ach person to write their name on a balloon with a marker. The 500 balloons were collected and put in another room, and the participants were given five minutes to find the balloon with their name on it. As they searched frantically for their own names, they collided with one other, pushed others around, and created utter chaos. At the end of the five minutes, no one had found their own balloon. No one. The new instructions were for 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. This happens in our lives. We look frantically for happiness, not knowing where it is. Yet our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness, and you will find your own happiness.
