You, Too, Could Move a Mountain With a Chisel
When you think of doing the impossible, what comes to mind?
Getting your dream job? Finding your soulmate? Solving world hunger?
How about moving a mountain with handtools?
It has been done. By one man.
It took him a number of years, but in doing so he greatly improved the lives of his family and village.
And you know what? You could do the same kind of thing. If you wanted to.
It Takes Devotion
Dashrath Manjhi, a laborer from Bihar, wanted his people to have access to doctors, schools, and jobs.
Armed with only a hammer, chisel, and crowbar, he carved a road through the 300-foot mountain that isolated his village from the nearest town.
He did the impossible:
(If you are viewing this in an email, click here to watch the video on Youtube).
One word comes to mind when I view this: devotion.
When you are 100% devoted, you can do the ”impossible.”
You – Yes YOU – Can Make a Difference
Contrary to popular belief, one lone person can make a tremendous difference in people’s lives.
How, you ask? Well, let’s boil it down:
- Dashrath showed us that by using even simple tools, people can literally move mountains. When there is a will, there is a way. Some of the greatest feats in the history of humanity have been accomplished by people who “rose to the occasion.” Can you think of some?
- Dedicating yourself to helping others is key to rising above your own limitations. Dashrath was moved to help his wife get to the village. And others as well. You can be sure when the going got rough, he thought of them and became inspired.
- You can have a permanent impact on the lives of those who come after you. Think about how many generations of people will now benefit from Dashrath’s digging. The quality of life of his great-great-great grandchildren will be higher because of what he did. And note that in the video, they still talk about him as if he is alive, in a way. He has a living legacy.
This has everything to do with buying life insurance.
When you purchase a policy, you are devoting yourself to the welfare of others.
With this devotion, you can find a way to fund the policy.
And so you will leave a legacy of caring – and inspire others to in turn become devoted to their loved ones.
What Mountain Will You Move?
We are each facing a mountain that prevents us from getting what we need in life. From what those we love need in life.
Sure, we can climb it. But it would still be there to impede others.
Better we should move it so all can proceed safely.
