Making a difference !
One day after a high tide lots of sea-stars were brought to the shore. They started drying up in the sun. A boy, walking down the shore started throwing the sea-stars into the sea, so that they could continue their lives.
A person came up to him and asked :
– Why are you doing this? Look around ! There are millions of sea-stars; the shore is covered with them. Your attempts won’t change anything !
The boy picked up the following sea-star, thought for a moment, threw it into the sea and said :
– No, my attempt will change a lot…for atleast this sea-star.
We always tend to think that nobody cares for what good I do and with sad feeling leave the good work we are doing.
No matter who cares or not, no matter who looks or not, one should pursue what good he is doing for his own happiness, though it be very small and unnoticeable.
A diamond in a shop and the one lying under the mountain rock, unseen and unexplored are of equal values.
Diamond has its own value despite of its location or visibility. It shines well in the shop and also it shines good under the mountain rock. The same way good work though it be small, unnoticed or unseen has its own value like diamond has its own !
