A milkman who owned a few cows used to say this to his children when they were young.

Milkman:- When you all reach the age of 12 “I will tell you the secret of life”.

One day when the oldest turned 12, he anxiously asked his father.

Oldest Son:- What was the secret of life.

The father replied that he was going to tell him, but that he should not reveal it to his brothers.

Milkman:- The secret of life is that the cow does not give milk.

Oldest Son:- What are you saying? Asked the boy incredulously. 

Milkman:- As you hear it correctly, “The cow does not give milk, you have to milk it”.

Yes, You have to get up at 4 in the morning, go to the field, walk through the corral full of manure, tie the tail, hobble the legs of the cow, sit on the stool, place the bucket and do the work yourself.

That is the secret of life, the cow does not give milk. You milk her or you don't get milk.

Today the world generation thinks that cows GIVE milk. That things are automatic and free: their mentality is that if "I wish, I ask..... I obtained it."

They have been accustomed to get whatever they want the easy way...But No, life is not a matter of wishing, asking and obtaining.

The things that one receives are the effort of what one does... Yes, it's that simple

Happiness is the result of Efforts”.

Lack of effort creates frustration. So, remember to share with your children, from a young age, the secret of life.

So they don't grow up with the mentality that the government, their parents or their cute little faces are going to give them everything they need in life.

Always remember:

"Cows don't give milk. You have to work for it"
