For all of you who either forgot or never knew...

...Business is not about pleasing everybod.

It's more or less about locating the group of people who are responsive to your message and selling them products that they want or are convinced they "need" to buy.

With that being said here's a quick story about why you should try to please everybody..

Because in the end EVERYBODY LOSES!
"...A man and his son were once going with their donkey to market. As they were walking along by his side a countryman passed them and said, "You fools, what is a donkey for but to ride upon?" So the man put the boy on the donkey, and they went on their way.

But soon they passed a group of men, one of whom said, "See that lazy youngster, he lets his father walk while he rides."


So the man ordered his boy to get off, and got on himself. But they hadn't gone far when they passed two women, one of whom said to the other, "Shame on that lazy lout to let his poor little son trudge along."


Well, the man didn't know what to do, but at last he took his boy up before him on the donkey. By this time they had come to the town, and the passersby began to jeer and point at them. The man stopped and asked what they were scoffing at.


The men said, "Aren't you ashamed of yourself for overloading that poor donkey of yours with you and your hulking son?"

So they decided to father and the son decided to pickup the donkey and carry him.

While crossing the bridge they lost balance and all three of them fell over the bridge and drowned..

Moral of the story; don't worry about pleasing everybody because in the end everybody loses."

    Yeah, you're right man, we can never please everybody even if how good you think you are doing. Maybe, that's part of being created uniquely.

    Yeah man, just an analogy, a pastry/dessert chef can make the best tiramisu that some dinners enjoy, or he can make the best brownie that others dinners like, byt when he tries to make something that combines both tiramisu and brownie.. it make turn out to taste real funny and lost all his customers instead.

    Thank You for the story, I have tried to please everyone before and found out I just made myself unhappy, and then understood that It's not my job to make anyone happy. If you treat people with respect and dignity then they will you also.

      yep, thats normally what ends up happening..

      bill gates makes billions of dollars each year...but theres millions of people who hate ALL WINDOWS products.. So just worry about catering to the people that want to hear your message..and spend a small amount of time converting those who dont (make a believer out of a non believer).

    Yes I always wondered why most people would, in some human-natured way want to please everyone in their lives.

    Going for everyone, trying to please everyone is a sure thing to failure. There will always be people who won't like, agree or appreciate you no matter what you do, so learn this fact and get over with pleasing everyone

    I wasn't expecting that kind of story at all, haha. Very amusing piece indeed, and something I am going to share with my friends.

    Our unique personalities were made to clash one way or another. There's always going to be at least one person out there who hates your guts or disapproves of something you do.
