And then what?

Hello,

Today I am going to share with you a story about life, work and happiness.

One day, John was walking in the street and he saw Mike, the neighborhood guy that sits around and relaxes all day long.

  • John then told Mike: Mike, I see you here everyday sitting and doing nothing. Why not get some chewing gum and put them next to you?
  • Mike: what for?
  • John: Like this, people will stop by an buy from you so you can make some money.
  • Mike: and then what?
  • John: with that extra money, you can then not only display chewing gum but also some chocolate and potato chips
  • Mike: and then what?
  • John: with enough money from that you can open a small kiosk and sell more stuff and beverages
  • Mike: and then what?
  • John: you can then open a small grocery store and make more money
  • Mike: and then what?
  • John: from that small grocery store, you can expand to have a bigger shop
  • Mike: and then what?
  • John: you can then aim for a supermarket
  • Mike: and then what?
  • John: you can then buy a house and let the business run itself
  • Mike: and then what?
  • John: you can then sit in your house, relax and worry about nothing
  • Mike: But John, I am already doing that! Can’t you see I am sitting here and relaxing everyday!

And so my friends, often times we keep participating in the rat race, always aiming for more when the simple things are often times already within our reach.
