Avoid Blemishes, Accept Blisses: Motivational Story

Avoid Blemishes, Accept Blisses: Motivational Story

a certain professor entered into the class and told his students straightway “Hello,
boys and girls, today I am gonna take a surprising test among you. Just get yourself
ready for the test, ok.” The students waited anxiously at their desks for the
test to begin.

professor walked around the class and handed the question papers with the
text facing downwards.

he handed them all out, he asked his students to turn the page and begin. To
everyone’s surprise, there were no questions, but just a black dot in the
centre of the page. The professor thoroughly read through everyone’s bewildered
expressions and said-  “I want you to write what you see there.”

the students got perplexed. Out of their confusion they started abiding by the
order they are asked to do.

the examination was over. The professor took all the answer sheets and started
reading each one of them aloud in front of all the students. All of them with
no exceptions described the black dot, trying to explain its position in the
middle of the sheet, etc.  After all had been read, the classroom silent,
the professor began to explain:

am not gonna grade you on this test; I just wanted to give you something to
think about. No one wrote about the white part of the paper. Everyone focused
on the black dot – and the same happens in our lives. This is exactly what we
end to do with our lives. We have a white paper to hold onto and enjoy, but we
are so busy contemplating about the dark spots that’s in there. Life is a
special gift and we will always have reasons to celebrate. It is changing and
renewing everyday- our friends, jobs, livelihood, love, family, the miracles we
see every day.”

yet we insist on focusing only on the dark spots – the health issues that are
bothering us, the money that we need to have, the luxuries we don’t have,
problems of unemployment, complications in any relationship, problems of
getting a beautiful girl friend or a wife,  problems with a family member,
the disappointment with a friend and so on.

need to realize that the dark spots are very small and only few. They are small
and insignificant if we can widen our horizon and look at the whole picture. And
yet we allow these to pollute our minds.

your eyes away from the black spots in your life. Enjoy each one of your
blessings, each moment that life gives you.

happy and live a life positively!
