The Strength & Success VLOG #96
I want to share a Chinese proverb:
A Chinese farmer one day finds that his horse has bolted and everyone in the village comes up to him and says, that’s terrible isn’t it? He says: “maybe” the next day the horse will return with more horses!
The next day his son is trying to tame the horses and he falls off breaks his back. Everybody in the village comes around and says, oh my god, that’s terrible, isn’t it? He says “maybe”
The day after that, the Army come to recruit all the young men who are fit and able and they bypassed his son and get everybody else. Everybody in the village turns around and says what a stroke of luck and the guy again, says “maybe”.
What is the message here?
Whatever suffering you’re in, try and find the lesson and the person you’ll be on the other side is a better version that than you are now.
There is only pleasure when we have pain.
