Do what makes you happy. Part 6

I wonder what… 

I often wonder what makes Elon Musk or Bill Gates happy. One of my favourite movies is Pretty Woman. It may not be for the obvious reasons of Richard Gere and Julia Roberts’s chemistry on screen. It is not only because of the great soundtrack.  

It is the lesson in the movie that Julia Roberts’s character teaches Richard Gere. Edward and Vivian are from very different backgrounds and yet a prostitute teaches a businessman to loosen up and relax. There is a scene in the park where Vivian removes Edward’s shoes and socks. He feels the grass with his toes and in a way becomes grounded. His busy life is attributed to his hate towards his father. His vengeance is to prove himself to his dad who had passed away. 

Proving yourself. 

Sure there are times you step up and show the world what you are made of. There are times we go above and beyond what is needed. It could be as simple as helping a baby bird that fell from its nest to helping an elderly woman across the road.  

I have done both and damn it felt good. My son and I helped an old lady across Yonge street in Toronto one day. It was a scene out of a movie. The old lady stepped off the curb about three times and stepped back because the cars kept on coming. We helped her across the road… No, we didn’t record ourselves doing it. No, we didn’t make a big deal out of it. It felt good to do good.  

It feels good to give. 

This is often said but rarely done. For me, even cleaning my closet and giving away the clothes to drop-off locations and thrift stores feel great.  

Much like in Pretty Woman Edward learns that there is more to life than the hustle of 9-5 or in his case it was 6am to 11pm. Learn to enjoy the squirrels in the park.  

People watch and learn about others. Learn to see the joy on the face of an old couple as they take their stroll in the park. Watch kids as they play and chase each other. Watch the dogs sniff each other’s bums and laugh at the puppies as they roll and stumble.  

Watch as the babies peek out of their strollers and wonder about the white clouds, the blue skies or the snowflakes.  

To get back to what makes the rich happy? I cannot speak for those people, but…

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
