In an ancient times, there was a poor couple who used to live in a small house. Surprisingly, a man would spend his whole day reading books & history while woman used to work for some money. One day after getting tired, woman said to him Why do you always keep reading these junk books who havent given you anything ever? Why dont you go outside and do something productive, so that we can get out of this poverty. A man listened to her patiently, closed the book, stood up & went into the market. He asked a passerby Who is the richest man in this city? The stranger looked at him astonishing & said Are you new to this town? Everybody knows the richest mans place is just aside the market glittering with golden tiles. The poor man went to his home & entered his drawing room. Fortunately, richest Sultan was sitting there with his friends. The poor man said, O Sultan, the richest of all times, I want you to lend me 10,000 dirhams & I will pay you back within two years in future. Sultan looked at him & smiled while asking his servant to hand him over the asked money. Poor man took the money & left. Sultans friends laughed and asked him, about the reason for giving such a big amount to the man, who, by appearance, can never repay it to him? Sultan smiled & said There is a reason am the richest man of all. That poor person indeed looked too minor to pay back the amount but the way he spoke to me & calmness & confidence in his tone is an indication of strong wisdom & clarity. I hope my investment will not go in vain. It has been said that after two years, the poor man returned the Sultans amount & became one of the prominent merchants of that time.
What is the moral of this story? It is; wisdom in the scrolls and golden books of history can reignite the passion & give tremendous calmness to execute any work. A poor man invested his time in going through all the greatest triumphs and the secret of mastering oneself. Thats why he was very calm when he stood in front of the richest man. As a famous philosopher has said,
Formal education will give you a living but self-education will give you a fortune
Being an entrepreneur and hailing from Multan, has always instilled in me a passion for doing something big & than give back to the society.
