A MOUNTAIN TALE
A son and his father were hiking in the mountains one day.
Suddenly, the son fell to the ground and hurt himself then let out a scream: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”
Curious, the boy yells: “Who are you?”
He receives the answer: “Who are you?”
And then he screams to the mountain: “I admire you!”
The voice answers: “I admire you!”
Angered at the response, he screams: “Coward!”
He receives the answer: “Coward!”
The boy looks to his father and asks him: “What’s going on?”
The father smiles and says: “My son, pay attention.”
Then the father screams: “You are a champion!”
And the voice answers: “You are a champion!”
The boy is surprised, but he doesn’t understand.
The father explained it to his son in this way: “People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE. It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence. This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life. Life will give you back everything you have given to it.”
Your life is not an accident. It is a reflection of your choices.
