Once upon a time there were two farmers, namely Anil and Manu. They used to farm in the morning and spend the evening with their family.
One day, while both of them were tilling their farms to sow the seeds for the next season, they found a big bag of gold. They divided all the gold equally among themselves.
Anil purchased a big vault and kept all his gold inside it. On the other hand, Manu decided to invest his gold to make more money out of it.
Prior to farming, he had worked in a nearby restaurant for a short period of time and realized that he had good cooking skills. Thus, he invested all his money after selling his share of gold and bought different vegetables and fruits. Everyday after farming, he began making various dishes and delivered it for free to his neighbors. Initially people didn’t like it much but provided him suggestions on how to improve the dishes.
Being a constant learner, the suggestions proved to be vital, and he learned the likes and dislikes of the people living in his locality. Thus his dishes became better day by day. Finally, after a relentless hard work of 2 months, he finally prepared a new dish that became an instant hit. People started craving for it and soon the demand grew more than the supply. Therefore, he hired an unemployed man to work at his farm and some more people to prepare the dishes at his stall.
Unlike others, Manu didn’t stop here. He worked day and night to prepare more such dishes and in a year’s time his business grew by leaps and bounds.
Finally after 2 years, Anil had the same amount of gold whereas Manu risked his wealth and due to his sheer determination, hard work and never give-up spirit, he had a chain of restaurants and had become a millionaire.
MORAL: DETERMINATION, HARD WORK AND NEVER GIVE UP SPIRIT ARE ALL THAT IS REQUIRED TO BE SUCCESSFUL
