Isaac Newton was a great English physicist and mathematician. It is said that once when he was sitting beneath a tree, an apple hit him on the head, and through pondering over this phenomenon he discovered the Universal Law of Gravitation.
This was like a shock treatment administered by nature. This event triggered a train of thought in Newton’s mind. He started thinking about why, when an apple fell, it came down and did not go up. This thinking led to the discovery of the Law of Gravitation. This law had always been there, but man had failed to discover it. Then, after a long time, nature hit man on the head and told him in the language of hammering: ‘O Man, discover the law that has remained undiscovered till this date.’
This was like shock treatment. Shock treatment is a law of nature. This shock treatment can be called a challenge. Every human being faces this kind of challenge in some way or the other. This shock treatment is a blessing in disguise, for it always acts for the betterment of the person in question.
If you are facing some problem in your life, in your job, business or family, do not be negative. Take it as a positive phenomenon. Then you will be able to understand the real message behind the challenge. And soon you will find that the challenge was a stepping stone in your life.
