Small Story To Make You Work Hard - "The Easier Way May Actually Be the Tougher Way"

in life •  2 years ago 

Once there was a lark (Bird) singing in the forest. A farmer crossed by the lark and the lark stopped him and asked, "What do you have in the box and where are you going?" The farmer replied that he had worms and that he was going to the market to trade them for some feathers.

The lark said, "I have many feathers. I will pluck one and give it to you and that will save me looking for worms."

The farmer gave the worms to the lark and the lark plucked a feather and gave it in return.

The next day the same thing happened and the day after and on and on until a day came that the lark had no
more feathers. Now it couldn't fly and hunt for worms. It started looking ugly and stopped singing and very soon it
died.

What is the moral of the story?

The moral is quite clear what the lark thought was an easy way to get food turned out to be the tougher way after all.
Isn't the same thing true in our lives? Many times we look for the easier way, which really ends up being the tougher way.
They are people who want to get a benefit without paying for it. They are looking for freebies. By and large, sometime or the other, most of us have been guilty of being a freeloader. This is typically seen in associations and organizations. Most members are inactive. They want and get the full benefit of the effort of the active ones.
