A son and his father are walking on the mountains.

Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams "Ahhhhhhhhhhh!"

To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain, "Ahhhhhhhhhhh!"

Curious, he yells, "Who are you?"

He receives the answer, "Who are you?"

And then he screams to the mountain, "I hate you!"

The voice answers, "I hate you!"

Angered at the response, he screams, "Coward!"

He receives the answer, "Coward!"

He looks to his father and asks, "Daddy, what is going on?"

The father smiles and says, "My son, pay attention."

The man screams, "You are a champion!"

The voice answers, "You are a champion!"

The boy is surprised, but does not understand.

Then the father explains, "People call this echo, but really this is life.
It gives you back everything you say or do.


  • Our life is a reflection of our actions.
  • If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart.
  • If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.

Life will give you back everything you have given to it.

Very clever! I love the "fable" and then the lesson drawn from it in the end was the last thing I expected (but very practical). Nice post. Keep up the good work!.
