its heart.
