Once a big group of thousand people, were attending a seminar. Suddenly during the presentation, 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. However there is a problem with that approach.
If you want success, it follows straight logic. You work hard and smart, you succeed.
However happiness follows Inverse Logic. Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them there’s and you will get your own.
So remember when you want happiness, the way to do it is find other’s their balloons”
