There was a farmer who collected horses. One day a horse became ill so he called the vet.
The vet said: Well, your horse has a virus. We'll give him this medicine for three days.
If on the 3rd day and if he's not better,
we're going to have to put him down.
Nearby, the pig listened closely to their conversation. The pig approached the horse and said: Be strong, my friend. Get up or else they're going to put you to sleep!
On the second day, they gave him the medicine. The pig came back to the horse and said:
Come on buddy, get up or else you're going to die! Come on, I'll help you get up. Let's go! One, two, three...
On the third day, the vet said: Unfortunately, we're going to have to put him down tomorrow. Otherwise, the virus might spread and infect the other horses.
After they left, the pig approached the horse and said: Listen pal, it's now or never! Get up, come on! Have
courage! Come on! Get up! Get up! Horse slowly responded..
That's it, slowly! Great! Come on, one, two, three... Good, good. Now faster, come on....
Fantastic! Run, run more! Yes! Yay! Yes! You did it, you're a champion!!!
All of a sudden, the owner came back,
saw the horse running in the field and began shouting:
It's a miracle…! My horse is cured.
Let's cook the pig for the party!
Points for reflection:
This often happens in most of organisations’. Sometimes nobody truly knows who actually deserves the merit of success, or who's actually contributing the necessary support to make things happen!
