Let’s hear a tale about “THE STARFISH” together.
Once a man was wandering on a deserted beach on a lovely morning. The sun was shining and the sea looked amazing. As he strolled along the beach, he could see a man going back and forth between the surf’s edge and the beach. As he approached the man, he noticed that he was throwing starfish into the sea. The man noticed hundreds of starfish stranded on the sand brought by the tides.

The man was stuck by the apparent vanity of the task. There were hundreds of starfish on the beach and many of them were sure to perish as the sun grew stronger by the day. But the man continued the task of picking up starfish one by one and throwing them into the sea.
“I must ask, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” he asked as he approached the man throwing the starfish.
The man replied, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die soon.”
Observing the frugality of the task, the man said, “There are thousands of starfish stranded on the beach. There is no way you can throw all of them back into the surf. You can’t possibly make a difference.” The person looked at the man, stooped down, and picked up one more starfish, and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. He turned back to the man and replied: “It sure made a difference to that one!”

The value of the story: Even small acts of kindness and compassion can make a significant difference in someone’s life. The man throwing starfish back into the ocean, despite the overwhelming number of stranded starfish, demonstrates the importance of taking action and not underestimating the impact of individual efforts. It emphasizes that every positive action, no matter how seemingly insignificant, can have a profound effect on someone else’s well-being.
