Interesting Real life story from MJ
Michael Jeffrey Jordan ( MJ ) is  also known as an American retired professional basketball player, businessman, and principal owner and chairman of the Charlotte Hornets of the National Basketball Association. 
He is a billionaire( 1.4 Billion as on 2017 ) professional NBA player & businessman.
One of the interesting incidents about him describes his personality & defines his attitude.
 When he was 13 years old, his father gave him a piece of used clothing and asked: "What do you think the value of this outfit would be?"  Jordan replied, "Maybe one dollar."

His father asked, "Can you sell it for two dollars? If you can sell it, it would mean that you are a big help to your father and mother. " Jordan nodded his head, "I'll try, but no guarantee that I'll be successful."
 
Jordan carefully washed the clothes clean. Because they didn't have an iron, to smoothen out clothes, he levelled it with a clothes brush on a flat board, then kept it in the sun to dry. The next day, he brought the clothes to a crowded underground station. After offering it for more than six hours. Jordan finally managed to sell it for $2. He took the two dollar bill and ran home.
 
After that, everyday he was looked for used clothing, washed and ironed it and  sold it in the crowd.
More than ten days later, his father again gave him a piece of used clothing, "Now think of a way that you can sell these clothes for 20 bucks?" Jordan said, "How is it possible? This outfit can only fetch two dollars at the most. "
 
His father replied in an effort to inspire him, "Why don't you try it first? There must be a way."
 
Finally, Jordan got an Idea He asked for cousin's help to paint a picture of Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse on the garment. Then he tried to sell it in the school where the children of the rich study. Soon a housekeeper, who was there to pick his master, bought clothes for his master. The master was a little boy of only 10 years but was very fond of clothes. He loved it so much and he gave a five dollar tip. 25 dollars was a huge amount
for Jordan, the equivalent of a month's salary of his father.
 When he got home, his father gave him yet another piece of used clothing. "Are you able to resell it at a price of 200 dollars?" His eyes lit up.

This time, Jordan accepted the clothes without the slightest doubt. Two months later a popular movie actress from the movie "Charlie's Angels", Farah Fawcett came to New York for her Movie promos. After the press conference, Jordan made his way through the security forces to reach the side of Farah Fawcett and requested her autograph on the piece of clothing. When Fawcett saw this innocent child asking for her autograph, she gladly signed it.

Jordan was shouting very excitedly, "This is a jersey signed by Miss Farah Fawcett, the selling price is 200 dollars!"He auctioned off the clothes, to a businessman for a price of 1,200 dollars!   * Upon returning home, his father by broke into TEARS and said, "I am amazed that you did it My child!

You're really great! "  That night, Jordan slept alongside his father. His father said, "Son, in your experience selling these three pieces of clothing, what did you learn about success?"
 Jordan replied, "Where there's a will, there's a way."

 His father nodded his head, then shook his head, "What you say is not entirely wrong! But that was not my intention. I just wanted to show you that a piece of used clothing which is worth only a dollar can also be increased in value, Then how about us - living & thinking humans? We maybe darker and poorer, but what's the difference? "

 This thought enlightened young Jordan. Even a piece of used clothing could be made dignified, then why not me? There is absolutely no reason to underestimate myself. From then on, Michael Jordan felt that his future would be beautiful and full of hope.

 Our potential is so great, and should not be viewed small & low only because of our status, looks or wealth. Even a diamond is just a stone before it has been polished. Keep improving yourselves, trying your best and striving ahead!

 Let’s read it in Hindi translation as below:-
माइकल जब 13 साल का हुआ तो उसके पिता ने उसे एक पुराना कपड़ा देकर उसकी कीमत पूछी।माइकल बोला एक डॉलर तो पिता ने कहा कि इसे बेचकर दो डॉलर लेकर आओ।

 माइकल ने उस कपड़े को अच्छे से साफ़ कर धोया और अच्छे से उस कपड़े को फोल्ड लगाकर रख दिया। अगले दिन उसे लेकर वह रेलवे स्टेशन गया, जहां कई घंटों की मेहनत के बाद वह कपड़ा दो डॉलर में बिका।

कुछ दिन बाद उसके पिता ने उसे वैसा ही दूसरा कपड़ा दिया और उसे बीस डॉलर में बेचने को कहा।   इस बार माइकल ने अपने एक पेंटर दोस्त की मदद से उस कपड़े पर सुन्दर चित्र बना कर रंगवा दिया और एक गुलज़ार बाजार में बेचने के लिए पहुंच गया। एक व्यक्ति ने वह कपड़ा बीस डॉलर में खरीदा और उसे पांच डॉलर की टिप भी दी।

जब माइकल वापस आया तो उसके पिता ने फिर एक कपड़ा हाथ में दे दिया और उसे 200 डॉलर में बेचने को कहा। इस बार माइकल को पता था कि इस कपड़े की इतनी ज्यादा कीमत कैसे मिल सकती है  
उसके शहर में  मूवी की शूटिंग के लिए एक नामी कलाकार आई थीं। माइकल उस कलाकार के पास पहुंचा और उसी कपड़े पर उनके ऑटोग्राफ ले लिए। ऑटोग्राफ लेने के बाद माइकल उसी कपड़े की बोली लगाने लगा। बोली दो सौ डॉलर से शुरू हुई और एक व्यापारी ने वह कपड़ा 1200 डॉलर में ले लिया।
रकम लेकर जब माइकल घर पहुंचा तो खुशी से पिता की आंखों में आंसू गए। उन्होंने बेटे से पूछा कि इतने दिनों से कपड़े बेचते हुए तुमने क्या सीखा ? माइकल बोलापहले खुद को समझो , खुद को पहचानो फिर पूरी लगन से मन्ज़िल की और बढ़ो क्योकि जहां चाह होती है, राह अपने आप निकल आती है।'

पिता बोले कि 'तुम बिलकुल सही हो, मगर मेरा ध्येय तुम्हें यह समझाना भी था कि अगर इंसान खुद के बने कपड़े को मैला होने के बाद भी इतनी कीमत बढ़ा सकता है , तो फिर  वो परमात्मा अपने द्वरा बनाये हम इंसानों की कीमत बढ़ाने में क्या कोई कसर छोड़ भी सकता है ?
सोचो कपड़ा मैला होने पर इसकी कीमत बढ़ाने के लिए उसे धो कर साफ़ करना पड़ा, फिर और ज्यादा कीमत मिली जब उस पर एक पेंटर ने उसे अच्छे से रंग दिया , और उससे भी ज्यादा कीमत मिली जब एक नामी कलाकार ने उस पर अपने नाम की मोहर लगा दी

***तो विचार करें जब इंसान उस निर्जीव कपड़े को अपने हिसाब से उसकी कीमत बड़ा सकता है तो फिर वो मालिक जिसने हम जीवों को बनाया है क्या वो हमारी कीमत कम होने देंगा ? जीवात्मा भी यहां आकर मैला हो जाता है लेकिन सतगुरु हम मैले जीवात्माओं को पहले साफ़ और स्वच्छ करते हैं, जिससे परमात्मा की नज़र में हम जीवात्माओं की कीमत थोड़ी बढ़ जाती है फिर सतगुरु हम जीवात्माओं को अपनी रहनी के रंग में रंग देते हैं, फिर कीमत और ज्यादा बढ़ जाती है। और फिर सतगुरु हम पर अपने नाम की मोहर लगा देते हैं फिर तो इंसान अपनी कीमत का अंदाज़ा ही नही लगा सकता।***
