Be A Millionaire Without An Email

-tumblr-


A jobless man applied for the position of “office boy” at Microsoft Company.

The manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test.
“You are employed.” He said.” Give me your e-mail address and I’ll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start.”

The man replied “But I don’t have a computer, neither an email.”
I’m sorry”, said the 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 one dollar in his pocket. He then decided to go to the market and buy some tomatoes. He then sold the tomatoes in a street to street round. In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital.

He repeated the Operation three times, and returned home with five dollars.
The man realized that he can survive by this Way, and started to go every day earlier, and return late Thus, his money doubled or tripled every day. Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.
5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in town.
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 answered curiously, “You don’t have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an email?!!”

The man thought for a while and replied, “Yes, I’d be an office boy at Microsoft Company!”
Moral of the story:
M1 – Internet is not the solution to your life.
M2 – If you don’t have internet, and work hard, you can be a millionaire.
M3 – If you received this message by any means through the internet, you are closer to being an office boy, than a millionaire. Do not forward this stuff to me, I’m deactivating my email & going to sell tomatoes!

My thoughts?

1) One closed door, open up millions others.
2) Sitting around may get u what you think you want, instead of what you actually deserve.
3) The moral 3 (M3) I think is a joke :D
4) When one push you, you're getting closer to your dreams!
5) You can be somebody, instead of being just regular people.
6) Dare to take risks
7) Be unique! :)

Hi, great motivation story, in fact many of our forefathers were successful without any electronic aids. Today we are so dependent on them eg. cell phones, laptops and etc. Pls do drop by for my story for Halloween.
