Just talking does not help us. We definitely have to act.

 Two boys often went with their father to collect wood in the forest. Once their father said: "Children, go get wood by yourself!" "That's right, Dad," said the boys.  "What if the car breaks down, who will fix it for us?" "If your car breaks down, son, call out trouble."She will do it for you. The two boys listened to their father. Harnessed the oxen. They went to the forest. Chop wood. They loaded the car well. You left. Won't you, their car broke down in the middle of the road. The boys stopped and started shouting: "No Trouble , No Trouble!" Come fix our car! They shouted, they shouted, no one called them. It was getting dark, and there was no trouble yet. At last the younger boy said: Father, this damned trouble will not come. It got dark already. Let's get on our own and fix our car as much as we can! The two boys took the ax and the adze. They bent down and a click here, a click there fixed the car. When they left, their father asked them: "Well, how did you spend your time in the forest? " "Leave it, Dad!" they said. Our car broke down in the middle of the road. We screamed, screamed the cursed trouble, we cleared our throats, but she didn't call us. We saw that he would not come. We took the ax and the adze and repaired the car as best we could. "There, my son, this is trouble!" said their father. "You called her, and she was with you. " Since there was no one to fix your car, you fixed it yourself. In other words, your misfortune has fixed it. The lesson is that in life sooner or later we have to help ourselves. By taking actions that benefit ourselves. Just talking does not help us. We definitely have to act.
