Lessons from the Balloon

Once a group of 50 people were attending a seminar.

Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity.
He started giving each one 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 told to go that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, 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.

After that each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it back to the person whose name was written on it.

Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.

The speaker then explained- this is exactly what 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.
Make others happy first; then you will get your own happiness.

Is this not what you are looking for?

Be Happy and Smile Always... Have a Wonderful Day...

Love more,serve more. Help ever, hurt never. ​....

...and spread HAPPINESS !!!​
