A business man gets stranded in a lonely highway in the US. The tyres of his car get stuck badly in a mud pool. He looks around for help and finally finds an old farmer. This businessman goes to him asking for help to get his car out of the mud. Farmer gauges the situation, and agrees to help him and says, let us take the help of warwick. Warwick was an old bull around, but the helpless business man agrees.
The farmer ties the bull to the car and start shouting loudly,’ FRED, PULL!.. JACK, PULL!.. JOHN, PULL… WARWICK, PULL’. As the farmer keeps shouting these words, the bull Warwick gets the car out of the pool of mud. Businessman is relieved but has a doubt in his mind. He thanks the farmer and asks him,’ you said the bull’s name was Warwick, and he was alone, then who were these Fred, Jack & John?’ Farmer coolly answered, “See, Warwick is old and is also blind. He does not know he is pulling this car alone. The moment he hears the other names, he thinks he is in a team, and he gives his best”.
Moral So is the case with all of us. The very thought that there are people to help us blesses us with a great deal of comfort, hope, confidence and enthuses us to put our heart and soul into any task that we undertake. Indeed, greatest civilizations have always been built on the foundations of a greater level of cooperation from their citizens, and the smartest animals we know — apes, elephants, wolves, dolphins, and crows — tend to live together in cooperative groups and work together for survival. As H.E.Luccock said, “No one can whistle a symphony. It takes an orchestra to play it.” It’s not without reason that the very word *TEAM* is said to stand for *”Together Everyone Achieves More”*.
