THE RICHEST BOY IN THE WORLD -an inspirational story

Once upon a time… there was a boy, whose family was very wealthy. One day his father took him on a trip to the country, where he aimed to show his son, how poor people live. So they arrived at a farm of a very poor family, as he considered. They spent there several days.

On their return, the father asked the son if he liked the trip. Oh, it was great, father -the boy replied. Did you notice how poor people live? Yes, I did -said the boy. The father asked his son to tell in more details about his impressions from their trip. Well, we have only one dog, and they have four of them. In our garden there is a pool, while they have a river that has no end. We’ve got expensive lanterns, but they have the stars above their heads at night. We have the balcony, and they have the whole horizon. We have only a small piece of land, while they have the endless fields. We buy food, but they grow it. We have a high fence for protection of out property, and they don’t need it, as their friends protect them.

The father was stunned. He could not say a word. Then the boy added: “Thank You, father, for letting me see how poor we are.”

You see in life…

in your life!

True wealth as well as happiness is not measured by material things.

Love, friendship and freedom are far more valuable.

If you are truly rich, you possess love, you

possess friendship and you are free.

Instead of locking yourself in to your small

island of possessions and safety,

You should open up to the world.

That way you will be the richest man alive,

because the whole world belongs to you…
