Did you know that a small piece of the pencil can decide your fate? Don’t believe me? Let me walk you through one of my favourite story that has shaped my life for betterment.
One-day Ram forgets his pencil in class. He borrows it from Krishna and he shares it happily. Krishna says I have a very small piece of pencil, if you are okay with it, then take it. Ram takes it and starts to write. The school bell rings and both leave for the day. Ram thinks that its small piece of pencil, Krishna wouldn’t mind even if I don’t return. And yes Krishna felt it was such a small piece of pencil, it doesn’t matter much. Let him retain the piece of pencil.
Now Krishna and Ram are very good friends. They share a good rapport. They study together. Then comes a time to take projects, Krishna opts for other friends unconsciously. He didn’t intend to hurt Ram, but somehow subconsciously he ignored. Now they are growing fast. And now Krishna becomes an entrepreneur, he gets many opportunities. Now he thinks whom should I share this opportunity with? Who can be my best partner? He gets few names but not Ram, though Ram has better qualification and skills for that project. He thinks Ram doesn’t have the right intentions. He couldn’t return that small piece of the pencil; how can I trust that he shall be ethical in the project with me? What is the guarantee that he won’t cheat me in this project? If he had clear intentions, then he would have been my first preference.
He gives that project to someone else. Every small thing we do in life has repercussions. See how Ram’s fate is decided by that small piece of pencil. Despite having the right qualification and skills he couldn’t attract project. Always have the right intentions in life. You never know a small hurt; a small thing can stop you from succeeding in life. A win in present has the power to destroy your future. “Be good and do good”
