Mother is flying a kite. Her son is watching her carefully. After some time son says “mom. Because of the string the kite is not able to go any further higher.”
Hearing this, the mother smiles and breaks the string. The kite goes higher and then shortly after that, it comes and falls on the ground.
The child is very dejected and sad.The mother sits next to him and calmly explains: “Son, in life we reach a certain level and then we feel that there are certain things that are not letting us grow any further like Home, Family, Friends, Culture etc.
We feel we want to be free from those strings which we believe are stopping us from going higher. But, remember son.”That our home , family, friends and culture are the things that will help us stay stable at the high heights .
If we try to break away from those strings our condition will be similar to the kite.”we’ll fall down soon…
As we soar high in our careers & personal development, we often take these strings for granted. Sometimes we even consider them as hurdles, but they are the ones that will sustain us in the long run.
