Black Balloon

The same thing applies to humans. It is what is inside that counts. The thing inside us that helps us Go Up in life is ‘Our Outlook’.

Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great.

There was a man who made his living selling balloons at streets. He had all colors of balloons Including Red, Yellow, Green.

Whenever business was slow, he would release a helium filled balloons into the air and when the children saw it go up, they all wanted to buy one. They would come up to him, buy a balloon and his sales would go up again.

He continues this process all day.

One day, a little boy who was watching balloon seller intriguingly, came near and asked, “If you release a black balloon, would that also fly?”

Moved by the boy’s concern, the man replied with empathy. “Son, it is not the color of the balloon, it is what inside that makes it go up.”

The same thing applies to humans. It is what is inside that counts. The thing inside us that helps us Go Up in life is ‘Our Outlook’. Outlook is defined as general attitude towards life. In other words, your outlook is your attitude which becomes your reactions. Take charge of your daily outlook and change it for the better. Use your outlook as a defense against negativity. Looking through the prism of your own confidence, you’ll see success where others see failure. Practice to fill your mind with lighter and positive thoughts, and I am sure you will feel much lighter and loaded with energy.

If you don't practice forgiveness, you might be the one who pays most dearly. By embracing forgiveness, you can also embrace peace, hope, gratitude and joy. Consider how forgiveness can lead you down the path of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
