What, you don't have email?!

I came across this interesting piece of read which has a wonderful message to imbibe. Don't look for its authenticity please, just enjoy the lesson..

Once upon a time, a jobless man applied for the position of "office boy" at Microsoft. The HR 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 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 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg 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 three times, and returned home with $60. The man realized that he can survive by this Way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late. It so happened that his smart work saw his money doubling every other day. Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles. And then, 5 years later , the man got recognized one of the biggest food retailers in the US.

Then one day, he started to think about his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance.

So 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!"

Moral of the story: Don't let people define what's success for you. Each of us has a unique gift of God, called talent. Use it. Believe in it. And soon you'd find yourself leading a path other's haven't even dreamed of yet.
