“One of the sanest, surest and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others.”
—Robert A. Heinlein, American Science Fiction Author
Do you like Chinese food? I do.
I must admit that in addition to enjoying the wide variety of tastes, textures, and aromas of Chinese food, I also enjoy the little ritual at the end of the meal. Yes, I very much look forward to opening my fortune cookie.
Imagine, for a moment, that all your future fortune cookies are “good fortune” cookies, and that not only do you get benefit from the one intended specifically for you, but you also get a boost of happiness from those of your dining companions.
How can you bolster your own life satisfaction by experiencing the added joy and fulfillment through the good fortune of others?
