A jobless man applied for the position of 'office boy'
at a very big firm. The HR manager interviewed him,
then a test: clean the floor. "You are hired" he said,
give me your email address, and I will 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 am sorry, said the HR manager, 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 at all. He didn't know what to do, with only
$10 US in his pocket.
He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10 KG
Tomato crate. He then sold the Tomatoes in a door to door round.
In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital.
He repeated the operation 3 times, and returned home with
$60 US. The man realized that he can survive by this way,
and started to go everyday earlier, and return late. Thus,
his money doubles or triples every day. Shortly later,
he bought a cart, then a truck, and then he had his own
fleet of delivery vehicles.
5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers
in the US. He started to plan his family's future, and decided
to have a life insurance.
He called an insurance broker, and chooses 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 been if you had an email?
The man thought for a while, and replied: an office boy!
The moral of this story:
1: Internet is not the solution to your life.
2: If you don't have internet and you work hard you can be a millionaire.
3: This man's biggest weakness had become his biggest strength.
