Short story explaining the value of life
Below is a short story explaining the real value of your life.
One day, a young kid questioned his father, “Dad, what’s the value of my life?”
His father instead of answering the gave him a rock and said, “Go to the market and sell this rock”. The father also instructed him “if anyone in the market asks the price of this rock, just raise the two fingers and utter nothing.”
The boy then rushed to the market and there he found a woman who was willing to buy that rock. She asked him the price.
“This rock looks pressure. How much does it cost? I’ll put it in my backyard garden.”
As instructed by the father, the boy didn’t say a word and just raised to fingers.
The woman said, ” Two dollars? I’ll definitely buy it.”
The boy went back to his father and told him a woman in the market wants to buy the rock for $2.
The father replied, Ok great. Now take this rock to the museum. Again do the same, if anyone wants to buy this rock, don’t say anything and raise your two fingers.”
The boy went to the museum and there he found a man interested in buying the rock. Again the boy didn’t say anything but raised his two fingers.
The man said, “200 dollars? I’ll buy it for sure.”
The boy couldn’t believe it. He ran back to his father and told him everything.
“Dad, a man in that museum wants to buy the rock for 200 dollars.”
The father then asked him to go to the stone market.
“Take this rock to the precious stone market. Show this rock to the owner and if he wants to buy it, don’t say anything but raise two fingers again.
The boy rushed to the stone market and showed that rock to the owner,
“Kid, where did you get this rock from? It’s one of the rarest rocks. I want to buy it. How much does it cost?”
The boy as instructed by his father didn’t utter a word but put up his two fingers.
The owners said, “I am ready to buy this rock for 200K dollars.”
The boy didn’t know what to reply back. So he ran back to his father and said,
“Dad, you won’t believe this, but the owner wants to buy this rock for 200K dollars.’
The fathers smiled and replied,
“Have you understood the value of your life now? Your value matters where you decide to put yourself. Your value depends on the people you surround yourself with, how you choose to put yourself among them. You might live your whole life, thinking you were just a 2 dollar rock, but with the right people around you, you can grow and make your value to 200K dollars. Everyone is a diamond, all we need is to polish ourselves and be with the people who understand our value.”
