Personal development. A parable of sculptor

While passing through the city, a young boy heard loud sounds, something like clicking, rumbling, chipping. Curious, he followed the sounds and found a man striking a huge shapeless stone with a chisel and a hammer.

The boy paused for a moment, he wanted to ask the worker what he was doing, but he was so focused and so busy with his work that he didn't even pay attention to him.

The boy left, but he did not stop thinking about what he saw, so after a few days, he returned to the same place.

When he entered, he saw a beautiful angel instead of a shapeless stone. He stared and was amazed he could not believe it...

"How did you know there was an angel in that marble piece?" he asked the man with the chisel.

The man turned, looked him straight in the eye, and said, “There is an angel in all of us. All we have to do is take a hammer, and chisel, and chip off all those little pieces that don't look like an angel.
