There was an old farmer who always took the trophy in the fishing tournament with the biggest catch. The new game warden became suspicious and demanded the farmer take him fishing. In the middle of the lake, the farmer pulls out a stick of dynamite, lights it and throws it into the water. Boom! When hundreds of stunned fish float to the surface, the farmer takes out a net and snags the biggest one. The warden is outraged. “You can’t do that!” he screams, “Do you know how many laws you’ve broken?” Calmly, the farmer lights another stick of dynamite, hands it to the game warden and says, “Well boy, you gonna talk or you gonna fish?”
The challenge they face keeps them alive and fresh! Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired and dull? Basically in our lives, sharks are new challenges to keep us active. If you are steadily conquering challenges, you are happy. Your challenges keep you energized. Don’t create success and revel in it in a state of inertia. You have the resources, skills and abilities to make a difference. Put a shark in your tank and see how far you can really go.
There were seagulls flying as high as clouds and as low as waves.
The fish must have asked themselves how they managed to fly, those mysterious creatures who plunged into their world, and left as quickly as they entered.
The birds must have asked themselves how those creatures, they fed on and that lived beneth the waves, could possible manage to breath under water.
Birds existed and fish existed, but they could not answer each other’s questions. And yet both had questions, and the questions had answer.
