There was a man once Named Jason Stuart. He had been through lot of difficult phases of his life. He was broken to that extent that his forgot who he really was once. He was a very successful businessman. He definitely was the one who was blessed with a business mind. He used to own a chemical factory in Sacramento; CA. Everything was working fine for him until something terrible happen which ripped him apart both mentally and psychologically.
There was a short circuit that set the entire factory on fire. There were massive explosions due the amount of the chemicals available in the factory. The entire factory was demolished, destroyed, squashed in no time. The intensity of the fire was that the fire brigade couldn’t save the factory to be destroyed. They tried everything that they could but all in vain. Within some hours Jason Stuart became zero. He was in under several contracts with other companies to supply the chemicals, and had taken loans from banks to complete the orders. That seems like a nightmare but it was not it’s the reality of life one cannot keep itself apart from it.
The man was so frustrated with the way the life had treated him. All he was looking for at that time was a small measure of peace to get out of the ashes of that incident. He felt so depressed and blue. Nothing was actually going his way. One day a man came to him and he asked for some financial help Jason said that he had nothing left but he didn’t turn the man down he gave him some money by selling some goods from his house. After the man had left Jason, he felt relieved by helping the man, It gave him the peace of mind that he longed been looking for.
He realized that one get happy by making someone else happy. Helping out the deserving gave him the happiness that he missed for a long time. He started helping people in any possible way that he could. He learned to respect the old people of society. One day a friend came to him asked to form a partnership, Jason turn him down because he didn’t want to start his old business again, he was afraid that it might cause him the same damage that it’s once did. As the time passes and Jason once again gone busy with the social work. A thought struck to his mind that why not to start over the business again with his friend at partnership, where he don’t have participate with the capital but only with the skills that once made him a successful businessman, In that way he can help more deserving people of the society, he got very excited about it. He visited his friend and signed the contract and they started production in about three weeks.
Jason was back in the business and accelerating at a fascinating rate. Jason kept on working at his social work; he use to separate an amount every month for the deserving people, his business flourished and he became one of the leading businessman in the country.
Happiness is a feeling, and depends on person and circumstances that what makes man happy. It was the gesture and act of helping others which gave happiness and the peace of mind to Jason Stuart, although he suffered a lot but he didn’t faith. He was positive and GOD helped him with his way, and as he shined again like a star in the Galaxy. That actually was the journey of Jason Stuart to find happiness in his life again.
Happiness… consists in giving, and in serving others.
