You are what you have chosen to be, you will what you choose to be...
It was a calm evening in the Palace, the environment was dull and the clouds of anxiety hooded King's head. King standing in balcony of his Palace was exploring his kingdom. He saw people struggling a lot to earn their livelihood, few were fighting for food, and few were cutting wood. Some were begging for their stomach and some working hard for money.
King saw none, happy in his Kingdom.
"Shame on thou O' King of this Kingdom where people are not happy !", feelings of disdain grappled King's mind.
"What's the use of mine being wealthy if I can't make my people happy ?" and King thought to distribute his wealth amongst his countrymen.
King ordered his prime Minister to make an announcement in his Kingdom, "Touch any ONE THING in his kingdom and take it away for free."
All people gathered in an open ground early in the next morning to listen to the announcement made by King.
Minister announced - "Listen carefully O' poor CountryMen - Touch any ONE THING in our kingdom, make it your own and take it to your home."
People ran madly to touch the costliest thing they can. Some touched Golden throne of king, some touched King's horse, some touched sacks of grains for food, some touched his weapons. Some were running to touch King's treasure kept in locker and some to touch his crown jeweled with world's rare diamonds. Some touched his farms, some his animals.
King was happily watching people running here and there from the balcony of his Palace. People tried to touch the most costliest and useful thing they could touch on that day. People took away with them, the ONE THING they touched.
King's treasure was endless. You cannot empty an Ocean with even millions of tankers taken away from it !
One small girl came smiling to the balcony of Palace where King stood to watch people. She ran towards King and touched him.
Oh My God ! And King was no more his own property but her's. Everything that belonged to King was now her belongings.
She choosed the ONE THING(King) and she got EVERYTHING !
When others were striving to choose a PART, she thought of choosing the WHOLE, an endless treasure.
As life is full of choices, choose it WISELY. Everything you do is a choice, the thoughts you think, the words you say.
And if you say - "But my life is not made up by my choices, it is of what my parents, my friends, my boss, my collegues has choosen for me. I do most of the things by force and not by my choice."
Then I must say to you - "You are not strong enough mentally to make your choices. Why are you so weak ? Because you have done nothing to make yourself strong."
It is well said by Swami Vivekananda - "Strength is life and weakness is death."
Strenght comes from setting higher aims and determinations in life.
The higher the aim you set in life the greater the strength you get in life.
You don't have to choose EVERYTHING that is best for you, rather choose the ONE THING that will make EVERYTHING best for you !
Find your ONE THING and live for it to make your EVERTHING !
