Do you ever wonder about what real richness is? Someone asked Bill Gates, “Is there any person richer than you?”
He said, “YES!, only one. Many years ago, I had been dismissed, and I had gone to New York airport. I read titles of newspapers there. I liked one of them, and I want to buy it. But I didn’t have money. So abandoned the idea, suddenly, a black boy called me and told me, “This newspaper for you.” I said, but I don’t have money.
He said, “No problem, I give you for free.”
After three months, I went there. Coincidentally, that story happened again, and that same boy gave me another free newspaper again. I said I couldn’t accept it. But he said, “I give you from my profit.”
After 19 years, I had been rich, and I decided to find that boy. I found him after one and half month’s search. I asked him, do you know me? He said, “Yes!, you’re famous, Bill Gates.”
I said you gave me free newspaper two times many years ago. Now, I want to compensate for it. I am going to give you everything that you want. The black young man replied, “You can’t compensate it!”
Did I say, why? He said, “Because I gave you when I was poor. You want to give me when you are rich. So, how do you compensate?”
Bill Gates said I think that black young man is richer than me.”
You don’t have to be rich or wait to be rich to give a Real attitude of giving is when you lack.
We can be rich people by our character, kindness, and love, not by property.
