Happiness is easy some of the happiest people i have met where very poor people who worked 12 hour days and made 25 dollars a week .
The american economy is build on fostering perpetual dissatisfaction ..with heavily conditioned happiness .. and if someone is too happy .. a majority of the people around them will bring up the list of issues in their lives to deflate or bring down the persons happiness ..
you can be happy ..without achieving anything but just by removing many of the condition for being happy and stopping the thought and actions that cause you to be unhappy .
it does not matter how much money you have or do not have .. if you don't know how to be happy .. and how to remove or block thing that intend to make you undhappy .. the more money you get ... a good chubk of it will end up going to counseling , or medications both legal and illegal ..to make you feel better ..
health and happiness .. can be achieved without being wealthy or rich..
now ..that being said or written .. the critical factor in life ..is excitement and experience ..the economy we are moving into ..and a huge chunk of the economy we are in finds the greatest amount of money being spent for better experience and excitement ..
there are people in happy but boring lives who end up destroying their relationship for a bit of excitement or their health .. or their careers ..
you should have a list of things that excite you ..that when you do them you can pretty much tell anyone you care about ..that you have done it .. and stay away from the stuff that a few picture on face book or a video on youtube can result in a bit of missery or lots of missery ..
having the financial resources to do things that excite you .. is important ..happy but bored and broke has it's limits ..
