When Three Friends Started A Company But One Lost Patience

Your decisions shape your destiny…

Three friends started a company. Initially, they worked enthusiastically but soon one of them lost his patience and started to behave pessimistically. He thought both of his friends are not aware of the reality and there is no future of the company.

The other two friends were determined to make the company run successfully. They pacified him to keep patience. They predicted that the company is going to be successful. But, he was not convinced. With every passing day, he was growing restless and intolerant towards his both friends. A few days later he sold his 10 percent share of the company at a price of just 800 dollars.

It happens, mostly in every company. Friends start a company but after few months or years they get separated or sell their share. There are many examples. But what happened, in this case, was something unbelievable.

After a few years, the company became a billion dollar empire. It became one of the most successful and most popular companies ever!

The names of all three friends who started the company are Ronald Wayne, Stephen Wozniak and Steve Jobs and the company’s name is ‘Apple’. In 1976, Ronald Wayne sold his 10% share of Apple Company for just 800 dollars!

Not only this one but many examples of wrong decision making are there in history.

In 1999, a company called ‘Excite’ was offered to buy a software company for 1 million dollars. But, ‘Excite’ rejected the deal. The name of the software company, ‘Excite’ rejected to buy, was ‘Google’.

It is in your moment of decision that your destiny is shaped.
