This is a story that I have just listened from the radio and I find it meaningful. So, I decide to share it with you.
Here it goes:
There was a young man who keep sighing and complaining about his poor life. He was wondering why he was so poor that he could not even afford to spend a day"s vacation by the seaside.
As he was complaining, an old man overheard him and tell him, â€œYoung man, what if I give you the riches you want in exchange for everything you want in your life?â€
The young man was overjoyed and said, â€œSure, why not? After all, I do not have much left with me. What would you want from me?â€
The old man began to make his offers, â€œWould you sell your left arm to me for $500k?â€
â€œNo, I won"tâ€
â€œHow about selling your right leg to me for one million dollar?â€
â€œNope, don"t even think about itâ€
â€œAll right, I want to buy your right eye with TWO MILLION dollarsâ€
With a frightening voice, the young man replied, â€œNO! You"re crazy!â€
The old man then laughed and said, â€œYoung man. You worth more than 3 Million dollars and yet you still say that you are poor.â€
The old man continued, â€œWith those hands, legs and eyes, you can earn billions of dollars in your life.â€
The young man just kept quiet and walked away with a precious lesson of his life.
The moral of the story is, you do not need all the riches in the world to be happy. There are just 2 things that you need to stay happy which are the attitude of gratitude and confidence.
