After about 20 minutes another group of gentlemen walked in and ordered for some food.
To his dismay, he noticed them get served first.
He watched as they began to eat and laugh heartily. He even overheard one of them brag about how he knew everyone at that hotel and how things moved fast for him here.
He felt he was being mocked. He contemplated leaving. But he had waited so long.
The waiter calmly told him, "Yours is a special order Sir, being prepared by the chief chef himself.
Their orders were prepared hurriedly by interns because the top chefs are busy with yours. That's why they came first. Please have some juice as you wait".
Unknown to him the owner of the hotel (who happened to be an old long lost friend of his) had seen him coming and wanted to surprise him and had made changes to his simple meal to make it an exotic meal.
He calmed down and waited.
Shortly after his meal was served by six waiters and he was waited on hand and foot and being made very comfortable.
The gentlemen at the other table were shocked. They couldn't stop staring. Suddenly they were the ones murmuring, asking why they didn't get that kind of service and meal.
So it is with life!
Some people are ahead of you and eating now, laughing at you about how they know people and how they're blessed with money and how they're enjoying life because of it.
You have been waiting long wondering why it’s taking so long to get your breakthrough, enduring mockery and humiliation. Maybe you have contemplated the unthinkable, gone through depression or suffered severe mental anxiety.
Do not worry!
The owner of the world has seen you. And doesn't want to give you simple meals like those laughing at you.
You've been waiting for long because yours is a special meal and takes time.
And only chief chef makes those!
Lesson: Wait for your meal and relax. When it comes, the laughing party will be silenced for good.
