But the machine that they had built to process the data flopped when they tried to present it to a Seattle County traffic employee. Yet, this business helped to set Gates and his partner Paul Allen up for major success with Microsoft.

He was cleverly able to put together a company that revolutionized the personal computing marketplace. And we all know just how successful that was for him…. ______

Read the story below and let it change your thinking about life!
Two men are seriously ill and in the same hospital room. For an hour each day, the nurses would let the man closest to the room’s only window sit up in order to help drain the fluid in his lungs.
The other man in the room spent all his time flat on his back.
As you can imagine, with little else to do, the men would talk for hours. They spoke about their families, homes, their lives in the military and where they had traveled.
And each day, the man sitting away from the window longed for the hour when his roommate would be able to sit up and describe the details of the world outside their room.
He would speak of children playing, of animals peacefully roaming and of happy families playing in the water.
Sadly, after months of this, the day arrived when the man closest to the window died in his sleep. After his body had been removed from the room and some time had passed, the other man asked if he could take the bed by the window. The nurses were happy to oblige him and they made the switch.
Once they were gone, the man slowly and painfully pulled himself up so he could take his first good look at the world outside the hospital room, the world whose description had brought him so much comfort.
To his dismay, he found that the view was not as vibrant as he’d been told; in fact, the window faced a blank wall.
Upset, the man called for the nurse and explained the situation.
“Why would he lie to me?” he questioned the nurse.
After thinking for a moment, the nurse looked at him and said:
“Maybe he just wanted to encourage you.”
This should be a lesson to all of us that no matter our situation, we can do tremendous good for those around us by looking on the bright side of every situation.
Even when we’re faced with what seems like an impenetrable brick wall, we can bring so much happiness and joy to those around us if we find positive ways of looking at the world.
The man in the story could just as easily have described the bland, brick wall that stood outside the window but instead of simply passing along his misery and grief, he shared whatever happiness he did have, doubling it.
Once in village lived a man who was very lazy and didn’t liked to work. So he would always look for easiest way to feed himself.
One day he found a fruit farm and looked around. Not seeing any one guarding farm, he decided to steal some fruits but as soon as he climbed tree, farm owner saw him.
Owner ran toward him to catch him. Seeing him that man got afraid and ran towards forest and went inside forest to hide. After sometime passed, he started to walk toward village.
While passing by he saw that there was fox who had only two legs and was crawling on those two legs. Man thought to himself, “How can this fox is still alive in such condition? This fox can’t run then how it is able to feed himself as well as save itself from other animals?” Just then man saw a lion coming in his direction, He ran and climbed up tree.
From there he saw that lion was holding a piece of meat in his mouth and seeing lion all other animals ran away except for that fox as it wasn’t able to run.
Man was surprised to see that instead of attacking that fox, lion left piece of meat there and left. Seeing this that man realized God’s plan to feed that fox and thought to himself, “God is creator of all and he always have a plan to take care of beings he created.
This means God must have something planned for him too.” He left from there and then just outside village sat under a tree, waiting for someone to come and feed him too. He kept looking at road waiting for someone to come and feed him but two days passed and he was still without food.
Finally he couldn’t bear hunger and got up from that place and started to walk back to village. While waking back to village he met an old Sage. He told him everything he had on his mind. he questioned, “Why is that God has shown it’s mercy on that fox and was so cruel to me?” Sage gave him some food and water.
Then smiled and said, “It’s true that the creator has a plan for everyone. You are obviously a part of the God’s plan. But Son, You took his sign in a wrong way. He didn’t want you to be like the fox. He wanted you to be like the Lion”
#Moral: God has given us Strength and Capability to do our part. We should always Learn to see things in Positive way and see yourself in Position to Help others who Need.
