Let's revisit the story of the greedy man named King Midas. While he was a kind man, he was particularly in love with wealth. So when he was granted one wish by Dionysus, without a moment's hesitation he said "I wish for everything I touch to turn to gold". Dionysus asked the king, "Are you sure?" The king replied, "Yes. I'm absolutely positive". Dionysus grandted his wish and the next day when he woke up, he touched the bed, his clothes, and everything turned to gold. He was so excited. He took all of his treasures and immediately placed them into his vault, collecting piece upon piece and counting up all of his wealth.
But then something terrible happened, because he forgot to deeply think about the wish and when he went to the garden to read a book, he was unable to because the moment he touched it, it turned into gold and he couldn't read it. Then he sat to have breakfast and the moment he touched the fruit and the glass of water, they turned to gold. He was getting hungry and he said to himself, "I can't eat and drink gold." Just about that time his daughter came running and he hugged her and she turned into a gold statue. There were no more smiles left.
The king broke out in tears, devastated over losing his daughter. Dionysus came back and asked the king if he was happy with his golden touch. The king said he was the most miserable man ever. Dionysus replied, "What would you rather have, your food and loving daughter or lumps of gold and her golden statue?" The king cried and asked for forgiveness. He said, "I will give up all my gold. Please give me my daughter back because without her I have lost everything worth having." So Dionysus said to the King, "You have become wiser than before" and he reversed the spell. He got his daughter back in his arms and the king learned a lesson that he never forget for the rest of his life.
So, the moral of the story is that distorted values lead to ultimate tragedy in the end. Wealth and money are not everything in this world and without your health of yourself and your family members you have nothing in this world. So, remember the story of King Midas when you sacrifice your relationships with your family for spending more time at the office. What really matters most to you in life? You can have all the toys, gadgets, and gold in the word, but will you have the respect and dignity of the people who matter most to you in this world? You often won't have a second chance like the King did, so make every moment count.
