Don't ever miss an oppourtunity

A young man wished to marry the farmer's beautiful daughter. He went
to the farmer to ask his permission. The farmer looked him over and
said, "Son, go stand out in that field. I'm going to release three
bulls, one at a time. If you can catch the tail of any one of the
three bulls, you can marry my daughter."

The young man stood in the pasture awaiting the
first bull. The barn door opened and out ran the biggest,
meanest-looking bull he had ever seen. He decided that one of the next
bulls had to be a better choice than this one, so he ran over to the
side and let the bull pass through the pasture out the back gate. The
barn door opened again.
Unbelievable. He had never seen anything so big and fierce in

his life.

It stood pawing the ground, grunting, slinging slobber as it eyed him.
Whatever the next bull was like, it had to be a better choice than
this one. He ran to the fence and let the bull pass through the
pasture, out the back gate.

The door opened a third time. A smile came across his
face. This was the weakest, scrawniest little bull he had ever seen.
This one was his bull. As the bull came running by, he positioned
himself just right and jumped at just the exact moment. He grabbed...
but the bull had no tail!

Moral of the Story : Life is full of opportunities. Some will be easy
to take advantage of, some will be difficult. But once we let them
pass (often in hopes of something better), those opportunities may
never again be available. So always grab the first opportunity.

Have A Nice Day :-)
