Inspiring Story: The only thing that will stop you from fulfilling your dreams is yourself! (A must read)


So, I heard this story from my grandmother and it blew my mind! The only thing that will stop you from fulfilling your dreams is yourself!


Read below:




A young chap went to a soothsayer to inquire about his future.
Right before his eyes, the soothsayer drew two circles. One in white and the other in black.

He then put a millipede in between the circles, saying "if the millipede crawls into the white circle, your future will be great, but if it crawls into the black circle, then you are doomed! Your future is bleak!".

As soon as the insect was dropped in between the circles, it began crawling towards the white circle.

This chap was super-excited.

But suddenly, as it got to the edge of the circle, it turned back and began crawling away from the white circle towards the black one.
The boy watched as the insect progressively moved farther away from his desire to his doom.

Then, just when the insect got to the edge of the black circle, this chap picked it up and quickly but carefully dropped it in the white circle.

The soothsayer, watching all the while, asked the chap what he did and why he did what he did.

The boy simply replied by saying " I cannot sit and watch my destiny doom while I can still do something about it and to change its course. My destiny is in my hands".

He got up and left.

Many of us are behaving like the flip side of this chap.
We leave too many things to chance.
We are laid back.
We Watch things messed up right under our nose and we do nothing to change the course of what we can help.

Many pray without a corresponding and conscious effort, forgetting that faith without works is dead. Action gives motion to destiny

What you don't want, you don't watch (David Oyedepo).
If you do nothing, nothing will happen.

There's a time for everything under the sun.. There's a time to close your eyes in prayers and a time to open them in action.
