The Goldfish Tank A short story about seeing opportunities in life

A boy had a goldfish. And the goldfish bowl got dirty with dirty water.So the boy approached his mother and asked “mom how should I clean this?” So his mom told him to fill the bathtub with clean water and move the fish there. And that’s with the boy did.

After a few minutes the boy came back to his mom and asked – “mom how come the fish keeps swimming around in small circles, when there is so much space in the bathtub?”

So his mom answered: “this is what the fish is used to, so he thinks he’s still in that small space”.

And that’s how we humans live our life very often. We’re so used to living a certain way that we miss a bigger opportunity, even when it becomes available to us right in front of our noses.
