Happiness and Success – Which One Comes First

We’re taught from a young age that achieving specific milestones of success — getting good grades, getting into a great college, having a prestigious career, having a certain amount of money saved, living in the right house or neighborhood, marrying the right person, having talented or well-behaved kids, etc. — will make us happy.

Happy people tend to choose meaningful work and are more effective, productive, focused, creative and successful than unhappy people. Happy people also tend to create relationships that are far happier than those created by unhappy people.
If we are more financially successful and create healthier relationships when we are happy, the big question is: What creates happiness?

    Wow, that’s amazing. I feel myself on the way to discover what makes me really happy. I’m trying hard to reach success and hapiness at the same time.

    Is that possible?

    Thanks for sharing that, I’m waiting for the next ones. ;)
