President Xi Jing Peng of China said :*
As a small child, I was very *selfish,* always grabbing the best for myself.🙄
Slowly, everyone left me and I had no friends. I *didn’t think* it was my fault and I criticize others.🤔
But my father gave me 3 sentences to *help* me in life.🤨
One day, my father cooked 2 bowls of noodles and put them. on the table.🤔
One had an egg on top while the other bowl had none on top.🙂
Then he asked me to choose a bowl of noodles 🍜 .
Because eggs were hard to come by those days…. I chose the bowl with egg ! 🙂🙂🙂
I was congratulating myself on my wise choice/decision and decided to wallop the egg….to my surprise as my father’s bowl of noodles had *two* eggs at the bottom of his bowl beneath the noodles ! 😀 😀
With much regret, I scolded myself for being too hasty in my decision.🤔🤔
My father smiled and *taught* me to remember that *what your eyes see may not be true*😇 .
He added that *If you make a habit of taking advantage of people, you will end up losing.*😇
The next day, my father again cooked 2 bowls of noodles: one bowl with an egg on top and the other bowl with no egg on top.
Again, he asked to choose the bowl I wanted,🤔
This time I felt smarter so I chose the bowl without any egg on top.🙂
Hmmmmmm to my surprise, there was not even a single egg at the bottom of the bowl !😱
Again, my father smiled and said to me, *My child, you must not always rely on experiences because sometimes, life can cheat you or play tricks on you*.
Never be too annoyed or sad, with situations,
*just treat experience as learning a lesson experience that cannot be
gotten from any textbooks.*🤔🤔🙂
The third day, my father again cooked 2 bowls of noodles, one bowl with an egg on top and the other with no egg on top.🤔🤨
He asked me to choose the bowl I wanted 🤔.
But this time, I told my father, *Dad, you choose first, you are the head of the family and you contribute the most to the family*.
My father was happy to choose for me.🙌🏽🙌🏽
He chose the bowl with one egg on top, but as I ate my bowl of noodles, to my surprise ! There were *two* eggs at the bottom of the bowl.👍🏽🙂
My father smiled at me with love in his eyes, he said *my child, you must remember that when you leave the Choice to God or your parents, they will always choose the BEST for you when you think for the good of others, good things will always naturally happen to you.*😇
I always remember these 3 sentences of my father !!!
