This is an old one, and still amusing on self appraisal..

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits. The store owner listened to the following conversation.

The boy asked, "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?"

The woman replied, "I already have someone to cut my lawn."

"Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now."

The woman responded that she was very satisfied with the person who was presently cutting her lawn.

The little boy found more perseverance and offered, "Lady, I'll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of North Palm Beach, Florida."

Again the woman answered in the negative. With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver.

The druggist, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy and said, "Son... I like your attitude, I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job."

The little boy replied, "No thanks. I was just checking on the job I already have!"

Hi Priyanka,

Good one...

Hence they say, nothing beats a self check. If you know what you are doing, there is no looking back...

Also, this is one of the top levels in meditation where one gains the power of self-actualization or self-realization and is close yogic state of mind.

Let's discover ourselves...

Nice & interesting one. Self appraisal is a must to know the actual worth and to analyze scope of improvement.
