Hello Friends, I hope all is well with you today! Today, we are going to cover one of the ultimate questions in life: “Can money buy you happiness?” Everyone has a different take on this, and everyone’s take is valid. Mr. Nahas, do you think money can buy you happiness? Well…Yes and no. Let me begin to explain a bit.
I want to first start off by saying happiness comes from within, no amount of money can make a person be truly happy, only temporarily happy. Happiness is something that you yourself must find, and that starts off by having a heart to heart with yourself. As I said before, money only amplifies who you truly are. If you are sad and depressed before, money will amplify that; however, if you are a happy camper on the other hand, then that is where money can take you to another level depending on what makes you happy. My advice to everyone is to do some soul searching and get your happiness and mind right, so you don’t be sad and depressed with money because having money is a challenge sometimes due to the fact that people you barely talk to will start wanting the secrets or some money. There are a lot of celebrities that had it all and committed suicide because they were unhappy. They had the money, they had the power, and they had the fame, but they just weren’t truly happy. In that case, money will never buy you ever lasting happiness, only temporary happiness. Let’s say you are a multi-millionaire, and you buy the Lamborghini you’ve always wanted. You will definitely be happy for a little but at some point, the car just becomes mehh. Mr. Nahas, do you think I should just lose sight of financial freedom and become happy first? Well, that’s a slightly difficult question. I would work hard at doing both, soul searching and finding happiness as well as putting in the effort to live your best life financially. This way, you are achieving both! But then again… I would rather cry in a Rolls-Royce than a Toyota… All jokes aside, I would work on both!
At the same time, I do believe that money can buy you happiness in some cases but not in the ways you might think. It’s not cars or fancy stuff but rather the freedom to do what you want and when you want. Let’s say your parents or some of your loved ones worked hard their entire life and sacrificed for you, since you have money and are financially free, you can help them retire and live out their days with the freedom and money. Financial Freedom is the ultimate flex as the kids say these days, it allows you to live the life that you truly want to live. Want to just wake up and board a plane? You can. Want to wake up whenever you want and do whatever you want? You can. You can do these things because you are financially free, that is what I mean when I say money can buy you happiness sometimes, but this is only after you completed the previous advice of searching from within.
So friends, money can buy you happiness… in a way but focus more on being happy from within!
