The Broken Eggs!!
There used to be a small yet cute family in a village consisted of three people.. A mother, father and a sweet little boy. The mother was a home maker and also manages their small farm and they also had hen as pets. One of their primary sources of income is every day, the father tends to the needs of the hen and then collect eggs, go to the market, sell them and then make money. The money was apt for their family needs and everyone was happy. One day, the mother runs out of her house to the farm where the father was collecting eggs and she shouted, "listen to me darling, I just got a letter from my Mom's house. She is super sick..I need to go see her". The father replied, "that is such a bad news. But our little boy is very small to take him for night rides across villages and crossing outskirts and woods.. and I will be in fear if I send you alone.. I don't know what to do"
The little boy interfered and replied, "Dad.. Mom.. do not worry at all. I have all grown up now. I'm a big boy. I can take care of myself here alone. Just keep some food for me and you guys can leave". The father and mother laughed but the father was too worried to leave him. But he also could not see his wife's tears for her mother, so he talked to his neighbor to let the boy sleep in his house during nights and the boy can return to his house in the mornings. The neighbor accepted it and the parents left..but before leaving, the father told the boy, "Never lose your Conscious little man...and never imagine being successful without actually doing anything to attain the success. It will be a huge disappointment for you." ...
The boy was so excited to be alone in the house as it was his first time to be and he enjoyed roaming around the farm land and taking care of all the pets by himself. Next day, he woke up and immediately jumped out of his bed to run towards his chicken shed and he noticed a lot of new eggs.. He fed the hens as he collected all the eggs and he was excited to make money out of all those eggs but sadly, he did not know how to go to the market. So he decided to sell of those eggs to all his neighbors. He was glad when all his neighbors showed good interest in buying those eggs and he made a some money that he never seen before ever..The boy carefully put that few money in a small sack and kept it safe in the house.
It was the next day and the boy repeated the feeding and collecting egg process.. As he was collecting the eggs, he started dreaming of how much coins he is going to make that day and he started walking towards the neighbor houses as he spoke to himself as "I'm gonna sell all these eggs to my neighbors again today and with the coins collected today, I will have enough money to go to the new exhibition they opened, am gonna eat a lot of snacks, buy toys and play all the games in there. This is going to be the best day for me".. He was smiling as he walked dreaming of the exhibition when his leg tripped on the bunch of rocks. He fell down dropping all those eggs and breaking the entire basket of eggs on the ground.
The boy's dreams were shattered and he cried for the rest of the day as he remembered his father's advise "Never lose Consciousness and never imagine being successful without actually doing anything to attain the success. It will be a huge disappointment for you...."
That's all for today folks, the moral of this short little story told by my daughter to me is to always be at your conscious while taking decisions and never celebrate too early before achieving true success because life can knock us down any minute and if we are not ready, it will break us down.. Always be ready for the worst while hoping for the best :))
Thank you sponsors :)
I agree with you consciousness in the present is important, and yes don't be in a rush to celebrate until you're sure it's all been completed
