Don't Change the World

Once upon a time, there was a king
who ruled a prosperous country.

One day, he went for a trip to some
distant areas of his country.
When he was back to his palace, he complained
that his feet were very painful, because it was the
first time that he went for such a long trip, and the
road that he went through was very rough and stony.

He then ordered his people to cover every road
of the entire country with leather.
Definitely, this would need thousands of cows' skin
, and would cost a huge amount of money.

Then one of his wise servant dared himself to
tell the king, "Why do you have to spend that
unnecessary amount of money ?
Why don't you just cut a little piece of leather
to cover your feet?"

The king was surprised, but he later agreed to
his suggestion, to make a "shoe" for himself.

There is actually a valuable lesson of life
in this story :
to make this world a happy place to live,
you better change yourself - your heart;
and not the world.
