When a person leaves a school or a job for another school or job, he should keep in mind what he is grateful for. Even if he feels he is benefiting more from his new school or new job, he should remember what he gained in the past from the previous places.
There are many reasons why a person might have been dissatisfied at a previous place where he was. Nevertheless, he still gained and benefited from the people of that place. It's easy for many people to remember the negative aspects of previous places, especially if a person left on not such friendly terms. They might want to throw verbal stones at the prior school or job. Our debt of gratitude tells us not only not to speak against that place, but to say or do things that are an expression of gratitude.
Look at the previous place with a good eye. When you speak about it, begin your sentences with, "I am grateful to them for…" When you do so, you are expressing your own positive character.
speaking of jobs here is a job story
Dog Gone It
Moishe Epstein the accountant was looking for office help. He put a sign in the window, stating the following: "HELP WANTED. Must be able to type, must be good with a computer and must be bilingual. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer."
A short time afterwords, a dog trotted up to the window, saw the sign and went inside. He looked at the receptionist and wagged his tail, then walked over to the sign, looked at it and whined. Getting the idea, the receptionist got Epstein. Epstein looked at the dog and was surprised, to say the least. However, the dog looked determined, so he lead him into the office.
Inside, the dog jumped up on the chair and stared at Epstein. Epstein said "I can't hire you. The sign says you have to be able to type."
The dog jumped down, went to the typewriter and proceeded to type out a perfect letter. He took out the page and trotted over to Epstein and gave it to him, then jumped back on the chair.
Epstein was stunned, but then told the dog "the sign says you have to be good with a computer." The dog jumped down again and went to the computer. The dog proceeded to enter and execute a perfect program that worked flawlessly the first time.
By this time Epstein was totally dumb-founded! He looked at the dog and said "I realize that you are a very intelligent dog and have some interesting abilities. However, I still can't give you the job." The dog jumped down and went to a copy of the sign and put his paw on the sentences that told about being an Equal Opportunity Employer. Epstein said "yes, but the sign also says that you have to be bilingual."The dog looked at Epstein calmly and said, "Meow!
