Money, Happiness and Goals
Many people believe: when I’ll be wealthy, I’ll be happy.
Having more financial freedom, may give us more choices and yet more choices doesn’t necessarily make us happy, or happier.
So what does contribute to our happiness?
Happiness is about being fulfilled, about feeling good inside, so even when we have more money, when we’ve bought the things we want – goods, services, holidays, and so on. After the initial purchase and that momentarily good or excited feeling we tend to default to whatever we were feeling before; if you weren’t happy before you went shopping you’re most likely to go back to not being happy after the shopping.
What tends to give people a sense of fulfilment is having a goal, a purpose, a raison d’être. In other words, having something to wake up for, to get up for, to strive towards.
When we are working on our goal, we feel purposeful, useful, and we tend to feel of value or valued – either in our mind or by others. This is more likely to make us feel good, to feel happy.
Yes, money is a very useful resource and yet there are many people who have lots of money who are not happy.
Whereas, having purpose, goals, reason for being, makes us feel good, valued and as a result, much happier.
