We go through life doing our best to reach our dreams and our goals. We think that once we’ve achieved success, we’ll finally be happy and at peace with the world. This may be true. However, the simple fact is that not everyone’s going to end up successful. Only a small minority will reach the pinnacle of wealth and power. Most of us are going to get stuck living mediocre lives.
So, the question is, does that mean only a small percentage of people are going to live happy lives? Are the rich, powerful, and successful the only ones with the right to be happy?
The answer is, fortunately, no. You need neither money nor power to have a happy and fulfilling life. After all, happiness is a state of mind.
You can have all the money in the world and still be unhappy. On the other side of the coin, you can have no worldly possessions and still live a very happy life.
