We all know who Bill Gate Is He is known as the father of computer. He was ones the first richest man in the world not until Jeff Bezos took the lead. There was a certain time Bill Gate was asked if there was someone richer than him. His response was heart melting.
Back when Bill Gate was the richest man on earth, someone asked him “Is there anyone richer than you in the world”?
Bill Gate replied “Yes there’s a person who is richer than me. It was when I wasn’t rich or famous. I was at the New York airport and I saw a newspaper vendor. I wanted to buy one newspaper and I realized I didn’t have change.
So, I left the idea of buying and returned it to the vendor. I told him of not having the change. The vendor said I’m giving you this for free, on this insistence I took the newspaper.
Coincidentally, after two to three months, I landed on the same airport and again I was short of change to buy a newspaper. The vendor offered me the newspaper again. I refused and said I can’t take it as I don’t have change today too.
He said, ‘you can take it, I’m sharing this from my profit. I won’t be at a loss’. I took the newspaper. After 19years, I became famous and known by people. Suddenly I remembered that vendor. I began searching for him. After one and a half month, I found him.
Then I asked him, ‘do you know me’? He said, ‘Yes, you’re Bill Gate’. I asked him again, ‘Do you remember once you gave me free newspapers?’ The vendor said, ‘Yes I remember, I gave you twice’. I said, ‘I want to repay that help you offered me that time. Whatever you want in life, tell me, I shall fulfill it’.
He said, ‘Sir, don’t you think by doing so, you won’t be able to match my help?’. I asked him, ‘why?. He said ‘I helped you when I was a poor newspaper vendor but you are trying to help me now when you have become richest man in the world, how can your help match mine?
That day, I realized that the newspaper vendor was richer than I was. Because he didn’t wait to become rich to help someone.
People need to understand that the truly rich are those who possess a rich heart rather than lots of money. Kindness makes you the most beautiful person in the world, no matter what you look like.
