Once, a professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it.
He held it up for all to see and asked the students,
‘How much do you think this glass weighs?’
‘1 pound!’ ….’2 pounds!’ …..’3 pounds!’ ……the students answered.
Professor – What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?’
Students – ‘Nothing’
Professor – ‘OK what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?’
One of d student – ‘Your arm would begin to ache’
Professor – ‘You’re right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?’
Another student – ‘Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis; have to go to hospital for sure’ & All the students laughed.
Professor – ‘Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?’
Student – ‘ No,
Professor – ‘Then what caused the arm ache; the muscle stress?
Instead, what should I do?’
The students were puzzled.
‘Put the glass down’ said one of the students.
Professor – ‘Exactly!’
‘Life’s problems are something like this. Hold them for a few minutes in your head; they seem OK.
Think of them for a long time; they begin to ache.
Hold them even longer; they begin to paralyze you.
You will not be able to do anything.’
It is important to think of the challenges in your life, but EVEN MORE IMPORTANT to ‘put them down’ at the end of every day before you go to sleep.
That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh, strong, can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!
So Remember friends – PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY!
