Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude ~Thomas Jefferson
Once an unhappy young man came to an old master & told him that he was very sad in his life & asked him for a solution.
The old Master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and then drink it.
How does it taste? the Master asked.
Awful, said the young man.
The Master then asked the young man to take another handful of salt and put it into the lake.
The young man put handful of salt into the lake,the old man said,
Now drink from the lake.
As the water dripped down the young mans chin, the Master asked,
How does it taste? Good! remarked the young man.
Do you taste the salt? asked the Master. No, said the young man.
The Master sat beside this troubled young man, took his hands, and said,
“The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain
in life remains the same, exactly the same. But the amount we taste the pain depends on the container we put it into. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things and
Stop being a glass and Become a lake.”
Broader Mindset will solve most of the problems we face in Life.
Don’t allow problem to grow broader than your mind.
Expand your thinking and don’t focus so much on the problem. Focus instead on ways to solve the obstacle. It can always be done. When you rub salt on an open wound it always burns doesn’t it? So add more water (ideas) to your thoughts and you will overcome it all! Maybe not right away but you will.
