Doing Good, being comprehensive, friendly and patient may be more rewarding than what you may think!
A week ago i had to travel from 1 country to another, i wanted to buy some stuff for a poor guy that sleeps near my building before i go, so went bought and gave him some food, then cleaned a bit my room and prepared my self for the trip, then i discovered that i did not notice that the plane was taking off from second airport terminal, and if i add the bus waiting and transport that would add 30-45 min, and gate was to close in 30 min, i would need 15-20 min to terminal 1 but at least 45 min to terminal 2! So i realised i had a problem, waiting a taxi will take too long, i tried to find some taxis near with no luck!
So i had to do the only thing left,
Take an autostop, from experience i knew that my chances are slim in getting a ride ! So i went to the main road towards the airport positioned myself in a place that would allow drivers to stop their car and used the please sign, and the in less than 1 min, a man stopped, i told him i’m late for my plane and i need to go to airport t2, so he drove me there, i left him a usb bracelet as a thank you gift, i got the bracelet from a tech company in Cannes Lions Advertising festival (which the 7 days entrance cost more than 2400$, i entered for Free posing as a convincing journalist- even without any journalist cards- but only attended 1 day- don’t need more, nothing breakthrough was being said anyway!)
Anyway the moral of the story, bought some food to a poor guy and immediately the autostop luck smiled at me ! And was able to catch my flight, and believe me, it’s like this often when you are being positive, positivity will send some luck your way!
