Is there anyone richer than you in the world? Someone asked Bill Gates, the richest man in the world, Is there anyone richer than you in the world? Bill Gates said yes there is a man who is even richer than me. Then Bill Gates started his story but he said at a time when I didn’t have money and I didn’t have fame.
One day I was at the New York airport and a newspaper seller appeared. I wanted to buy a newspaper but I didn’t have open dollars. I returned to the newspaperman and said I do not have open dollars. He replied, “No matter, I will give it to you for free.” I refused but at his insistence, I took the newspaper from him for free.
Coincidentally, I landed at the same airport 3 years later, but this time I did not have any open money. The newspaper seller came and presented the newspaper. I denied that I could not take it. I do not have open money. He again said don’t give money. I’ll pay out of my pocket. I don’t have much problem. And I took that newspaper again.
Exactly 19 years later I became rich and famous. I thought of the seller and I started looking for him. After a month and a half, I was able to find him. I asked him do you know me and he said yes why not you Bill Gates. Do you remember? I took the newspaper for free from you. He said, “Yes, I gave you the newspaper twice.”
I told them you had helped me. Now tell me what you need. He said, “I do not think that your help will be equal to my help.” What I did to you!
I asked why? He said, “Sir, I helped you when I was a poor newspaper seller.” And you’re helping at the moment. When you become the richest. How can these two be equal to each other?
Bill Gates says that day I found out that the newspaper seller was richer than me. Because he did not wait to become rich to help anyone. People should understand that the richest are those whose hearts are the richest. Not those who have a lot of money.
