There was a farmer in Africa who was happy and content. He was happy because he was content. He was content because he was happy. One day a wise man came to him and told him about the glory of diamonds and the power that goes along with them. The wise man said, "If you had a diamond the size of your thumb, you could have your own city. If you had a diamond the size of your fist, you could probably own your own country." And then he went away.
That night the farmer couldn't sleep. He was unhappy and he was discontent. He was unhappy because he was discontent and discontent because he was unhappy. The next morning he made arrangements to sell off his farm, took care of his family and went in search of diamonds. He looked all over Africa and couldn't find any. He looked all through Europe and couldn't find any. When he got to Spain, he was emotionally, physically and financially broke. He got so disheartened that he threw himself into the Barcelona River and committed suicide.
Back home, the person who had bought his farm was watering the camels at a stream that ran through the farm. Across the stream, the rays of the morning sun hit a stone and made it sparkle like a rainbow. He thought it would look good on the mantle piece. He picked up the stone and put it in the living room. That afternoon the wise man came and saw the stone sparkling. He asked, "Is Hafiz back?" The new owner said, "No, why do you ask?" The wise man said, "Because that is a diamond. I recognize one when I see one." The man said, no, that's just a stone I picked up from the stream. Come, I'll show you. There are many more." They went and picked some samples and sent them for analysis. Sure enough, the stones were diamonds. They found that the farm was indeed covered with acres and acres of diamonds.
What is the moral of this story? There are five morals:
1. When our attitude is right, we realize that we are all walking on acres and acres of diamonds. Opportunity is always under our feet. We don't have to go anywhere. All we need to do is recognize it.
2. The grass on the other side always looks greener.
3. While we are dyeing the grass on the other side, there are others who are dyeing the grass on our side. They would be happy to trade places with us.
4. When people don't know how to recognize opportunity, they complain of noise when it knocks.
5. The same opportunity never knocks twice. The next one may be better or worse, but it is never the same one.

There was a man taking a morning walk at or the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish and when the tide receded, they were left behind and with the morning sun rays, they would die. The tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one and threw it into the water. He did that repeatedly. Right behind him there was another person who couldn't understand what this man was doing. He caught up with him and asked, "What are you doing? There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What difference does it make?" This man did not reply, took two more steps, picked up another one, threw it into the water, and said, "It makes a difference to this one."
What difference are we making? Big or small, it does not matter. If everyone made a small difference, we'd end up with a big difference, wouldn't we?

( A moral story shared )
The big animals were playing a football game against the small animals. The score was sixty seven to nothing in favor of the big animals at halftime. At halftime the small animals had Lou Holtz come in and give a motivational speech to get them ready for a comeback. The small animals kicked off at the start of the second half. The big team took possession of the ball and it looked like more of the same for the second half for the small animals. The Zebra who was the quarterback for the big animals handed the ball off to the Buffalo who ran around the right end for a three yard loss. Everybody looked around but no one knew who made the play. On second down the Zebra handed off to the cheetah that tried to go around the left end but was stopped for a five yard loss. Everyone on the field looked around the field but still no one knew who made the play. On third down the Rhinoceros lumbered up the middle and was stopped on a dime at the line of scrimmage. It was fourth down and the big animals had to punt for the first time in the game. The coach of the small team called a time out and came on the field and asked the team "how are we doing this? Who made all those great plays? Who tackled the Buffalo, who tackled the Cheetah, who stopped the Rhinoceros"? The centipede held his hand up and said "I did". The coach said we could have used you in the first half where were you"? The centipede replied "Getting my ankles taped!"
Point: Sometimes we have to pay the price in the beginning to reap the reward in the end. It is called preparation.
