A man started walking home from work and walked by a row of houses, each one seeming to have a dog. As he walked by each dog would bark at him, except for one dog. This house had a dog that just whimpered and moaned all the time, the kind of sound like it was in pain from something. He dismissed it and continued walking. The next day, the same thing – all the dogs barked at him except this one dog who whimpered, howled and moaned. This continued for a week. Finally the man became very concerned and knocked on the door of the whimpering dog to find out what was wrong.
He asked the woman who answered ‘What’s wrong with your dog? He keeps moaning and whimpering while all the other dogs are barking. Why doesn’t your dog bark like all the others?’ the woman replied ‘Oh, well he’s actually sitting on a nail’
‘What? You’re dog is sitting on a nail? Why doesn’t he get off?’
The woman replied ‘I guess it doesn’t hurt enough yet’
How many of us are like that? Whining and complaining about things in our life, but not willing to do anything about it. How many of us complain about not enough money, but are unwilling to upgrade our skills, look for a new job, look for extra work, or otherwise. Even worse, when we don’t take responsibility or any action we attract other people who are also stuck in a cycle of helplessness. And then we can all agree that life isn’t fair, and there is little we can do about it.
But what if something as simple as Feng Shui could show you how to create lots of exciting new possibilities?
Would that be something that might interest you? Or do you want to go on, sitting on your nail?
