The wood cutter…!

Once upon a time  a very strong woodcutter asked a job in a timber merchant and got it. the pay was really good and so was the work condition . for those reason, the woodcutter was determined to do this his best.

  His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he supposed to work.

“congratulation” boss said. “go on that way”.

Very motivated by the boss words, the woodcutter tried harder than the next day., but he could only bring 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he could only bring 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.

“ I must be loosing my strength” , the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he couldn’t understand what he was going on.

“ when was the last time you sharpened your axe?” boss asked.

“sharpened ? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut tree.





Our lives are like that. we sometime get too busy that we don’t take time to sharpen the “axe”. In today’s words it seems everyone is busier than ever, but less happy than ever.

 We shouldn’t be so busy we neglect the truly important things in life, like our personal life, taking time to get close to our creator, giving more time for our family, taking time to react etc. we all need time to relax, to think and meditate, to learn and grow. If we don’t take time to sharpen athe “axe”, we will become dull and lose our effectiveness.

once upon a time, there was a farmer who had horse and goat in his farm. one day horse became sick. he called the veterinarian. veterinarian came and checked up the horse and said to the farmer ” well, your horse is suffering from some sort of  virus. i will give you medicine for him, let him have it. ok. i will come back after four-day. if he don’t get cure then there is no way than finishing him.”                         

after farmer and veterinarian left goat came to horse who was listening all conversation, from nearby. and said ” hey friend be strong, and get well soon or else they are going to have to put you down.” 

next day farmer came and gave the medicine.

another next day he was same. nothing improved.

farmer was sad to see him still sick on 3rd day as well. and he gave medicine and left.

goat, was also worrying about the situation of horse. he cam and said again ” hey, c’mon horse get well soon, don’t be like that other wise  you will die.”

on fourth day farmer came with veterinarian. saw the same tragic condition of the horse. both of them were sad. veterinarian said ” unfortunately we have to put him down. otherwise virus will be spread to other animals as well. we will do that tomorrow.”

they left. goat came nearby to horse and said ” hey, pal, it’s now or never, c’mon, lets get up. you are gonna die. have courage. c’mon , just walk with me. yes, yes, that’s good. c’mon. here you go. now lets run with me …one , two , three….good, good, you are doing good. gonna catch me. yes, yes….!!!”

all of sudden, owner came back to the farm. he saw his horse running in the field. he jumped in joy and shouted “oh, it’s really a miracle. my horse get cured. there must be grand party. lets kill goat.” 

Moral Of The Story:

“eyes all we have is those which merely sees how good somebody or something is. but never sees the things (cause) behind, which made it so good.”

only adoring and being impressed with dazzling facade of someone’s success/achievement is unjust, to those who are the cause behind it, and who really deserves thumbs up.

The Cracked Pot


(copied story)  

A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it,images (76) and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master’s house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.

But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do. After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream.

“I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you.”

“Why?” asked the bearer. “What are you ashamed of?”

“I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your mimages (75)aster’s house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value from your efforts,” the pot said.

The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion he said, “As we return to the master’s house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path.”

Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path, and this cheered it some. But at the end of the trail, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half its load, and so again the pot apologized to the bearer for its failure.

The bearer said to the pot, “Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of your path, but not on the other pot’s side? That’s because I have always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the stream, you’ve watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master’s table. Without you being just the way you are, he would not have this beauty to grace his house.”


Do not underestimate yourself by comparing yourself with others. It’s our differences that make us unique & Beautiful
