I was inspired by this story and thought that I would share it with you so that by the end of this blog, you will stop under looking yourself. You are more than beyond what you see.
A boy one day went to his father and asked him “Dad, what is the worth of life?” His father didn’t answer him but instead gave him a stone and instructed him to go the market place. He told him if any one asked him how much the stone costs; he should not say a word but instead raise 2 fingers.
The boy then went to the market and a woman asked “how much is this stone? I want to buy it and put it in my flower garden.” The boy then raised two fingers and the woman said “oh! $2, will take it”. The boy then ran home to his father and told him that a woman wanted to buy the stone at $2. His father then told him to take the stone to the museum, “if anybody wants to buy just raise your two fingers and don’t say a word” his father instructed him.
The boy then went to a museum and a man wanted to buy the rock, the boy didn’t say a word but instead raised his 2 fingers. The man then said “Oh $200, I’ll take it. The boy was shocked and ran home to his father and told him about it. His father then said “son, the last place I want you to take this rock is to a precious stone store. Take and show it to the owner”. The boy did so and went to the precious stone store. Upon showing it to the owner of the precious stone store, he said oh! Where did you get this precious stone? It’s one of the most precious stones that is very rare I must have it. He asked the boy “How much?” the boy just raised his 2 finger and the man said I’ll take it for $200,000, the boy not knowing what to say, he ran home and told his father about this. His father said “son do you know the value of your life now?”
You see, it doesn’t matter where you come from, where you were born, your skin color or how much money you were born into. It matters where you decide to place yourself, the people you surround yourself with, and how you chose to carry your self.
You may have lived your whole life thinking that you are a $2 stone, you have lived your whole life surrounded by people who saw you for only $2. But everybody has a diamond inside them and we can choose to surround ourselves with people who see the value on us, we can decide to place ourselves in the market or the precious stone store. You can choose to see the diamond in someone. Someone to help another to bring out the best in them.
