Enjoy Your Life At All Times

Once a fisherman was sitting near seashore, under the shadow of a tree smoking his pipe. A rich businessman passing by approached him, and enquired as to why he was sitting under a tree smoking and not working. To this the poor fisherman replied that he had caught enough fish for the day.

Hearing this the rich man got angry and said: Why don’t you catch more fish instead of sitting in shadow wasting your time?

Fisherman asked: What would I do by catching more fish?

Businessman: You could catch more fishes, sell them and earn more money, and buy a bigger boat.

Fisherman: What would I do then?

Businessman: You could go fishing in deep waters and catch even more fish and earn even more money.

Fisherman: What would I do then?

Businessman: You could buy many boats and employ many people to work for you and earn even more money.

Fisherman: What would I do then?

Businessman: You could become a rich businessman like me.

Fisherman: What would I do then?

Businessman: You could then enjoy your life peacefully.

Fisherman: What do you think I’m doing right now?

Don’t wait for tomorrow to be happy and enjoy your life. You don’t even need to be rich or powerful to enjoy life. At every moment - LIFE SIMPLY IS - so enjoy it to the full.

“Your riches consist not in extent of your possessions but in the fewness of your wants”.
