"The Easier way may actually be the tougher way"

 Once there was a lark singing in the forest. A farmer comes by with a box full of worms. The lark stopped him and asked, “ What do you have in the box and where are you going?” The farmer replied that he had worms and that he was going to the market to trade them for some feathers. The lark said, “I have many feathers. I will pluck one and give it to you and that will save me looking for worms.” The farmer gave the worms to the lark and the lark plucked a feather and gave it in return. The next day the same thing happened and the day after and on and on until a day came that the lark had no more feathers. Now it could no longer fly to go hunting for worms. It started looking ugly and stopped singing and very soon it died.

Moral of the story :- The above story exemplifies the behavior of losers who, for their short term gain, eventually suffer long term pain. The moral of this story is quire clear-what the lark thought was an easy way to get food tuned out to be the tougher way. There are no short cuts in life. Isn’t the same thing true in our lives? Many times we look for the easier way, which really ends up being the tougher way. The key is to get to the root of the problem and not just go with shortcuts. The same is true of our attitudes in life. Some people spread their attitudes of bitterness and resentment and these attitudes keep cropping up in different parts of their lives.
