Glass of Water Motivational Story

Best Moral Short Story

A professor began the class holding a glass full of water in his hand. He lifted it up and showed it to all the students and asked, “How much do you think the glass will weigh?”

50g….100g…125g…the students answered.

“Until I weigh it, I can’t tell its exact weight”. The professor said, “But my question is something else:-

“What will happen if I hold this glass like this for a while?”

“Nothing” … said the students.

“Well, what if I keep lifting it like this for an hour?”, asked the professor.

“Your hand will start hurting”, said one student.

“You’re right, what will happen if I carry it like this all day?”

“Your arm may go numb, you may have severe muscle tension, paralysis, and you may have to go to the hospital for sure”… said one student, and everyone else laughed…

“Very good, but did the weight of the glass change during this time?” The professor asked.

The answer came.. “No”

“Then why did there come pain in the hand and tension in the muscles?”

The students were astonished.

Then the professor asked, “Now what should I do to get rid of the pain?”

“Put down the glass,” said one student.

“Exactly,” said the professor.
