Do you know about the Brothers Grimm?

In the 18th century, they wrote a book that contained 209 fairy tales, all of which had been passed down through countless generations and villages across Europe (particularly Germany) for hundreds of years.

Most of us know the classics — Rapunzel, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Little Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty.

But there are lots of gems too.

Old stories that very few people know about, almost forgotten.

One of my favorites is called “The Riddle”.

It tells the story of a young prince who, travelling through a treacherous land, happened upon a city that was ruled by a beautiful but proud princess.

Crucially, this princess was in want of a husband.

(Aren’t they all?)

However, she wasn’t necessarily holding out for a prince. She wanted to find a man whose intellect was equal to her own, a man she could admire.

Therefore, she made it be known:

If any man from the land could stand before her and set her a riddle that she could not solve, she would marry him immediately. However, if she could solve his riddle within three days she would have his head on a platter.

Nine suitors had already perished trying to win her heart.

Talk about high stakes!

This princess was a stunningly beautiful woman — so much so that so many men were willing to risk their life for a chance to make her their own.

Alas, they lost their heads. All of them except this one prince.

What’s the moral of this old story?

Sometimes, in life, when there’s something you want more than anything else in the world, you need to take a risk for the chance to make it yours.

As they say, he who risks nothing wins nothing.

Let me ask you something:

How badly do you want to be able to sleep again? Not just for a few hours, on and off, but all through the night, just like you did when you were a child.

Think about that for a moment.

Really think about it.

Is quality sleep a “nice-to-have” — something that will make your life just a little bit more pleasurable, like a new iPhone or a bigger TV?

Or, is it something that could change everything?

What would you give to make that dark cloud go away — to wake up with a clear head every morning, bursting with energy and free from pain?
