A man once found a five-dollar bill. After that he always looked down when he walked along the street.
Over the course of the years, he found twelve hairpins, five paper clips, a ballpoint pen, one nickel, four pennies, and a very large assortment of gum wrappers.
But during those years he never saw a flower, a tree, or the smile of a passing stranger.
If we just look down at our problems, we will never succeed. Lift up your eyes!
