This Story Will Change Your Perspective FOREVER!

THIS STORY WILL CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE FOREVER!

Here’s the story:

There was a old man and his son living in a beautiful valley.

They were poor but they were happy.

One day,

The old man decided to become rich by breeding Horses.

So he bought a stallion by borrowing money from his neighbours.

The very night he got the stallion, it kicked the top bar loose from the paddock and ran away.

And the next day the neighbors came around commiserating the old man and his son and said,

‘You thought you were going to become rich but your stallion ran away and you still owe us money. You are screwed.’

The old man shrugged his shoulders and said,

“Good thing bad thing, who knows?”

That stallion fell in with a group of wild horses and they were close to where the man lived and he was able to lure them into the paddock which he had repaired, so escape was no longer possible.

So now he had the stallion back and a dozen wild horses which by the standards of that village made him a wealthy man.

And the neighbors came around, saying

‘We thought that you were screwed but fortune has smiled upon you. How fortunate you are!’

The old man shrugged his shoulders and said,

“Good thing bad thing, who knows?”

The man and his son decided to break the horses so they could sell them on the market.

But,

One of the horses threw man’s son and stomped on his leg, it broke and healed crooked.

And the neighbors came around, saying

‘He was such a fine young man but now he’ll never be able to find a girl to marry him. How terrible!’

The old man shrugged his shoulders and said,

“Good thing bad thing, who knows?”

The King declared war on the neighbouring country and ordered to gather up all the young people in the village who are able to fight.

The man’s son was not chosen because of his crooked leg.

And the neighbors came around with tears in their eyes, saying

‘We don’t know if we’ll ever see our sons but you still have your son. How fortunate you are!’

The old man shrugged his shoulders and said,

“Good thing bad thing, who knows?”

And it goes on like that forever!!!

There’s a lesson in this story.

Can you think of anything that happened in your life terrible at the time it happened but now you look back upon it and say ‘OMG! It was actually pretty good!’?

(Let me know in the comments below)

So,

If something happened to us in the past, that at the time it happened we thought it was terrible but now we look back and say it was actually pretty good,

Why are we in a hurry to label anything that happens now bad?

Is there any possible way that whatever's happening now can turn out to be good?

Just pausing to consider this question will take you to the different emotional state regardless of your current situation.

Is there anything you can do to make whatever's happening now, Good?

Now you get into the realm of possibilities and the courses of action will open up to you, that you’d never would’ve considered before!

Key takeaway:

We have an unfortunate habit of sticking labels on things. Any event that happens in our Life, we immediately decide.

This is good, or this is bad. It does a tremendous amount of damage to us whether we realize or not.

Is there any possible way that whatever’s happening now can turn out to be Good?

Just pausing to consider this question will take you to the different emotional state regardless of your current situation.

Is there anything you can do to make whatever’s happening now, Good?

By asking this question you’ll get into the realm of possibilities and the courses of action that you’d never would’ve considered before will open up to you!

I hope this story sparked something in you. If so please share with others.
