Some years ago, in the early stages of my career, there was a question posed to all the participants in the training session.
The question was, if you could any super power, what would it be and why?
Many people gave a variety of answers, some interesting, some predictable.
When I had a chance to speak, I said I would make everyone happy forever.
While being dismissed as impossible but good idea. I was asked the proverbial why?
I said, if you are happy, nothing else matters and if you are not, nothing matters then either!
Coming to think of it, it was not a bad superpower to have and probably much needed now.
It was only much later that I discovered that the great John Lennon echoed my words of wisdom ☺️
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
