A trick to find anything

Once upon a time a man lost his watch in the barn. It was no ordinary watch because it had sentimental value for him. After searching for hours in the hay; he could not find it so he called a few children from the neighbourhood to loo for the watch. He promised them that the boy who found it would be rewarded.

Hearing this, the children hurried inside the barn, and full of excitement they scoured the place. Hours passed by and the children went through the entire stack of hay but still could not find the watch. Just when the farmer was about to give up looking for his watch, a little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance. The farmer looked at him, he had lost all hopes but the boy’s enthusiasm and confidence made him think, “Why not? After all, this kid looks sincere enough.”

So the farmer sent the little boy back in the barn. After a while the little boy came out with the watch in his hand! The farmer was both happy and surprised. He asked the boy how he succeeded where the rest had failed. The boy replied, “I did nothing but sit on the ground and listen. In the silence, I heard the ticking of the watch and just looked for it in that direction.”

Moral: A peaceful mind can think better than a worked up mind. Allow a few minutes of silence to your mind every day, and see, how you can hear the faintest call of destiny!
