          There was a man who made a living selling balloon at a fair. He had all colours of balloons, including red,yellow,blue and green. Whenever business was slow, he would release a helium-filled balloon into the air and when the children saw it go up, they all wanted to buy one. They would come up to him,  buy a balloon, and his sales would go up again. He continued this process all day. One day, he felt someone tugging at his jacket. He turned around and saw a little boy who asked, "if you release a black balloon, would that also fly.? Moved by the boy's concern, the man replied with empathy, "Son, it is not the colour of the balloon, it is what  is inside that makes it go up."
        The same thing applied to our lives. It is what inside that counts. The thing inside of us makes us go up is our attitude. Have ever wondered why some individuals, organizations or countries are more successful than others.
        It is not a secret. These people simply think and act more effectively. They have learned how to do so by investing in the most valuable asset-- people. I believe that the success of an individual, organization or country, depends on the quality of their people.
       Experience has shown that human resources is the most valuable asset of any business or country. It is more valuable than capital or equipment. unfortunately, it is also the most wasted. People can be your biggest asset or your biggest liability.
