Motivational Story About Courage & Its Importance For Success
Every year, during the summer holidays, Dravid used to go mountaineering in a dense hilly area with his friends. This year too, he reached Texas for the same purpose.
The guide took him to a famous mountaineering spot. Dravid and his friends did not think that there would be such a crowd here. People were visible everywhere.
A friend said, “Dude, there is a crowd like a city here … What fun to climb here ?”
“What can we do … Now we have come, so what is the benefit of feeling sorry … Let’s enjoy this …”, Dravid replied.
All friends started mountaineering and in no time reached the top of the hill.
There was already a flow of people there. Friends thought, let’s go camping for two-four hours in this crowd and then go back. Then Dravid pointed to a peak in front and said, “Wait, wait … Look at that peak too … There are only a handful of people there … How much fun it must be … Why don’t we go there? ”
“There!”, A friend said, “Hey, it is not easy for everyone to go there … I have heard about that hill, the way it is very difficult and only a few lucky people can reach it.”
Some people standing next made fun of Dravid and said, “Brother, if it was so easy to go there, we would not have been sitting idle here!”
But Dravid did not listen to anyone and went alone towards the peak. And three hours later he was on the summit of that hill.
On reaching there, people already present welcomed him and encouraged him.
Dravid was also very happy to reach there and now he could enjoy the beauty of nature in peace.
On the go, Dravid asked the rest of the people, “Tell me one thing … It was not so difficult to reach here, I think that if you can reach that crowded peak, if you work a little more, then this peak too can be touched… Then why is it that there is a crowd of hundreds and only a handful of people here? ”
A veteran mountaineer present there said, “Because most people are happy only in what they find easy … they don’t think they have the potential to get much more than that … and even those who get a little something aren’t happy but they do not want to take the risk to get more… They are afraid that in the case of too much, they do not even let go of what they got… while the reality is that to get the next peak or the next destination, You just need a little more Effort! But because of not being able to show courage, most of the people remain as part of the crowd whole life… and they keep complaining about those handfuls of courageous people and call them lucky.”
Friends, if till today you are preventing yourself from taking that bold step then don’t do it because-
To get to the next peak or the next destination, You just need a little more effort!
Don’t stop yourself from putting that effort… a little courage… a little courage can get you out of the crowd and join the handful of people the world calls lucky.
