The Mountain Story

"The Mountain Story”
(Author unknown)
A young son and his father were walking along a high mountain ridge in the middle of a long chain of mountains. Suddenly the boy trips and falls, hurting himself in the process. The boy reflexively let’s out a painful scream: AAAHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!
To his complete surprise, he hears a voice repeating somewhere off in the distance of the mountains: AAAHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!
Curious he yells out: “Who are you?”
He immediately receives the answer: “Who are you?”
Angered by this response, he screams: “COWARD!!!!”
Just as quickly he receives back: “COWARD!!!!”
Even more upset now he yells out: “I HATE YOU!!!”
In return, he quickly hears: “I HATE YOU!!!”
Puzzled, he looks to his father and asks: “What’s going on Dad?”
The father just smiles and says: “My son, pay attention and you might learn something.”
And then the father screams to the mountain: “I admire you.”
The voice quickly answers: “I admire you.”
Again the man screams out: “You are a champion.”
The voice answers: “You are a champion.”
The boy is completely surprised, but still does not understand.
Then the father explains: “People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE my son. It will always give you back everything that you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, then create more love in your heart.
If you want more competence on your team, then improve your own competence.
This relationship applies to everything, in and out of sports, in all aspects of life.
Life will always give you back everything that you have given to it.”
