Introduction

Each one of us used to face problems in our lives and it is impossible to skip challenges of our path. There are two types of people in this world-first is those types of people who used to see problems during a challenging phase of life and second are those types of people who used to see opportunities during a challenging phase of life. When we see problems then problems used to become big and our road to success becomes very difficult but when we see opportunities then we get solutions to our problem very easily. Today we will talk about the great emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon Bonaparte was a French statesman and a great military leader who led many successful campaigns during the French revolution. He won many battles and ruled over the European continent during his lifetime but he was born in a very poor family in Corsica and due to his good analytical skills he got a scholarship and studied at the expense of the French king. After completing his education he got inducted into the French army. He won multiple wars and even saved the life of the French king during his stint in the French army. He became a hero of the French people and subsequently elevated to the position of emperor of France. Today we will understand his solution-oriented mindset with the help of a true incident of his life.

Inspirational story

One day when his army was marching towards the great Alps Mountains, an old lady came to him and told him that his army cannot go beyond the Alps Mountains and many people already tried in past but no one came back. Napoleon gifted his diamond necklace to the old lady and told her to communicate his story to everyone when Napoleon will come back after climbing the Alps Mountain. On this, the old lady passed her blessings to Napoleon. But after listening warnings of the old lady, his army came under pressure and denied the further movement. Napoleon asked from his army that anyone of you has seen the Alps mountain? Napoleon's army said that they do not know anything about Alps Mountain. Napoleon further said that we will decide to move ahead or not after seeing the Alps mountains. So he and his army started their voyage and during that voyage, they saw one mountain and his army asked from Napoleon that, “is it the Alps mountain ?" and Napoleon answered that Alps mountain must be very big and not like this small mountain. They together climbed that mountain and then they reached the plain ground. Napoleon army again asked, “when will we get to that Scariest alps mountain ?” Napoleon answered that we had already climbed those alps mountains.
