I am so happy today, I bought a Mercedes. Let me tell you how I made this happen so that one day you will also own Mercedes.

Let’s rewind to the first day of my college. My father bought me my first mobile phone Nokia 3310 on that day, the happiest day of my life. I spent the whole day exploring the phone, playing Snake game, and experimenting with different ring tones. I used to carry that phone in hand when roaming in college as a symbol of status.

I finally formed a group of friends in college. Few of my friends had phones with camera, colored screen, and better ring tones. You know the obvious path I took, I convinced my father to buy similar phone for me as I can click picture of study notes, less strain on my eyes and whatnot.

A few weeks later few of my friends bought an Android phone, I did too. My friends bought iPhone, I did too. Then iPad, then bike, then Xbox, then laptop, then vacation packages.

I have new friends in my office, on LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook whom I follow for inspiration. And recently they bought BMW and Mercedes. And here I am with my own Mercedes, happiest person on earth.

Also, my father still has my Nokia 3310 which he uses everyday. Old people are tough nuts, they are not ready to change and adapt to the new world.

End of Story.
