Have you heard the story of a billionaire who wanted to buy a small piece of land with a special location from a poor farmer? However, the farmer refused to sell the land because it was left by his parents. This billionaire did everything to motivate the farmer so that he had to sell the land to him. But no matter how much pressure he puts on his family and makes it difficult for the farmer’s job, the farmer works harder and more creatively to get up from difficulties and does not give in.
So the billionaire thought another way, every day secretly sending the farmer’s family a little money, gradually increasing it a little more. When he had more money, the farmer bought a little more. More abundant conditions, he enjoyed life a little more, until he felt extremely comfortable and delighted in the richness. He enjoys all the pleasures of life and gradually loses himself.
When the Billionaire suddenly stopped all his support, the farmer became shocked and could not accept the loss of the pleasures he was used to enjoying, and he collapsed at the request to buy back his land.
Just like in our lives, civilization brings a lot of conveniences to our lives: remote control devices, internet coverage throughout the house, entertainment services scattered around us…. This makes it easy for us to fall into a state of enjoyment and become attached to comfort. There is nothing wrong if we can enjoy the things that are already there from the growth of your life.
But if we cling to it, we will be limited to stagnation, laziness. At that time, our ability to endure gradually weakens, we gradually lose our inner strength and are easily knocked down by life’s challenges.
