young boy and a great teacher
this is one of my favourite stories by Robin Sharma.....
once a young boy travelled far
from his home to study under a great teacher. When he met the
wise old man, his first question was, 'How long will it take me
before I am as wise as you?'
"The response came swiftly, 'Five years.'
"'This is a very long time,' the boy replied. 'How about if I
work twice as hard?'
'"Then it will take ten,' said the master.
'"Ten! That's far too long. How about if I studied all day and
well into the night, every night?'
'"Fifteen years,' said the sage.
"'I don't understand,' replied the boy. 'Every time I promise to
devote more energy to my goal, you tell me that it will take longer.
'"The answer is simple. With one eye fixed on the destination,
there is only one left to guide you along the journey'"
"Be patient and live with the knowledge that all you are searching for is certain to come if you prepare for it and expect it."
