More Money = More Happiness?

“I will be happy when I have more money”

“With money, I can buy whatever things I wanted and do the things that I wanted”

I bet you have that thought in some part of your life, because I do also, sometimes.

But do money really brings happiness? More Money = More Happiness?

I have found out that it is not really true.

Everytime when there is an increment in salary or when receiving a sum of money in terms of bonus, the “happy feel” will only last a few days and after which, it feels normal again.

Because the money just fulfilled my basic daily needs and nothing else. I am still doing the same old things everyday that I do not have much passion in and it is draining my energy!

“Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like.”

– Will Smith

After reading lots of books that I loaned from the friendly neighbourhood library, a healthy hobby that I cultivated not too long ago (only about a year ago), I noticed a common thing in happiness.

The only way to more happiness is to live a fulfilled life.

Waking up energetic in the morning, doing the things that we have interest/passion in.

Focus on the goals that we want to achieve, step by step moving towards attaining it.

Love your loved ones and spending quality time with them.

“Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.” – Jim Rohn

Find out what you want from life and live fully everyday. This will bring more happiness in your life.
