The Present is an engaging story of a young man’s journey to adulthood, and his search for The Present, a mysterious and elusive gift he first hears about from a great old man.
This Present, according to the old man, is “the best present a person can receive.”
Later, when the young boy becomes a young man, disillusioned with his work and his life, he returns to ask the old man, once again, to help him find The Present
The old man responds, “Only you have the power to find The Present for yourself.”
So the young man embarks on a tireless search for this magical gift that holds the secret to his personal happiness and business success.
It is only after the young man has searched high and low and given up his relentless pursuit that he relaxes and discovers The Present—and all of the promises it offers.
Anytime you are unhappy in The Present and want to enjoy The Present more, it is time for you to learn more from the past. It will also help to create the meaningful future.
You cannot change the past, but you can learn from it. When the same situation arises, you can do things differently and become happier, more effective and successful today.
