A long time ago, a king placed a large rock blocking a road. He then hid to see if anyone would remove the tremendous rock. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants came through the road, but simply avoided the rock and went around it. Many of them simply blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none of them did anything to get the big rock out of the way. A peasant then came down the road carrying a load of vegetables. As he was approaching the rock, he put his vegetables on the floor and attempted to move the rock out of the way. After struggling for a while, he was successful in removing it. As he picked up his vegetables, he noticed a wallet was laying on the floor, right where the rock had been placed. The wallet contained many gold coins and a note from the king stating that the gold coins were for the person who would successfully remove the large rock from the road. The peasant at that time learned something that all the others didn’t understand. Each obstacle presents an opportunity to improve one’s condition.
