PLEASE READ - hand full of GOLD or WATER?
There was a man on foot in a desert soon after his camel got sick and died. The camel was carrying much of his supplies but he emptied his bags to hold the treasure of gold he was searching for; therefore he only took with him a gallon of water, map, and empty bags. After a long day of walking in pure exhaustion, he mapped out how long his journey was. he had two options one, walk 15 miles to a dried up river full of gold and the another to walk 13 miles in the opposite direction to a running river of water which was also close to a small town. He had been thirsty for gold and the reason he was on this trip was to find the treasure of his dreams. He knew that if he reached the gold he would surely die of thirst but for many years he had been searching for this river of satisfaction. He decided that nothing would satisfy him but the gold so he walked 10 miles and found the dried up river. The gold was not as he expected it was buried in rocks and very difficult to retrieve. After an hour of digging out the gold, he soon collapsed and fell to the ground as the sun was beating on him, he had no hope of survival and in his last dying breaths, he only could think of water.
Many times in life we work so hard for something we want and when we are so close to getting it we lose all sense of logic and can only focus on the things we desire.
