Luck favors those who help themselves!

A flood was threatening a small town and everyone was leaving for safe ground for one man who said, “God will save me. I have faith.” As the water level rose a jeep came to rescue him, the man refused, saying “God will save me. I have faith.” As the water level rose further, he went up to the second storey of his house, and a boat came to help him. Again he refused to go, saying, “God will save me. I have faith.” The water kept rising and the man climbed on to the roof. A helicopter came to rescue him, but he said, God will save me. I have faith.” Well, finally he drowned. When he reached his maker he angrily questioned, “I had completer faith in you. Why did you ignore my prayers and let me down?” The Lord replied, “Who do you think sent you the jeep, the boat and the helicopter?”

Moral of the story :-  What is the moral of story? He not only did not act help himself but even rejected the help that came his way. The above story is a clear example of fatalistic behavior which is prevalent in most failures. The only way to overcome a fatalistic attitude is to accept responsibility and believe in the law of cause and effect rather than luck. It takes action, preparation and planning rather than waiting, wondering and wishing to accomplish any goal in life.
