The valuabe massage from the above story is that : in undergoing our life, most of time we work without great spirit, all done as usual. The disability to know our real inner selves result in disability to develop the best potenciest we have, unable to set the target and purposes of life. and aven if we do have dreams, without knowing our true self all those dreams will only live shortly. Struggling withou knowing our own true self and without having confidence is a strugle without destination and therefore it will be easily swayed by temptation and hindraces. (taken form Andrie Wongso)

Knowing your true self through the potenciest that are in herent each of us.
Have courage to set down your goals.
Have faith and confidence that you can be successful!
Just like the little tiger that finally finds his true essense.
Have courage to fight and realize yours!

English can make you do all you want to be"
