“A young girl and her father were walking along a forest path. At some point, they came across a large tree branch on the ground in front of them.
The girl asked her father, “If I try, do you think I could move that branch?” Her father replied, “I am sure you can, if you use all your strength.”
The girl tried her best to lift or push the branch, but she was not strong enough, and she couldn’t move it. She said, with disappointment, “You were wrong, dad. I can’t move it.”
“Try again with all your strength,” replied her father.
Again, the girl tried hard to push the branch. She struggled, but it did not move.
“Dad, I cannot do it,” said the girl.
Finally her father said, “Young lady, I advised you to use ‘all your strength’. You didn’t.”
“You didn’t ask for my help.”
