The missing Goat

The missing Goat

It all started one lazy Sunday afternoon in a small town. Two school-going friends had a crazy idea.

They rounded up three goats from the neighborhood and painted 1, 2 & 4 on their sides. That night they let the goats loose inside their school building.

The next morning, when the authorities entered the school, they could smell something was wrong. They soon saw goat droppings on the stairs and near the entrance and realized that some goats had entered the building.

A search was immediately launched and very soon, the three goats were found.

But the authorities were worried, where the Goat No. 3 was? They spent the rest of the day looking for goat No. 3

Gradually there was a panic and frustration. The school declared classes off for the students for the rest of the day.

The teachers, helpers, guards, canteen staff were busy looking for the goat No. 3, which of course, was never found. Simply because it did not exist!


Those among us who in spite of having a  good life are always feeling a ‘lack of fulfilment’ are actually looking for the elusive, missing, non-existent goat No.3. So, instead of making the most of what we have and focusing on our strengths, we worry about the missing piece and curse our shortcomings.

Do the best you can with what you have and be grateful for what you get.

Stop worrying about Goat No. 3 and you will be happy….
