YOU WILL GET WHATEVER YOU DESIRE AFTER THIS | Two unsuccessful men and a monk story Buddhist stor

[Music] once upon a time in ancient china there lived a monk who was known for his ability to solve difficult problems one day he had two visitors who needed his advice both were polite young men and each insisted that the other should go first after some discussion they discovered that their questions were essentially the same so they settled on speaking with the sage at the same time one of the young men asked the monk master our problems are similar we are both low level employees being treated badly at work we get no respect at all and our employers constantly push us around can you please tell us if we should quit our jobs or not the mom closed his eyes and meditated at length the two young man waited patiently until finally the mock opened his eyes he gave them the answer in five words only a bowl of rice the two young men thanked the monk and departed they contemplated the answer as they walk back to the city after a while one of them broke the silence and said that was interesting what do you think what did the sage mean the other one was thoughtful he said well it is fairly obvious that the bowl of rice represents our daily meals i agree said the first young man i think he was telling us that the job is nothing more than a means to make a living yes when you come right down to it that's all we get out of the job just our daily meals and they went their separate ways one of them continued working at the same place and the other one submitted a letter of resignation immediately upon his return he went on to the countryside and took up farming after several years this young man achieved considerable success as a farmer he used what he had learned in the city to import high quality seeds the fruits and vegetables he grew became known as the best in the region he enjoyed not only great profits but also a reputation as an expert the young man who remained at work also did well it was as if he became a different person he took on difficult tasks and demonstrated an ability to handle adversity he rose up through the ranks and received one promotion after another until he became a manager one day the two of them met again by chance once they got caught up with each other they realized that they had taken two very different paths based on the exact same answer from the monk they were both wealthy and happy but which path was the correct one they were not able to understand how strange the manager said the master said same thing to us and we both heard it the same way then why did you quit job the farmer was also puzzled he said is not it obvious i understood his words immediately the job was nothing more than the means to get my daily meals so why force myself to stay in a horrible situation just for a bowl of fries quitting was obviously the right thing to do but why did you stay there the manager said i also think it should be obvious the job meant nothing more than a bowl of rice so why was i getting so worked up over it as soon as i understood this i realized that there was no need for me to get so upset i did not have to take the abuse heaped on me personally so of course i stayed there is not that what he meant the farmer shook his head and said now i am completely confused did he mean for us to take your path or my path let us go and see him again and get to the bottom of this so once again they presented themselves before the monk and explain the reason for their visit one of them said master as you can see we would really like to know the real meaning of your advice some years ago can you give us some insight again the hmong clothes decides the two men waited patiently as before after some time the monk opened his eyes and gave them his answer and again in five words and those five words were only a difference of thought if we see in our lives then we will find that like those two men we all have different paths to follow every person has the ability to do something special in a particular field all you need to do is to discover your passion and just follow it that monk said same words to both of them and both of them interpreted the words of the monk differently but both of them achieved the same result which was success wealth and happiness because both the men followed the point of the monk according to their interest and both got success in their field similarly if you also want to achieve success in your life then do not follow someone else's passion rather follow your own passion and do what you enjoy doing and unless you follow your passion you will not get success wealth and happiness [Music] [Applause] you
