5 Motivational and Inspiring short Stories

Check out these 5 Motivational and Inspiring short stories about life, stories that will make you smile.
1. Everyone has a Story in Life

A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…
“Dad, look the trees are going behind!”
Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity,
suddenly he again exclaimed…
“Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”
The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…
“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?”
The old man smiled and said…
“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.

Every single person on the planet has a story. Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.

2. Shake off your problems

A man's favorite donkey falls into a deep precipice; 
He can't pull it out no matter how hard he tries; 
He therefore decides to bury it alive. 

Soil is poured onto the donkey from above. 
The donkey feels the load, shakes it off, and steps on it; 
More soil is poured. 

It shakes it off and steps up; 
The more the load was poured, the higher it rose; 
By noon, the donkey was grazing in green pastures. 

After much shaking off (of problems) 
And stepping up (learning from them), 
One will graze in GREEN PASTURES.

3. The Elephant Rope

As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.

4. Potatoes, eggs, and coffee beans

Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.

Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot, and ground coffee beans in the third pot.

He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing.

After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.

He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup. Turning to her he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?”

“Potatoes, eggs, and coffee,” she hastily replied.

“Look closer,” he said, “and touch the potatoes.” She did and noted that they were soft. He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.

“Father, what does this mean?” she asked.

He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity– the boiling water.

However, each one reacted differently.

The potato went in strong, hard, and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak.

The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard.

However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.

“Which are you,” he asked his daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean? “

In life, things happen around us, things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is what happens within us.

Which one are you?

5. A dish of ice cream

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.

“How much is an ice cream sundae?”

“50 cents,” replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it.

“How much is a dish of plain ice cream?” he inquired. Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient.

“35 cents,” she said brusquely.

The little boy again counted the coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” he said.

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and departed.

When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.

There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – her tip.

like one good deed deserves another,—> IT IS THE LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE
There was a man taking a morning walk at or the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of 
starfish and when the tide receded, they were left behind and with the morning sun rays, they would die. The tide 
was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one and threw it into the water. He did that 
repeatedly. Right behind him there was another person who couldn’t understand what this man was doing. He caught up 
with him and asked, “What are you doing? There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What difference does 
it make?” This man did not reply, took two more steps, picked up another one, threw it into the water, and said, “It 

makes a difference to this one.”

You just need a trigger to change your life. History is full of inspirational stories about great people who started out as failures.
Albert Einstein was a slow learner at school. He was expelled for his poor learning ability. Today we know him as the father of modern physics. 

Abraham Lincoln, the renowned president of United States of America had a humble beginning. He failed many times while he attempted to run for office. He would not have tasted success, had he given up midway! 

J. K. Rowling, the renowned author of the Harry Potter series of books, began her writing career when she was going through the lowest period of her life. Jobless and divorced, Rowling used to write in cafes, while tending to her baby daughter, who would sleep by her side. She considered herself the "biggest failure I ever knew" but did not let her failure deter her spirit. 

Steve Jobs, the iconic creator of Apple computers, is instrumental in revolutionizing the technology industry. Jobs went through a period of struggle during his early days. Later he was fired from the company he created. Despite going through rough weather, Steve Jobs emerged successful, with many new companies and projects under his belt. He came back to Apple and turned around the company to make it a formidable leader in the technology industry.
I could go on and on about the greatest world leaders. Their stories inspire and electrify us. They are iconic figures of our society, who have the ability to motivate us. But how did they get there? What inspired the inspired personalities? What set them into a trajectory of greatness and immortality? 

In the case of J. K. Rowling, it was the fact that she had nothing to fall back on. She made failure the foundation on which she built her life. In the case of others such as Einstein, Lincoln, and Jobs, it was sheet grit and the ability to persevere. In the case of Oprah Winfrey, Walt Disney, and Henry Ford, well, they were not afraid of rejection. 

What is your goal? Do you aspire to be a great actor or singer? Do you want to make your mark in sports? Do you see yourself as an iconic business leader in the future? Whatever your goal, you can make it happen. You can be the next Bill Gates or Elvis Presley, if you set your heart on your goal. All you need is a push in the right direction. 

These are some of the best motivational quotes that I have collected after years of research and evaluation. They can fire you up, and recharge your spirit. Don't let obstacles dishearten you. They make your victory that much sweeter. Overcome your hurdles by facing them with determination. Make the most of these inspirational quotes. You can be a change leader by sharing these quotes with your friends.

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
