I saw this inspiring story and thought it wise sharing as we advance through the storms and tides that besets us in the course of our daily routines.
On that day, all was set, all the “able-bodied” young men came out. Some came with paper and biro and others with cutlasses and swords.
The rich man took them to his swimming pool and addressed the men:
“Any of you who can swim from one end of this swimming pool to the other would marry my daughter.
In addition, I’ll give him 15 million dollars, a car and a house so they can start life well. I shall be waiting to meet my Son-in-law at the other end. Good luck!”
As the young men, all very excited at the prospect of winning, started taking off their shirts, a helicopter came over the pool and dropped alligators and crocodiles into the pool. Immediately, all the men turned back and started wearing their shirts again.
Disappointed, some of them said,
”That’s crazy, let’s see who would marry that girl, no one will.”
All of a sudden, they heard a splash in the pool. Everybody watched in amazement as one gentleman waddled across, expertly avoiding the alligators and crocodiles.
Finally, he made it to the other side. The rich man could not believe it. He asked the young man to name anything he wanted but the man was still panting uncontrollably.
Finally, he got back to his senses and made a request saying,
“SHOW ME THE PERSON WHO PUSHED ME INSIDE THIS POOL!”
You don’t know what you are capable of doing until you are PUSHED! Meanwhile, the Crocodiles were Rubber Crocodiles.
Those seeking to push you into the jaws of alligators and crocodiles may have helped you to reach your promised land!!!
So what are you waiting for?
You’ll make it!
