Journey From Zero To Hero

Once upon a time, there was a guy who was looking for a job; a job of any kind. He had been gone through many incidents in his life, he lost his parents at a very young age, he lost his house because of his father's debt. He used to spend nights on the road. He tried getting a job but, all his effort went worthless. One day, he gave it one more try and started asking for a job to nearby companies.

He entered inside a company and asked for conducting a round to recruit him. The receptionist agreed. After 2 days on the day of the appointment, he went again to get a job.

He entered inside the boss cabin, the boss turned around and gave him weird looks.

He felt bad. Nevertheless, he avoided and wished him. He was asked to sit down.

After 2 minutes of silence, the manager started firing questions like what is your name, where do you come from, he answered very well.

Then, the manager said-"tell me your email id"? Astoundingly, he looked at the manager.

He again repeated the same question- "tell me what is your email id"?

He replied-"Email id"?

What is this?

I never heard about this term.

Manager laughed and said- you don't even know what is email id and you're expecting I will give you this job. Really? In this era, you don't know what is email id, I'm shocked. How can be a person so stupid? You can leave.

He said-"sorry sir". I will do whatever you will say. I  really need this job. He said in louder voice-Leave! He stood up from there and left the place. For the next two days, he kept thinking like email id, what is this, I don't have this. I don't think anyone will offer me a job without this.

Then, an idea strummed his mind. He decided to do small jobs. He started washing plates in a 

restaurant. After 5 hours of this job, he joined another job to load cartons.

After a year, his financial conditions started improving. He stopped doing small jobs, he saved enough money and started his own business. After 5 years, he became very famous, he starting recruiting people for jobs in his company. He was very satisfied with his job.

One day, one of his company's friend came to him and asked him "give me your mail id". . .

He said- "I don't have any mail id".

He said, what are you saying, you don't have a mail id.

Just think about it, without a mail id, you have succeeded that much in life. . .

What if you will have a mail id?

You will be more successful.

Just imagine, if you have created your mail id where would you have been?

He smiled and replied-

If I had created an email id, I would be an employee in that manager's company. I would not be there in front of you. There would be no company of mine, I will work under someone for the rest of my life.

I'm blessed that I refused to create a mail id and went with my own decision.
