Someone emailed me the hilarious piece below, and I couldn’t resist turning it into a motivational article. Please read on and have a good laugh!

Johnny Says He’s Too Smart For First Grade. This Is The Principal’s Response.

A first-grade teacher was having trouble with one of her students. One day, she asked Johnny what his problem was; he replied, “I’m too smart for the first grade; my sister is in the third grade, and I’m smarter than her, too.” The teacher took him to the principal’s office and explained the situation to the principal.

The principal told her that he would give Johnny a test, and if he failed to answer one question, he would have to go back to the first grade and be quiet.

The teacher and Johnny both agreed.

Principal: “What is 3 x 3.”

Johnny: “9.”

Principal: “6 x 6.”

Johnny: “36”.

And so it went on like this: the principal asked him every question a third grader should know. Finally, after about an hour, he told the teacher, “I see no reason Johnny can’t go to the third grade; he answered all of my questions right.”

The teacher asked if she could ask him some questions. The principal and Johnny agree.

Teacher: “What does a cow have 4 of that I only have 2 of?

Johnny: “Legs”.

Teacher: “What do you have in your pants that I don’t have?” the principal gasps, but before he can stop him from answering, Johnny says, “Pockets.”

Teacher: “What does a dog do that a man steps into?”

Johnny: “Pants”

Teacher: “What starts with F and ends with K and means a lot of excitement?” the principal is now in panic mode!

Johnny: “Firetruck”

The principal sighs relief and says, “Put Johnny in the fifth grade; I got the last four questions wrong myself.

The story’s moral is that you must be bold and take charge of your life!

Note: this article may seem a little racy and doesn’t fit the corporate format, but I love bucking the status quo by making things fun and exciting.

Can you imagine what would have happened to Johnny if he stayed where he was?

Here’s a great saying I saw somewhere:

“If you don’t design your life plan,
chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan.
And guess what they have planned for you?
Not much.”

Many of you would like to take your business to the next level but are afraid to do so.

Don’t let fear rule your life because success might be approaching.

Stop standing on the sidelines of life, watching everybody pass you by. Get out there and start living because life is very short, my friends.

One of the worst things you can have in your life is regret. Wishing you could have done things differently when it’s too late.

Always remember, no matter how badly you screw up, tomorrow’s another day, so swing for the fences, baby!

Good luck,
