A small town invited a lecturer to address it annual dinner. The town’s economy was bad, people were disheartened, and they needed this motivational speaker to give them an enhancement.
During his presentation, the presenter took a big piece of white paper and made a small black dot at the middle with a shapes pen. After that, he held the paper up before the group and asked them what they saw.
One person quickly said, “I see a black dot.”
“Ok, what else do you see?”
Other united in agreement: “A black dot.”
“Don’t you see something besides the dot?” – He asked.
A loud “No” came from the listeners.
“What about the piece of paper?” – asked the presenter. “I am pretty sure you have all seen it”, he said, “But you have preferred to overlook it.”
“In our lives, we also tend to overlook and take for granted many wonderful things that we have or happens around us and emphasis our devotion and energy on small, dot like failure and disappointments. The problem in our life we frequently like the black dot on the paper. They are small and unimportant if we can extend our limit and look at the whole picture.”
Okay! And who are you? The person who emphasis your attention and energy on dot-like problem.
