I’m Chen Atu(我叫陈阿土)

1136 views. 2011-12-14 15:00

Chen Atu is a Taiwanese farmer, he never went abroad. After saving money almost half of his life, he joined a tour for oversea visit.

Everything oversea was very fresh to him, and because he joined a luxury tour, and everyone own a standard room, it made him very interesting.

In morning, waiter knocked at the door and said loudly: “Good morning Sir!”

Chen Atu stood in amazement, thinking what’s the meaning? In his hometown, when strangers met at their first time, they would ask: ”What’s your family name?”

And then, Chen Atu answered loudly: I’m Chen Atu!

Three days past, every morning, the waiter knocked at the door and said loudly “Good morning Sir!” and Chen Atu answered loudly: “I’m Chen Atu!”

But it made him very angry, he thought the waiter was too foolish, I have told him my name but he still ask everyday, he was very annoyed. At last, he couldn’t help asking the guide what’s the meaning of “Good morning Sir!” The guide told him, he felt that's really a dirty shame.

Chen Atu practiced “Good morning Sir” again and again in order to answer the waiter in a grace way.

Another morning, the waiter knocked at the door as usual, when the door opened, Chen Atu said loudly: “Good morning Sir!”

At the same moment, the waiter answered: “I’m Chen Atu!”

What we can learn: association with people is always a competition of will. Not you influence others, but others influence you. And if we want to be successful, we must bring up ourselves’ influence. Only those who have big influence can become strong.
