It is a short story but very inspirational. If you also want to know the attitude of not giving up, then definitely read this story. This is the story of Brian Acton.

When he felt that he would not get a job, he started working on a mobile application with his friend Jan Koum working in Yahoo company. Today that application is being used by billions of people around the world. Yes, I am talking about the most popular messaging mobile App, WhatsApp.

What do we learn from this story?


You should have the utmost confidence in yourself. Even if you are not getting a job, or the business is not going well, you just have to keep trying and trying.

If Brian Acton had sat at home in the pain of not getting a job, we would not have got WhatsApp today.

We also get to learn from this story that whatever happens it happens for a good cause. If Brian Acton had worked in a big company, then maybe the idea of ​​WhatsApp would not come in his mind.

Salute to Brian Acton, who brought a new model in the technology field.


Hindi Version


यह एक छोटी सी कहानी है लेकिन बहुत प्रेरणादायक है। अगर आप भी हार न मानने का रवैया जानना चाहते हैं तो इस कहानी को जरूर पढ़ें। यह कहानी है ब्रायन एक्टन की।

ब्रायन 2009 में एक बेहतरीन सॉफ्टवेयर इंजीनियर थे। वह नौकरी की तलाश में थे, लेकिन कोई उन्हें नौकरी नहीं दे रहा था। उन्होंने कई वर्षों तक बड़ी कंपनियों मे जैसे Yahoo और Apple के लिए भी काम किया। लेकिन इसके बाद भी उन्हें दो बड़ी कंपनियों Twitter और Facebook ने नौकरी देने से मना कर दिया।

जब उन्हें लगा कि उन्हें नौकरी नहीं मिलेगी, तो उन्होंने Yahoo कंपनी में काम करने वाले अपने दोस्त Jan Koum के साथ एक मोबाइल एप्लिकेशन पर काम करना शुरू कर दिया। आज उस एप्लिकेशन का उपयोग दुनिया भर में अरबों लोग कर रहे हैं। जी हां, मैं बात कर रहा हूं सबसे लोकप्रिय मैसेजिंग मोबाइल एप WhatsApp की।

WhatsAppको Facebook ने साल 2014 में 19 अरब डॉलर में खरीदा था।


हम इस कहानी से क्या सीखते हैं?


आपको खुद पर सबसे ज्यादा भरोसा होना चाहिए। अगर आपको नौकरी नहीं मिल रही है, या व्यवसाय ठीक नहीं चल रहा है, तो आपको बस कोशिश करते रहना है। अगर ब्रायन एक्टन नौकरी न मिलने के दर्द में घर बैठे होते तो आज व्हाट्सएप न होता।

इस कहानी से हमें यह भी सीखने को मिलता है कि जो होता है अच्छे के लिए ही होता है। अगर ब्रायन एक्टन किसी बड़ी कंपनी में काम करते तो शायद Whatsapp का विचार नहीं आता।

टेक्नोलॉजी के क्षेत्र में नया मॉडल लाने वाले ब्रायन एक्टन को सलाम।
