Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the water close to Japan
has not held many fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population,
fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever. The farther the
fishermen went, the longer it took to bring the fish. If the return trip
took more time, the fish were not fresh.

To solve this problem, fish companies installed freezers on their boats.
They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the
boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste
the difference between fresh and frozen fish. And they did not like the
taste of frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower price.

So, fishing companies installed fish tanks . They would catch the fish and
stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin. After a little thrashing around,
they were tired, dull, and lost their fresh-fish taste. The fishing
industry faced an impending crisis!

But today, they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan . How did they manage?

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put
the fish in the tanks but with a small shark.

The fish are challenged and hence are constantly on the move. The
challenge they face keeps them alive and fresh!

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of
the time tired and dull? Basically in our lives, sharks are new challenges to keep us active. If you are steadily conquering challenges, you are happy.

Your challenges keep you energized. Don't create success and revel in it
in a state of inertia. You have the resources, skills and abilities to
make a difference. Put a shark in your tank and see how far you can really go!
