The Obstacle In The Road


Way back in the day, a king had his soldiers place a boulder on a roadway. He then hid in the nearby and watched to see if anyone would move the boulder out of the way. Sadly, most of the king’s people would just pass by and simply walk around the obstacle in the road.

Many people blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none of them did anything about removing the stone.

One day, a humble peasant came along carrying some vegetables. When he reached the boulder, the peasant put down his vegetables and tried to push the stone out of the way. After much pushing and straining, he finally managed to move the obstacle in the road.

To the peasant’s surprise, when he pushed the boulder off the side of the road, he found a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the King explain that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the road.

Moral of the story: Every obstacle that we come across gives us an opportunity to improve our circumstances, and while the some people complain, others are creating opportunities through their kind hearts, generosity and willingness to get things done. So, git-er done!!
