The story of evolution started from the penguins. Wondering why? Let’s just think it started from these cute creatures.
One day, thousands of penguins were standing on an iced land, looking at their reflection from the waters. Not a single one of them thought of jumping into the water because it’s not the world they’ve been accustomed to. In their minds “It’s too scary to be there. I would not risk myself.” For them, staying on the ground is enough and they don’t mind what’s out there in the water.
But, one day, an anonymous penguin carelessly jumped into the waters and the rest of the penguins were all shocked. They waited for few hours to make sure whether he was alive or dead. Then the courageous penguin showed his face back into the air. And when he did, bringing with him a big fish between its beak,they were full of joy and excitement that they started to jump into the new world. By that time, they experienced another world which was way beyond what they could imagine.
And right at that very moment, evolution started. The evolution of mind.
This is a story I have heard from a friend and sounded like from the “Happy Feet” cartoon. It is inspiring and uplifting.
In order for change to happen, someone must start it first and be the pioneer. That person doesn’t have to be strong nor smart. He or she only needs to believe in his or her ability-to survive. Like what the books say, “Be the change you want to witness in the world.Believe that you can do it.”
The world is waiting for you to take the first step. Are you willing to take it?
