Ambition & happiness

October 22nd, 2020

I do not remember that I watch any of Eva movies and I do not know whether this is her saying personally or saying of character she play but I love this and other few that attributed to her

Most of people mistakenly think that happiness is related to what can be seen by others as success so they work hard to amaze others by their capability to do things some time without enjoying them or even suffering by doing them
This remind me an old story that I read in so many versions one of which goes like this

A young man was fishing with his rod and enjoying his drink on the rocky sea shore when a wealthy gentleman greet him and asked what are you doing?

The young man: as you see I am fishing
The wealthy gentleman: why yo do not sell your rod and buy a net
The young man: why
The wealthy gentleman: You will be able to catch more fish
The young man: then what
The wealthy gentleman: then you sell it and buy a boat
The young man: then what
The wealthy gentleman: You can go deeper in the see and catch even more
The young man: then what
The wealthy gentleman: you sell more fish and buy a bigger fishing boat go to high see and catch more variety of fish that can be sold for higher price
The young man: then what
The wealthy gentleman: then you become rich hire people to work for you and relax and enjoying your time
The young man: I am relaxing now and enjoying my time

It is a funny story, yes but it make us ask our self dos our ambition prevent us from being happy

Now are you enjoying your life or amusing others?, comment please
