Rich Dad / Poor Son

  1. Somewhere on the net....

    One day. a father and his rich family took his young son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose to show him how poor people can be. They spent a day and a night in the farm of a very poor family.

    When they got back from their trip the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"
    "Very good, Dad!"
    "Did you see how poor people can be?" The father asked.
    "And what did you learn?"

    The son answered, "I saw that we have a dog at home and they have four. We have a pool that reaches the middle of the garden; they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lamps in the garden, they have the stars. Our patio reaches the front yard, they have a whole horizon.”
    His father was speechless.

    His son added, "Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we are!"
    Isn't it true that it all depends on the way you look at things? If you have love, friends, family, health, good humour and a positive attitude toward life, you've got everything! You can't buy any of these things. You can have all the material possessions you can imagine, provisions for the future, etc., but if you are poor in spirit, you have nothing!

    Is that a ladder in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
  4. If I was the dad, I would say, "ok, son, you can live on the farm if you feel it's so much better there."
