A story a lesson...

Billy is a 8 yr old boy.


On his birthday, His mum bought him a box of board game - MONOPOLY!

He was so excited and everyday after school he will ask his grandma to teach him and play with him.  

Every time he play the MONOPOLY, he keep losing to his grandma... but he never give up! He continue to practice and practice... until one day he finally beats his  grandma!

Yea At last Billy won!

After winning his grandma, Billy decided to find a new challenger... He decided to go over to his best friend Tommy's house.

First time Billy play with Tommy, and not even half an hour Tommy beats Billy in the Monopoly game... 

Billy never give up, he continue to ask grandma about the skills of playing and keep practicing with his grandma! 

After two months of hard practicing, Billy decided to play with Tommy again. This time Billy manage to ruled over Tommy, and Tommy's properties and Monopoly Cash is totally wiped off by Billy!  

Here comes Billy jumping and cheering happily:" I won I won".  He ran back to his grandma and report this achievement to his grandma.


Billy's grandma smile at Billy, she paused and say:" I forgot to mentioned this...  


Did you know after you win the game, after the game ends... all the little houses, all the money, all the properties will all go back into the MONOPOLY box?   :P



The lesson of the story...  Its good that we should never give up easily. Perseverance will bring us success... Practice makes perfect!
 

What are we aftering in this world? Are we going for something that will last? or are we going for something that will fade away? Be wise to sow a seed on something that will last but not the temporary wealth on this earth!  ;)
