One day he was attacked by his enemies, after a tough battle he got defeated and banished to the far side of the country. Many years passed, he tried to win back his throne but faced failure every single time. One day, he was sitting in a cave thinking about giving up and stay banished for the rest of his life. Suddenly he noticed a spider trying to climb a rock. Seemed like, it was facing difficulties to climb and every time coming back right where it started. Robert was not paying any heed to the spider but after the third time, it caught his attention. He was observing the spider’s next move. The spider was unable to climb the rock but it didn’t give up. Eventually, it was able to climb it after 9th attempt. We all know what happens next, it inspired Robert Bruce not to give up and after a long final battle, he won back his kingdom. Now what is the moral of this story? The defeated king was on the verge of accepting his defeat and giving up. What made him to give it one last try?
