There was a man who made a living by selling balloons. He had all colors of balloons including red, yellow, blue and green. Whenever his business was slow, he would release a helium-filled balloon into the air and when the children saw it go up, they would come to this balloon seller and wanted to buy one. The children would come to him, buy balloons from him and his sales would go up again. One day, a small boy came to him and asked him: “If you release a black balloon, would it also fly?” The balloon seller replied: “Son, it isn’t the color of the balloon, it is what is inside that makes it go up.”
The same thing applies to our lives. It is what is inside that makes us feel proud or be respected by others. The thing inside us that makes us go up is our attitude.
