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, & 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 & doubled his capital.
He repeated the operation 3 times & returned home with $60 USD. The man started to go everyday earlier & returned late. Thus, his money doubled or tripled everyday. Shortly later, he bought a cart, then a truck & 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 & decided to have a life insurance.
He called an insurance broker & 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 & 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 & replied: “An office boy!”
Don’t be discouraged if something is not in your favor today. Better opportunities are waiting ahead. (academictips.org)
