How to believe in yourself story with moral

A long time ago, there lived a farmer in a village; he used to get early in the morning and go to distant springs to get clean water. For this work, he used to carry two big earthen pots with himself which he tied in a stick and hung on his shoulder on both sides. One of the pots was broken from somewhere and the other was just right. Because of this, the farmer was able to save only one and a half pots of water by the time he reached home.

This was going on for two years, the right pot was proud of the fact that all water reaches home and there is no shortage of water in it, while on the other hand, the broken pot used to be ashamed of the fact that it could bring only half the water and the farmer's hard work goes to waste. The broken pot started getting very upset thinking of all this and one day he could not live with it.

He said, I am ashamed of myself and want to apologize to you? Why? The farmer asked, what are you ashamed of? The broken pot reply sadly 'Maybe you don't know but I have a hole in one place, and due to this for the last two years.' I have been able to bring only half of the water instead of full water; this is a big deficiency in me. And because of this, your hard work is being wasted.

The farmer felt a little sad after hearing this from the broken pot and said, 'No problem my dear, I want you to see the beautiful flowers falling on the way while returning today.' The broken pot did the same, he kept looking at the beautiful flowers all along the way by doing this his sadness went away, but by the time he reached home half the water had fallen from inside him. He became disheartened and started apologizing again to the farmer.

The farmer said, 'Dear maybe you did not notice that.' On the way, all the flowers were on your side there was not even a single flower on the other side that's because I always knew what was lacking in you and I took advantage of it. I had sown the seeds of colorful flowers on the road on your side; you watered them little by little every day and made the whole road so beautiful. Today it is because of you that I and other people can see these beautiful flowers. Seeing these beautiful flowers everyone can be happy and forget their sorrows.

People offer these flowers in the temple and get peace of mind, they take home these flowers and make their home beautiful. If you were not broken, do you think this would have been possible? Don't think you are useless, you are not useless, you are worthy because you have become the reason for the happiness of thousands of people.



If we see in our life, we will see that sometimes we start feeling useless and worthless, but we forget that we all have some shortcomings in us. All of us have some flaws but these shortcomings and flaws make us unique. If we think positively we can turn our shortcomings into blessings like that farmer we should also accept everyone, as he is, and pay attention to his goodness. And when we do this even a 'broken pot' will become more valuable than a 'good pot'. If you like an article then share and subscribe Million-$-Knowledge.
