A Short Story on Self Confidence

There was a business executive who was deep in debt and could see no way out.

Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment. He sat on the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy.

Suddenly an old man appeared before him. “I can see that something is troubling you,” he said.

After listening to the executive’s woes, the old man said, “I believe I can help you.”

He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand saying, “Take this money. Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time.”

Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.

The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!

“I can erase my money worries in an instant!” he realized. But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it was there might give him the strength to work out a way to save his business, he thought.

With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money once again.

Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check. At the agreed-upon time, the old man appeared. But just as the executive was about to hand back the check and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man.

“I’m so glad I caught him!” she cried. “I hope he hasn’t been bothering you. He’s always escaping from the rest home and telling people he’s John D. Rockefeller.”

And she led the old man away by the arm.

The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year long he’d been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him.

Suddenly, he realized that it wasn’t the money, real or imagined, that had turned his life around. It was his newfound self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.

Marvel Custom Harley Davidsons

Marvel has licensed 25 characters for use in one-off custom Harley Davidsons. That’s right, the world’s most well known motorcycle manufacturer has joined forces with one of the world’s most popular media conglomerates to create this rather stunning array of motorcycles.

 

Altogether there are 25 different motorcycles, ranging from Marvel characters such as Spider-Man, Ant-Man, Captain America, Spider-Gwen, Black Widow, The Punisher, The Hulk, Drax, Black Panther and more. The customization of these motorcycles runs concurrent with the 75th anniversary of Captain America and was done at participating Harley-Davidson dealerships across Australia and New Zealand. Unfortunately, that’s where these bikes will remain. This customized Marvel line isn’t available for purchase and can only be won by residents of Australia and New Zealand through voting for their favorite bike. Yes, that is indeed a let down for those of us in other parts of the world who love Harley-Davidson motorbikes and Marvel comics.
However, the Captain America Harley started it all, as Harley-Davidson spokesperson, David Turney says
“We customised the Captain America Street Glide Special to inspire Harley-Davidson dealers across Australia and New Zealand to create their own Marvel character inspired custom motorcycle using the wider H-D range. The results have been phenomenal. A true combination of super powers, with over 16 Marvel characters represented.”
If you live in Australia or New Zeeland then you’re eligible to win one. All you have to do is enter the official site, find the one you like and then vote it.
Here are some models for you to look at:
