YES I CAN – I CAN HANDLE THIS!
One day, two friends were playing near a well. One of them was 7, and the other was 8 years old. Suddenly, the older kid fell into the well. The other kid started to panic, wondering what he could do on his own to save his drowning friend. At this time of tension, he gathered himself up and looked for different ways he could pull the boy out. He then threw the bucket that was tied to a thick rope into the well and pulled out his friend all by himself. Although the kid who fell into the well was in shock and could barely breath, he thanked his friend for saving his life.
THE IMPORTANT QUESTION
From where did the 7 year old boy get the courage to save his friend life in such a critical situation?
A very good answer is that, ‘The only reason the young kid could exhibit such valor was that no one was around him to tell him that he couldn’t do it. There was nothing to discourage him.’
We all have the power to do, but all it takes us is to know that we can.
