A Motivational Story ‘Acres of Diamonds”



Hafiz was a farmer in Africa who was happy and content. He was happy because he was content. He was content because he was happy. One day a wise man came and told him about the glory of diamonds and the power that goes along with them. The wise man said, “if you had a diamond the size of your thumb, you could buy your own city. If you had a diamond the size of your fist, you could probably buy your own country.” And then the wise man left. That night, Hafiz could not sleep. He was unhappy and he was discontented. He was unhappy because he was discontented and discontented because he was unhappy.
The next morning Hafiz mad arrangements to sell his farm, took care of his family and went off in search of diamonds. He looked all over Africa and could not find any. He looked all through Europe and could not find any. By the time he got to Spain, he was emotionally, physically and financially broke. He was so disheartened that he threw himself into the Barcelona river and committed suicide.
            Back home, the person who had bought his farm was watering the camels at the stream that ran through the farm. Across the stream that ran through the farm. Across the stream, the rays of the morning sun hit a stone and made it sparkle like a rainbow. He thought the stone would look good in his living room. He picked up the stone and put it on his mantle piece. That afternoon, the wise man came and saw the stone sparkling. He asked, “Is Hafiz back?” The new owner said, “No, that’s just a stone I picked up from
the stream. Come I’ll show you. There are many more.” They went and picked some samples and sent them for analysis. Sure enough, the stones were diamonds. They found that the farm was Indeed covered with acres and acres of diamonds.”

Moral of the story :- When our attitude is right, we realize that we are all walking on acres of diamonds. Opportunities are always under our feet. We don’t have to go anywhere. When we don’t know how to recognize opportunity, it could slap us on our face and would still not be able to recognize it. All we need to do is to learn to recognize opportunities.
