Are you patience enough to answer same questions from others repeatedly?
Are you still using the same tone?
Are you still answer with happy heart?
Are you annoyed?
Recently, when we went to a book fair, a grandmother was interested on some Dharma CD, she kept asking the shop assistant, “What type of music?” “Can you play the music ?”
After testing a few CD, the grandmother still asking the same questions again, We salute the attitude of shop assistant, he continuously his charming smiles and answer in happy tones even though he kept repeated the same answers.
What a great example for us to learn! I witnessed the whole process and went over to the shop assistant, I mentioned to him that “What a good attitude! How passionate you are in your job! You are enjoying what you are doing… Keep it up!
Think about it, if our parent or loved one keep asking the same questions, some of us might not able to tolerate and we might “burst out” our anger. Why can’t we be patience like the shop assistant?
In our career life, we must enjoy what we are doing, then only you can bring happiness and peace to yourself and others. If not, there is only suffering, not only to yourself but you are going to spread suffering and negativity to your surrounding.
Be passionate in what you are doing, most important enjoy it!
