5 parables about success
1. Once the mouse noticed that the farm owner had set up a mousetrap. She told about this chicken, sheep and cow. But they all answered: “The mousetrap is your problem, it has nothing to do with us!”
A little later, a snake fell into the mousetrap - and bit the farmer's wife. Trying to heal her, his wife cooked chicken soup. Then they slaughtered a sheep to feed everyone who came to visit the sick. And, finally, they slaughtered a cow in order to adequately feed the guests at the funeral.
And all this time, the mouse watched what was happening through a hole in the wall and thought about things that have nothing to do with anyone!
Moral: If something does not concern you directly, do not think that something will not hit you on the head
2. The eagle sat in a tree, rested and did nothing.
The little rabbit saw the eagle and asked:
- “Can I sit too, like you, and do nothing?”
“Of course, why not,” he answered.
The rabbit sat under a tree and began to rest. Suddenly a fox appeared, grabbed a rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the story: to sit and do nothing, you have to sit very, very high.
3. On the farm sick horse.
“If he doesn't get up in the morning, I will put him to sleep.”
In the morning the horse did not get up. Nearby lay a ram:
- Well, let's get up or you'll die!
The horse got up.
- This is a miracle! It must be celebrated! On this occasion, we slaughter a ram!
Moral: Never get involved in your own business (but do not forget about the mousetrap story).
4. Three people rolled stones. One of them was asked: - What are you doing?
He wiped the sweat from his forehead and replied: - I am horny.
We approached the second and asked: - What are you doing?
He rolled up his sleeves and efficiently said: - I earn money.
They asked the third: - And what are you doing?
He looked up and said: - The temple system.
Moral of the story: life is filled with meaning only by one who pursues a great goal.
5. The taxi driver brings a famous millionaire in the city. He pays exactly on the counter.
- Yesterday I brought your son a lift, so he left me $ 100 for tea.
“So what do you want: his dad is a millionaire, and I am an orphan.”
Moral: only the one who earned his own money really knows the price for them.
