I have written touching stories about life lesson. I wrote in this story that our life is like a race in which we think only about ourselves. We move ahead by blinding others’ troubles.
LIFE IS A RACE
Once upon a time, there was a young athletic boy who was hungry for success. For whom winning was everything and success was measured just by winning.
One day the boy was preparing himself for a running competition in his small village himself and two other young boys to compete.
A large crowd had gathered to witness the sporting spectacle and a wise man upon hearing of the little boy had travelled far to bear witness also.
The race was started and sure enough, the little boy came through and finished first once again. The crowd was ecstatic again and cheered and waved at the boy.
The wise man remained still and calm again expressing no sentiment. The little boy however felt proud and important. “another race, another race!” pleaded the little boy. YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE Real life inspiring stories that touched heart.
The wise old man stepped forward and presented the little boy with two new challengers, an elderly frail lady, and a blind man.
“What is this?” asked the little boy. “this is no race” he exclaimed. “race!” said the wise man. The race was started and the boy was the only finisher the other two challengers left standing at the starting line. The little boy was ecstatic he raised his arms in delight.
A touching story about a life lesson
The crowd however were silent showing no sentiment toward the little boy. “what has happened? Why not do the people join in my success?” he asked the wise old man.” race again” replied the wise man. “this time all three of you finish together, finish together continued the wise man.
The little boy thought he would stand in the middle of the blind man and the frail old lady and then took the two challengers by the hand. The race began and the little boy walked slowly ever so slowly to the finishing line and crossed it.
The crowd was ecstatic and waved at the boy. The wise man smiled gently nodding his head.
The wise man smiled gently nodding his head. The little boy felt proud and important. “old man, I understand not! Who is the crowd cheering for? Which one of us three? Asked the little boy.
The wise old man looked into the little boy’s eyes and placing his hand on the boy’s shoulders and replied softly “little boy for this race you have won much more than in any race you have ever run before and for this race the crowd cheer not for any winner!”
You think like this little boy in this race of our life. You just want to become a successful person. You don’t think that who are you running against and if you always win against everybody?
Then the people will stop cheering for you. At the end of your life if you look back. The question is: who was running next to you in this race? If they are weak and helpless, then help them in this difficult race of life and finish this race together.
This will be the best race of your life that you will win. So run! This race is called life.
In this race of life, we should always stay together and face all difficulties together. This life for an alone person would become very difficult and dangerous, which is very difficult to overcome alone.
STAY TOGETHER FACE TOGETHER.
