Story of a Black dotShoaib Rasheed
Today we will discuss a very productive activity, such kind of activities should be performed in every institute by every teacher. We are going to discuss a story of “dot” today. It’s very interesting as well as very unique.
“One day a professor asked his students to prepare for a surprise test. He handed out the question paper, with the text facing down as usual. Once he handed them all out, he asked his students to turn the page and begin. To everyone surprise, there were no questions, just a black dot in the center of the page. The professor then said” I want you to write what you see there.” The students confused, got started on the inexplicable task. At the end of the class, the professor read each one of them aloud in-front all of the students.All of them with no exceptions, describe the black dot, trying to explain it’s position in the middle of the sheet, etc. After all had been read, the classroom silent, the professor began to explain. I’m not going to grade on you this, I just wanted to give you something to think about. No one wrote about the white part of the paper. Everyone focused on the black dot and the same happens in our lives, we always focus on the dark spots.Our life is a gift given to us by God, with love and care and we always have reasons to celebrate. However we insist on focusing only on the dark spots- The health issues that bother us. The lack of money, the complicated relationship with a family member, the disappointment with friends etc. He continued ” The dark spots of are very small compared to everything we have in our lives, but they are the ones that pollute our minds.Take your eyes away from the black spots in your life. Enjoy each one of your blessings, each moment that life gives you. Be happy and live a life with positive attitude.”
I got this message from a video I had seen few days ago. This message is very suitable for the people of current era. You cannot live a single moment with complete joy in your entire life if you’re not grateful for everything you have. It’s very short story but, it can change your life if you are going to adopt this simple advice.
