CHOICES

 

Once upon a time in a village somewhere, there lived a hardworking rich man. Many people envied him and resented his wealth. One day, he had a big rock placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove it.

 

Some well-to-do business people and some of his own employees came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the rich man for not keeping the road clear, but none did anything about getting the big stone out of the way.

 

Then a farmer came along carrying a load of vegetables. He stood for a while observing the rock in the road. Then he made a decision. He laid down his burden and attempted to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. As the farmer bent down to pick up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the rock had been. The purse contained a wad of money and a note from the rich man which said: This money is for the person who removed the big rock from the roadway.

 

The lesson? Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve one's condition.
