Read this small story; Hope that makes a BIG change in YOU. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see and asked the students โ€œHow much do you think this glass weighs?”

’50gms!’….. ‘100gms!’ …..’125gms’ …the students answered.

“I really don’t know unless I weigh it,” said the professor, “but, my question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?”

‘Nothing’ โ€ฆ..the students said.

‘Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an HOUR?’ the professor asked.

‘Your arm would begin to ache’ said one of the student

“You’re right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?”

“Your arm could go numb; you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis & have to go to aย hospital for sure!” ventured another student and all the students laughed.

“Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?” Asked the professor.

‘No’. Was the answer.ย “Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?” ย The students were puzzled.

“What should I do now to come out of pain?” asked professor again.

“Put the glass down!” said one of the students

“Exactly!” said the professor.ย Life’s problems are something like this. Hold it for a few minutes in your head and they seem OK. Think of them for a long time and they begin to ache. Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything.

It’s important to think of the challenges or problems in your life, But EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to ‘PUT THEM DOWN’ at the end of every day before you go to sleep.ย That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh and strong and can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!

So, when you start your day today, Remember friend to โ€˜PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY! ‘


Everyone should smile. Life really isn’t that serious. We make it hard. The sun rises. The sun sets.
We just tend to complicate the process.
