The Fox and the Grapes

Once upon a time, a hungry fox came upon a vineyard. 

As it saw the juicy, round grapes hanging in a bunch, the fox drooled. 

He leaped high but never reached for them. Telling himself that it must be sour, he left. 

Having no food to eat that night, he slept on an empty stomach.

Moral of the Story: We make excuses when something is too difficult to attain. Instead of working hard for it, we tell ourselves that it’s probably not that great.
