A Short Story on Self Belief

There was a grand city named Prabhaspuram and its king was Prabhas Kumar. Prabhas Kumar was a very clever, courageous king and a brave warrior.

The people of that city were very happy and prosperous, and in the greed of this glory, King Bhim Singh once attacked this small city.

Bhimsingh had a huge military force, Bhimsingh had around 1 lac soldiers and on this side Prabhas Kumar had only 25 thousand soldiers.

Prabhas Kumar may have less military force but he was a true warrior, so he faced the adversity with his full force and jumped into the battlefield.

But Prabhas Kumar's army disintegrated in front of Bhim Singh's great army. Prabhas Kumar's army somehow finished the first day but all his soldiers were killed.

Prabhas Kumar's military force was completely broken mentally, was defeated and he was now assuming that on the day of tomorrow he would not be able to stand in front of Bhim Singh's great army and now it is impossible to avoid this defeat.

Prabhas Kumar was a king as well as a brave warrior. He was not going to give up so easily, he knew that Bhim Singh may have four times more soldiers than us, but if we will fight with the confidence of victory, If we believe in ourselves and fight, then this battle can definitely be won.

But Prabhas Kumar knew that their military morale was lost, they mentally accepted defeat and if they would go to the field tomorrow with the fear of defeat they will surely get defeated.

So to overcome this objection, King Prabhas Kumar made strategy, he called the commander and told that I am going to our Guru Maharaj Shivprakash to find a solution to how we face this disaster. And went where Shivaprakash had his ashram.

And then in the middle of the night, came back with a gleaming sword and a large trunk full of water, and as soon as he came, he ordered the commander to call our warriors here right now.

Everyone wondered why the king had called them in the middle of the night, after everyone had gathered, the king announced that my brave warriors we are now sure to conquer battlefield tomorrow.

Then further he told that I went to Guruji to wish for our victory and he has told me that God has decided that Prabhaspuram's victory in this war is sure.

He has given me an invincible sword and this holy water as the blessings of God and sprinkle this water on all our war weapons and then all our weapons will also become invincible.

After this announcement, all the soldiers dipped their sword in the water pot one after the other and now all the soldiers woke up with great self-confidence and started feeling invincible with their whole body.

Now he was sure that tomorrow in the battlefield, he will rip enemies with his invincible swords and will win this war.

And it happened the next day, all the warriors of Prabhaspuram fought with their lives, fought as if they could never give up.
Each warrior ripped off ten warriors of Bhimsingh and won the losing battle.

Everyone returned to the city and everyone celebrated the whole night.

Guruji too heard the news of victory on the second day, then come to the city to congratulate the king.

The commander and the soldiers started shouting Guruji's name on seeing Guruji and thanked Guruji for saving them from this objection.

On hearing this, Guruji said that this victory has been due to you, you have faced this disaster with great courage in the battlefield, so how can this victory be my reason.

When the commander heard this, no, no, Guruji, this victory has been due to your invincible offerings only, if you did not give us that invincible holy water at that time, without it all our weapons were useless, but with that blessing from you our All weapons become invincible, so this victory is yours.

Guruji understood what has happened.

He smiled where this victory is neither mine nor yours, this victory belongs to our King Prabhas Kumar and your self-belief.

The commander asked how was that Guruji?

Then Guruji told that Neither your Maharaj Prabhas Kumar came to me and nor I have given any blessings.
They have adopted this trick only to raise your morale, Self Confidence.

When the commander asked again, wasn't there as much of God as ours? So did God not even ensure that we will win this war or not??

Guruji said not at all, your victory and defeat is not because of God but you ensured yourself, as if you fought in the battlefield without fear, you won with surety and won therefore.

You won because your king had cleverly filled the courage, self-confidence and faith in you, so this victory is for your king and your self-belief.

This story is a great example of self-belief, morale and self-confidence and from this story it is clear that our victory is in our hands and not in the line of luck.

Our victory is in our faith, if we think that we can do it then we will do it anyway, and if we are a loser by heart, have already succumbed to the circumstances, then the defeat is also sure .

There are some examples where people who have done impossible work have

shown it possible by their self-belief.

*300 warriors fought in front of over 1 lakh soldiers.

*Dasaratha Manjhi dug up the entire mountain alone.

*Jadav Molai single-handedly turned the barren land into a forest.

*Jack Ma became China's richest person despite repeated rejections and failures.

All such examples have been written in history with golden letters, where humans have won by just and only their self-confidence, Morale and self-belief.

Always believe in yourself that you too can do whatever you want, raise your Morale, Self Belief and always make sure that I am not a common man but a superman with super power.
Remember this is your belief, this is your attitude will make you win and will make you champion.
