Leading by example

It was approaching the New Year when resolutions are made. Nasrudin’s fat curate promised his wife he would lose weight by giving up chocolate, a pleasure he adored. The curate pleaded with Nasrudin to help him keep his resolution. “Very well,” said the Mullah, “Come back on March 1st and I will help you.” Dutifully, the curate kept his appointment two months hence and once again begged Nasrudin to help him give up chocolate. “Do not eat chocolate,” said Nasrudin. “Is that it?” asked the man incredulously. “Yes that is it.” “Why, then did I have to wait two months?” Nasrudin replied, “Because first, I had to give up chocolate.”
