I have seen people who are extremely wealthy and possess all good things in life. At first, when we look at them we may assume that they might be the happiest people on earth because they are successful. I know of a friend who runs a successful business but every time I meet him, he complains of being burnt out and lonely. He is one of those successful persons who I know isn’t happy.

On the other hand, I know people who are not successful and don’t have great possessions yet enjoy their life to the fullest. They spend quality time with their family and make the best of what they have.

Please do not misunderstand me. I am not saying all wealthy people are unhappy people. In fact, I would like to be a wealthy person myself and that does not mean that I will end up being unhappy.

All I am saying is that Happiness and Success are two different things and should be perceived that way. Reason? Well, many people think that when they become successful they will be happier which is not true.
