A Short Story

United Arab Emirates


This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do

it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because

it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that

Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did

what Anybody could have done

hmmm…...Interesting story. If there's someone really finish the job,  he'll probably become a leader.

 

Most people need to be told what to do and how, that's why they need a leader. So that everyone knows his duty and the fact of nobody does nothing will be over..

 

Then what about us?  Set up a goal and devote to it. Don't let anybody else tell us what we should do, coz we've already know…Innocent
