A blind man had been waiting a while at a busy road for someone to offer to guide him across, when he felt a tap on his shoulder. "Excuse me," said the tapper, "I`m blind – would you mind guiding me across the road?" The first blind man took the arm of the second blind man, and they both crossed the road.
The first blind man was the jazz pianist George Shearing. He is quoted (in Bartlett`s Anecdotes) as saying after the event, "What could I do? I took him across and it was the biggest thrill of my life."
There are times when we think we cannot do something and so do not stretch or take a risk. Being forced to stretch and take a risk can often help us to reduce our dependencies…! But take only calculated risks.
