Happiness = Love + Health + Wealth

47 replies
I've always been a believer that in order to be happy you must have the trifecta: Love, health and wealth.



What do you think?
People tend to believe that in order to be happy you just need money (wealth), but money is not worth if you have no one to spend it with (love) nor if you're going to die (health). Just want to hear your thoughts about this.

    You are forgetting:
    Sleep
    Air planes
    Mimosas
    Lobster
    Tropical beaches

    I suppose those could be included under health wealth and happiness, but I'm just sayin...

    Imo, there isn't a formula for true happiness.

    I believe being happy is a matter of choice. Who says you can't be happy if all of those 3 things aren't currently in place in our lives?

    The problem with that formula is if one of those things are missing then you no longer have happiness.

    I totally agree with Fred1. There's really no formula for true happiness. Every person has his/her own idea or thought of happiness. Maybe these three factors (love+health+wealth) gives happiness to a certain person but not to others.

    As long as you have your health and are loved, and experience love, wealth is the least important. However, I used to have all three, now I'm not experiencing much of the wealth these days as I've started a new business.

    What's the fastest way of generating wealth for my family, so we can remember how to live without the stress of paying our monthly obligations? We never used to be this stressed, I used to be referred to as a "writer" because I "wrote" so many checks! I just want to enjoy my health and my love life, and live again without the financial stress... so, again, what is the fastest way of acquiring wealth - a minimum of $5k a month... not much from where we used to be.

      Happiness is up to every individual's definition.
      But what I think you've pointed out is what everyone would wished for.

      I would be happy with love, health and a little wealth.

      Some people living in the poorest countries in the world are also the happiest in the world.

    I don't agree. Many poor people who love their jobs and families feel happy, many disabled people who win Olympic medals feel happy and many big drug dealers who don't love anyone except themselves also feel happy. Happiness is just a feeling of content. This means if you want to be happy, you can be happy no matter you have wealth, health, love or not.

    I would go with Love and health as these two are the basic component of happiness. Although wealth can increase your happiness and comfort you but it is not necessary for happiness.
    You can't say that all the people who are not wealthy are not happy..

    If you have to depend on anything outside you, for your own happiness, you are, in effect, a slave, owned by something other than yourself.

    Doing one thing to get another, is one of the most significant things wrong with any spiritual being. And any "need" means the being is far from clean, in spiritual terms.

    honestly ..westerners are some of the biggest whiners in the world ..

    happiness is easy..when you don't let the thing you dont have make you misserable once you have a safe place to sleep and a full belly ..

    extract yourself from the victim culture ..and if you get upset because there was to little froth in your esspresso..or what ever petty freaking reason.. true happiness will be hard ..

    there are college kids ..who need counseling if they get less than an a..

    stop doing stuff to be happy.. unless you first stop doing the things that cause your misery

    I think health counts the most in the end. Money is just part of life which sometimes you have more or less.

    I don't think wealth plays an important part in my happiness. I prefer to think of it as a tool. Will I be miserable when I'm poor? Maybe, but I'll never put wealth above the other two.

    Health is important to me.
    As for love, I will think of family and friends. These are things that cannot be bought with money.

    I agree with Love - Health - Wealth trifecta.

    All 3 aspects are important and they are kind of dependent on each other.

    If I am not healthy I cannot earn money well and I cannot support my friends and family.

    If I don't have money, I cannot allow to buy healthy food and cannot help the ones, which are close to me.

    If I don't have love I feel like everything is futile, I get depressed (so I am not healthy) and money doesn't make me happy.

    I used to believe this too bro. Until the last 5 months which has changed my entire perspective & outlook on life....

    I used to think I need this I need that. I have to do this I have to do that.

    But the truth was happiness is a state of mind. Therefore its a matter of choice.

    I've lived in 3rd world countries where people aren't sure what they're going to eat tomorrow & they were happy as FARK. What a blessing that was to witness that.

    And i've lived in Australia & NZ where people are blessed with 'so many things' & yet they're depressed, anxious, & borderline psychotic!

    So for me bro... with everything thats happened in 2016 i CHOSE to be happy. And I have been. Even after multiple losses (nana, father, wife, girlfriend, step daughter, acl rupture & tear, tore all tendons in 1 ankle) I'm still here & i'm still happy.

    Nothing is 'needed' to be happy. Just a decision. Just my 2cents. Pece & love

    That's what I thought when I was much younger. IF ONLY I had love I would be happy. IF ONLY I was healthier and stronger (had a great physique, better endurance, more flexibility, clearer skin, athleticism), I would be happy. IF ONLY I had wealth or more savings in the bank, or have the financial freedom to buy whatever I want whenever I would be happy.

    But now I would rather define happiness as MY CHOICE. I choose to be happy now because I am alive, even if I don't have that great love, health or wealth. Happiness then becomes being mindful and enjoying the process or journey to working on achieving whatever my next goal would be.

    This is an old quote from the Dalai Lama: “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
    Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

    I am sure many have read it and understood it. But still few TRY to live fully in the present.

    Yes. It's a good guide for living a balanced life. Love + Health + Wealth are so interconnected that not paying attention to one area can affect your overall happiness.

    If you think about it, it's hard to be healthy when you don't have wealth. Healthy food cost a lot and fitness memberships or buying equipment when you are working out at home. Love also suffers when there is lack of wealth or constant fighting about money issues. Love also provides the motivation to build wealth and stay healthy. We work longer hours and make sacrifices to provide for our family. We constantly remind ourselves to eat better and work out so we can spend more years with our loved ones.

    With this thinking, happiness is really earned and something you work hard for. It's not just a choice or a matter of thinking oneself into a 'state of happiness'.

    Joke aside, yes I agree that you need all 3 to be happy. Health, Love and Money (I've said money and not wealth, because you don't necessarily need millions of dollars, big mansions, 10 cars and so on. You just need enough money to have a decent life and NOT have to worry about money anymore).

    Apparently, there's a TED Talk about a Harvard study, and it showed the key to happiness was to have good relationships- spouse, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. That would fall under the 'Love' category, but encompasses much more than just romantic love.

    However, I think it's hard to have a good life unless you have some amount of wealth. Definitely don't have to be a millionaire, but at least not living paycheck to paycheck.

    I'm really big on starting with Love these days Max

    Start with Love of God. This Love reflects back to you, and you will love yourself that much more. Once you fall in love with you it's easier to love people you meet every day, online or offline.

    I feel in harmony with folks. Because I'm loving God and myself persistently these days. Then as my love grows the wealth and happiness and all that good stuff flows in. Yep; we let it in. All flows to us.

    Thanks for sharing

    We need money for comfortable living in physical terms but we all know there are some things money can't buy. Having said that money can pay for the best medical treatment and expensive dating sites! It does make a significant difference but I agree having all three is the ideal.

    I totally agree with you...in fact, could not agree more! But first and foremost, in my mind, is health, 'cause if you don't have that, you most likely will not have the other two. You can be happy with love and happy with money/wealth at any time, but it seems it would be very difficult to be happy (let alone to concentrate on the other two) if you are sick, in constant pain or dying.
