There’s a story thatâ€™s going around about the janitor at Carnegie Hall who had been there for 20 years. Heâ€™s 45 years old. He was cleaning up the restroom, and a guy in a business suit went up to him and said, â€˜You seem to be an intelligent fellow. For 20 years youâ€™ve been cleaning the toilets. Why donâ€™t you do something with your life and get another job?â€™ And the janitor said, â€˜What? And leave show business?â€™
Itâ€™s all in how we view the situation and perceive what weâ€™re doing that determines our satisfaction and fulfillment on the job.
