Story of the Blind Boy

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: "I am blind, please help."

There were only a few coins in the hat. A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognised his footsteps and asked, "Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?" The man said, "I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way. "I wrote: 'Today is a beautiful day; but I cannot see it.'"

Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind.
The second sign reminded people how fortunate they were to have their sight. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Morals of the Story:

1. Be thankful for what you have.

2. Be creative and innovative-
Think differently & positively.

3. When life gives you 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.

4. Face your past without regret but handle your present with confidence and prepare for the future without fear.

5. Keep the faith and drop the fear.

6. It's a beautiful thing to see a person smiling, but more beautiful if you are the reason for the smile!

7. Faith is not only about everything turning out OK but more about being OK no matter how things turn out.
