A Small But Self-Explanatory Story
Once upon a time, there was somewhere buried the biggest treasure on the planet earth. The treasure was of such a rarity, that its monetary value was uncountable.
Once one guy after travelling the world for 10 years in search for the treasure, had finally found it (he thought). The treasure was secretly placed on an island in the ocean.
This mysterious guy started digging for weeks and weeks and no treasure was coming on the surface. He eventually gave up and went back home. He told one friend about his adventure.
Curious and thoughtful as his friend was, he decided to not tell anyone and go to the island. He believed in long term goals and knew that PERHAPS his friend didn’t try as much as he needed to.
When he arrived at the spot, he only needed one more dig for the treasure to appear. Is that unfair? No! He believed and knew the power of long term goals. After that, he went on to pursue one of his dreams, sure to be accomplished through a lifetime of happiness and pleasure along with his treasure.
