Just follow the Tracks
Once, 3 men lost their way and got stranded in the middle of the forest. They didn’t know where they were and hence they decide that they will stay in the forest for some days until they find their way. So the next morning, one man went in search of some food. After many hours, he came back with a deer over his shoulder. The other two men were surprised to find how he got a deer with no weapons over which the man replied, “I find tracks, I follow tracks, and I got a deer”. They both were slightly confused but decided to ignore and began to eat. A week later the second guy went in search of food and came back with an elk over his shoulder. The other two asked him how he managed to get the elk. He simply replied, “I find tracks, I follow tracks, and I got an elk”. Now it was the turn of the third guy. He thought to himself “I’m going to get a better animal.” So the guy left but he did not return for a long time. Finally, after long hours of waiting, they saw him coming back. His clothes were torn with scrapes and bruises all over his body. He was bleeding. They asked him, “What happened?”. He looked at them and replied, “I find tracks, I follow tracks, and I got hit by a train”.

Here is one such story:
One day, a CEO of a company threw a party for his executives at his mansion. At the back of the mansion, the CEO had a large swimming pool anyone had ever seen. The pool was, however, filled with hungry alligators. The CEO told his executives “I think an employee should be measured by courage. Today I am what I am because of my courage and this is what has made me a CEO. So this is a challenge to all of you present here: Who has the courage to dive into this pool, swim through these alligators, and make it to the other side? The one who will do it will win anything they desire – money, property, jewels, anything!”
All the employees laughed at the outrageous offer and proceeded to follow the CEO. Suddenly, they heard a loud splash. Everyone turned around and saw that the HR manager was in the pool, swimming for his life. He dodged the alligators left and right and made it to the edge of the pool. He pulled himself out just as a huge alligator was about to snap at his shoes. The flabbergasted CEO said, “You are amazing. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. You are brave and surely beyond measure and I will give you anything you want. Tell me what I can do for you. The manager panted for breath, looked up and said, “Can you tell me who pushed me in the pool?”
One day a businessman walked into a bank in Mumbai and asked for some loan assistance. He met a loan officer and told him that he was going to Europe on business tour for two weeks and needed to borrow Rs. 3, 00,000. The bank officer told the businessman that according to the bank policies, the bank will need some kind of security for such a loan. So the businessman handed over the keys to his car Porsche which was parked on the street right in front of the bank. After all the formalities, the bank agreed to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The bank employee drives the Porsche into the bank’s underground garage and parks it there.
Two weeks later, the businessman returns and repays Rs. 3, 00,000 and the accumulated interest on the same which was Rs 900. Puzzled, the loan officer asked the business “We are very happy to have had your business, & the transaction too worked out smoothly, but I am a little confused. While you were away, we researched about you out and found that you are a multimillionaire, then why would you bother to borrow Rs. 3 lakhs? To this, the businessman chuckled and replied, “Where else in Mumbai can I park my car safely for two weeks for just Rs. 900?”
