#8 – The Fox and the grapes

One hot summer’s day, a Fox was strolling through an orchard till he came to a bunch of grapes just ripening on a vine on a lofty branch. “Just the thing to quench my thirst,” he thought. Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch. Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up, but with no greater success. Again and again, he tried after the tempting morsel, but at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air, saying: “I am sure they are sour.”

 

The story above is one of Aesop’s famed fables

 

The moral of it being that it’s easy to despise what you cannot get.

 

So you see, ‘sometimes’ the apparent negative vibes you get from people has naught to do with anything wrong with you, rather, it may be because there’s something you have that they cannot have.

 

In the same way, in every pursuit of yours, ambition or human likewise, strive to ensure that your disinterest any time it comes isn’t due to your inability to get those things.

 

In my opinion, it helps your perspective to always stay impersonal.
