SEA CAPTAIN

                           
A ship was headed to its destination and it saw a light in the distance. The Captain of the ship radioed ahead and said, "We are headed your way. Change your course 10 degrees south."
 The signal came back, "You change 10 degrees north." The captain signaled, "I am the captain, you change your course 10 degrees south." The signal came back, "I am a seaman first class. You change10 degrees north." The captain radios back, "I am the Captain of the mighty battleship, the U.S.S. Missouri; you change your course 10 degrees south." The signal came back, "I am in a lighthouse. You might want to change 10 degrees north."

 
Point: Everybody wants the
 other person to change.
 Sometimes we need to change
 ourselves. If we do, everything
 else might change with it.

 
Critical Points: A lot of times
 we want our boss to change,
 economy, recession, good or bad
 "we want the world to change."
 We need to become the captain of
 our own things, maybe change the
 way we do things, change our
 attitude, or the way we look at
 things.
