Happiness of others 

Okay, so this isn’t much of my own thought. But, it does make you think. It made me think. So I wanted to share it.

Good Read. Credit: I’m not sure.

‘Once a group of 50 people were attending a seminar.

Suddenly the speaker stopped and started giving each person a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.

Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, pushing, colliding with each other, and there was utter chaos.

At the end of 5 minutes, no one could find their own balloon. Now each one was asked 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 began: This is exactly 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.’ 

“Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness, you will get your own happiness.” 

Like Zig Ziglar said, “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”
