[InstaMotivation@9pm] Miracles won’t happen unless we put the right efforts in the right direction




Once here lived a lazy farmer who did not enjoy working hard in the fields. He spent his days napping under a tree. One day, while he was resting under a tree, a fox came chasing a rabbit. There was a loud THUMP–the rabbit had crashed into the tree and died.

The farmer picked up the dead rabbit and took it home, frustrating the hell out of the fox. The farmer cooked and ate the rabbit for dinner and sold its fur at the market. The farmer thought to himself, “If I could get a rabbit like that every day, I’d never have to work again.”

The next day, the farmer went right back to the tree and waited for another rabbit to die in a similar way. He saw a few rabbits, but none of them ran into the tree like before. Indeed, it was a very rare incident, but the farmer did not realize it. “Oh well,” he thought cheerfully, “There’s always tomorrow.” Since he was just waiting for the rabbit to hit a tree and die, he did not give any attention to his field. Weeds grew in his rice field. Soon, the farmer had to be hungry as he ran out of his rice and never caught any other rabbit too.

Yes Miracles will happen sometimes with least or no efforts. But that will be the rarest of the rare times.If we have to see Miracles happen in our life as per our plans, we have to work very hard in the right direction. Existence also joins hands with us to see the better results than we expect. Do your best possible work. And don’t hanker or crave for the end goal. When you let go of your cravings, things will become relaxed and one by one miracles will start happening. Without any hard work, mere waiting for good results will be no less than foolishness.
