Long ago, in a land not so far away, a King had a large boulder placed upon a roadway. He then hide himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge stone.
To his surprise, many of the King's wealthiest merchants came along and simply chose to walk around it... Many loudly blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but no one even attempted to move this massive hindrance out of the way.
By and by, a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden, and tried to move the stone to one side of the road. After much toil, pushing and straining, he finally succeeded.
As the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying on the road where he had displaced the immense rock... The purse contained many gold coins, along with a note from the King indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway.
That day the peasant learned what many will never understand—that every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve one's condition. Indeed, it could be argued that all of us have something in our way... And, too, all of us have the same choice—accept things as they are, or make a change.
