According to my research, being rich eliminates approximately 67% of life’s everyday problems, which means a reduction in 67% of the unhappiness you would otherwise experience. But a reduction in unhappiness does not correspond to an increase in happiness. It doesn’t work that way.
True permanent happiness can only be found through fulfillment.
Seeking fulfillment requires that you pursue meaningful dreams and goals. The pursuit of dreams and goals forces you to grow and improve as an individual. And, the more you grow and improve, the more fulfilled you feel.
Tom Corley is an accountant, financial planner and author of “Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to Be Happy and Successful in Life”, “Effort-Less Wealth”, “Change Your Habits Change Your Life”, “Rich Habits Poor Habits” and “Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals.”
This is an insightful article and very consistent with our research. Our book, “Career Aspirations” identifies seven internal motivators that we each share in varying degrees. For example, each of us desires to “belong” and to know that we are “accomplishing something of value”. These are two of those seven “motivators”. Collectively, these uniquely define “fulfillment” when achieved in the right balance.
Simple direct message…much appreciated
