Which Comes First: Success or Happiness?
“Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.” Dale Carnegie
I was reading a self-improvement book last week when I came by this amazing quotation. It had me mesmerised for the majority of that week.
The more times I read it, the clearer it became. I ask you to read it several times to see the real difference between success and happiness.
It’s quite profound.
Most of the world population are under the disillusion that success, whatever it is to them individually, will make them happy.
Money will make them happy, owning or running their own business will make them happy.
There are far too many millionaires and billionaires who are unhappy, some even miserable.
I believe it to be the other way round.
More often than not happiness makes people more successful.
Let’s face it, when you are in a happy mood, you are by far more effective and productive than when you feel down.
When you’re in high spirits, don’t you whizz through your work, goals or objectives?
Don’t you find that you become empowered to achieve more, perhaps much more when you’re in a state of joy and happiness?
Think about it.
Instead of striving to succeed so that you will then, and only then, be happy, it might be more valuable to first be happy to pursue the success that you want.
Have a happy day.

We cannot change the circumstances that brought people to where they are, but we can change their thinking, from within, to improve the quality of their present and future lives.
