Some Inspiration from a Customer

Monday, September 15, 2014

I work in a call center and the other day I had a customer calling in to cancel his services. Part of my job is ask why the customer is cancelling and if the reason is due to the service we are providing.
My customer says I love your service but Unfortunately You can not provide it to where I am moving too!
I said oh ok where are you moving he said well I am due to retire and I have bought a house boat and that is where I will be moving to!!

I said to the fellow how wonderful I thought this was, he started to tell me a bit of a story he said yes well you see a year ago he said I had major Brain surgery and he said one day before my surgery I was on the ferry and picked up a magazine and said I read this advertisement about boats for sale.
He said I told myself that day if I survive this surgery I am going to buy that boat!!
He said a almost a year later I made the purchase now I am living my dream and I am retiring on that boat I bought!
I was dead silent for a few moments then I said to my customer I think this is just wonderful and congratulated him on his recovery as well as his retirement.

He said to me then you know he said any one can dream but he said if you just dream that is all it will ever be is just a dream. But he said if you Dream then act on the dream and remove what ever obstacles no matter how big they are you will live your dream!!

I went home that night I said to myself this man had the biggest obstacle in the way of his dream!!! Not knowing if he was going to be alive to live it
He found the courage and the strength to remove the biggest Obstacle anyone could ever imagine and he is living him Dream!

This really opened my heart and mind that day and I said to myself the obstacles in my way are much much smaller than this mans. I can remove those obstacles and I will live my Dream.

How about you?
