Once a eleven years old boy asked his mother, “if I work hard, will I be successful”?

The mother said, “definitely! hard work always pays”.

The boy started working hard in his studies and expected something good from it.

This way the school examination began. He wrote the paper well and was very happy. After completing all the papers, he asked his mother, “Am I going to do well in my exam?”

His mother replied, “If you have really work hard, it will pay”. He was very happy.

Within a week, his papers were shown. In the class he did not utter a word. He came from school and started sobbing. His mother asked him,”what happened  my child”? He could not answer anything.

After sometime he stopped crying and said,”you always lie, you are not telling the truth, hard work never pays”.

Mother immediately understood what the child wanted to convey. She said,

” My child, you did not understand what I convey to you, you should work without expecting the result. When you expect anything in the beginning , and then work hard , you always become unhappy . You have to plan for Hard work.

Expectation brings unhappiness. So always remember, Work is worship. Whichever work you are suppose to do, you do it whole heartedly. You need not worry for the result, it will come automatically. The child hugs his mother and said, “My mother is the best in the world”.
