The Story – The Extremely Wealthy Gas Station Attendant

…this story is taken from Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives by Dan Millman…

…a young man named Dan had a teacher who he called Socrates…

…Socrates was very wise, and was also a gas station attendant…

…so one day Dan and Socrates were attending to a limo…

…and after, Dan said, “Do you think rich folks like that are happier than poor stiffs like us?”…

…then Socrates replied “I’m extremely rich Dan.  In fact, you have to be rich to be happy.”

 

…then he drew the following math equation:

SATISFACTION
HAPPINESS = —————————

DESIRES

…and he told Dan that happiness is when you can satisfy your desires…

…and so if you have very large desires you need to do more to satisfy them…

…or you can have very few desires and it’s very easy to satisfy them…

…so if you can be happier with less, then you are extremely wealthy…

Conclusion

…do you think you have to be rich to be happy now?

…rich in that everything you desire is satisfied!
