Father advised his son, “read a message inside two envelops when you are extremely sad or happy.”
Some years later, after having huge loss in business, son reads message in first envelop – Don’t worry, this time will pass, keep efforts continue. He was motivated, put best efforts and made business profitable.
Success in short time made him rude by thinking that “I am incomparable”.
Suddenly he recalled second envelop and lines were inside – Don’t be overconfident, this time will pass, be humble.
Moral: Neither your success nor failure is permanent; hence don’t overreact when facing the either one.
