How to get your future

By shumaila bibiPublished 23 days ago 3 min read

In a small village, there lived a young boy named Raju. Raju came from a very poor family with a glorious dream. His splendid eyes sometimes twinkled for an unknown reason, and he struggled to make ends meet every day. His parents were ragpickers, and they would sift through garbage to find anything valuable to sell.

Every day, Raju would accompany his parents to the dumpsite and help them collect trash to sell. Despite their hardships, Raju was a bright and curious child. He looked at the school going pulpits and said to himself that he must achieve his way. Struggle implies fate. He understood apparent intentions and a nearby destination. He had a thirst for knowledge and dreamed of someday going to school and receiving an education.

destination is easy but away for away,

but there are branches of struggle.

One day, as Raju was rummaging through the garbage, he found a torn piece of paper. He picked it up carefully and tried to decipher what was written on it. To his surprise, it was a page from a book. Raju’s eyes lit up with excitement as he realized that he could read the words on the paper.

From that day on, Raju would eagerly search for more discarded books and papers at the dump site. He would spend hours reading and learning from them, teaching himself everything he could about the world outside his small village. He identified how to build his life.

As Raju grew older, he became more determined than ever to change his circumstances. He saved every rupee he earned from selling garbage, and eventually, he could afford to go to school. Villagers were amazed by Raju’s transformation. He was now a dedicated and hard-working student who excelled in his studies.

After years of hard work and determination, Raju graduated from school with flying colors. His parents were thrilled and proud of his accomplishments. But Raju was not content with just a high school education. He had big dreams of becoming a successful businessman and making a name for himself around the world. The thought crossed his mind that everything is possible in this world through persistent effort.

Raju worked odd jobs and saved every penny he could to pay for his college education. He studied day and night, determined to succeed against all odds. Despite facing many challenges and hardships, Raju never gave up on his dreams.

Finally, after years of hard work and dedication, Raju graduated from college with a degree in business management. He landed a job at a prestigious company and quickly rose through the ranks, showcasing his intelligence, determination, and hard work.

In no time, Raju became a successful businessman, known for his innovative ideas and ethical business practices. He never forgot his humble beginnings and always tried to give back to his community. Raju funded schools and scholarships for underprivileged children, just like himself, who dreamt of a better future.

Raju’s story became an inspiration to many, a true testament to the power of hard work, determination, and never giving up on one’s dreams. Despite starting from scratch and facing immense challenges, Raju had become a big person in every sense of the word—not just in terms of success, but also in his generosity, kindness, and willingness to help others.

And so, Raju’s journey from a poor boy selling garbage to a successful businessman served as a reminder that no dream is too big and no obstacle is too great if one is willing to work hard and never lose hope. Raju’s story became a beacon of hope for many, proving that with persistence and unwavering determination, anything is possible.
