True happiness can only be found when you strive for a meaningful life. A meaningful life means you believe your life added value to family, friends and society.

A meaningful life can be found in raising well-mannered, respectful, kind, compassionate children who are also productive members of society. It can also be found by pursuing and realizing dreams/goals. It can also be found in adding value to the lives of others through service or by creating something.

Unfortunately, there are many misguided souls who believe happiness can only be found by achieving a certain degree of wealth, or celebrity, or power or influence.

According to my research, being rich eliminates approximately 58% of life’s problems, which means a reduction in 58% of the unhappiness you experience. But a reduction in unhappiness does not correspond to an increase in happiness. So, while wealth will reduce unhappiness, it will not necessarily increase happiness. Wealth can increase happiness, however, when that wealth is used to help improve the lives of loved ones, friends, the poor, etc.
