Do not waddle through life – the duck story

This is a story about a little town of Ducks. Every Sunday the ducks waddle out of their houses and waddle down Main Street to their church. They waddle into the sanctuary and squat in their proper pews. The duck choir waddles in and takes it place, then the duck minister comes forward and opens the duck Bible (Ducks, like all other creatures on earth, seem to have their own special version of the Scriptures.) And then the duck minister starts to read to them:

“Ducks! God has given you wings! With wings you can fly! With wings you can mount up and soar like eagles. No walls can confine you! No fences can hold you! You have wings. God has given you wings and you can fly like birds!” All the ducks shout “Amen!” After the sermon ended all the ducks stayed and talked about the powerful message they have just heard. The minister felt pride and joy. After the discussion ended all the  ducks waddled home.                        


Lessons from this story:

  • Like the ducks in the story we are reminded in life multiple times that we have the tools and knowledge to create a better life for ourselves and our loved ones. But still we do not implement what we know. No knowledge or skill has meaning if it is not put into action.
  • Motivation, motivational videos, motivational seminars or books will not help you if you do not act on what you have learned. Knowledge is worthless without action.
