There’s a story that’s going around about the janitor at Carnegie Hall who had been there for 20 years. He’s 45 years old. He was cleaning up the restroom, and a guy in a business suit went up to him and said, ‘You seem to be an intelligent fellow. For 20 years you’ve been cleaning the toilets. Why don’t you do something with your life and get another job?’ And the janitor said, ‘What? And leave show business?’
It’s all in how we view the situation and perceive what we’re doing that determines our satisfaction and fulfillment on the job.
