The Obstacle In Our Path

In  ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway.  Then he hid himself and watched to see if
anyone would remove  the huge rock.

Some of the King’s’ wealthiest merchants  and courtiers came  by and simply walked around  it…  Many loudly blamed the King  for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about  getting the stone out of the way.

Then a peasant came along  carrying a load of vegetables..  Upon  approaching the boulder, the
Peasant laid down his burden and  tried to move the stone to the side of the road.  After  much pushing
and straining, he finally succeeded.

After  the Peasant picked up his load  of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the  boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a  note from the King indicating that the gold was for  the person who removed the boulder from the  roadway.  The Peasant learned what many of us never  understand!

Every obstacle presents an opportunity to  improve our  condition.

When I was 10 years old  I had a teacher – Mr Davies – who taught us that there the word ‘can’t’ was not to be found in the English dictionary.

Whenever you are faced with an obstacle just remember that all obstacles are, in reality, a wonderful opportunity for you to prove how brave you are.

And braveness will lead you to even greater success

With many peaceful blessings
