The fruits of discipline

This is a story of grandfather, grandmother, rock, sea and water.

Moral(s) of the story: discipline and hard work

Raj was a very impatient child.

He could barely focus at one task before launching himself towards another.

One day, while watching a television show, he decided that he wanted to be a wrestler. So he told his grandfather, “I want to become a wrestler! What should I do?”

His grandfather took him to a teacher. The teacher trained Raj in different wrestling moves. And even though the little boy was very enthusiastic, he could do hardly one thing before jumping onto another. Thus, he never properly practised his moves.

Days passed yet Raj did not get better at his sport and he frowned at his grandfather, “I am not getting stronger. What will I do now?”

His grandfather took him on a walk by the beach and pointed to the cliffs. “Do you know Raj, that the water breaks down these rocks?”

Raj’s eyes widened, “Really? But these rocks are so big? How can the sea break them down?”

His grandfather smiled and watched as Raj lightly splashed around in the water, “It takes many years, it does not happen overnight. Just like you cannot become a wrestler overnight. You need to be disciplined in your work and be patient. Then you will one day become capable enough to achieve your goals.”


Moral:

You need to be disciplined and hardworking to achieve your goal.
