Rich Businessman : Mr Peter George
Fisherman : Mr Mike DeSilva
City : Toledo Bend Lake Texas in USA
At Fisherman's Village is at the Heart of Toledo Bend, Just West of Carrice Creek Bridge and only a mile West of Pendleton Bridge you'll find yourself at the heart of all that's going on at Toledo Bend Lake. Located on Texas Highway 21/103 (Highway 6 on the Louisiana side) Fisherman's Village is at the only point to cross Toledo Bend Lake between Texas and Louisiana in USA, easy access to all that's going on around the lake in 2 states !
There was once a Businessman who was sitting by the Beach in a small Village Toledo Bend Lake. As he sat, he saw a Fisherman Mike rowing a small Boat towards the Shore having caught quite few big Fish.
The Businessman was impressed and asked Mike,
Mr Peter George : How long does it take you to catch so many Fish ?
Mike replied : Oh, just a short while
Then why don’t you stay longer at Sea and catch even more?” The Mr Peter George was astonished.
This is enough to feed my whole Family, Mike said.
The Mr Peter George then asked, “So, what do you do for the rest of the Day ?
Mike replied, Well, I usually wake up early in the Morning, go out to Sea and catch a few Fish, then go back and play with my Kids.
In the Afternoon, I take a nap with my Wife, and evening comes, I join my buddies in the Village for a Drink — we play Guitar, sing and Dance throughout the Night.
Mr Peter George offered a suggestion to Mike
I am Mr Peter George PhD in Business Management.
I could help you to become More Successful Person. From now on, you should spend more time at Sea and try to catch as many Fish as possible.
Lets Make a Big Business Plan.
Buy a Lap Top, Get Net Connection, Open Facebook and Linkedin Accounts Dont Worry Mike I would help you :-)
When you have saved enough Money, you could buy a Bigger Boat and catch even more Fish. Soon you will be able to afford to buy more Boats, set up your own Company Mike Fish Co, your own Production Plant for Canned Food and Distribution Network. By then, you will have moved out of this Village and to Sao Paulo, where you can set up Headquarters to manage your other Branches.”
The Fisherman Mike continues, “And after that?”
Mr Peter George laughs heartily,
After that, you can live like a King in your own House, and when the Time is right, you can go Public and float your Shares in the Stock Exchange, and you will be Rich like Mr Peter George [ Me ]
Mike asks, “And after that?”
Mr Peter George says,
“After that, you can finally retire, you can move to a House by the Fishing Village, wake up early in the Morning, catch a few Fish, then return home to Play with Kids, have a nice Afternoon Nap with your Wife, and when Evening comes, you can join your buddies for a Drink, play the Guitar, sing and Dance throughout the Night!”
Mike was puzzled, ? ?
Isn’t that what I am Doing Now ?
Happiness has very Different Meanings for Different People
Happiness has different meanings for different People. For some, Happiness means Money, for some it means playing with Children; for some it means expansion of Business, for some it means planting a Tree.
Happiness is defined as a Mental or Emotional State of well-being characterized by Positive or pleasant Emotions ranging from Contentment to intense Joy. Some also define it in terms of living a Good Life or flourishing, rather than just an Emotion.
In the present World, the Happiness Quotient is getting measured in materialistic terms. As people are becoming more-and-more Rich, they are automatically being rated as Happy. But is it really the fact ? Are the Richest people the Happiest ? Lets find out.
Money can make you able to Feed, Clothe and House yourself. But, once you are able to do it, each extra Rupee does not make much of a difference. As-soon-as these basic needs are met, Money only boosts Happiness if we have more than our Friends, Colleagues and Neighbours. So, there is a limit to which Money can make us Happy.
There is something called as ‘Aspiration Gap’. It means the Gap between what people already have and what they aspire to have. Amazingly, Studies have found out this Gap to be inversely Proportional to Happiness. It has shown that the larger the Gap, the less happier people are and vice versa. This explains why we are never satisfied with our Salary increases. This explains why our List keeps on becoming longer, when we acquire the Goods we desire. This explains why we are never satisfied and why the Good Life always remains out of reach.
Now, Just Sit Back and Analyze YourSelf.
a) Were you not Happy when you saw a small cute Child talk in his cutish Language?
b) Were you not Happy when you saw a Sparrow hopped on your Window and was trying to get inside?
c) Were you not Happy when you saw your Nation’s Flag fly high?
d) Were you not Happy when you heard your favourite Song running on the Radio and started humming it?
e) Were you not Happy when your Dog started wagging its Tail when it saw you at a Distance?
f) Were you not Happy when you saw a Youth helped an Old Woman cross the Road?
g) Were you not Happy when your Mother cooked your favourite Food after you went to your Hometown after a long time or when your Kid ran to you lovingly after you came home after a hard Day of Work?
h) Were you not Happy when you saw Droplets of Rain falling on Dry Earth?
i) Were you not Happy when you saw a Flock of Birds fly high on the Sky freely?
Of course, you were.
It has been discovered by many that Happiness is neither a Place you visit nor a Dream you achieve. Happiness is just Happiness. It comes from small things. We can feel it in our surroundings.
I am not saying we should not desire for Good Things in Life or aspire for more. In fact we must. That is the Mantra for progress. But, we should not attach ourselves to it emotionally. We should not find solace in our Successes or get distressed in Failures.
Our innate feeling of ‘Happiness’ is much bigger than this and we should not let these outer Things and outside World dictate our Lives.
Real Happiness is within you and if you keep your Hearts open, you will find it everywhere around you too.
“Happiest people don’t necessarily have the Best of everything; they just make the Best of everything they have.”
“Being Happy doesn’t mean that everything is Perfect. It means that you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.”
Finally, Happiness is just a state of mind.
