once upon a time there was a farmer and He had a horse. he loved his horse so much because it supports the farmer’s family. it was his pride and joy as it helps the farmer to earn money.
until one day the horse ran away. The community heard about it and all keep on saying
Oh my god! your favorite horse. whom you love so much but it ran away. That is so bad.
The farmer looks at them and he says
the very next day the horse came back but with four wild horses.
The community heard and they said
oh my god, we heard what happened, now you have 5 horses, what a bit of good luck, that is so good
And the farmer looks back at them and says
On the next day, the farmer’s son tries to train one of the wild horses. While in the training the horse kick him off and he broke his leg in three places.
when the news spread in the neighborhood, everyone visited the farmer and said.
Oh my god, these are the stupid horses, look what they did to your son. That is so bad.
And the farmer says
And a few days later, the military comes to the farm looking for the young men to draft to the army.
They give one look to the farmer’s son and said:
we can’t draft him, he has got a broken leg.
Everyone in the community congratulates the farmer that he had his young son with him.
oh my god, you have your son, our sons, they get drafted, you are so lucky, that is so good.
And the wise farmer still replied them the same
Moral of the story:
It is so easy to develop negative mindsets when something bad happens to us. But “Good” or “Bad” who knows. What is negative or positive? when you can’t see the full picture. Something Bad may be Good in the long run, who knows.
