Back in Ancient China there lived a poor boy in a small village. Well, one day he went to a market in a nearby village without a coin in his pocket. He walked around for about 2 hours, just looking. Finally, he was about to leave when he saw a group of people watching a great magician.
The boy watched the magician in awe and after the show when everyone left, the poor boy just stood there. So, as the magician was packing up his things, he noticed the boy.
“Do you like my magic, boy?”
“Yesss,” replied the still mesmerized boy.
“Do you want to see more?”
The magician saw a pebble on the ground and took his magic finger and turned it into a gold nugget.
“Take this home to your family and you eat for a week.”
“Thank you…but I want more,” said the boy.
The magician laughed and and humored the boy. So he took a branch from nearby, used his magic finger and turned it into a golden rod.
“Here, boy, take this golden rod home and your family will eat for a month.”
“Thank you…but I want more,” said the little boy.
The magician laughed again as he saw a large boulder in the corner of his eye. So he touched the boulder with his finger and turned into gold.
“Here, roll this home to your family and you will eat for the rest of your days.”
“Thank you…but I want more.”
“Son, I have given you a golden nugget. I have given you a golden rod. I have even given you a golden rock so that your family can eat for the rest of your lives…what more could I give you?”
“I want…the magic finger.”
So, are you satisfied with your life…or do you want more? It’s up to you, but here is the million dollar question…
“I know you CAN do it…but WILL you?”
