I was going through Bruno's One Minute Email that I subscribed while I was working for VCustomer. It was after a long time that I checked my email account on india.com, where we all registered as it was the only email account accessible there. Oh, sorry, I forgot my way.
One of the recent emails has this old Chinese Proverb:-
If you want hapiness for an hour, take a nap;
If you want hapiness for a day, go fishing;
If you want hapiness for a year, inherit a fortune;
If you want hapiness for a lifetime, help somebody!
"Helping" is a word that needs interpretation. Giving money to a good cause is one way but it's not the only one. Sometimes helping simply means taking the time to listen to someone sharing a hurt, giving someone a helping hand, making an unexpected phone call to wish someone good luck, showing compassion to someone in trouble.
I discovered a long time ago that if I helped people get what they wanted,
I would always get what I wanted and I would never have to worry.
- Anthony Robbins
There is more to hapiness. Just waiting for it and thinking when such and such thing happen I will be happy is foolish. Yes, I am a fool. I am still waiting for something to happen that will make me happy.
Are you a fool too??? Don't be!!!!
