Teacher: What would you do if you had 86,400 rupees and a robber snatched 10 rupees and ran away? *
Will you run after him and try to get back your stolen 10 rupees ?? Or will you keep your remaining Rs 86,390 safe on your way?
The students said: Ignoring the meager amount of Rs. 10, we will continue on our way with the rest of our money safe.
The teacher said: Your statement and observation are not correct. I have seen that most of the people chase the dacoits in a bid to get back those 10 rupees and as a result they lose the remaining Rs. 86,390.
The students looked at the teacher in surprise and said: Sir, this is impossible, who does that?
The teacher said: These 86,400 are actually the seconds of our day.
We waste the rest of our day by thinking, burning and grumbling for the rest of the day, based on a 10 second talk, or a 10 second resentment and anger. These 10 seconds also waste our remaining 86,390 seconds.
Learn to ignore things. Don’t let any of your temper tantrums take away your energy all day long.
Sorry, forget it and move on …. !!
