Always Follow Your Dreams
There were once 2 brothers who lived on the 80th level. On coming home one day, they realized to their dismay that the lifts were not working and that they have to climb the stairs to get home.
After struggling to the 20th level, panting and tired, they decided to abandon their bags and come back for them the next day. They left their bags there and climbed on. When they had struggled up to the 40th level, the younger brother started to grumble and both of them began to quarrel. They continued to climb the flights of steps, quarreling all the way to the 60th floor.
They then realized that they have only 20 levels more to climb and decided to stop quarreling and continue climbing in peace. They silently climbed on and reached their home at last. Each stood calmly before the door and waited for the other to open the door.
And then they realized that the key was in one of their bags which they had left on the 20th floor.
This story reflects on our life...many of us have to live up to the expectations of our parents, teachers and friends when young. We seldom get to do the things that we really love and are under so much pressure that by the age of 20, we get tired and decide to dump the load.
Being free of the stress and pressure, we work enthusiastically and dream big.
But by the time we reach 40, we start to losing our vision and dreams. We begin to feel unsatisfied and start to complain and criticize. We live life as a misery as we are never satisfied. Reaching 60, we realize that we have little time left to complain, and we begin to walk the final episode in peace and calmness.
We think that there is nothing left to disappoint us, only to realize that we cannot rest in peace because we have an unfulfilled dream ...... a dream that we abandoned 60 years ago.
So what is your dream? Follow your dreams, so that you will not live with regrets.
Because Life is a journey which is traveled only once...
