The Boy With a Temper | Career Angles | #shorts

Read Full Transcript

There was a little boy with a temper, and his father wanted to help him get rid of it. So he told him, "every time you get angry, I want you to drive a nail into the fence." And the boy did that. And on the first day, he hammered 30 nails into the fence. And with time and doing this, the boy started to become less angry, and eventually went to his father was said, "Today, I didn't have to drive any nails into the fence." And his father said to him, "Every day, you don't get angry, I want you to remove a nail." And a few months later, the boy came back to his father and said, "Look, there are no nails in the fence." At which point his father walked him over to it and said, "Take a look. There are still holes in the fence. There are still scars on the fence from when you were angry. When you do this with people, there's always going to be a scar there that will never go away." Remember that the next time you get angry.
