There once lived a man who was born into a poor family. His birth was elaborately celebrated because he was the only son after seven girls.
His father decided to give him the best in life, so he worked hard in order to raise money for his education. The boy too was intelligent and so, at an early age, he started school-about a year before his agemates and his father thought "What an Achievement".
His intelligence prompted his local government to give him scholarship for his secondary school education and his father said "What an Achievement".
While in secondary school, he concentrated well on his studies and had the best result in the state for his final exams. The state government therefore decided to give him scholarship to study any course he wanted in any University of any country of his choice. This made him think "What an Achievement".
He decided to study medicine in the UK and after his study abroad, he came back to his country. He got a job in one of the best teaching hospitals in the country. Several years later, he decided to set up his own hospital. Later, the hospital became well known and it turned out to be one of the biggest and the best in the country. He acquired wealth and his life got better and he said to himself "What an Achievement".
He then got married, had a very lovely family and his life became even sweeter and all the while he was saying to himself "What an Achievement".
On one fateful day, he slept and woke up at the other side of the divide, and when he got to the entrance of the heavenly city, he was asked for his achievements while on earth. He happily tabled down all he thought he had achieved, but alas the ultimate achievement was missing. Thus, he was turned away from the gate of heaven to the place prepared for those who hadn't got the Ultimate Achievement.
However, he was lucky to wake up to life again, for it was all a dream. He was opportuned to have a second chance to live and this time, he sought the ultimate achievement and he got it in the Anchor of Achievers, the Ultimate one. Then he said "Truly, I've got the Ultimate Achievement".
