Motivational Story:- Keep Your Dream!

I have a friend named Monty Roberts who owns a horse ranch in San Isidro. He has let me use his house to put on fund-raising events to raise money for youth at risk programs.

The last time I was there he introduced me by saying, “I want to tell you why I let Jack use my horse. It all goes back to a story about a young man who was the son of an itinerant horse trainer who would go from stable to stable, race track to race track, farm to farm and ranch to ranch, training horses.

As a result, the boy’s high school career was continually interrupted. When he was a senior, he was asked to write a paper about what he wanted to be and do when he grew up. “That night he wrote a seven-page paper describing his goal of someday owning a horse ranch.

He wrote about his dream in great detail and he even drew a diagram of a 200-acre ranch, showing the location of all the buildings, the stables and the track. Then he drew a detailed floor plan for a 4,000-square-foot house that would sit on a 200-acre dream ranch. “He put a great deal of his heart into the project and the next day he handed it in to his teacher. Two days later he received his paper back.

On the front page was a large red F with a note that read, `See me after class.’ “The boy with the dream went to see the teacher after class and asked, `Why did I receive an F?’ “The teacher said, `This is an unrealistic dream for a young boy like you. You have no money. You come from an itinerant family. You have no resources.

Owning a horse ranch requires a lot of money. You have to buy the land. You have to pay for the original breeding stock and later you’ll have to pay large stud fees. There’s no way you could ever do it.’ Then the teacher added, `If you will rewrite this paper with a more realistic goal, I will reconsider your grade.’ “The boy went home and thought about it long and hard. He asked his father what he should do.

His father said, `Look, son, you have to make up your own mind on this. However, I think it is a very important decision for you.’ “Finally, after sitting with it for a week, the boy turned in the same paper, making no changes at all. He stated, “You can keep the F and I’ll keep my dream.” Monty then turned to the assembled group and said, “I tell you this story because you are sitting in my 4,000-square-foot house in the middle of my 200-acre horse ranch. I still have that school paper framed over the fireplace.” He added, “The best part of the story is that two summers ago that same schoolteacher brought 30 kids to camp out on my ranch for a week.” When the teacher was leaving, he said, “Look, Monty, I can tell you this now.

When I was your teacher, I was something of a dream stealer. During those years I stole a lot of kids’ dreams. Fortunately you had enough gumption not to give up on yours.”

#Moral: Don’t let anyone steal your dreams. Follow your heart, no matter what. No Dream is too big or too small when one works hard to live it. One should always try making dreams come true no matter what.

The Value of Work.!

Story 1: Difference of Work..!! Once a heart surgeon went to local garage for his car service. Garage owner who was also a skilled mechanic attended him and a little friendly banter started between two.

Mechanic said, “So.. I have been wondering.. What we both do for a living..?” “So..?”, questioned surgeon. Mechanic replied, “Well look at this.. ” As mechanic was checking on the engine he said, “I check how it’s running, open it up and then fix valves and also after working all i put it all back together..

Now it will work as good as new..” Surgeon was confused.. Mechanic continued, “We basically do the same job.. Don’t we?? yet you get paid ten times what i get.. can you tell me why’s that??” Surgeon thought for a moment and then smiled gently toward mechanic and said, “Try it with engine running..”

Moral: Some times simple Answer can Makes us Understand big Differences..

Story 2: Value of one Screw..!! Once there was an industrialist.. in one of his factories production line inexplicably break down. It was costing him loss of million per day.

No one was able to find out what problem occurred with in production line. At last industrialist was able to track down an expert. When expert came he examined the production line then at a point he took the screw driver and turned just one screw and just with that whole production line started working just fine.

After work was finished expert presented industrialist with a bill of 10,000$ Affronted, Industrialist demanded an itemized version of the bill. Just after a few minutes expert came back with itemized bill. Bill read: “For turning screw: 1$.. For knowing which screw to turn: 9,999$”

Moral: One puts his Hard work, Labor and Time in Learning and Becoming Skilled or Expert at anything.
