Dear Folks,

Come across one good story on Ager Mgt. Found good. Let u enjoy

Once upon a time there was a boy with a very difficult character.

His father gave him a bag full of nails and told him to drive one

nail into the garden fence every time he loses his patience and/or

has an argument with someone.

The first day the boy drove 37 nails in the garden fence. In the

following weeks, the boy learns to control himself and the number of

nails driven into the fence gets lower every day:

The boy discovers that it is easier to learn to control himself than

to hammer nails in the fence. At last, the day comes when the boy

does not drive any nails into the garden fence.

Then he goes to his father and tells him that today he did not need

to hammer any nails.

His father then tells the boy to take one nail out from the fence

for every day

he succeeds in controlling his temper and not losing his patience.

Many days pass and finally the boy can tell his father that he has

taken all nails out of the fence. The father talks to his son in

front of the fence and tells him:

My son, you have behaved well, but look how many holes you have

left in the fence

It will never be the same. When you have an argument with someone

and abuse them,

you leave them with wounds like these ones in the fence.

You can stab a man and then take the knife out, but you will always

leave a wound. It does not matter, how many times you say `sorry';

the scars will stay. A wound caused by words hurts just as bad as a

physical wound.

Channelize your anger in productive ways rather than in the negative
