What Makes You Want To Work Hard Is What Is Worthy
There once lived a priest who was extremely lazy and poor. He dreamt of becoming rich but was not ready to make any efforts and work hard for it. He used to beg for food and supplies.
One day, he received a pot of milk as alms. Happily, he went home with it. After drinking a little, he put the rest to curdle, thinking he would make curd from it. He kept the milk aside and fell asleep. Soon after, he started dreaming of how he could mint money with the milk. The curdled milk would become yogurt, from which he would churn butter and make ghee.
He then would sell the ghee and make a lot of money. And with it, he would buy fancy clothes and dwell in riches. While he was jolly well imagining all of this, he rolled over and accidentally broke the pot of milk! His dreams of going from rags to riches were shattered! If only he had not dreamt of easy money and worked hard instead, he could have fulfilled his dreams.
