Subject of Happiness and Money
Emotions are never the source of solutions for people living the modern world. This is especially true when it comes to financial matters. If one does not have the proper knowledge on finance, he or she will most likely make more bad decisions rather than good ones. The factor to be blamed is education. People who are successful have proper knowledge. How and where do they get it? Obviously, they have gotten it from reliable and trusted sources that work. But do not let that deter you from making it big. You have only one life to live.
Often times, when people fail, they blame. For example, in financial crisis, there seems to be always something to be blamed upon. Some folks might even go as far as to believe the causes of all major financial mistakes and errs were caused by impulsive and incorrect behaviors in handling money. And that these behaviors stemmed from childhood days, which form the habits that they have currently. Again, this is a form of blaming already.
But diving through your past and looking at what could make you decide itself, is an important thing to do. It is said that self assessment is the longest journey one has to take in life. By all means, no blaming should occur, not even blaming your own parents.
Low income does not correlate directly to being unhappy. Take a look at some poor people. You can see that they are the happiest people in the world. While this is being observed, some people believe that the more money you make, all unhappiness will go away. Some financially sound people might not be healthy in their emotional aspects.
The small little things in life that make us should be appreciated. Things like laughter, a family to go home to, close and trusted friends are what we truly live for. There is no point of trying to make a lot of money trying to override all of these great values in life. These little things make us.
