A business executive was deep in debt and could
see no way out. Creditors were closing in on him.
Suppliers were demanding payment... He sat on
the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything
could save his company from bankruptcy.
Suddenly an old man appeared before him. " I can

see that something is troubling you," he said. After listening
to the executive's woes, the old man said, I believe I can
help you." He asked the man his name, wrote out a check
and pushed it into his hand saying, "Take the money....Meet
me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time,"
Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.
The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000,
signed by John D Rockefeller, then one of the richest men

he realized. But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed
check in his safe. Just knowing it was there might give him the strength
to work out a way to save his business, he thought.

With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended

But just as the executive was about to hand back the check
and shared his success story, a nurse came running up and
grabbed the old man. " I'm so glad I caught him!" she cried.
" I hope he hasn't been bothering you. He's always escaping from
the rest home and telling people he's John D Rockefeller, " And she led
the old man away by the arm.
The astonished executive just stood there, stunned.
All year long he'd been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling,
convinced he had half a million dollars behind him.
Suddenly he realized that it wasn't the money, real or imagined.
that had turned his life around. It was his newfound self-confidence
that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.
