Success is all about constantly challenging one's own self, and not depending on others to bring success to us. Breaking out of one's comfort zone and opening up to new and greater challenges pave the way for great and ongoing advancement in life.

Put a Shark In Your Tank

  1. 1. The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever. The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish.
  2. 2. If the ship took more than a few days to return to shore, the fish were not fresh. The Japanese did not like the taste of the fish.
  3. 3. To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther out and stay longer at sea. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish and they did not like frozen fish.
  4. 4. The frozen fish brought a lower price. So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them tightly in the tanks. After a little thrashing around, the fish stopped moving. They were tired and dull, but alive. But the Japanese could still taste the difference. Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste. The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish.
  5. 5. So how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem? How do they get fresh-tasting fish to the people of Japan?
  6. 6. To keep the fish tasting fresh, the fishing companies continued to put the fish in tanks. But now they added a small shark to each tank. The fish, in an attempt to run away from the shark, stayed constantly alert and hence, fresh.
  7. 7. The shark may eat a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state.
  8. 8. WHAT LESSONS CAN WE LEARN FROM THIS STORY?
  9. 9. Challenges are what keep us FRESH! Instead of avoiding challenges, welcome them and jump into them. Like the Japanese fish: Man thrives, oddly enough, only in the presence of a challenging environment. -L. Ron Hubbard.
  10. 10. Don't create success and lie in it. Create new and bigger successes. If you have achieved your goals, set new and bigger ones. Once you meet your personal and family needs, move on to goals for your neighbourhood, community, the society, even mankind.
  11. 11.  There are no great people in this world, only great challenges which ordinary people rise to meet. William Frederick Halsy, Jr.  To be successful you must accept all challenges that come your way. You can't just accept the ones you like. Mike Gafka
  12. 12. You have the resources, skills and abilities to make a difference. Put a shark in your tank and see how far you can really go!
