Give a man a fish. (Part Two)

Updated on February 21, 2013

For those who have read the first part of Give a man a fish, welcome to part 2. For those who have stumbled across this and would like to know the full story, simply click here to be taken to Part one.

Feed him for a day

Back at Joel's modest house after a long and very cold day serving free food and drink as well as handing out cards of help, the three friends enjoy a meal together and begin their plans.

Joel had a already decided that the two friends and their families were going to benefit from the teachings of the old man.

Over the course of the next two weeks Joel sets about training his friends to go back home and start delivering the amazing opportunity that they had been presented with. Joel told the friends of his intention to give them all the information he has and that they would be extremely wealthy by this time next year so long as they dedicate their lives to helping others.


Show him how to fish

A date is set one year from this day for them all to meet up again so that they can continue their strategy planning for this would be global sensation, Give a man a fish.At the same time they would be able to review the progress of what had been achieved in their own European town.

It was agreed at his meeting that their combined alliance would need a name. Between them they agreed on 'Secret strategy of the Secret Millionaires'

Within a year of using Joel's and the old man's plan the friends have over 1 million euro's of cash reserves. Collectively they will have helped 100's of people in their town to do the same. Media attention will be beginning to gather pace and everyone in the town will be so excited.

A new foundation would be born out of all this excitement and furore called J.J.S Super Achiever Strategies For Life.

This new foundation would be set up from donations alone given by grateful recipients of the two friends help and dedication to their wider community.

With this the worldwide goal of the founders of this strategy would be born. Every town and city across the world would now get their very own office and base with which to continue the teachings of this strategy.

Each office would focus on teaching for free, anyone who needs their help and guidance, the strategies for life provided by this awesome network of people. All they have to do is promise to donate as much as they feel is necessary to give back to the foundation in return for what had been learned from the teachings.

It has to be said by this stage in the development of J.J.S Super Achiever Strategies For Life, begins to show on the radars of the world's governments. In their interests they believe that they have no alternative but to support the teaching methods being handed out by the foundation. They see the work being done and quickly begin to work alongside various agencies with a clear plan to eradicate global poverty once and for all.

Strange how all of this comes about from a simple quote -: Give a man a fish and feed him for a day, Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime. It is always the simplest of things which are the most effective.

The vision of the old man and Joel will have changed the face of this planet for good. People joining together with creativity and vision is the only thing which will have done this. Without the vision of one person nothing changes. Even the vision of just one person can change the course of history. This has been proven so many times. Money is out there in great quantity. We all need to manifest it through our vision and creativity.

The plan comes next to put this vision into action. The foundation will have that plan.

Sometime in the very near future you will all see a plan, creativity, vision and you will then realise where it was that you saw it. You will remember the quote, Give a man a fish and the rest will be history for you.

You may have realised that the exact details of the system have not been mentioned. This is because there will be no definite system. You will follow the teachings of the old man and Joel and his two friends and will develop your personal strategies for wealth building very quickly.

We are all in the right place here and at the right time and so long as we help enough other people to become successful first, we will become successful as a result.

Give a man a fish,

feed him for a day.

Teach a man to fish,

Feed him for life.

This will be the plan and it will duplicate forever and the world will be a different place because of this.


Feed him for life

Countless people will have been touched by the strategy already.

Just remember this is a fictitious story written by poshcoffeeco as an introduction to short story writing.

If you believe it is true and will happen in the future, then it will.

On the other hand, believe it won't happen and it won't.

I can guarantee that Give a man a fish is going to be a strategy you will see in the future somewhere around maybe not in the same form, but a form like it.

People are working on the development somewhere in the world as you read this.

You know why?

Because if I can dream this story up, then so can someone else!
