The Fisherman

 

The Fisherman

One day a fisherman was lying on a beautiful
beach, with his fishing
pole propped up in the sand and his solitary line
cast out into the
sparkling blue surf.
He was enjoying the warmth of the afternoon sun
and the prospect of catching a
fish.

About that time, a businessman came walking down the beach,
trying
to relieve some of the stress of his workday. He noticed the
fisherman sitting on the beach and decided to find out why this
fisherman was fishing instead of working
harder to make a living for
himself and his family. “You aren’t going to catch many
fish that way,”
said the businessman to the fisherman. “You should be working
rather
than lying on the beach!”

The fisherman looked up at the businessman, smiled and replied,
“And
what will my reward be?” “Well, you can get bigger nets and
catch more fish!” was the businessman’s answer. “And then what
will my reward be?” asked the
fisherman, still smiling. The
businessman replied, “You will make money and you’ll
be able to
buy a boat, which will then result in larger catches of fish!”
“And
then
what will my reward be?” asked the fisherman again. The
businessman was beginning to get
a little irritated with the fisherman’s
questions. “You can buy a bigger boat,
and hire some people to
work for you!” he said.

“And then what will my reward be?” repeated the fisherman. The
businessman
was getting angry. “Don’t you understand? You can
build up a fleet of fishing
boats, sail all over the world, and let all
your employees catch fish for you!” Once
again the fisherman asked,
“And then what will my reward be?” The businessman was red with
rage and shouted at the fisherman, “Don’t you understand that you
can become so rich that you will never have to work for your living
again! You
can spend all the rest of your days sitting on this beach,
looking at the sunset.
You
won’t have a care in the world!”

The fisherman, still smiling, looked up and said, “And what do you
think I’m doing
right now?”
