I heard a story the other day about a group of people at a business conference. Balloons were passed out to each attendee and they were asked to write their name on their balloon, then the balloons were collected. The conference directors then inflated the balloons and placed them all in an empty room. When the conference was concluded for the day, the attendees were taken to the balloon-filled room and asked to find their balloon with their name on it. After searching for what seemed like hours, no one was able to locate their balloon. The director then instructs them to picked up the balloon nearest them and find that person whose name is on it. Within a few minutes, all 500 attendees had their original balloon. The director then tells them how this is an analogy for happiness and life. We all search for our individual happiness, when the key is to help someone else find theirs, which in turn provides you with happiness.
