What Heaven and Hell are like?

An Angel was having a conversation with the Lord 
One day and said, "Lord, I would like to know 
what Heaven and Hell are like?"

The Lord sent the Angel to two doors. The Angel 
opened one of the doors and looked in. 
In the middle of the room was a large round table. 
In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew 
which smelled delicious and made the Angel's mouth water.

The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. 
They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons 
with very long handles that were strapped to their arms 
and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew 
and take a spoonful, but because the handle was longer than 
their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths.

The Angel shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering.
The Lord said, "You have seen Hell. Now go to the next door."
The Angel went to the next room and opened the door. 
It was exactly the same as the first one. There was 
the large round table with the large pot of stew which made 
the Angel's mouth water. The people were equipped with 
the same long handled spoons, but here the people were 
well nourished and plump, laughing and talking.

The Angel said, "I don't understand.""It is simple" said the Lord, 
"it requires but one skill. You see, they have learned to share 
by feeding each other, while the greedy think only of themselves."

Moral of the story: Its people's attitude that makes our place of work, 
a hell or heaven! 'Help and Seek Help' this makes all the difference 
to each individual's life and makes our lives hell or heaven. 
Success and happiness is all about effective team-work 
make it a great place to work.
