What Makes a Person Rich?
One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the
country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people live.
They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be
considered a very poor family.
On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the
trip?" "It was great, Dad."
"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked. "Oh yeah," said the
son. "So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.
The son answered:
"I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches
to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have
imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our
patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.
We have a small piece of land to l ive on and they have fields that go
beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We
buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to
protect us, they have friends to protect them."
The boy's father was speechless. Then his son added, "Thanks, Dad, for
showing me how poor we are.
"Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen
if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about
what we don't have. Appreciate every single thing you have, especially
your loved ones in the family and "TRUE GOOD FRIENDS"!
Please pass this page on to friends and acquaintances to help them refresh
their perspective and appreciation.
"Life is too short and good friends are too few".
"To accomplish great things, we must not only ACT, but also DREAM; not only
PLAN, but also BELIEVE."
