Secret of Success-Identifying the Problem Area

This story was shared by my work mate. I loved the story and wanted to share it with you all. The reason is simple, the story conveys a very strong message in a simple and humourous way.I am sure most of you would love the story too. Please read the story.
A man feared his wife wasn't hearing as well as she used to and he thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approachher, he called the family Doctor to discuss the problem. The Doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the Doctor a better idea about her hearing loss. Here's what you do,"said the Doctor, "stand about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response." That evening,the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den. He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away; let's see what happens." then in a normal tone he asks, 'Honey, what's for dinner?" No response. Sothe husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife andrepeats, "Honey, what's for dinner?" Still no response. Next he movesinto the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks,Honey, what's for dinner?" Again he gets no response so; He walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. "Honey, what's for dinner?" Againthere is no response. So he walks right up behind her." Honey, what'sfor dinner?" ;;;;"James, for the FIFTH time I've said, CHICKEN!"

Moral of the story: The problem may not be with others as we alwaysthink! It could be very much within us..!!
