The Inspiring Story
The Inspiring Story – 80th Level is more about people who have left their passion and succumbed to someone’s desire or want of money. I always want to become an Author, but I was greedy too. Greedy to become the millionaire, travel the world and live a celebrity lifestyle. And a mad run for money indeed made me rich, with loads of internal churning that stressed me up more. I still want to be famous and millionaire, I mean who would not want it, but today when I am pursuing my passion of writing, I am at peace with my today, while I dream and plan to have all that I want.
There were once 2 brothers who lived on the 80th level. On coming home one day, they realize to their dismay that the lifts were not working and that they have to climb the stairs home.
After struggling to 20th level, panting and tired they decided to abandon their bags and come back for them the next day. They left their bags then and climbed on. When they have struggled to the 40th level, the younger brother started to grumble and both of them began to quarrel. They continued to climb the flights of steps, quarrelling all the way to the 60th floor.
They have realized that they have only 20 levels more to climb and decided to stop quarrelling and continue climbing in peace. They silently climbed on and reached their home at long last. Each stood calmly before the door and waited for other to open the door.
And they realized that the key was in their bags which was left on the 20th floor.
The story is reflecting on our life…many of us live under the expectations of our parents, teachers and friends when young. We seldom get to do the things we really like and love to and are under so much pressure and stress that by the age of 20, we get tired and decided to dump this load.
Being free of the stress and pressure, we work enthusiastically and dream ambitious wishes. But by the time we reach 40 years old, we start to lose our vision and dreams. We began to feel unsatisfied and start to complain and criticise. We live life as a miser as we are never satisfied. Reaching 60, we realize that we have little left for complaining any more and we began to walk the final episode in peace and calmness
We think there is nothing left to disappoint us, only to realize that we could not rest in peace because we have an unfulfilled dream… a dream we abandoned 60 years ago.

Well, once you decided you want to do what you always want to do, you will surely find your way. And yes, age has nothing to do with fulfilling your dreams. Colonel Sanders of Kentucky started KFC at 65. And you know KFC though you might not know where Kentucky is on earth. Stop regretting and start following your dreams.
Dreaming is necessary to know what you want, but to reach your destination you have to be happy and content with the present. Read here the story of a Mexican Villager who is just content with all that he has.
