Once a group of 50 people were attending a seminar on, “How to be happy?”
Speaker there gave each person a balloon. Everybody was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen.
Then all the balloons were collected and put in adjacent room.
People were now, let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, but it was to be done within 5 minutes.
Everyone was frantically searching for their name, pushing, colliding with each other, and the end result was an utter chaos.But, no one could find a balloon with their name.
After a failed attempt everyone was now 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 to explain his point of view on the exercise,
“This is exactly, what happens in our lives. Each one of us is frantically looking for our own happiness all around, and remains unaware of where it is most of times.
Our happiness lies in helping others reach their happiness. Give happiness to people around you, and you will definitely get your own happiness.”
Make it purpose of your life, so it becomes full of happiness.
