In my first job, I was a garbage man, or more appropriately a Garbage-Boy. My job was to take out the garbage. A task assigned to me because none of my brothers and sisters wanted to do it. I enjoyed being a Garbage-Boy, because it made me feel needed and gave me a sense of purpose. My older brothers were also kind enough to let me take over the job of mowing the lawn. So naturally I became a Lawnmower-Boy. A job I dearly loved.
It was at this time that I got my first taste of helping people. I joined the Cub Scouts and had the opportunity to help a few old ladies cross the street. So, I think it’s safe to say, I was also a Cub-Scout-Boy.
In my next job, I was a Shoeshine-Boy. My father was in the restaurant business and had a magazine shop with a shoeshine stand adjacent to his restaurant. I loved shining shoes and was very good at it.
I moved on to becoming a Peanut-Salesman-Boy at the local college football games. But I must admit I was not crazy about being a Peanut-Salesman-Boy because I never really got to watch the games.
When the weather got much colder, I was doing such a great job of selling peanuts that I was promoted to the position of selling hot chocolate. I loved being a Hot-Chocolate-Salesman-Boy until I got fired for spilling a tray of hot chocolate over several very unfriendly, home team fans. Suddenly, I was an Unemployed–Hot-Chocolate-Salesman-Boy with a small chance of ever getting my job back.
After a couple of weeks of being unemployed, the gentleman my Dad hired to wash dishes and mop floors got tired of washing dishes and mopping floors and walked off the job. “Lucky for me!” That was the day my dual career as a Dish-Washer-Boy and Floor-Mopper-Boy in my father’s restaurant began. I will always be thankful to that gentleman for walking off the job, and most of all to my Dad, for providing me with the wonderful opportunity to wash dishes and mop floors. My dear sweet Dad told me the job of being a Dish-Washer-Boy and Floor-Mopper-Boywould teach me humility and cleanliness and bring me closer to my Loving God. And if I put my heart into it, this would be a valuable lesson which would build character and a “Positive Attitude“.
My dear sweet Dad went on to tell me(with God’s Help) and a “Positive Attitude“ I could do my part to make this world a better place to live in!And best of all (with God’s Help) and my “Positive Attitude” I could go out and help other people have a “Positive Attitude” and go out and make this world a better place to live in!
P.S. I hope my “My Resume” helps You feel good about Yourself, not take Yourself too seriously, and have a “Good Positive Attitude“, so You can create “Your Own Fantastic Resume“ and (with God’s Help) we can all go out and help each other make this world a better place to live in!
Attitude Is Everything!
“TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART
AND LEAN NOT TO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING
IN ALL YOUR WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM
AND HE SHALL DIRECT YOUR PATHS”
