Garbage Truck ......... by Harry

GARBAGE TRUCK by a man named Harry.

( Worth the read )

How often do you let other peoples nonsense change your mood ?
Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive employee
ruin your day?
Unless youre the Terminator, for an instant youre
probably set back on your heels.
However, the mark of a successful
person is how quickly she can get back her focus on whats important.

Sixteen years ago I learned this lesson.
I learned it in the back of a New York City taxi cab.
Heres what happened. I hopped in a taxi, and we took off for Grand Central Station.
We were driving in the right lane when, all of a sudden, a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and
missed the other cars back end by just inches!

The driver of the other car, the guy who almost caused a big accident,
whipped his head around and he started yelling bad words at us. My taxi
driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was friendly.
So, I said, Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car
and sent us to the hospital! And this is when my taxi driver told me
what I now call, The Law of the Garbage Truck.

Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage,
full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their
garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it. And if you let them,
theyll dump it on you. When someone wants to dump on you, dont take it
personally. You just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Youll be
happy you did.

So this was it: The Law of the Garbage Truck. I started thinking, how
often do I let Garbage Trucks run right over me? And how often do I take
their garbage and spread it to other people a work, at home, on the
streets? It was that day I said, Im not going to do anymore. I began
to see garbage trucks.

Like in the movie The Sixth Sense, the little boy said, I see Dead
People. Well, now I see Garbage Trucks. I see the load theyre
carrying. I see them coming to drop it off. And like my Taxi Driver, I
dont make it a personal thing; I just smile, wave, wish them well, and
move on.

Good leaders know they have to be ready for their next meeting. Good
parents know that they have to welcome their children home from school
with hugs and kisses. Leaders and parents know that they have to be
fully present, and at their best for the people they care about. The
bottom line is that successful people do not let Garbage Trucks take
over their day. What about you? What would happen in your life, starting
today, if you let more garbage trucks pass you by? Heres my bet. Youll
be happier. Lifes too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,
so..
Love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who
dont..
