Once upon a time, a battle was going on in Japan. One army was greatly outnumbered by army men of the enemy. General of the army with a smaller number of soldiers was confident that they could win that battle and decided to launch an attack. He called upon his lieutenant and asked him to prepare soldiers for the next battle.
Lieutenant called all the soldiers and announced the decision of General. Army men were ready to battle but they were filled with doubt knowing that they have been outnumbered by other army men. As commanded by General, Next day Lieutenant and all soldiers were all prepared to launch an attack on the enemy. General knew about the doubts of soldiers. So on their way to battle General made a stop at a religious shrine.
After everyone prayed, General stood in front of all army men with a coin in his hand and said, “I shall now toss this coin. If it is Heads, we shall win. If Tails, we shall lose. Destiny will now reveal itself.” As general threw the coin into the air, all watched intently as it landed on the ground. It was Heads.
Soldiers were overjoyed and were filled with confidence. They continued their way to battle. On the battleground, they vigorously attacked the enemy. In the end, they won the battle. After the battle, Lieutenant congratulated General and remarked, “We won. No one can change destiny.”
“Quiet right !!”, General replied as he showed the lieutenant the coin, which had heads on both sides.
Moral: If you question your abilities or do tasks keeping doubts in mind, then you are holding yourself back from success. Unlocking your beliefs, your confidence and encouragement can lead to more positive results.
Believe you can and you’re halfway there !!
