Problems in Life|مشکلات زندگی

“177th story”

Ali lived in a village. His everyday work was to go to the woods and gathered broken branches to sell as firewood. He always tried to get home before dark as he was so afraid of wild animals.

One day when he was in the woods very far from home, the weather suddenly got dark and stormy. The blizzard didn’t let him see correctly, and he got lost. He was circling for hours. Two shiny eyes drew the attention that was staring at him.

He couldn’t see correctly, but he felt that it should be a stray dog. Ali held a thick branch and got ready to fight the dog if it attacks.

The dog attacked Ali, and in a tough battle, Ali could kill the wild, stray dog. He put the dog’s dead body on his shoulder to show his family how brave he was. He finally found his way to the village, when it was almost morning.

One of his neighbors saw Ali carrying a dead leopard on his shoulder. The neighbor screamed: “Ali killed a leopard!!!”

When Ali heard that he fought with a leopard, he fainted. Ali couldn’t see at that storm, the dog was a leopard.

Otherwise, he would have fainted right in front of the leopard and would easily be the leopard’s meal.

Problems in life are exactly like that. Start fighting with them, no matter how big they are. Don’t let fear stop you. You are more powerful than you think.
