Recently, I came to know a person, who is having small petty shop selling soft drinks now being invited by Bantam Books, who will purchase his handwritten copy of the two new novels through agencies at a bigger price. While running the shop he had his post graduation in English literature.Do we often underestimate people who potential in them eager to come out with a small encouragement.?

Maybe we do often underestimate people but most of this amazing people prefer just to stay low and down to earth. They're not going to show off nor living in their dreams by whining and complaining do nothing type. I have truly respect for them !!! I've known also this person whom during the day time working as a rickshaw man, sometimes he prefer to spend his money for books he needs than buying meals and yet managed finished his study and get his university diploma and hardly complaint about how hard his life sometimes can be.....

I dont underestimate any body who can think. We are all sitting on gold mines, virgin untapped gold mines that could change our lives for ever! I know of a very poor friend of mine who went Botswana, taught in some school, but later decided that writing books was the way to go.Today his books in Economics have become serious teaching books in the whole Central and Southern Africa-he gets thousands of dollars from the proceeds of his books-he is a rich man!
