A short story
A jobless man applied for the position of ‘office boy’ at a very big company.
The employer interviewed him, then a test: clean the floor.“You are hired.” – the employer said. “Give me your email address, and I’ll send you the application to fill, as well as when you will start.”
The man replied, “I don’t have a computer, neither an email.”
“I’m sorry,” said the employer, “if you don’t have an email that means you do not exist. And who doesn’t exist, cannot have the job.”
The man left with no hope. He didn’t know what to do, with only $10 USD in his pocket.
He then decided to go to the supermarket, bought a 10kg tomato crate, then sold the tomatoes door to door. In less than two hours, he succeeded and doubled his capital.
He repeated the operation 3 times and returned home with $60 USD. The man realized that he could survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and returned late. Thus, his money doubled or tripled everyday. Shortly later, he bought a cart, then a truck, and then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.
Five years later, the man’s company was one of the biggest food retailers. He started to plan his family’s future, and decided to have a life insurance.
He called an insurance broker and chose a protection plan. When the conversation was concluded, the broker asked him his email. The man replied: “I don’t have an email.”
The broker replied curiously, “You don’t have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Do you imagine what you could have done if you had an email?”
The man paused for a while, and replied:
“An office boy!”
Don’t be discouraged if something is not in your favor today. Better opportunities are waiting ahead. Broken bridges does not mean we cannot swim the ocean, we beat the current, flow with the tide and conquer her waves, because greater is he that is in us than he that is in them, giving heed to our inner spirit yields the best fruits most especially when we are in friendship with God. If God be for us who can be against us.
Lack of material things, lack of comfort, finance, gadgets and etcetera does not determine our future. Not everyone that has an email is successful, yet there are uneducated people that rule the elites.
Believe in yourself today, don’t give up, I expounded this from my heart of hearts to tell you that you too can be the Greatest. Faithful Loves you.
