Practice Everyday to Succeed – Short Inspirational Story

Short Inspirational Story Quotes


You have to be elite at your craft to achieve success. The people who practice every day can master their goal and hence are different from those who cannot do so. Here is a short inspirational story from Indian Mythology to emphasize “Practice” to achieve your goal.

While Most Are Dreaming of Success, Winners Wake-up And Practice Hard to Achieve it.

Short Inspirational Story of Practice

Once, Lord Indra got upset with Farmers, he announced there will be No rain for 12 years & you won’t be able to produce crops.

Farmers begged for clemency from Lord Indra, who then said, Rain will be possible only if Lord Shiva plays his Damru, but he secretly requested Lord Shiva not to agree to these Farmers & when Farmers reached Lord Shiva he repeated the same thing that he will play Damru after 12 years

Disappointed Farmers decided to wait until 12 years but one Farmer regularly was digging treating & putting manure in the soil & sowing the seeds even with no crop emerging.
Other Farmers were making fun of that Farmer. After 3 years all Farmers asked that Farmer why are you wasting your time and energy when you know that rains will not come before 12 years.

He replied “I know that crop won’t come out but I’m doing it as a matter of “practice”. After 12 years I will forget the process of growing crops and working in the field so I must keep it doing so that I’m fit to produce the crop, the moment there is rain after 12 years

Hearing his argument Goddess Parvati praised his version before Lord Shiva & said You may also lose the practice of playing the Damru after 12 years.
The innocent Lord Shiva in his anxiety just tried to play the Damru, if he could and hearing the sound of Damru immediately there was rain and the farmer who was regularly working in the field got his crop emerged immediately and others were disappointed.



Practice is the real mystique that will turn your dream into reality and you will be more flummoxing with tears of true happiness. Practice makes you perfect, and the more you practice the more confident you will be, and you will be able to work more skilfully, naturally, swiftly and steadily as described by Bruce Lee.

A deliberate effort to improve performance will forge a talent through thousands of hours of practice. Success has to do with the deliberate effort or deliberate practice in a focused environment. Practice is the mantra to success.
