In every obstacle there’s an opportunity

There’s an old legend of a king who had a boulder placed on a highway and left there to see if anyone would remove it. A number of important people came by and squeezed past, complaining about the way the government was failing to keep the roads clear. But then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. He laid down his burden and after much pushing and straining, he rolled the rock out of the way. Then, as he bent down to pick up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying where the boulder had been. The purse was full of gold coins plus a note from the king indicating that it was there for whoever removed the boulder from the road. That man learned something that most of us fail to understand: that in every obstacle there’s an opportunity, but only if we’re prepared to deal with it.
