Where Is Happiness – Story

Once a group of 500 people was attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity.<>

He started giving each person a balloon. Each person was then asked to write their name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.<>

The people were then let into that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written on it within 5 minutes.<>

Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.<>

At the end of 5 minutes, no one could find their own balloon.<>

Then, the speaker asked each person to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.<>

The speaker then began, “This is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.<>

Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life… the pursuit of happiness.”<>

Closing thoughts: The story above is a great way to teach us all to share and that there is nothing wrong with relying on others from time to time.<>

If people could all stop and think about how they can help each other out from time to time, the world would be a much happier place. <>
Debriefing of the story<>

You would have heard many people saying – “if you help others than all the people will take benefit of you and you will never earn more.” This is a completely false statement!<>

In short term, yes you may not benefit but in the long term, your benefit is more than you can ever imagine. <>

Therefore always think about how your product/service/job can be made more beneficial to others and not about how it can benefit you.<>

Never forget the words of zıg zıglar – “you can have everythıng ın lıfe you want ıf you wıll just help other people get what they want.”<>
