This is a personal story which I hope some will find it inspiring to earn more in the internet marketing business so as to have the ability to give back more.
It happened around the time when one of my product launched and hit the thousand dollar profit margin when I checked it on my smartphone, in quite a positive mood at that moment of time.
Was walking around yesterday when an elderly uncle approached me, he asked me how to take the bus from this place to another (1 hour trip), I told him I'm not sure which bus as I wasn't familiar with the place.
He looked earnestly lost when he held out his right palm to me and told me the only wealth he had on him was only 40 cents (2 twenty cents coins) and he did not know how he could travel to his destination with just 40 cents.
The bus stop was just in front and he could not take the bus which for an hour's trip would be around $1.50, perhaps cheaper as he was an elder. The train station was just to the left and he too could not take it as it would have cost more than $2.
I saw the sadness in his eyes and in half a second, took out my wallet and gave him 25 times of his wealth that moment of 40 cents, a $10 note.
He looked stunned for a moment and said thank you. We parted our ways.
The whole event lasted perhaps less than 25 seconds, from the time he asked for directions, his lack of funds to travel, to the parting of ways but this memory will be in my mind for more than 25 years.
Was he genuinely lost or could there be doubts that he might be a street conman? It doesn't matter. I believe it is better to err than to deprive a man in need in such situations when I am still able to.
Was it too much to give when $2 or $5 is more than sufficient? When I flipped my wallet, there were $50, $10, $5 and $2 notes in my plain side. $50 will be too much, $2 will be too borderline, $5 will be a good range... I chose $10... because I wanted him to believe that life has hope and that if we are willing to work hard, to ask the right questions, to reach the right people, to be honest and sincere, there will always be hope.
I hope it was more than cash that was given that very moment, I hope what was received was faith in humans and the Heavens for the fateful meeting.
If the places were exchanged, and I was the one who needed the funds, I believe I will have an tremendous boost in my Faith for the humankind, life and the Heavens. With that power in my heart, I will strive to better the world and the lives around me which I have the ability to impact.
If it happened, it happened, why must that always be a meaning?
Life and lives changed for the better, that is a kind of meaning which is difficult to explain, what matters is that it happened.
Dear Warriors, do earn more, strive hard, never give up, when you win the next big "prize" again, it's a joy to share the victory to the needy in time. Have a good day my friends.
