Analogies and Metaphors and the art of storytelling help us retain the information faster. The Analogy of the Pencil is one of those metaphors that once read we just simple can’t forget. Enjoy.
The Pencil Analogy
The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside and just before putting him into the box said these wise words
“There are 5 things you need to know,” he told the pencil, “Before I send you out into the world.
Always remember these 5, and never forget them. keep them in you heart and following them you will become the best pencil you can be.”
“One: You will be able to do and create many great and wonderful things in your life, but you must hold someone’s hand.”
“Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.”
“Three: You can and will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.”
“Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.”
“And Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write.”
The pencil understood and promised to remember. He went into the box with purpose in its heart.
Now replacing the Pencil with YOU and understand your true worth
Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be.
One: You will be able to Do and Create many great things, but only if you allow yourself to hold LOVE in Your Heart.
Allow all other human beings to access you for the many gifts you possess. None of us walk this planet alone, a quick Word in Anger can create a life time of hatred. And the kindness of Love can touch someone for the rest of their lives.
Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems in life, but you’ll need these uncomfortable situations to become a stronger person.
Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make. Always be humble enough to notice your mistakes and make right.
Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s on the inside.
And Five: With every situation you face and walk through, you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation, you must continue to do the best you possibly can.
Allow this parable on the pencil to encourage you to know that you are a special person and only you can fulfill the purpose to which you were born to accomplish.
Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that YOUR life is insignificant and cannot make a difference. You are as unique and amazing as the next person, every single one of us is born into this world equal, it is what we do with our life experiences that define are worth.
