The little milkmaid

A little  girl was going to the market to sell some filtered cow milk she carried in a pail on her head for her mother.while going on the way she began calculating the extra gain she would get for herself from the milk she had barely sold and the things she would do with the money . "I'll buy some fowls from the poultry said she,"and they will lay eggs each morning, which I will sell to mom's friend.With the money that I get from the sale of these eggs I'll buy myself a beautiful attire and a pair of black sandals; and when I go to market, won't all the young men come up and speak to me? Even wakamma my former friend would be that jealous, this i know; but I don't care. I shall just look at her and toss my head like this. As she spoke she tossed her head back, the Pail fell off her head, and all the milk was spilt. So she had to cry back home and tell her mother what had occurred.

"Oh, my child," said the mother,

"how could you have been so foolish."

Moral:

Do not count your chickens yet while they are still in the egg.

The wise thirsty crow


on a hot sunny day, a thirsty crow flew all over the fields looking for water. For a long time, he could not find any. He felt very weak, almost lost all hope. Suddenly, he saw a water jug below the tree. He flew straight down to see if there was any water inside. Yes, he could see some water inside the jug!
The crow tried to push his head into the jug. Sadly, he found that the neck of the jug was too narrow. Then he tried to push the jug to tilt for the water to flow out but the jug was too heavy.
The crow thought hard for a while. Then looking around it, he saw some pebbles. he suddenly had a good idea. he started picking up the pebbles one by one, dropping each into the jug. As more and more pebbles filled the jug, the water level kept rising. Soon it was high enough for the crow to drink. His plan had worked!
Moral: Think and work hard,every lies in a problem.
You need to think well to get good result. there's no software for thinking

The Smuggler




A Tale from the Middle East
A clever smuggler came to the border with a donkey. The donkey's back was heavily laden with straw. The official at the border was suspicious and pulled apart the man's bundles till there was straw all around, but not a valuable thing in the straw was found. "But I'm certain you're smuggling something," the official said, as the man crossed the border.
Now each day for ten years the man came to the border with a donkey. Although the official searched and searched the straw bundles on the donkey's back, he never could find anything valuable hidden in them.
Many years later, after the official had retired, he happened to meet that same smuggler in a marketplace and said, "Please tell me, I beg you. Tell me, what were you smuggling? Tell me, if you can."
"Donkeys," said the smuggler.

The ingrate lizard tale

On a warm winter morning, two Lizards sat on a high wall of an old mill. They were enjoying the bright sunshine. One Lizard kept dreaming all the time and was unhappy. The other was older and wiser.
“How miserable is our situation!” cried the Unhappy Lizard. “No one notices us. We are small and have such dull lives. Look at the other bigger animals. They are so royal and majestic!” 
The Unhappy Lizard sighed, “I wish I was born a deer. To be quick and have great, big horns! And live proudly in the royal forest.”
At that very moment, a pack of dogs ran past, chasing a deer. The deer was tired and the hungry dogs pounced on it.
The Lizards watched in horror.
The Wise Lizard said to his complaining friend, “You wanted to be in place of this poor deer!”
“You should learn from what you just saw. You are not beautifully colored or quick on your feet. But, you are alive! Destiny is kind to you. You are small and safe from danger, unlike the bigger animals!”

Lesson

Be happy with what you are
 The best you can be is you
complaints complicate issues

The ugly duckling story

A little duckling was very sad because he thought he was the ugliest amongst all his brothers and sisters. They would not play with him and teased the poor ugly duckling. One day, he saw his reflection in the water and cried, “Nobody likes me. I am so ugly.” He decided to leave home and went far away into the woods.
Deep in the forest, he saw a cottage in which there lived an old woman, her hen, and her cat. The duckling stayed with them for some time but he was unhappy there and soon left. When winter set in the poor duckling almost froze to death. A peasant took him home to his wife and children. The poor duckling was terrified of the children and escaped. The ugly duckling spent the winter in a marshy pond.
Finally, spring arrived. One day, the duckling saw a beautiful swan swimming in the pond and fell in love with her. But then he remembered how everyone made fun of him and he bent his head down in shame. When he saw his own reflection in the water he was astonished. He was not an ugly duckling anymore, but a handsome young swan! Now, he knew why he had looked so different from his brothers and sisters. “They were ducklings but I was a baby swan!” he said to himself.
He married the beautiful swan and lived happily ever after.
 Morals
Better days are ahead.
life is not always rosy at every beginning.
it might not look like it but keep doing it.
he who laugh last always laugh best.

The hedgehog and the fox


Mr fox claim to know many things but the hedgehog knows one big thing. The fox is a cunning creature able to devise myriads of complex strategies for sneak attack upon the hedgehog. Day in day out the fox circles around the hedgehogs den waiting for the perfect moment to pounce on the innocent hedgehog.
Fast, sleek , beautiful, fleet of foot and crafty- the fox looks like the winner.
The hedgehog on the other hand is a dowdier creature, looking like a genetic porcupine and a small armadillo. He waddles along, going about his routinely day, searching for lunch and taking care of his home.

The fox wait patiently in cunning silence at the juncture in the trail to waylay, though pretending as if he is doing his own business. The hedgehog minding his own business, wanders right into the path of the fox.
“Aha I’ve got you now! Thinks the fox” he leaps out bounding across the ground, lighting fast. The little hedgehog sensing danger looks up and thinks, “here we go again. Will he ever learn?”Rolling up into a perfect little ball, the hedgehog becomes a  sphere of sharp spikes, pointing outward in all directions. The fox bounding towards his prey, sees the hedgehog defense and calls off the attack each day.

Despite the greater cunning of the fox, the hedgehog always wins.

Lessons and morals

Be focus. Don’t be like the fox who pursues many ends at the same time and see the world in all its complexity yet achieve very little. Sometimes its good you integrate your thinking into one overall concept. Be organized
One sure plan is better than a thousand options.

A story of a born sicklier



Anthony Burgess. At forty, was confirmed by his doctor that he has only one more year to live. Just one year . He had a brain tumor that would kill him within a year. He knew he had a battle at hand. He was completely broke at this time as he had nothing to leave behind for his unborn child and wife, soon to be a widow.

Burgess never in his life time thought he could be a professional novelist, but he always knew the potentials was inside him to become a writer.

So for the sole purpose of leaving a royalty behind for his family, he put a piece of paper into a typewriter and began writing. He had no certainty that it would even be publish before his time lapse on earth, but he couldn't think of anything else to do.

“It was January 1960” he said “and according to prognosis, I had a winter and spring and summer to live through and would die with the fail of the leaf”. In that time he wrote energetically, finishing five and a half novels before the year ran through.

But as God's wisdom will prove medical verdict wrong, Burgess did not die.(it wasn’t told how the miracle happened) His sickness has gone into remission and then disappeared altogether. In his long and full life as a novelist (he is best known for clockwork orange). He wrote more than 70 books, but without the death sentence from cancer he may not have written at all. Today he has properties worth millions of dollars!

Lessons:

Don’t be a victim of circumstance.

I reasoned that the trauma would have killed him quicker if he did not channel it to achieving success. Indeed he turned his pain to prosperity as he overlooked his ill condition (circumstance).


Man is a function of what he hears- the news you access is what defines the changes in your life. He is a function of what he thinks- as a man think, so he is. He is a function of what he believes- what you believe will influence how you behave.

Never allow your circumstance to limit you in any way. If you are limited in mind, you will be limited in life. I'm sure you must have heard about the millionaire without arms and the likes of others.
