A king wanted to pick the wisest man among his subjects to be his prime minister.
When the search finally narrowed down to three men, he decided to put them to the supreme test.
He placed them together in a room in the palace.
On the room door he had a lock installed that was the most advanced lock in the world.
His team of mathematical geniuses had taken ten years to develop and perfect it.
The candidates were informed that whoever was able to open the door first would be appointed to the post of honor.
The three men immediately set themselves to the task.
Two of them began at soon to work out the complicated mathematical formulas to discover the proper lock combination.
The third man, however, just sat down in this chair, lost in thought.
Finally, without bothering to put pen to paper, he got up, walked to the door and turned the handle…
The door opened his touch. It had been unlocked the whole time!
How many times in life do we make things more complicated than they really are?
Making up a story that’s not even true. Then, when we finally we make a move we discover…
The door was open the whole time! Sometime we just have to get out of our own way.
