THIS RACE CALLED LIFE
Once upon a time , there was a young athletic boy , hungry and desirous for success , for whom winning was everything and success was measured just by winning .
One day , the boy was preparing himself for a running competition in His small village , himself and other young competitors , and a large crowd usually gather to witness the sporting spectacle including an old wise man .
The race commenced , looking like a level heat at the finishing line , but sure enough the boy dug deep and called on his determination , strength and power , he took the winning line and was first , the crowd was ecstatic and cheered and waved at the little boy, but the wise man remained still and calm expressing no sentiment , the boy was proud and felt important .
Again and again and again the boy continue to win all his competitors, he felt so much proud and felt important like no one is like him , and also the wise man kept still and calm watching the boy as he progress.
Suddenly the wise man fixed a race between him and "elderly frail lady and a blind man". , he was amazed , the race kick , before his two competitor could stand to run he has reach the final line , nobody cheered for looking those two deformed competitors struggling to run. The wise man met the boy and told him," RACE AGAIN AND THIS TIME FINISH TOGETHER ".
