The parable of the performance desires

On the margins of the universe was one shop. A sign on it was not long ago - it was once claimed the hurricane, but the new owner did not become to beat because every local resident already knew that the store sells desires.

The range of the store was huge, here you can buy almost everything: huge yachts, apartments, marriage, vice-president of the corporation, money, children, favorite work, beautiful figure, winning the contest, big machines, power, success and much more . Not only sold life and death - was engaged in the head office, which was located in another galaxy.

Everyone who came to the store (and there are also those who wish that never went into the shop and left to sit at home and just wanting) first learned the price of his desires.

Prices were different. For example, a favorite work was worth giving up stability and predictability, ready to plan and structure your life of faith in their own strength and resolve yourself to work where like, and not where it is necessary.

The power cost slightly more: it was necessary to give up some of their beliefs, to be able throughout to find a rational explanation, to be able to deny others know his worth (and it should be high enough) to allow himself to say "I", to assert itself in spite of the approval or the disapproval of others.

Some prices seem strange - the marriage could get almost nothing, but a happy life was expensive: personal responsibility for your own happiness and ability to enjoy life, the knowledge of his desires, giving up desire to meet others, the ability to appreciate what it is, the resolution itself to be happy, the awareness of self-worth and importance, the rejection of bonuses "victim", the risk of losing some friends and acquaintances.

Not everyone who came to the store was ready to immediately buy desire. Some saw the price, just turn around and leave. Other long stood in thought, counting cash and wondering where to get more funds. Someone began to complain of too high prices, ask for a discount or interest sellout.

And there were those who were getting all their savings and receive a wish, wrapped in beautiful paper rustling. On lucky enviously watched other customers, the buzz that, the owner of the shop - they are familiar, and the desire got them just like that, without any difficulty.

Shop owner often offered to reduce prices in order to increase the number of buyers. But he always refused, since this would suffer and the quality of desires.

When the host asked if he was afraid to go broke, he shook his head and replied that at all times will be daredevils, ready to take risks and change their lives, to abandon the familiar and predictable life, able to believe in yourself, have the strength and the means to In order to pay for the performance of their desires.

And on the doors of the shop is already a hundred years hung ads: «If your desire is not fulfilled - it has not paid».
