Today I am going to share with you the same story on perspective that changes your perspective towards life for good.

Let’s get started.

Short Inspirational Story On Perspective Towards Life:

Story on perspective

Once upon a time there was an old lady who cried all the time.

Her elder daughter was married to an umbrella merchant while the younger daughter was the wife of a noodle vendor.

On sunny days she worried “oh no the weather is so nice and sunny no one is going to buy any umbrellas. what will happen if the shop has to be closed.

These worries made her sad she just could not help but cry.

when it rained she would cry for the younger daughter.

She thought “oh no my younger daughter

is married to a noodle vendor you cannot

dry noodles without the sun now there will be no noodles to sell, what should we do?”

As a result the old lady lived in sorrow every day.

Whether sunny or rainy she grieved for one of her daughters.

Her neighbors couldn’t console her and jokingly called her “the crying lady.”

One day she met a monk.

he was very curious as to why she was always crying.

she explained the problem to him.

The monk smiled kindly and said “Madam you need not worry, I will show you a way to happiness and you will need to grieve no more.

The crying lady was very excited.

She immediately asked the monk to show her what to do.

The monk replied it is very simple, you just need to change your perspective.

On sunny days do not think of your elder daughter not being able to sell umbrellas but the younger daughter being able to dry her noodles.

With such good strong sunlight she must be able to make plenty of noodles and her business must be very good.

When it rains think about the umbrella store of the elder daughter.

With the rain everyone must be buying umbrellas.

She will sell a lot of umbrellas and her store will prosper.

Finally the old lady saw the light.

She followed the monk’s instruction.

After a while she didn’t cry anymore.

Instead she was smiling every day from that day

on she was known as the smiling lady.


In our life everything is about our perspective.

There are always two sides to a coin, it depends on you what side you choose to look at it.

For the old lady actually nothing changed in her life, it still rained some days and still was sunny some days.

So it didn’t really make a difference to her daughter’s businesses but the thing that changed was SHE.

She changed her perspective and that is the secret to a happy life.
