First of all, thank you for all the comments I received in my featured story of the Next CEO yesterday. Some left comments through my email and I was happy that a lot of my readers really liked the story showcasing that honesty is the best policy.
Today, I will feature another story again which involves Pablo and Bruno. Again, some of you may have watched this story before. I personally had my first glance at this video when I attended one of the seminars of a networking company before.

The story of Pablo and Bruno in the “Parable of Pipelines” showcases the difference between employee vs. entrepreneur. Bruno, used all his might to carry buckets per day. He did not believe on the proposal of Pablo who invested money, time and effort to achieve his dreams on building pipelines.
As time passed by, Pablo’s pipelines grew longer and longer until it was finally completed while Bruno was doomed to carry buckets day in and day out for the rest of his life.
Building pipelines is full of twists, turns, obstacles, detours and challenges. You must be focused on what you want, invest time and effort, willingness to take risk, the desire to learn and do whatever it takes to reach your dreams as tomorrow’s dreams are built on today’s sacrifices.
Your pipelines are your lifelines. How about you, are you carrying buckets or building your pipelines? Are you Bruno or Pablo?
