In ancient times, 
a king had 
a huge boulder 
placed in a roadway, 
then he hid 
and watched to see 
if anyone would remove it. 

Some of the kingdom's 
biggest merchants and courtiers 
came by and simply 
walked around the boulder. 

Many of them 
loudly blamed the king 
for not keeping the roads clear, 
but none of them did anything 
about getting the big stone 
out of the way. 

Then a peasant farmer came along, 
carrying a load of vegetables on his back. 

When he came to the boulder, 
he laid down his vegetables 
and began trying to move the boulder 
to the side of the road. 

After much struggling and straining, 
he finally succeeded. 

As he was picking up his vegetables, 
he noticed a purse lying in the road 
where the boulder had been. 

The purse contained 
many gold pieces 
and a note from the king 
indicating the gold 
was for the person 
who removed the stone 
from the roadway. 

The farmer had learned 
what many others 
have learned since: 

Every obstacle 
presents an opportunity.
