    A weary traveller sat down to rest in the shade of a tree,
    not knowing that the tree he chose was magic:
    " The Wish-Granting Tree."

    Seated on the hard ground, he thought how pleasant it would
    be find himself in a soft bed. Instantly, a bed appeared before
    him. Astonished, the man climbed onto the bed, thinking that
    the height of happiness would be to find a young beautiful girl
    by his side, massaging his sore legs. Instantly a young girl
    appeared and began massaging him.

    "I'm so hungry," the man said to himself. "Having something
    to eat now would be a great pleasure." Instantly a table appeared
    laden with a delicious feast.

    The man rejoiced and began eating and drinking to his heart's
    content. His head spun a little and his eyelids grew heavy as
    the wine took effect. He stretched out on the bed, thinking about
    the wonderful events that had taken place on that extraordinary
    day.

    "I'll sleep for an hour or two," he thought. "The worst that
    could happen would be if a tiger wandered by while I'm asleep."
    Instantly a tiger appeared and devoured the poor man.

    You have a magic tree inside you, waiting to grant your wishes.
    But be careful! The same tree can also make your negative thoughts
    and fears come true. At the very least it will be influenced by
    your negative thoughts, so that the good things you wish for do
    not happen.

    That's what worrying can do.

    I wish with all my heart that you lead a life free of worry,
    negative thoughts and fear, in the shade and comfort of your
    personal Wish-Granting Tree.

    Hi Cheer,

    This article makes me :) . It's a lovely story that reminds us of the root cause to failure. I guess we all learn to stop fearing the Tiger and start enjoying that good sleep.
