Body Building

There were two friends Dharam and Veeru,both of them were born in a village where Body Building was taken as a status symbol.

Veeru loved to build his body but Dharam was reluctant and had no interest in working out those muscles.
Still due to societal pressure he gets into the profession.

One day a renowned body builder comes to the village and lectures them over latest techniques of body building.
He told that if they worked on his preachings he'll take them to new heights,he would get them a brilliant job.
He gave them a few hand written scriptures and a few web URLs to go through.
He also promised to come and see their progress sometimes later in the year and fixed 12 DEC for the meeting.

Veeru just loved the lecture and from the next day he followed the tips and tricks told by that man.
He would browse the URLs one by one and then do the exercise regularly.
He was enjoying what he was doing ,gradually he started loving the PROCESS and results were there to be seen.

AS Dharam had no interest in all these workouts he thought that he would go through the scriptures and URLs just 2 Weeks prior to the day of meeting.He would not workout regularly.He knew the stakes were high and if he didn't work hard he would lose the offer.

Meeting with that person was a EVENT for Dharam and he thought that he would easily get the job because he would have read all the books anyways.

Meeting day finally came and no prizes for guessing who got the job.
Veeru made it because he took body building as a PROCESS .

Even if Dharam read all the scriptures, his bulging flabby tummy defied all his knowledge.

The renowned body builder told Dharam that TRUE SUCCESS is not an EVENT ,its a PROCESS.

You have to go thorough the Process .enjoy it and success will be all yours.

Another example...


A tourist visiting England's Eton College asked the gardener how he got the lawns so perfect.

"That's easy," he replied, "You just brush off the dew every morning, mow them every other day, and roll them once a week."

"Is that all?" asked the tourist.

"Absolutely," replied the gardener. "Do that for 500 years and you'll have a nice lawn, too."
