An old man was travelling in a bus with his 16 year old son. The son kept telling the father. ” Dad! Look! The trees are moving opposite direction!” The father will nod his head and smile.. The son again sees the clouds moving and changing position high in the sky and the son will tell his dad in amusement, ” Look dad! The clouds are moving with us!!!” The father nods his head every time with a smile on his face.
A couple sitting next to the father and son saw all this happenings and told the father. ” Old man, you should take your son to hospital and see a doctor. He is not ok”
The father with tears in his eyes told the couple, “You are right. Infact we just came from the doctor now. My son has been blind ever since he was born, today he got his eyesight back. He is so happy today he sees what he has ever wanted to see. Am so happy.”
The couple were ashamed when they heard that.
We should not judge others Just by their appearance and their habbits. Everyone is fighting his/her own battle. Just because someone is behaving differently from your expectations doesn’t give you the right to judge others.
A crocodile was basking in the sun and got very hungry. He saw a snail coming towards him from a far end on the river bank. He opened his mouth wide excitedly and waited for the snail crawl right into his mouth. He kept waiting for a long time but the snail was very very slow and it seemed to be taking years to reach where the croc was. The crocodile waited and waited untill he died of hunger. By the time the snail reached the croc, he was already dead and the snail just continued with its slow journey.
Most of us are like the croc, we see opportunities in our life but we dont go for it. We just sit back and wait for success to fall upon us out of the blue sky. The croc is fast and strong, instead of moving towards the snail, it chose to wait for the slow snail to come and in the process it ended up dead.
Dont wait for opportunities to come, you should create those opportunities yourself. If you keep waiting, opportunities will just pass by wothout you knowing.
