Lesson 7 : A Small Little Mouse Can Also Defeat the Elephant
一天，一只小老鼠遇到一只大象。大象看了小老鼠一眼，不屑地说：“你这没用的小东西。我一脚就能踩扁你！” 小老鼠听了很不服气，就向大象挑战：“我一定能赢你！” 大象听了，哈哈大笑！
One day, a little mouse met an elephant. The elephant looked down at the little mouse and teased, "What an useless little thing you are ! I can simply step on you and crush you into a pancake !" The little mouse was furious and challenged the elephant, "I can win you too ! " The elephant simply roared into laughter.
To prove its point, the little mouse racked its brain trying to find a certain way to win the elephant. A little while later, when the elephant was not paying attention, the little mouse quickly dashed into the nostril of the elephant, trying to stop it from breathing and subduing it. The elephant sneezed forcefully and sent the little mouse flying high into the sky. The little mouse fell heavily to the ground with a loud “thud”. Its body ached terribly and it experienced the seemingly undefeatable power of the elephant. The elephant walked away proudly with its head in the air.
The next day, the elephant accidentally fell into the giant net of the hunter. It struggled violently trying to escape but to no avail. The little mouse saw what happened and thought to itself,“What a good opportunity to seek revenge ! I can give this nasty elephant a big bite and let it experiencing my power !” Though the little mouse was eager to win the elephant, it felt sorry for the elephant. Finally, it decided to use its sharp teeth to bite through the net to rescue the elephant. After escaping from the giant net, the elephant made friends with the little mouse and said, "You've won!"
Just like the little mice, everyone has his/her worthiness. No matter what his/her social status or position in the organisation, everyone can make that little contribution. Do not underestimate yourself. Ordinary people can have their chance of success too !
