Walt Disney once said “All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”
Big or small, if you want something, nothing can deter you from getting it and so is the narrative below.
This Facebook post from Ninad Vengurlekar has something to share which is worth being an inspiration for.
This story is about Rambhau, a resident of Pune, who is a motivation in the right ways.
Rambhau started with tilling soil on the side of the road of a Complex to being an Entrepreneur. Banks would reject funds for a ‘gardening business’, but that never stopped him. Today he is an avid entrepreneur and a proud owner of a Honda Civic.
Vengurlekar writes “4 years back he was tilling soil on the side of a road inside my complex when a site engineer asked him if he would like to build my house garden. He hurriedly came running to me and agreed to whatever I wanted him to do and for whatever I was willing to pay. He almost did my garden for free.”
After the project was complete, Rambhau would use the first garden he designed as a sample for more contracts from the rest of the housing complex. Within two years he was managing 20 house gardens, with people whom he hired to work for him. Slowly, he expanded his trade, bought a delivery van and won the trust of the contractor of the complex who wanted a garden that was 1/2 an acre big. From then on, there was no looking back.
“Soon, the builder of the complex offered him the contract to maintain the trees and gardens in the entire complex. I was told that he now has 2-3 delivery vehicles and over 15 people under him,” says Vengurlekar
“Now he came to remodel some trees in my garden. He came in a Honda Civic, got down and got to work with the workers. He was digging the soil, uprooting trees and planting new ones. He was standing there and getting things done.” Vengurlekar added.
Despite reaching pinnacles, he is modest and humble enough to get his hands into the soil and do the gardening work.
Vengurlekar Quoted “To me, the poor are like Bonsai trees. When you plant the best seed of the tallest tree in a six-inch deep flower pot, you get a perfect replica of the tallest tree, but it is only inches tall. There is nothing wrong with the seed you planted; only the soil-base you provided was inadequate.
Poor people are bonsai people. There is nothing wrong with their seeds. Only society never gave them a base to grow on.”
This story is not only an inspiration but hopes for all those small Entrepreneurs who fear of coming out to the world. This story states if you have the sheer desire, you can definitely achieve it.
