They say for one to achieve success, he must be smart and wise. It is important that one has skills he can use in real-life situations, since these things can aide him while he is living. Many rich businessmen and tycoons haven’t even finished their studies, most of them decided to do something they excel at and fortunately succeeded, thus taking them to where they currently at.
Many of us have tried our luck in businesses too, we used our skills and talents and even paired it up with the knowledge we possess, but this type of success doesn’t just come to anyone. This man did use his skills to earn money but his friends mocked him and laughed at what he did. They didn’t know he was making money out of it.
The man was revealed to be punching holes in a wintermelon. Well, you might have though for a moment that it is ridiculous too, but wait, let me just tell you that this act done by the man has actually gained him a profit.
The young man makes cuts in the wintermelon. He then carved three holes and places a colander or a funnel-shaped net inside each hole.
He then binds the colander to the wintermelon using a steel wire to avoid it from slipping or falling off. He pierced both ends of the melon with a bamboo stick and finally, he puts it into the river.
After 30 minutes, the young man pulled the wintermelon off the river and freshwater lobsters and crayfish got trapped in the colander. Wow! The man was smart to come up with that kind of method.
The young man then revealed that he had been earning cash daily by using that method. He decided to share his knowledge so other people especially the youth can follow it and try it if they want to venture into that kind of field.
