Rudolph, the reindeer had a shiny, red nose, it was bullied by the other reindeers. So, it began to gradually lose its confidence and just continued working, pulling a sled even though it felt very sad.
One day, Santa Claus and his reindeers were at a loss in the darkness on their way to deliver some presents to children from all over the world. They didn’t know where to go.
But, Rudolph’s red nose was shining, so it could guide the path!
Then, Santa said to Rudolph, “Your nose is really different from the others, but that’s what makes you special. Thanks to your shiny nose which lit up the dark sky, our delivery was a success. It helped a lot!”
That night, the other reindeers realised the impact of Rudolph’s shiny red nose. They all cheered
“Rudolph, you! You are really great!” and they began to respect Rudolph and his shiny red nose.
At first, the red-nosed reindeer hated it’s own red nose. Rudolph had always had a huge inferiority complex about it. After the delivery that was only successful due to it’s shiny red nose. Rudolph realised that it was in fact a blessing to have such a unique nose. So, Rudolph began to appreciate its own nose.
As a result, Rudolph began to work happily and filled with confidence.
I think, this can be applied to us, humans. We might have some personalities or behaviors which are teased by people. But these personalities or behaviors might come in handy, providing help in unimaginable ways.
Everyone is different. We shouldn’t laugh at others because of their uniqueness. It is what sets us apart from the rest.
That’s why, we need not feel inferior to anybody else or have a complex about the features or traits we have.
In addition. I think, Santa Claus is a fantastic boss. Because, he understood what happened among the reindeers, and he changed the red-nosed reindeer inferiority into superiority to the point of solving the bullying problem.
Santa helped all of the reindeer’s become better. He encouraged Rudolph to be confident about his nose and he taught the other reindeer’s they should accept everybody’s differences. He is worth emulating. I think every boss in human society should be like that.
