Negativity Lesson

One day a teacher wrote on the board the following:

9 x 1 = 7

9 x 2 = 18

9 x 3 = 27

9 x 4 = 36

9 x 5 = 45

9 x 6 = 54

9 x 7 = 63

9 x 8 = 72

9 x 9 = 81

9 x 10 = 90

When she was done, she looked to the students and they were all laughing at her because of the first equation which was wrong, and then the teacher said the following:

“I wrote that first one wrong on purpose because I wanted you to learn something important. This was for you to know how the world out there will treat you. You can see that I got it RIGHT 9 times, but you all laughed and criticized me because of the ONE wrong thing I did. So this is the lesson:

The world will never appreciate the good you do a million times, but will criticize the one wrong thing you do.”

The moral of this story is…be positive. Do not be like the negative world. Be positive and supportive of others and believe in yourself no matter what others do or say to you or about you.
