How much is enough? It is our nature to keep looking for that final success, which would bring us happiness. Here’s a little story that shows how much is needed to be really happy.

How much is enough? It is our nature to keep looking for that final success, which would bring us happiness. True happiness can be ours, here and now. We only need to choose to be happy. Here’s a parable that shows how much is needed to be really happy.

Once upon a time, there lived a King who, despite his luxurious lifestyle, was not happy at all.

One day, the King came upon a servant who was singing happily while he worked. This fascinated the King; Why was he, the Supreme Ruler of the Land, unhappy and gloomy, while a lowly servant had so much joy?

The King asked the servant, ‘Why are you so happy?’

The man replied, ‘Your Majesty, I am nothing but a servant, but my family and I don’t need too much – just a roof over our heads and warm food to fill our tummies.’

The king sought the advice of his most trusted advisor. After hearing the story, the advisor said, ‘Your Majesty, the servant has not yet joined “The 99 Club”.’

“People who have enough to be happy but are never content, because they’re always wanting a little more.”

 

‘The 99 Club? And what is that?’ the King inquired.

The advisor replied, ‘To truly know what The 99 Club is, just place 99 Gold coins in a bag and leave it at this servant’s doorstep.’

When the servant saw the bag, he let out a great shout of joy ‘so many gold coins’. He began to count them. After several counts, he was at last convinced that there were only 99 coins.

He wondered, ‘What could’ve happened to that last gold coin? Surely, no one would leave 99 coins!’

He looked everywhere, but that final coin was elusive. Finally, he decided that he was going to work harder than ever to earn that 100th gold coin.

From that day, the servant was a changed man. He was overworked, grumpy, and blamed his family for not helping him make that 100th gold coin.

And he had stopped singing while he worked.

“If you can’t be happy with what you already have, you will never be happy with what you don’t have yet.”

 

Witnessing this drastic transformation, the King was puzzled. The advisor said, ‘Your Majesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club.’

He continued, ‘The 99 Club is a name given to those people who have enough to be happy but are never content, because they always want that extra one, saying to themselves: “Let me get that one final thing and then I will be happy for life.”

We can be happy with very little in our lives, but the minute we are given something bigger and better, we want more – and even more! We lose our sleep, our happiness, as the price for our growing needs and desires.

That is “The 99 Club”
