I really wanted to share this story with you all which I listened on youtube and instead of sharing the link, I feel, you all must have a read as most of us know the magic of reading. The story can make a difference in your life and can change your perspective towards your ownself.
One day a young boy asked his father, what is the value of his life. Instead of answering, the father told him….“take this rock and go sell it at the market, if anybody asks the price, raise two fingers and don’t say anything.”
….The boy then went to the market and a woman asked, “how much is this rock? I want to put it in my garden. The boy didn’t said anything and raised up two fingers and the woman said, ” 2 dollars? I will take it!”
….The boy went home and told his father that a woman wants to buy this rock for two dollars!
….The father then said,” son! I want you to take this rock to a museum, if anybody wants to buy it, don’t say a word and just put up two fingers.”
…..The boy then went to a museum and the man wanted to buy the rock. The boy didn’t said anything and put up two fingers and the man said, 200 dollars? I’ll take it!
….The boy was shocked and went running home…“father, a man wants to buy this rock for 200 dollars!
…His father then said: Son, the last place I want you to take this rock is to a precious stone store. Show it to the owner and don’t say a word and if he asks the price…just put up 2 fingers.
….the son then went to the store, showed the rock to the owner….where did you find this stone?? It is one of the rarest stone of the world, I must have it! How much would you sell it for?”
….the boy put up 2 fingers and the man said: I’ll take it for 200 000 dollars!
…the boy not knowing what to say ran home to his father…father, there’s a man who wants to buy the rock for 200 000 dollars!
…the father then said…son, do you know the value of your life now? You see…it doesn’t matter where you come from, where you were born into, it matters where you decide to place yourself, the people you surround yourself with and how you choose to carry yourself.
You may have lived your whole life thinking you were a 2 dollar stone, but everybody has a diamond inside them and we can choose to surround ourselves with people that see our value and see our diamond inside of us!
You can choose to put yourselves
In a market
In a precious stone store!
And you can also help other people see the diamond inside of them.
Choose the people you surround yourself wisely that can make the difference in your life
Thanks for reading!
