釣竿 Fishing Pole
An old man is fishing in the riverside, a child walked behind him and keep watching him. Later on, the old man already fished a whole basket of fishes because of his skillful.
The old man found the child to be very lovable, so desires to give him the entire basket of fishes.
The child shakes the head, the old man surprisingly asks: “why don’t you accept it?”
The child replies: “I want the fishing pole in your hand.”
The old man asks: “What do you want to do with the fishing pole?”
The child replies: “This basket of fishes will be eaten in a short period of time, but if I have the fishing pole, I can fish by myself and therefore I have an unlimited fishes for my life time.”
I though you may certainly say: That’s a very clever child. But that’s wrong. If he just wants the fishing pole, then he can eat none of the fishes. Because, he doesn’t know the fishing skills, it’s no use for only obtaining a fishing pole. The most important issue for fishing is that the fisher owns the fishing technique.
There are too may people though that s/he already owned the fishing pole, so doesn’t fear on the road even with the wind and rain, but as a result, they fall and tumble in the mud unavoidably.
Just like the child faces to the old man, he thought that he has unlimited fishes for his lifetime if he just owns a fishing pole;
Just like the staff faces to their boss, they thought that they have unlimited money roll into their pocket if they just sit in the office.
