Two salesmen were sent to an African country by a shoe manufacturing company to scout new markets where they could sell their company shoes. The salesmen spent a couple of weeks there, then came back to report their findings to their manager.
The first salesman said, ‘There is no market in that country. I did not see anyone wearing shoes there.’
The second salesman said, ‘There is a huge market for shoes in that country. I did not see anyone wearing shoes there.’
Message: be optimistic and think positive.
