Be Optimistic

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

“You are hired!” HR manager informed the applicant and added: “Give me your e-mail address”.

The man replied, “I don’t have a computer or an email!”

“I’m sorry,” said the HR manager. “If you don’t have an email, that means you do not exist.”

The man was very disappointed. He didn’t know what to do.

He only had $10 with him. He went to the supermarket and started a business of tomatoes with his $10. He doubled or tripled his money every day. Soon, he bought a cart, then a truck. In a very short time, he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles!

Five years later, the man became one of the biggest food retailers & decided to have a life insurance. He called an insurance broker and chose a protection plan. At the end of the conversation, the broker asked him for his email address. The man replied: “I don’t have an email.”

The broker was dumbfounded.

“You don’t have an email, and yet have succeeded in building an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an email?” he exclaimed.

The man thought for a while, and replied, “an office boy at Microsoft!”

Moral of the story:

If you just lost your job or just failed an Interview, don’t worry. Be Optimistic! Good days are on the way and something better is reserved for you.
