Found this story while browsing through some articles, and I thought it is worth sharing :
A son and his father were walking in the mountains. Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”
To his surprise, he hears the voice, somewhere in the mountain: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”
Curious, he yells: “Who are you?” He receives the answer: “Who are you?”
Angered at the response, he screams: “Coward!” He receives the answer: “Coward!”
He looks at his father and asks: “What's going on?” The father smiles and says: “My son, pay attention.” And then he screams at the mountain: “I admire you!” The voice answers: “I admire you!”
Again the man screams: “You are a champion!” the voice answers, “You are a champion!”
The boy is surprised, but does not understand. Then the father explains:
“People call this an ‘echo’, but really this is ‘Life’.
It gives you back everything you say (or do).
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart.
If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence. This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life. Life will give you back everything you have given to it.”
Your life is not a coincidence; it's a reflection of you.
