It all started one lazy Sunday afternoon
in a small town near Toronto in Canada.
Two school-going friends had a crazy idea.
They rounded up three goats from the neighborhood and painted the numbers
1, 2 and 4 on their sides.
That night they let the goats loose
inside their school building.
The next morning,
when the authorities entered the school,
they could smell something was wrong.
They soon saw goat droppings
on the stairs and near the entrance
and realized that some goats had
entered the building.
A search was immediately launched
and very soon, the three goats were found.
But the authorities were worried,
where was goat No. 3?
They spent the rest of the day
looking for goat No.3.
The school declared classes off for the students for the rest of the day.
The teachers, helpers, guards,
canteen staffs, boys were all busy
looking for the goat No. 3,
which, of course, was never found.
it did not exist.
Those among us who inspite of having
a good life are always feeling a
“lack of fulfilment”
are actually looking for the elusive,
Whatever the area of complaint or dissatisfaction, relationship,
job-satisfaction, finance, achievements, ……
An absence of something
is always larger than the
presence of many other things.
Let’s Stop worrying about goat No.3
n enjoy the life…
Life would be so much happier
without the worries…
And don’t let the non existent imaginary goat number 3 waste your time and happiness.
Enjoy life with what you have.

A little boy went to his old grandpa and asked, “What’s the value of life?”
The grandpa gave him one stone and said, “Find out the value of this stone, but don’t sell it.”
The boy took the stone to an Orange Seller and asked him what its cost would be.
The Orange Seller saw the shiny stone and said, “You can take 12 oranges and give me the stone.”
The boy apologized and said that the grandpa has asked him not to sell it.
He went ahead and found a vegetable seller.
“What could be the value of this stone?” he asked the vegetable seller.
The seller saw the shiny stone and said, “Take one sack of potatoes and give me the stone.”
The boy again apologized and said he can’t sell it.
Further ahead, he went into a jewellery shop and asked the value of the stone.
The jeweler saw the stone under a lens and said, “I’ll give you 1 million for this stone.”
When the boy shook his head, the jeweler said, “Alright, alright, take 2 24karat gold necklaces, but give me the stone.”
The boy explained that he can’t sell the stone.
Further ahead, the boy saw a precious stone’s shop and asked the seller the value of this stone
When the precious stone’s seller saw the big ruby, he lay down a red cloth and put the ruby on it.
Then he walked in circles around the ruby and bent down and touched his head in front of the ruby. “From where did you bring this priceless ruby from?” he asked.
“Even if I sell the whole world, and my life, I won’t
be able to purchase this priceless stone.”
Stunned and confused, the boy returned to the grandpa and told him what had happened.
“Now tell me what is the value of life, grandpa?”
“The answers you got from the Orange Seller, the Vegetable Seller, the Jeweler & the Precious Stone’s Seller explain the value of our life..
You may be a precious stone, even priceless, but, people will value you based on their financial status, their level of information, their belief in you, their motive behind entertaining you, their ambition, and their risk taking ability.
But don’t fear, you will surely find someone who will discern your true value.”
Don’t sell yourself cheap.
You are rare, Unique, Original and the only one of ur kind.
Your are a masterpiece because ur MASTER’S PIECE.
No one can Replace you.
Value the value..
