    Motivation Story

    A man was walking down the beach at sunset. As, he walked along, he saw another man in the distance. He noticed this man kept leaning down, picking
    up something and throwing it out into the water, again and again. As, he
    approached even closer, he noticed that the man was picking up starfish that
    had been washed up on the beach. He was throwing them back into the water
    one by one.

    Puzzled, he approached the man and said,” Good Evening. I was wondering what you are doing."
    "I'm throwing these starfish back into the ocean. You see, its low tide and
    all these starfish have been washed up onto the shore. If, I don't throw
    them back into the ocean, they'll die up here from lack of oxygen."

    "But, there must be thousands of starfish on this beach. You can't possible
    get to all of them. And, don't you realize this is probably happening on
    hundreds of beaches all up and down this coast. Can't you see that you can’t possibly make a difference?"

    The man bent down and picked up yet another starfish, and threw it back into
    the ocean. With a smile he replied, "Made a difference to that one!!!”

    Just remember, no matter how small the deed it really does makes a difference,
    Make a difference today. Do something nice for someone else, and you will get pleasure.

    That is a nice story with great motivation.
    So true you might not be able to save all the starfishes but atleast a few of them is for sure.
