THE TWO BROTHERS


This is a story of two brothers.
One was a drug addict and a drunkard who frequently beat up his family. The
other one was a very successful businessman who was respected in society and
had a wonderful family. Some people wanted to find out why two brothers from
the same parents, brought up in the same environment, could be so different.
The first one was asked, “How come
you do what you do? You are a drug addict, a drunk, and you beat your family.
What motivates you?” He said, “My father.” They asked, “What about your
father?” The reply was, “My father was a drug addict, a drunk and he beat his
family. What do you expect me to be? That is what I am.”
They went to the brother who was
doing everything right and asked him the same question. “How come you are doing
everything right? What is your source of motivation”? And guess what he said?
“My father” When I was a little boy, I used to see my dad drunk and doing all
the wrong things. I made up my mind that that is not what I wanted to be.”
Both were deriving their strength
and motivation from the same source, but one was using it positively and the
other negatively.
What perspective are you using
your experiences.
