Businessmen and Fisherman: Story That Will Teach You a Lot

There was once a businessman who was walking along the beach near the small Brazilian village, he saw a fisherman sitting under a tree and smoking his cigarette and enjoying the beautiful sight that was in front of him.

When the businessman asked why he sits under a tree and smoking and not doing anything, the fisherman answered that he caught enough fish for one day.

Hearing this rich man angrily said: Why do not you catch more fish rather than sitting there in the shade and wasting your time?

The fisherman asked: What would I do with that fish?

Businessman: You could sell the fish. And when you save enough money, you could buy a bigger boat.

Fisherman: What would I do then?

Businessman: You could go fishing in deeper water and catch more fish, earn more money.

Fisherman: What would I do then?

Businessman: You can buy a lot of boats and hire more people to work for you and thus earn more money.

Fisherman: What would I do then?

Businessman: You could become a rich businessman like me.

Fisherman: What would I do then?

Businessman: And then to be able to enjoy your life.

Fisherman: Is not that what I am doing now?

Moral: You don’t have to wait for tomorrow to be happy and to enjoy life. You do not have to be rich, to enjoy life. Life is just a moment and needs to be lived completely.
