    The promise of the angel

    One day, an angel approached a man and told him that he would have a marvellous future.

    The promise of the angel

    You will be rich, famous and marry a beautiful woman and have a lot of children.

    However, the man waited and waited for the promise of the angel, and in the end

    the man died alone and poor.

    When the man arrived to the pearly gates of heaven, he recognized the angel and said:

    “Nothing you promised to me came true

    “I didn´t promise you anything said the angel. I only told you that you would have the

    opportunity to reach your goals in life”.

    The man was confused, yet the angel continued to explain him more things.

    “Do you remember that you had the idea to set up a business, but at the

    last moment you decided not to because you were afraid it would be a disaster

    and lose a lot of money?

    A few years later, another man set up the same business you had in mind, and now

    he´s a millionaire.

    And do you remember when there was a terrible earthquake in your city

    and you decided to stay home so that nobody would rob you.

    This was your chance of becoming famous if you had abandoned your home

    and setting an example to other people to leave their houses.

    And finally, do you remember the beautiful redhead that you were afraid to

    approach her because you thought she would reject you.

    She would have become your wife and mother of your children”

    Often in life, opportunties will come our way, but like this man, we don´t

    take advantage of them because as we are so afraid and insecure of ourselves,

    in can block us in making the right decisions.
