Your Attitude Contributes to Success

Friends this is a very interesting story of attitude which I am going to write. Please share with your friends if you like it.

There was a man called Hafiz a farmer from Africa who was happy and content. He was happy because he was content. He was content because he was happy. One day a wise man came to him and told him about the glory of diamonds and the power that goes along with them. The wise man said,” If you had a diamond the size of your thumb, you could buy your own city. If you had a diamond the size of your first, you could probably own your own country.” And then the wise man left. That night, Hafiz couldn’t sleep He was unhappy and discontented. He was unhappy because he was discontented and discontented because he was unhappy.

Next morning Hafiz made arrangements to sell his farm, took care of this family, and went off in search of diamonds. He looked all though Europe and couldn’t find any. By the time he got to Spain, he was emotionally, physically and financially depleted. He was disheartened that he committed suicide by throwing himself into Barcelona River.

Back home, the person who has bought the farm was watering the camels at the stram that ran through the property. Across the stream, the rays of the morning sun hit a stone and made it sparkle like a rainbow. He thought the stone would look good in his living room. He picked up the stone and put it on his mantle piece. That afternoon, the wise man came and saw the stone sparkling. He asked, “Is Hafiz back?” The new owner said, “No, why do you ask?” The wise man said,” Because that is a diamond. I recognize one when I see one.” The man said, “No, that’s just a stone I picked up from the stream. Come I’ll show you. There are more.” They went and picked some sample and sent them for analysis. Sure enough, the stones were diamonds. They found that the farm was indeed covered with acres of diamonds.

What is the moral of the story?

There are six morals:

  1. When our attitude is right, we release that we are all walking on acres and acres of diamonds. Opportunity is always under our feet. We don’t have to go anywhere. All we need to do is recognize it.
  2. The grass always looks greener on the other side.
  3. While we are eying the grass on the other side, there are others who are eying the grass on our side. They would be happy to trade places with us.
  4. People, who don’t know how to recognize opportunity, complain of noise when it knocks.
  5. Lost opportunities are easier recognized when they are leaving rather than when they are coming.
  6. Opportunity only knocks once. The next one may be better or worse, but never the same one. That is why it is so crucial to make the right decision at the right time. A right decision at the wrong time becomes a wrong decision.
