But Does It Make You Happy?

Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

Human beings are natural adversity seekers.  

It has been said that if we do not have enough adversity in our lives, we will create it ourselves.  How?  By picking fights with our spouse, thrill seeking, spending, yoyo dieting, botox, exercising obsessively, drinking and having affairs.

The true nature of contentment lies in hard work and creative effort.  

True happiness, the kind that comes from within, is attained by commitment, persistence and personal achievement.  It comes from pushing yourself every day to achieve more and be more.  It comes from battling against the odds, to do something that is good for you, and brings your closer to where you want to be.

If you’re looking for happiness, then money won’t bring it.  

Money comes as an effect of doing something in which you feel your contribution was valuable.  Money in itself, will never bring sustainable happiness, or personal reward.

Do not make money your goal, if you are looking for greater happiness.

Instead, find the thing that you love, and concentrate on doing more of it.
