you may find that what you are always hoping to achieve, you may already

There was once an American businessman who was sitting by the beach in a
small Mexican village. As he sat, he saw a Mexican fisherman rowing a small
boat towards the shore and noticed that the fisherman has caught a
quite number of big fishes that is known to be a delicacy.

The American was really impressed and ask the fisherman, "How long does
take you to catch so many fishes " ? The fisherman reply " Oh, just a short

"Then why don't you stay longer at sea and you could catch even more?"
businessman was astonished.

The fisherman simply does not agree, "This is enough to feed my whole
" he says.

The businessman then asked "So, what do you do for the rest of the day

The fisherman reply " Well, I usually wake up early in the morning, go
to sea and catch a few fishes, then I would go back and play with my kids.
the afternoon, I will take a nap with my wife, and evening
comes,I will join my buddies in the village for a drink, we played guitar,
sing and dance throughout the night. My day was ever so complete and

The businessman does not agree with his way of life and offered a
to the fisherman. I am a PhD holder graduated from Harvard University,
specialises in business management. I could help you to
become a more successful person. From now on you have to spend more time at
sea and try to catch as many fishes as possible. And when you have save
money, you could buy a bigger boat and catch even more
fishes. As you go on, you will be able to afford to buy more boats, recruit
more fishermen and lead a team of your own. Soon you will be able to set-up
your own company, your very own production plant for
canned food and do direct selling to your distributors. At that time, you
have moved out of this village and to Mexico city, and then expand your
operation to LA, and finally to New York city, where you can
set-up your HQ to manage all your other branches. "

The fisherman asks, " So, how long would that take ? " The businessman
" About 15 to 20 years " The fisherman continued " And after that ? " The
businessman laugh heartily " After that, you can live like a
king in your own house, and when the time is right, you can go public and
float your shares in the Stock Exchange, by then you will be rich, your
will be coming in by the millions!! "

The fisherman ask " And after that ? " The businessman says " After that,
you can finally retire, you can move to a house by the fishing village,
up early in the morning and catch a few fishes, then
return home to play with the kids, have a nice afternoon nap with your
and when evening comes, you can join your buddies for a drink, play the
guitar, sing and dance throughout the night!! "

The fisherman was puzzled " Isn't that what I am doing now ?? "

So, what does one really hope to achieve in life, do we really need to
so hard in life ? What do you hope to accomplish in the end?

"The greatest thing you'll ever learn is to LOVE and be LOVED in
