I wonder if successful people are really happy with their lives. Or if a very poor person can be truly happy. I have often heard other people defines happiness with success or success boils down to happiness, but if you really examine it closely, that is not the case so. Why did successful people like marilyn monroe, Prince Albert of Edinburgh, Vincent Van Gogh, among others, committed suicide? How can we be successful and at the same time happy?
I've been very poor, and I've done quite well. At both ends, I've been happy, but I've been happier when I've done well than when I've been poor. I'm just not capable of being happy all the time if I'm worried about how I'm going to feed my family.
Money can remove some of the obstacles to happiness, but it's not a magic solution.
Happiness isn't about success. Happiness is a state of mind, which is about having an understanding about the richness you gain everyday through living and those who have an influence on you to improve upon yourself. You can be happy with your life and what you have in your life without having success.
I think a happy person has discovered the key to success.
