Does having money make you happy? The answer is “yes and no.” It’s yes if you don’t have enough money to provide for food, shelter, and safety and you are able to get enough money to provide for those three essentials. You become much happier very quickly. After that and all the way to billionaires like Jeff Bezos, there is no correlation between money and happiness. In fact, greater amounts of money can contribute to even more stress.

To be truly happy you simply start by choosing to be happy. This sounds obvious or even ridiculous, but it’s actually how it (by it I mean life) works. Happiness is a choice. Anger is a choice. Patience is a choice. Love is a choice. And you can manifest them in your life by simply choosing them. It takes intention, purpose, and tenacity, but you can do this. And here is the really fun part: When you become happier you open up possibilities for ever-increasing abundance and greater levels of happiness. You simply do things better and when you do that, money follows. In ever-increasing amounts.

Money doesn’t make you happy, but being happy CAN make you a lot of money. Give it a try, what have you got to lose?
