ATTIDUE TOWARDS LIFE
A professor started to address the class by holding a glass of water in his hand. He showed that glass to all students and asked, “ What could be the weight of this glass in your observation?”
“50 grams,.100 grams…….125 grams………” students replied differently.
“Till I don’t measure it I can not tell you the exact weight”, professor replied. “ But my question is, if I keep holding this for some minutes then what will happen?”
“Nothing”, the students said.
“Okay! If I hold it for an hour”, professor asked.
One student said, “ Your hand will start paining”.
“Very true, if I hold it for a day, then?”
“ Your hand will get jammed, muscles will get strained and it may also become functionless for some time. You may also need to consult the doctor”, one student replied.
“Very good, but tell me whether the weight of glass change during all this period?” The professor asked.
“No”, students replied.
Then why the muscles will feel the strain and hand will have the pain? What could be solution to it?”
Students began to think seriously and one of them replied, “ Put the glass down”.
“Correct” the professor replied. The problems in life are also similar. If you hold them for some time, it’s okay. If you will think about them for a long time, you may feel the headache. If you hold them further then it may make you so dependant that you may not be able to do anything else.
“Its important to think about the problem that you face in your life but it’s more important to have faith in God and leave your tensions before going to bed. Sleep peacefully and you will feel very fresh next day. You will be stronger to face any problem and challenge in your life.
