Listen to the Story


Once upon a time, there was a wealthy man named John. He had everything he could ever want - a big house, fancy cars, and expensive clothes. However, John was not happy. He felt like something was missing in his life. One day, John met a poor man named Mike. Despite Mike's lack of money, he seemed to be very happy and content with his life. John was curious and asked Mike how he could be so happy without any money. Mike said to John that happiness originates from within and that it cannot be purchased with money. He mentioned that he had learned to value the uncomplicated things in life, such as spending time with family and friends, having a satisfying meal, or going for a walk in the outdoors. John realized that Mike was right. He had been focusing too much on material possessions and had forgotten about the things that truly mattered. From that day on, John started to change his ways.
