This is a post i found in one of the forums at work (i cant share that link).. Please read and share your thoughts, How true is it?
The Professor started his class by holding a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see & then asked to his students:-, “”How Much do u all think this glass weights?”
50 gms, 100 gms, 125 gms…., the students answered.
I really don’t know unless I weigh it, said the professor, But my question is :- What would happen if I held it UP like this for few minutes.??
“”Nothing – the student said.””
OKAY, what would happen if i held it up like this for an hour?”
the professor asked.
Our Arm would begin to ACHE, said one of the Students.
You are Right. what would happen if I held it for a Day?
Our ARM could go numb, or we might have severe muscle stress & paralysis & have to go hospital for sure, said another student.
All the students Laughed……
“Very Good. But during all this , did the weight of the glass change?” ask the professor.
No, was the answer.
Then what caused the arm ache & muscle stress? the student were now puzzled. what should i do now to get rid of the pain? ask the professor again.
“PUT THE GLASS DOWN”” said one of the student.
Exactly , said the professor.
“LIFE’s Problems are something like this, Hold them for a few minutes in your head & they would soon seems okay.
Think of them for a long time & they began to ache. Hold them for longer time & they will begin to paralyse you. you will then reach a point when you will be unable to do anything.
It’s important to think of the challenges & problems in your life. BUT even more important is to learn when to put down at the end of every day before you go to sleep.
That way, you are not stressed.——
You wake up everyday fresh & strong and are able to handle any issue, any challenges that comes your way !!!”
