Attract Money- Learning from a 3000 year old story

Attract Money- Learning from a 3000 year old story- Suresh Padmanabhan

There is one story in childhood which I heard from my Grandmother. This story is from the popular Aesop’s Fables, credited to Aesop a slave and a story teller who lived in Greece about 620 and 560 BCE. This story hence is as old as 3000 years.

Read the story first, then we will speak about Money.

THE GRAPES ARE SOUR from The Aesop’s Fables

Once upon a time, there was this hungry fox who was roaming around here and there searching for food. Because of hunger, he was feeling weak and tired. Fortunately, he came to a garden where he saw a grape-vine laden with bunches of juicy grapes.

The fox looked at the grapes, with its mouth watering and longing eyes. He jumped high to grab the grapes, but as the bunches were high, failed miserably. So he sat down for a while to take some rest. On feeling refreshed, he jumped again as high as he could, to get at the grapes. But he failed this time too. He tried quite a number of times but failed each time.

Forced to give, he just walked away and instead of accepting his failure, he remarked “the grapes are sour”
