“What a Story!” – M. Ganesh Sai

Once there was family with four people, parents and two children’s. The children’s names were Suzaku and Mike. They both had an age difference of one year, but still most of the people say that they were like twins. Their parents gave the best to both of them, unfortunately Mike was not mature neither intelligent. Whereas, Suzaku was intelligent, had skills to control or to solve anything which was in his way. Mike most of the times used to get scoldings and beatings from his father for not scoring marks in exam, not doing work properly and for not listening and day dreaming.

 

After 20 years when Mike joined graduation, his father said to him, “Leave the past, and be in present to gain better future.” Continued, “I don’t want you to get backlogs. Clear everything at first attempt.”

“Sure! I’ll do it father.” Mike said and started to his college. Has the first year ended Mike cleared all the subjects. At that time, his father said, “That’s good. Try to get good percentage next time.”

“I’ll do my best, father.” Mike said and went off.

 

When Mike entered 2nd year of graduation, his brother Susaku came to 1st year of graduation in a top institute. From the 2nd year onwards it was like semester based. By end of the 1st semester Mike had failed all the subjects. His mother was sad to know the result and his father got boiled and started to shout at him. He was upset with what had happen, but no one was bordered about it. Everyone thought that, Mike was not feeling bad at all for what he got. Mike was internally felt the hell and showed in his words and face that he was in heaven.

 

A year passed, Mike got mad and wanted to leave studies, parents and his own life, but couldn’t do that. Mike had two drawbacks to do such a stupid thing. 1st reason was that, he loved his mother and wanted to make her happy. He decided not to bring sadness in his mother face by committing suicide. 2nd reason was his two best friends. They always supported him with everything they had and decided not to break the bond by killing himself.

 

Mike’s father got strict and most of the times started to shout at him, asks him every second what he was doing? Why he was doing? What’s the use in doing those things? Mike gave responses nicely with patience that one day father will understand what’s my true pain. At the end of his graduation 3rd year he had cleared almost all the subjects and part of the subject which he had lost in 2nd year were left off. Mike lost hope and patience that his father will not understand him on education areas. Apart from education and general things his father loves him and his brother Susaku equally.

 

“Mike!” Father called

“Yes, Father.” Mike responded.

“Come here.” Father continued, “What are you doing?”

“Nothing father.” Mike continued, “I was searching for projects.”

“What projects?” Father responded.

“At 4th year projects are there. There are two types, mini and major project.” Mike responded.

“Use your time productively. Don’t waste it for single second.” Father continued, “I don’t know you are doing project or something else. Show me what you are doing?”

“Okay father.” I really got annoyed with that response but I kept quit and responded.

 

Father said to mike, “What you were doing all this time was this simple thing. For that you’ve wasted you time.”

“What can I do? I don’t have knowledge like anyone else. With what I’ve I did it.” Mike responded in the same tone has his father.

“Why are you shouting? Are thing you are smart. Be in your limits. You have to complete your graduation and get of this house.” Father responded.

“Okay. I’ll go away.” Mike responded and stopped talking.

 

By listening those words from his father his heart was broken. He always thought that one day his father will talk in the same manner has he talks with Susaku, but mike lost hope. He had left his entire dreams. Completed his graduation and went on a job to work like a machine. He was not interested to have any feelings and controlled his emotions too.

 

The moral of the story is that, for everything there will be a limit. If that limit crosses between parents and children, boy friend and girl friend, husband and wife that’s it. The heart breaking, miserable life, conflicts and many more will happen. Be at your limit to make your loved ones normal, instead of mad. Love your loved ones, but don’t compare them with anyone.

“Do Something” – M. Ganesh Sai

Once upon a time there was a girl-Richa. She used to go to walk everyday to the park which was near to her residency. One fine day a old man asked her, “I’m watching you for the past six months. Most of the people I saw they give up when they lose weight or when they gain stamina, but you are perfectly fine. Then why you are still coming everyday alone go for a walk?”

“Actually, I never liked to walk until something happened in my life. That’s why I don’t mind if I’m slim or gaining stamina. I just walk.” Richa explained to an old man.

“You’re so young to get into any problems. May I know the reason for your struggle?” Old man asked with curiosity.

“First of all I never felt struggle by walking, but I gain silence and strategy. And you can know the reason.” Richa said with joy and started to recollect the reason.

 

Richa said to the old man, “Once when I was a kid, walking in a street with my mom, I saw a person-Jill. He was a handsome guy with cool look. He liked to sit and enjoy wither at work or at home. Day by day he was doing the same style until one day; he was admitted in a hospital. After a month his mom was crying. And after few days I got to know the reason that, “Jill was expired due to unmaintained fitness and increase in cholesterol and got heart attack.” I was shocked to know that” From that day onwards I decided to do something to maintain my health.

 

After listening to that story, the old man started crying and said to Richa, “You were right my child, if only I took care of Jill, this wouldn’t have happened.”

“What do you mean by that?” Richa

“The Jill you were talking about was my boy. After he expired, I regretted every single day.” Old man continued, “I never thought that my son’s life can become example for the people.”

“Well. Your son directly and indirectly gave me the meaning of life. I’m going to preserve it for sure.” Richa said and moved on.

 

The moral of this story is that, everyone can learn something from someone and by learning it they have to do something to gain few things, if they don’t then they will might not have anything.

“Grow Silently” – M. Ganesh Sai

In an unknown village there was a person-Jim.  He’s an intelligent person in that village. He wanted to grow big.  He went to go city for doing business with his wife and two children.  When he went to the city, with the money he had, he couldn’t start business.  He started with a small shop; with the profits he’d started business.  At first he gained plenty of wealth in business after sometime he started to face losses.  Jim started to take money from external sources and couldn’t give them back.  He started to get worried for his children’s and discussed with his wife.

 

Jim’s Wife was Lara.  The conversation took place between them for couple of minutes in this way:

“Can we talk for few minutes?” Jim said, “It’s little urgent and serious issue Lara.”

“Yes, we can talk now.” Lara said.

“In business which I did was almost lost all the money. I..,, I.,, I don’t know from where to start with.” Jim said.

“Come on! Just say it, I’m getting nervous.” Lara exclaimed.

“Okay! I don’t have money to give back.  So I took a decision, but you’ve to support me for the decision I took now.” Jim said.

“I supported you every time. How come you thought that I won’t support you?” Lara said in a funny manner.

“I’m serious! Why are you making those funny expressions?” Jim exclaimed.

“We’re having conversation. If you speak seriously we can’t make good solution. That’s why I said in a funny way.” Lara said. “Now relax yourself and tell me what you’ve decided?”

“Since I can’t give back the money now, either I’ve to surrender all to creditors or wel should go away from this place.” Jim said.

“What is best for our children’s future you decide it.” Lara continued, “If we stay here, I don’t think we can solve the problem quickly and that might affect on our children’s education. If we go away from this place then we’ve to come back one day or the other to settle this, otherwise it’ll again cause problem to our children.”

“I know! That’s the reason why I’m discussing with you before making such decisions.”Jim responded politely.

 

What they must have done according to you? Do you think they must have settled in the same place to settle the problem? Do you think they can really solve the problem so easily? (Or) Did they leave the place to start new life? Even if they left, they can ever come back to solve the issue?

 

If you’ve great creative thoughts you can create your own story from here depending upon your imagination and attitude. Just try to expand your thoughts without reading farther story for couple of minutes. Whatever the ideas you got, write it down. This process will improve your thinking skills and you can become more creative, innovative and imaginative. Otherwise! let’s get going.

 

After the conversation with Lara, Jim had decided to leave the place and to go far away with his family. One of Jim’s best friends was in a different place, So Jim decided to go and settle there for couple of years. Jim’s children asked him a question, “Why we’re shifting the place again?”

Jim replied to his elder son-Rick, “Son! The previous place was good, but this place we are going is great.”

Rick’s mind was puzzled. He thought for awhile and responded, “Okay! We’ll see to it.”

Jim smiled and saw his younger son-Boris, who was still gazing at his mother and father. Jim asked, “What are you thinking so deeply by looking at us?”

“I’m just thinking, What about our shops and studies?” Boris said. “I haven’t told my friends where we are going.”

“You don’t worry about it; we’ll be back to our previous place after my works are over.” Jim said.

“That’s sounds good to me.”  Boris responded.

 

Jim’s family reached their destination. After they went there, it took time for them to settle in that place. Jim couldn’t do any business at the place where he is now. Lara said to Jim, “I think business is not a good idea. Already you’ve burnt your fingers, now don’t burn yourself.”

“Then what should I do?” Jim questioned.

“You’ve a tremendous education background with business experience. You can try in different fields like, Universities, industries and institutions.” Lara explained.

 

Jim thought for awhile and decided to try for some institutions. After a week he got a job in a reputed institution in that place. He started working hard and they were happy with what they got. Few months had passed and they couldn’t get more money for solving the previous issue. Jim was happy from outside, but began to get worried from inside. He recollected that he had passion for writing and innovating something out of nothing in his childhood.

 

Jim started to write stories and articles. He started to search for the magazines and news papers in which his works were accepted. A month passed away and he hadn’t got any magazine, nor news paper links to get it published.

 

 

One fine day, Jim’s friend Arthur who helped him, came to meet him. Jim was just wondering around the house and Arthur suddenly laughed. Jim suddenly turned and saw Arthur., Jim’s face was puzzled and still he was just looking at Arthur instead of talking. Arthur said, “What got into you? Looking at me, as if I did something wrong.”

“Nothing like that, it’s just…” Jim stopped.

“Come on! Continue, complete the sentence.”Arthur said with a smile.

“It’s just, you know about my passion of writing and creating new things, right?” Jim posed a question.

“Yeah, I know, but now why are you worried about that?” Arthur said. “If you’re planning to write just write it and try for some news paper, so that you can get some visibility and money too.”

“Arthur, Arthur I got the same idea. I already wrote it, but I’m not getting the proper links.” Jim responded in a childish way.

“Well, well, well. It seems to me like you are still doing lot of hard work rather than smart work.” Arthur continued, “I’ve a friend, who works in a local news paper. I’ll talk to him and let you know, if it’s ok with you.”

“That sounds great. When can I expect your answer?” Jim asked with anxiety.

“Whoa! You seems to be energetic, all of the sudden. I’ll inform you shortly. Now relax yourself. I also have to go out. Take care and see you later.” Arthur said and went off.

 

Two days had been passed and Jim was still waiting for Arthur’s response. Arthur called Jim and congratulated him.

“What did I achieve?” Jim asked.

Arthur laughed and responded, “I spoke with my friend and He said that, he’ll take your writing work.”

“Really that’s great news.” Jim exclaimed, “Thanks for the help you’ve done.”

“Hey! Come on; don’t embrace me with ‘Thanks’” Arthur told.

“It’s not like that. Okay, when I’ve to send the manuscript to your friend?” Jim posed a question.

“Today evening would be fine.” Arthur continued, “I also have some work. I’ll meet you later. Good Luck!” and ended the call.

 

Jim on that day evening sent the manuscript to Arthur’s friend. It was accepted and got published. After that publication, Jim’s confidence level was raised. He started to write various things in new dimensions. Jim’s publication rating had gone up within few months. Jim decided to write a book. He struggled hard for a year to make it, and finally completed it. Due to his publications it was easy for him to get the book published. He was slowly getting better financially as well as becoming famous.

 

After 5 years he went back to the place, from where he had lost everything and settled the problem. Jim was happy to be back to his normal form. He wanted to meet his relatives and went to see them with his wife and two children’s. Jim’s relatives avoided him and looked him like a stranger. Jim asked, “Why you all are behaving like this?”

His relatives responded, “Because, you have lost everything. Without money we don’t want you.”

 

Jim was silent and went off from that place. Gradually Jim’s book was going all over the world and he became famous after few years. He became best author in the world. At that time his relatives came to him. Jim looked at them and ignored. His relatives asked him, “Why are you ignoring us?” Jim gave a broad smile and responded, “Even in my success and failure my wife and my two sons are with me. For me, they are important, not the people who wants only money than person.” Now you may leave the place.

 

We can conclude that, a person should make right decision at right time to feel success. We have to get inspired with Jim’s attitude, thoughts and leadership skills. He had grown silently instead of blowing his own trumpets. The world has to tell, you are great not you telling the whole world that, I’m great. Person should’ve positive attitude to taste success. You should choose a life partner, who’ll be with you even at happiness and sadness, which gives you the real success.

“Love Your Parents Till Your End – A Short Story” – M. Ganesh Sai

Once upon a time in village there was an old man-Bill.  He wanted to meet his son who lived in a city.  He started his journey and came to a city where his son used to work and stay.  He went to the place from where he used to get letters long back.  When he knocked the door he was excited and smiled with joy to meet his son.  Unfortunately, someone else opened the door. Bill asked, “I suppose Mike should be staying in this place.” The person said, “No! He had left the place and shifted to different location.”  Bill was disappointed and just thinking how to meet his son.  He started to walk in the street and the neighbors asked bill, “Are you looking for Mike?” Bill responded by nodding his head.  The neighbors gave the present address and office address of Mike to the Bill.  Bill thanked them and started towards the path which will lead to his son.

 

Bill went to the office and asked in the reception counter, “Could you please tell me the location of Mike, in this office?” The receptionist asked, “May I know how you are related to him?” Bill responded politely by saying, “I’m his father.” The receptionist said, Bill to wait for a moment and rang up to Mike and conveyed the same.  Mike was shocked and told the receptionist to send his father to the cabin immediately.  Bill entered the cabin and when he saw Mike; his eyes were filled with tears.  Mike was happy to see his father.  They had a simple conversation for a while and then Bill asked Mike, “Son! Mom wants to see you.  Come home with me.”

Mike responded, “No father.  I can’t come.  I’ve a busy life and it’s hard to get leave.”

Bill gave a simple smile and said, “Okay! You may do your work.  I’ll be going back to our village today evening.”

Mike asked, “You can stay for few days with me.  Please.”

Bill responded after a moment of silence, “Son.  You are busy with your tasks.  I don’t want to make you uncomfortable or become a burden for you.” Continued, “I hope if ever had chance to meet you again, I would be happy.” He left the place.

 

After 2 months Mike felt bad for treating his father in a weird manner.  He felt guilt for it and took a leave in office for few days and went to his village to meet his father.  When he went to the place where he was born and grew up, he saw that his parents were not there.  He was shocked and asked the neighbors, “What happened here? My parents have to be there.  Where are they now?” The neighbors gave the address of the place where his parents are staying.  Mike rushed to the place and noticed that the place where his parents are staying currently was like a graveyard.  Mike eyes was filled with tears and started to walk slowly towards the home.  His father Bill noticed Mike in a far distance and waved his hand to draw his attention.  Mike saw his father and started to run and hugged him.

 

Bill asked, “How are you?” and continued, “What a surprise to see you here. I didn’t expect that you would be coming to this place.”

Mike felt ashamed and kept his head down. Bill said, “Why are you feeling bad.  Is anything wrong happened?”

Mike responded, “No father” continued, “It’s just I never knew that I would be seeing you in this position in our village.”

Bill smiled and said, “I had debts due to loss in farming and wanted to reclaim our home back.  So I thought of approaching you, but you were more concerned about your tasks than us.  I just didn’t want to burden you with this problem and remained silent.”

Mike whispered, “You could’ve told me. I’m not an outsider.”

Bill turned around and said, “Your words on office made me to remain quiet.  All we wanted was your happiness.  So I kept quiet.”

Mike started to cry and hugged his father again. He asked his father to apologize and forgive him for his mistake. Bill smiled and said, “No need for that.  All I wanted was that you must come to us.  I’m happy with what I got now.” And from then Mike made his parents life more comfortable.

 

The moral of the story is that, the parents of most of the children wants their children to be happy and they don’t seek for a help when they need.  It’s the responsibility of children to take care of their parents till their end.

“Synchronize Your Conscious and Subconscious Mind” – M. Ganesh Sai

“The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment.” – Earl Nightingale

 

 

Once upon a time there was a boy who always remained with his master, Anand and assisted him all the time.  Anand mostly depended on the boy for making decisions whenever he was in dilemma. Anand never regretted for seeking the boy’s assistance.

 

Who was that boy? Well! It’s an interesting tale. When Anand was a child, he never had a friend to share his feelings, happiness and joy. One day his teacher lectured in the classroom, “In our life, we’ve someone who will be with us till our end. It’s hard to live without that person.”  Anand started to search in all the places and couldn’t find that person. He was annoyed, approached his teacher and asked, “I’ve not found anyone who can understand me? What you said was a lie.”

“What? You must’ve mistaken. You can’t find him. You can’t see him. But you can feel him and you can talk with him all the time. Do you know who is it?” Teacher continued, “If you find the answer, it is good. If you don’t find the answer, search for it.  If you cannot find the answer come to me and I will tell who it is?”

“Okay! I’ll try my best,” Anand responded to his teacher and left.

                                                                                          

Anand searched for the answer day and night and couldn’t get the person who had to be with him till his end.  After a week passed, he came to his teacher with a smile and said, “Thank you.”

“Thank you! For what?” teacher confused and asked.

“I found the answer for the sentence you used, and I got my friend who can be with me till my end.” Anand expressed with joy.

“Really, may I know who’s that?” Teacher inquired.

“It’s my subconscious mind. It’s the only thing which will be with me till my last breath.” Anand expressed with confidence.

“Well done! You got the answer. From now onwards preserve, protect and follow it.” Teacher said.

 

The boy was none other than Anands’ subconscious mind. He always discussed with it and made decisions. The moral of this story is to be friendly with your conscious and subconscious mind and synchronize them effectively to lead peaceful and pleasant life.

 

 

 

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” – Thornton Wilder

“Listen Attentively; Avoid Jumping into Conclusions” – M. Ganesh Sai

“Most of the successful people I’ve known are the ones who do more listening than talking.”- Bernard M. Baruch

Once there was a boy-Roy. He was playing in a garden. When he was playing, his father called him and said, “Take this money and get vegetables from market.”

“Father! I just started playing now. Can I go later?” Roy requested.

“No son. It’s almost going to be noon. Lunch is to be prepared and we need vegetables.  Get them soon.” Father ordered.

“Okay! I’ll bring.” Roy said and started to go to vegetables shop.

After an hour passed, Roy returned with empty basket without any vegetables. The conversation took place between both of them as follows:

“Where are the vegetables?” His father asked with anger.

“Father, I spent all that money to buy…” Roy was interrupted in the middle of the conversation.

“What! You spent all that money! What you’ve done with it. Where you’ve lost it? Tell me now.” His father shouted.

“I just bought a blanket and gave it to….” Roy was again interrupted in middle of the conversation by his father.

“You bought a blanket? And you gave it to unknown person! How could you do that? At home everyone is starving, and you are wasting money for no reason.” His father continued, “You’ve become irresponsible. Just go to your room.”

“But, dad…” Roy said.

“Just shut up and go to your room.” Father ordered.

Roy was in his room till evening and crying. His father came to his room and sat beside him. Roy stopped crying and was looking at his father. His father said, “I’m sorry for shouting at you. But you’ve wasted money for no reason. That’s why I shouted at you.”

“I didn’t waste for unwanted things.” Roy responded.

“Why again you are arguing like that?” father annoyed.

“Just listen to me carefully without any interruption.” Roy continued, “On the way to market, I saw grandfather who was sitting outside shivering with cold. I spent a part of the money to buy a blanket and gave it to him. I spent the balance money to buy a hot coffee and fruits for him.”

“You should’ve told me in morning itself.” Father said and continued, “Why didn’t you tell me at that time.”

“I was trying to tell you but you interrupted the conversation and jumped into conclusion,” Roy asserted.

Then father realized his mistake and regretted misunderstanding his son. He expressed his happiness to Roy and implored him to do such things and become an example for others.

The moral of this story is not to jump into conclusion. Listen attentively; think through; and then act accordingly.

Good luck!

Curricular and Extra-Curricular Activities – Short Story

“Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.” – Dale Carnegie

 

 

Once in a university there was a boy named Terry.  He was the topper of his class.  He was always interested in reading, reading and reading…  One fine day, his faculty asked him, “Why you’re interested only in studies, not in sports?” Terry responded, “Well! It’s because the studies will give me knowledge, confidence, and of course, good marks.” The faculty laughed at him and said, “It’s good to score marks.  But if you don’t participate in sports it’ll affect you in a long run.” Terry was puzzled and asked, “Now what should I do?” The faculty saw Terry’s eyes and responded, “Well, nothing much to say. Just participate in the tennis game which is going to be held next week.” Terry said confidently, “Okay! That’s not a big deal for me.”

 

On the day of game, Terry gave a try.  He tried hard in his game and couldn’t win the match.  He decided to pursue only studies, instead of sports.  After a while his faculty came and asked, “What happened? Why are you not participating in sports?” Terry responded, “I tried, but failed.  Now I can’t play the game anymore.” His faculty was silent for a moment, and said, “If you’re thinking like that, then what the other students will think about themselves.” Terry was puzzled and asked with curiosity, “Why the other students have to think about themselves.  They were doing great!” The faculty smiled and said, “It’s not about the game.  In studies, you’ve practiced every day, learned new things, and got the best marks in the exam.  The other students are average and below average, and they may be feeling bad for not getting good marks like you.” Terry responded quickly, “It’s because, they mightn’t have put their best or not interested in the subject.”  The faculty said, “Exactly! That’s the same case with you too in sports.”

 

The moral of this story is that, everyone has talent in their own fields.  The only thing you should remember is to work hard regularly to achieve success.

Be a Wise Worker – A Short Story

“I know the price of success: dedication, hard work and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.” – Frank Lloyd Wright

Once upon a time there were two friends – Ben and Jim in an institution. Ben was a hard worker who often worked hard day and night to score high in examination. In contrast, Jim liked working smart and was more interested in sleeping for longer time. When results were declared, Ben asked Jim, “Do you think you are going to pass?” Jim responded, “May be, yes.” When the results were declared Ben was happy to score the percentage he wanted and immediately asked Jim, “May I know your score?” Jim smiled and said, “I think! You have to see it for yourself.” Jim showed his examination results. When Ben saw the score of Jim he was astonished and asked, “How do you always get good score without working hard?” Jim was very cool and replied, “Well, my friend! I sleep for more time; my mind gets relaxed; works shaper; and grasps the things quickly.” Ben responded, “Well! What you said was true, but without practice you can’t remember everything?” Jim laughed and said, “That’s the reason why I’m not getting great marks, but good marks.”

Both Ben and Jim appreciated the learning styles of each other and collaborated. Ben started working smart and Jim started working hard, and in the final examination, both topped in their scores. The moral of this story is to blend both hard and smart work, and create a wise work to achieve all-round success in your life.

Choose Your Destiny – Short Story

Once upon a time there were plenty of animals in a desert. The temperatures in the desert shot up alarmingly due to climatically changes. Most of the animals were at the verge of extinction. One of the animals, leopard came up with an idea of shifting to safer place for survival.

Leopard led from front with lot of struggles and carried the rest of the animals. On their way they faced several challenges and they found cactus plants on the way as hurdles. They cleared the cactus plants and moved forward. During the journey the animals were getting restless and tired. Having observed this, the leopard motivated by raising their confidence levels. Finally, they found a suitable place where they found water with wet land. And they settled happily.

The moral of this story is that we face several challenges in our life. We must find suitable solutions to overcome them. The leopard led from front like a real leader and set right direction to others thus ensuring the survival of all animals.

Short Story- Unlock Your Hidden Potential

Once upon a time in a city there was a boy by name Mark. He was a straight forward person. He was studying in graduation. Mark was an average student. He decided to demonstrate his hidden potential when entered into the final year of graduation.

Mark approached his faculties and expressed his desire to participate in debate competition. One of the faculties told Mark, “From the starting of your academic year you have not participated in any debates and events. Now you need a lot of practice and it is very difficult for you to participate.” Mark replied to faculty, “Give me an opportunity. I’ll prove myself” The faculty refused his request.

Mark returned class and thought for a while at his desk. Mark’s classmates laughed at him over his intention to participate in debate competition. Mark ignored them. Mark approached senior faculty member Jack and expressed his desire to participate in debate competition. Jack initially refused. However, Jack was impressed with Mark’s initiative and interest and finally allowed him to participate in the competition.

Mark participated in competition and won second price. Students were surprised with Mark’s amazing performance. Jack was overwhelmed. Students enquired Jack, “Sir, what happened when Mark came to your office?” Jack replied, “Mark expressed his interest to participate in competition and I believed his potential and gave an opportunity. He also added that, “You need to take risk and trust and encourage others in life. That is what I did and finally Mark proved himself by winning with second position.”

The moral of this story is that everyone has hidden potential. We need to believe, risk, spot, and encourage others so as to make them realize their potential.
