One day one of God’s messengers descended to the world and happened to meet an eminent monk who was telling fortunes for two boys. The monk pointed at one of the boys saying “Number One Scholar”, and at another one “Beggar”.
Twenty years later, the messenger came down to the world again. When he saw the previous two boys, he was puzzled about the outcome: the original “Number One Scholar” now became a beggar while the original “Beggar” turned into a Number One Scholar instead.
So the messenger went to ask God.
God answered, “I endow everyone with talent, which only decides one third of his destiny while the rest lies in how he grasps it.”
Life is just like this.
