There was a very wealthy and curious king. This king had a huge boulder place in the middle of a road. Then he hid nearly to see if anyone would try to remove the gigantic rock from the road.

The first people to passed by where some of the king's wealthiest merchants and counties. Rather than moving it, they simply walked around it. A few loudly blame the king for not maintaining the roads. Not one of them tried to move the boulder.

Finally, a peasant came along. His arms were full of vegetables. When he got near the boulder, rather than simply walking around it as the others had, the peasant put down his load and move the stone to the other side of the took a lot of effort but he finally succeeded.

The peasant gathered up his load was ready to go on his way when he Saw a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The peasant opened the purse. The purse was stuffed full of gold coins and a note from the king. The king's note said, the purse of gold was a reward for removing the boulder from the road.

The king showed the peasant what many of us never understand. Every Obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.
