Transcript – The Beggar and The Treasure (Inspiring Story)
Today I want to tell you a story of a beggar. This beggar sat on the road for more than thirty years begging for pennies.
One day a man passed by the beggar… “Spare some change?” asked the beggar .
The man replied: ”I have nothing to give you, but what is this thing you are sitting on?”
The beggar said: “It’s an old box I’ve been sitting on for a long time,”
“Have you tried opening it to see what is inside?”
The man asked,
The beggar replied, “Of course not, there is nothing inside, it is empty.”
The man insisted the beggar look inside… and to his surprise he discovered an abundance of gold and treasure.
The beggar had lived almost his entire life begging for pennies, while he sat on a fortune of treasure.
So, What’s The Lesson?
All of life’s treasures are within.
When you are searching outside yourself, when you are begging life to give you things that are within your reach, you’ll never experience the fullness of life you deserve. All of life’s treasures are within.
Don’t go through life begging for scraps when you have unlimited gold within you.
Believe in yourself. Get up and start taking action. Get up and go for gold.
You deserve more than pennies. You deserve more than you’ve been led to believe you deserve.
There is no lack in this world that actually exists outside the limits of our own mind.
When you let go of the idea of your limited worth you open up space for unlimited possibilities.
Dig deep for that treasure. Go within and see what you’re really made of.
Commit to give your all. Commit to learn what you CAN DO. To look for the possibilities rather than focus on the restrictions. To speak the positive more than the negative. To work more than you complain. Commit to be strong in the hard times. Commit to find that treasure that is your destiny.
Not just the treasure in money or material wealth. The treasure in spirit. The treasure in happiness and living a life you are PROUD OF.
That is what it’s all about.
Don’t tell me you just want the money. I know you! I know why you want the money. You want the money because you think it will make you happy.
Once you can buy that car or house, or appear important to the world. Once you have security or can give money to your family, then you can be happy…
Why not just be happy first? Why not pull the treasure out first.
Set the example to those around you, that you don’t need it, you aren’t attached to it, and then it will flow anyway.
